Not so long ago, ingredients were legible, fragrances were real and cleaning products were safe. Once upon a time, products were actually products of nature.  Unfortunately, over the last century, industries abandoned the source for synthetics and purity for profit. 


This takes its toll on our health.  Toxic load build-up in our bodies is rising at an alarming rate.  For the most part, our bodies are adept to flushing and filtering these toxins.  This is important as some toxins are not easily avoided.  Our bodies can only filter and flush so much before the toxic load takes a physical toll.  Though you can’t control most everyday environmental toxins, you can purge the hundreds of toxins lurking in your cabinets and draws.

Pure and effective products do exist and bring the best of nature into your everyday routines.

Stop Letting Toxins Rule Your Life


The Easiest Way to Banish Toxins in Your Home


Every breath, every bite, every minute under the sun introduces us to substances and chemicals (natural or synthetic) that can impact our health. Products in the United States contain more than 80,000 chemicals and most of them are understudied or unregulated.

The good news is that our bodies have built-in protections and filters help us manage the toxins we encounter. But if your toxic load gets too heavy for your body to handle, things can go downhill fast. Especially because your body actually becomes less efficient at managing toxins as your toxic load increases. When functioning properly, your body is an incredibly powerful toxic load–minimizing machine.


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 can control what you bring into your own home. The Aroma Essentials Collection is the easiest first step to taking control of the toxins in your home. Diffusing pure doTERRA essential oils is the best way to for your home to have inviting, uplifting aromas in a safe, natural way, with no hidden toxins.


Is having toxins in my home really that dangerous?


The detrimental effects of toxic load on your health can have serious long-term consequences. Toxins can interfere with your hormones and cause imbalances, they can cause damage to your organs, and even damage cell membranes, DNA, and modify gene expression.


Knowing this, why would we ever allow toxins in our lives? Why would we use products that might harm us? Well, we don’t always mean to. While we can’t always get rid of toxins like pollution or other elements out of our control, there is still plenty you can do to reduce your exposure to toxins within your home, and you can start by purifying the air.


Essential oils seem complicated. Wouldn’t it be easier to spray an air freshener or use a plug-in?


Diffusing essential oils is an easy way to help your home can have an inviting, uplifting aromas in a safe, natural way, with no hidden toxins. It’s as simple as adding water and a few drops of oil to your diffuser, then pressing the power button. That’s it! Really!


Using natural products like essential oils is too expensive.


Pure essential oils are incredibly potent, so it only requires a couple of drops to fill the entire room with the aroma. A few drops of pure essential oil go much further than the synthetic or cheap scented products you might find at the grocery store.


Depending on how often you diffuse, the Aroma Essentials Collection is likely to last anywhere from six months to well over a year. How does a year without toxic scents wafting through your home sound? With this collection, curated for the home, you can feel good about the huge step you’re taking toward lightening the toxic load of you and your family.


I invite you to take a look at our Aroma Essentials Collection and I’d be honored to help you on your journey of natural solutions.
