Essential Oils

I've worked with thousands of people over the years to help them experience a deep, cellular level of healing, personal growth and success in many different areas of their lives and careers. Essential oils are a big part of my physical, emotional and spiritual health and I encourage my clients to bring them into their lives too.


I have fallen in love with the new  Adaptiv™ Calming Blend from doTERRA. From the moment I first smelled it, I knew this was powerful beyond belief to help the body and mind to stay balanced. The more I use it, the more balanced I feel!


There is the essential oil blend and also capsules. The capsules have GABA in them. GABA has a natural comforting effect and helps reduce feelings of apprehension and fear by decreasing neuronal excitability.* Sometimes called “the brakes of the brain,” because it lowers the activity of neural cells in the brain and central nervous system, it has the effect of moving the brain and the body into lower gear.* By inhibiting neural activity, GABA reduces mental and physical strain.*

If you are looking for just one essential oil blend to help with balance and calm - THIS IS IT!


You can order it here: https://mydoterra.com/stephaniedalfonzo  Click on the link and then search for Adaptiv. (full disclosure, I do make a small commission from every sale.) If you, like me, like to save money, let's talk about enrolling you as a wholesale member (similar to a Costco/BJs membership.)


Dr. Kelly Brogan, MD, a holistic women’s health psychiatrist no longer prescribed antidepressants or anti-anxiety medications for her patients. She says that “the medication itself creates and perpetuates the problem”!


Essential oils are a wonderful natural way to calm stress and anxious feelings...They are being used by more and more hospitals. Many hospitals use just a few oils, while Harris Methodist Fort Worth Hospital uses 33 different essential oils. A study done at their hospital showed more than 51% of participating nurses reported decreased stress levels using lavender and Clary Sage essential oils.


Other essential oils I use to calm stress and anxious feelings  include lavender, clary sage, ylang-ylang, bergamot (found in Earl Grey tea), Roman chamomile(think chamomile tea) and my favorite oil of all frankincense.


You can diffuse essential oils in the air, apply them topically and in some cases take them internally. However, not all essential oils are the same. It’s pretty true that you get what you pay for. The $10 jug of oil that you buy online probably is not pure therapeutic grade essential oil and has chemicals and fillers in it. While in the movie Rotten they are talking about food, this line works for essential oils too: “it's straight out of the drug dealers playbook. Cut your pure product with inexpensive filler to increase volume”.


The only essential oils I recommend are doTERRA, because they are Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade. I am a wellness advocate with doTERRA and would be happy to have a 15 minute complimentary consultation to discuss how essential oils can help you.
