Ensure purity of your essential oils

One of the simplest first steps to reducing the toxic load in your home is to take a look at what you put into the air you breathe.

We’re exposed to toxins every day from sources we may not even be aware of.

A toxin is any substance that places undue stress on the body. A toxic load is the sum of these substances, accumulated within your body and the burden they place on vital organs at any given time. Toxins can cause imbalances, lead to negative effects on wellness and influence your daily and long-term health.

Although our bodies have built-in protection and filters to help us manage the toxins we encounter, a toxic load too heavy for your body to handle can affect your health fast.

The good news is that you control what you bring into your own home. The goal is to minimize the exposure to toxins you have control over, making your toxic load lighter. You can’t control every toxin you come in contact with, but you get to choose what comes into your home.

One of the simplest first steps to reducing the toxic load in your home is to take a look at what you put into the air you breathe. We all want our homes to smell welcoming. You might be used to lighting a candle or plugging in an air freshener.

Be aware, though, that some of these products actually release synthetic chemicals into the air. Instead of synthetic fragrances, freshen the air in your home naturally with the powerful aromas of pure essential oils. The purity of an essential oil is its most important characteristic, as it affects safety, effectiveness and potency.

Doterra, founded in 2008 in Pleasant Grove, Utah, has an Aroma Essentials Kit that provides an easy way to start eliminating toxins in your home. The collection includes 5 mL bottles of 10 popular Doterra oils and blends: Wild Orange, Peppermint, Lavender, Lemon, Frankincense, Copaiba, Oregano and three proprietary blends: Aromatouch, Breathe and On Guard plus a stylish and well-made Laluz diffuser. With these essential oils and powerful diffuser, you’ll be on your way to a home that smells amazing and
inviting — free of toxins.

Every single batch of Doterra essential oil undergoes rigorous third-party and internal testing to ensure that your oil is free of contamination and adulteration of any kind. From the source to you, Doterra essential oils are 100-percent pure, which means you can have perfect peace of mind when you choose to bring them into your home and into your body.

The Aroma Essentials Kit was one of the holiday products featured in Doterra Philippines’ second anniversary event, “Alive,” held last 13 November.

The event celebrated Doterra’s mission of sharing the highest quality essential oils with the world.

“We are grateful for the sharing hearts of our Wellness Advocates who provide
life-changing products and a personal growth platform for people who want a pathway forward to a better future — it is hope in a better future that makes life worth living and helping others discover a way forward, leading to a life well lived,” Michael Carson, general manager, said.

The virtual event expo is open to Wellness Advocates and their guests to explore until the end of the year via
