Adaptogens are herbs/roots/fungi used to support the body's natural ability to deal with stress and promote homeostasis. They help the body to adapt.
An adaptogenic oil can help the body energize and relax, or up-regulate and down-regulate, depending on what the body needs. Pretty cool stuff!
These are some of the top adaptogenic oils: Bergamot, Clary Sage, Cedarwood, Copaiba, Frankincense, Geranium, Lavender, Lemon, Peppermint, Rose, Tulsi (Holy Basil), Wild Orange. There are more too!
Of course, I would be remiss if I didn't mention the Adaptiv blend. It is a beautiful option that includes some of the oils listed above!
What is your favorite adaptogenic oil and how does it help you?
