I love essential oils most because they help keep my family healthy. . . .but I didn’t realize for a long time how important eliminating chemicals in my home was also a vital part of maintaining our healthy bodies and keeping us safe. And essential oils play a huge role with this as well.
We live in a want-it-now, want-it-strong kind of world where we have begun to lean on synthetics in all aspects of life instead of what is natural, what is God-given, and what is healthy. We eat food that’s not food. We rub on lotions and creams made from chemicals and artificial fragrances. We clean our homes with poisons.
So, I’m beginning to purge–purge my house of chemical dependency little by little. Now, I’m not quick at it because I am not a great DIYer, but we are getting there and Young Living plays a HUGE part of this cleaning out of cleaning products.
Let’s spend a bit of time exploring some ways essential oils can help us take one step to a healthy and safe home. I <3 these! They are easy. They are EFFECTIVE. They are healthy. Let’s get to i!
My ABSOLUTE FAVORITE essential oil blend is YL’s Thieves. Incredible in so many ways, and it’s my NUMBER ONE cleaning go-to. Young Living has turned this amazing blend into an actual cleaner to make it even easier for us to utilize the purifying powers of this oil. Thieves Cleaner is a combination of Thieves oil blend, lemon oil, and other natural ingredients. It can be used on all type of surfaces including countertops, glass, carpet, and upholstery.
My friend Rachel has also fallen in move with this all natural cleaner as well. Here’s a great,short video about the goodness of Thieves Cleaner.
Thieves cleaner comes in two sizes and will stretch a long time if diluted properly. You can choose between a 14.4 ounces bottle or a 64 ounces bottle.
Check out these dilution ratios: light degreasing 60:1; medium degreasing 30:1; heavy degreasing 15:1; floors 100:1; walls 30:1; upholstery, fabrics, carpet spotting 40:1; carpet 100:1; glass 320:1; pots and pans; 100:1 hand cleaner 1:1.
It’s SUPER ECONOMICAL for two reasons: a little goes a long way AND this stuff cleans EVERYTHING! Seriously. . . windows, counters, toilets. . . .
If you are a part of Essential Rewards AND you are madly, deeply in love with Thieves, there is a deal on a Thieves kit. From dental care to floor mopping, this kit has your Thieves love covered!
