I got myself some Adaptiv Calming Blend a few weeks ago. I LOVE the scent! The scent is bright yet calming and a delight to use! I love it! Something else I love is soap-making and using artisan soaps. The only thing that’s been lacking is the glorious Adaptiv Calming Blend in a soap. doTERRA has a few other awesome scented soaps, like Citrus Bliss Soap and Serenity Bath Bar. But, alas, no Adaptiv. I decided to tackle the problem on my own, and my son wanted to help!
