ahhhhh dontcha just LOVE when you can clean your house without wearing a mask? Best day ever!
Hi!! Thanks for being here - I know that cleaning is not an exciting topic 😂 buttttt it is necessary.... you see, Greg and I share the cleaning - which basically means that Greg does most of it because I tend to get easily distracted with fun stuff! 😆
Here's the deal - we both have allergies and asthma so we both need to be careful about what we use around the house. The majority of cleaners on the store shelves have ingredients that cause and trigger health issues. 😔
Don't let them fool you with the "natural" label with that green leaf - flip that bottle over and read the tiny little words in the ingredients list. Does it say the word fragrance? If it does then ditch it - or plan to spend some more 💲 at the doctor and the pharmacy.
Important- read the warning section - do you have to call poison control if accidentally ingested? Not good. We should be able to literally brush our teeth with our cleaner. 🌿 Yes - I am serious.
Most people assume cleaning products on the grocery store shelf have been tested and are safe for use, but unfortunately that is simply not true...
Because of the Toxic Substance Control Act, companies did not have to clear even a basic safety review before using a chemical in a consumer product. The law has been slightly updated for newly created chemicals, but the 80,000+ chemicals created in the last century are still being sold in our stores 😔
Are you thinking....
“I’ve been using them for years and I’m fine.”
But are we fine? How often have you been sick in the last year? Do you have a chronic illness? Are you on daily medication?
•Some chemicals accumulate in our bodies over time
•Impacts may show up long after exposure
•Some chemicals can become harmful or more toxic in combination with other chemicals
•Chemicals can have more impact during certain periods of development (womb, infancy, puberty)
•Even tiny doses can be very potent
Conventional cleaning products contain many endocrine-disrupting chemicals that can wreak havoc on your respiratory system, cellular health, thyroid, adrenal glands, and even mental clarity.

THIEVES HOUSEHOLD CLEANER
If you want to start using plant-based products, but are not sure where to start, start with the Thieves Household Cleaner! It is versatile, effective, affordable, and you can clean your ENTIRE house with it!
What is Thieves? Why is it so powerful, and why was it chosen to be in all the Young Living cleaning products?
Young Living’s Thieves essential oil is a proprietary blend that was inspired by the legend of four 15th-century French thieves who wore a combination of these herbs and spices to stay healthy while robbing graves! Thieves blend is a combination of Cinnamon Bark, Lemon, Rosemary, Eucalyptus, and Clove essential oils.
We use this everywhere! Kitchen, Bathroom, floors, EVERYWHERE!! I feel so good knowing it’s safe to use around everyone in our family, including Tinkerbelle - she licks the floor and we don't care anymore! Because it is formulated without the harsh or dangerous chemicals found in many traditional clean products - and it is made with a vegan-friendly, plant-based formula. 🌿

