Today, we're excited to talk to Samantha Lewis—a member of the doTERRA product marketing team—about taking time to slow down and the doTERRA products that can help. Samantha, thank you so much for sitting down with us today.

Samantha Lewis: Happy to be here!

doTERRA: So this is a topic that I think everyone can stand to learn a little bit more about, and that is just taking some time to slow down in the different aspects of our life. My first question is—the first aspect I want to talk about is if I've been running around a little bit too much, what doTERRA products can I use topically to have a comforting massage at the end of the day?

Deep Blue® and AromaTouch®

Samantha: Well, I feel like there really are two go-to blends when you're ready to settle down and recharge. And in my head, the first things that pop up are Deep Blue and AromaTouch. They both have their place in your daily routine because Deep Blue has more invigorating oils, like Wintergreen and Peppermint. I would suggest this blend during the day and not only as part of a comforting massage but also to kind of help you to move on to the next task on your list, you know, keep you going and helps you with any concerns you have.

And then Aroma Touch is a very relaxing and soothing blend. So when you're ready to wind down for the day, AromaTouch can really add that whole-body experience you're looking for.

doTERRA: Those both sound incredible, and it already makes me feel a little bit more relaxed just hearing about them. So next, I want to talk about skincare. So obviously our skin does not like it when we're kind of running ourselves haggard, we've got so much going on. What can I do to slow down and focus on my skincare with doTERRA products?

Immortelle Samantha: Yeah, I totally agree. Our skin can really show what's going on in our life sometimes, and I think we all know how crucial skincare is, so I won't harp on that too much. What's so great about establishing a skincare routine is that it can both jumpstart your day or help you wind down at the end of a long day.

When you're ready to slow things down a bit, Immortelle is truly the perfect addition to your skincare routine. I could talk about the skin benefits of these beautiful wood and floral oils in this blend all day, but I really want to focus on the grounding and calming benefits right now. So while you're nourishing your skin with powerful essential oils, you're also creating an aromatic experience. Just take an extra minute or two, breathe in, breathe out, and focus on your well-being while being kind to your skin.

doTERRA: That is wonderful. And I can attest that Immortelle, first of all, smells amazing, but also it just feels so luxurious when you put it on your skin.

Samantha: Yeah, I totally agree.

doTERRA: Finally, I want to talk about our environment so we can't always control the environment we're in. But when we can, what can I do if it's feeling a little bit hectic, what oils do you recommend?

Purify and Adaptiv

Samantha: I feel like a hectic environment, at least in my life, presents itself mostly in one of two ways. Either my home is pure chaos—dishes pouring out of the sink, unfolded laundry spilling off the couch, and honestly, just straight disorder. Or there is also a hectic life—be that a stressful day at work, family or personal things that came up, or just something that's a bit too much to handle.

I feel like a great way to deal with the first, with your home, is to find some motivation and get things in order. Interestingly enough, I often jump to Purify to help me really clean up. It not only freshens my home throughout the day through diffusion, but I love adding it to my favorite DIY countertop spray. The citrus oils combined with the herbs tend to help encourage a motivating environment, which I feel really helps push out those hectic feelings.

But then if I'm dealing with the latter, hectic life in general, right? My go-to is always the Adaptiv blend. Adaptiv Touch is the oil that's in my purse at all times. I even have one in my car for those little moments during rush hour. But I mean, truly, Adaptiv Touch is my on-the-go solution whenever I'm experiencing a stressful or hectic moment. Plus, it smells great. I don't mind smelling like the refreshing citrus and soothing Magnolia in this amazing calming blend.

doTERRA: I absolutely agree with you there. Adaptiv is one of my favorite smells to have around me.

Samantha: Yeah, it's pretty great.

doTERRA: Samantha, thank you so much for coming on and sharing a little bit of advice on how we can take some time to slow our lives down. We always appreciate it when we get to talk to you.

Samantha: Yeah, thank you so much for having me!
