People are exposed to toxins everyday across all kinds of activities and from sources that 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 the 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 daily and long term health.

Everyone's bodies have built-in protection and filters to help manage the toxins we encounter, but if the toxic load gets too heavy for the body to handle, things can go downhill 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 do get to choose what comes into your home. One of the simplest first steps to reducing these is by taking 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.

However, these products actually release synthetic chemicals into the air. Saying goodbye to the synthetic fragrances of candles, air fresheners, and room sprays doesn't mean your home can't still smell amazing. Even better, you can 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 that affects safety, effectiveness, and potency. Every single batch of dōTERRA essential oil undergoes rigorous third-party and internal testing every step of the way to ensure that your oil is free of contamination and adulteration of any kind. From the source to the home, the essential oils are absolutely, completely 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.

dōTERRA's Aroma Essentials Kit is an easy way to start eliminating toxins in your home through changing what you put in the air. The collection includes 5 mL bottles of ten popular dōTERRA 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, and of course, free of toxins.

The kit is one of the holiday products featured in dōTERRA Philippines' 2nd Anniversary event entitled, Alive, which celebrated the company's continuous mission of sharing the highest quality essential oils with the world. In the processes of doing this, dōTERRA aims to help Filipinos feel more alive through its products, education and leadership opportunities.

"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," Philippines General Manager, Michael Carson said.

The virtual event expo is open for its Wellness Advocates and their guests to explore until the end of the year via www.doterraPHalive.com.