Start em young! 😂 My kids always had a list of chores to do and even though they grumbled it taught them so much - they are both super independent adults who know how to manage their time and get stuff done. The only thing that I regret is not knowing any better when I handed them the cleaning supplies 😞
I know that we talked about using glass spray bottles - here is an alternative - Thieves Wipes. Our littles can feel like a huge helper and we won't have to worry about them handling any harmful chemicals .... or breaking glass 😉
You can buy the Young Living wipes - or just make your own with paper towels!
PILES OF LAUNDRY
Who here knows about Greg's laundry addiction? He does laundry EVERY SINGLE DAY 😂😍 #thankyoubabyjesus
A big part of seasonal cleaning is washing all those winter clothes and blankets before they go into storage, and washing the new clothes that were bought for spring!
Thieves laundry soap can be used in all washers, including high efficiency and its highly concentrated formula will handle approximately 64 loads with just 32 fl oz.
Thieves Laundry Soap is formulated without:
• Synthetic perfumes
• Optical brighteners- DID YOU KNOW that many detergents use optical brighteners to make clothes appear brighter, which has nothing to do with actually cleaning the clothes? YEP 😖 The clothes only appear whiter and brighter because these additives reflect blue light, giving the illusion that your clothes are less yellow. These optical brighteners remain in your clothes and are rub against your skin. Not Good.
🌿 If we feel like something needs an extra "boost" we will add a spoonful of epsom salt, a spoonful of baking soda and a few drops of Lemon right to the washer.
Also, did you know that fabric softener and dryer sheets is the #1 cause of indoor pollution? That “laundry smell” is actually volatile, carbon-based chemicals that evaporate at room temperature and they are some of the most toxic things we can have in our home.
🌿 Here's a Healthy alternative to fabric softener and dryer sheets:
*** 100% wool dryer balls with a few drops of your favorite essential oil - Our favorites are Purification, Lavender or Lemon - You can choose your favorite scent and the dryer balls are reusable! Dryer balls fluff up your laundry, prevent clothes from clumping, increase air circulation, and cut down the amount of time it takes your clothes to dry; they can cut your drying time by 25%!
DISHES ALL DAY
Store bought dish soaps leave a chemical residue on our dishes and pans that can be harmful to our health. I never thought about it this way before - but do you really want to eat that cleaner?
If you haven’t used Thieves Dish Soap, do yourself and your family a favor and try it! This soap will effectively clean your dishes without harsh chemicals, dyes, or synthetics. Jade Lemon, Bergamot, and Thieves essential oil blend are combined with safe, natural sources ------- these ingredients do not bubble ----- Did you know that the stuff that makes your soap bubble is poison?
Here is what we do:
-- We buy the Thieves Dish Soap and pour 2/3 of it into a container for later.
-- Then we add a teaspoon of baking soda and fill with distilled water.
This way we get 3 bottles out of 1! Cool, right?!
(Young Living does not charge us for water 😉)

Soooo we do have to leave our house once in a while--- i mean we can have most things delivered but I don't wanna be a total hermit lol
My favorite little travel buddies for avoiding dirt and germs on-the-go are Thieves Hand Sanitizer and Thieves Spray
● Thieves Spray is so good for spot cleaning those - omgosh did I just miss my mouth and totally drop food in my lap moments 😂 - please tell me i am not alone
● Thieves Hand Sanitizer does not dry my hands out and it doesn't smell like chemicals - because it isn't - it smells soooo good!
Here are a few things to consider about our Thieves Hand vs other brands- When looking for a hand sanitizer or cleaning spray that is safe for your skin, make sure the active ingredients are plant based.
• Thieves Hand Sanitizer contains a plant-derived thickener that comes from cotton. Similar products on the market use an ingredient called Carbopol polymer instead, which is derived from petroleum. Nooooo, thank you!
• Thieves Hand Sanitizer contains denatured alcohol that is denatured using essential oils such as Peppermint. Other commercial products on the market use chemical denaturants.
Have you ever spent the entire day getting your home nice and clean and then you cook salmon or broccoli for dinner and BAM - Funky Air 😕
Now....if you wanna keep your lungs healthy - back away from the scented candle and the glade spray....
That's why we have a diffuser in practically every room in the house! Here are my favorite oils and combos to freshen things up:
🌿Purification by itself is amazing!
🌿Thieves and Lime - a few drops of each
🌿Palo Santo and Lemon - a few drops of each
begin with 5-6 drops total in your diffuser - you can always add more if needed 😉
ok! Your home is now clean and healthy and there were no masks required!!
🚿Time for a nice hot shower!
-- Easy Breeze Awakening Shower Steamers are rejuvenating and invigorating
-- Citrus Fresh Energizing Shower Steamers are clean and refreshing
🛀Here's an idea that I love --- Treat yourself to a relaxing bath - you deserve it! Plus, relaxing will allow your body to recover from all the bending and odd positions that Spring Cleaning puts you in. 😉
Add some Peace and Calming oil in the diffuser, fill that tub and treat yourself to a bath bomb 💗
-- Lavender Calming Bath Bombs
-- Stress Away Relaxing Bath Bombs
Both are amazing 💗💗💗💗
