Toxins In Your Cleaners

You can imagine that you have toxins in your cleaners. Before I started using Young Living and making my own natural cleaners I had a closet full of toxic bottles that I had to shelve very high to keep out of arm’s length from my little guys.

Top 4 Risky Toxins In Your Bottles


That’s right these chemicals 2-Butoxyethanol, Ammonia, Bleach and Chlorine are found in everyday scrubs and sprays. These toxins are poorly tolerated by the respiratory system and are very irritating (can even burn) the skin.

What Can I Use Instead?


Our favorite essential oil line, Thieves, has a solution. The Thieves Household Cleaner is not only a strong powerhouse cleaner, it serves as an all-in-one. Can you imagine how much this cuts down on the cost of having multiple cleaners for all the different surfaces we need to keep clean? This amazing formulation deep cleans with the power and backing of Thieves essential oil. Check out just how affordable Thieves Household cleaner really is here.


Dilute & Save

There are different dilution ratios that you can mix the Thieves Household Cleaner in to meet your needs whether you can scrubbing floor, ovens, tubs or toilets…one cleaner fits all!

  • All-purpose cleaning – 30 parts water to 1 part of Thieves Household Cleaner
  • Heaving degreasing –  15 parts water to 2 part Thieves Household Cleaner
  • Light degreasing –  60 parts water to 1 part Thieves Household Cleaner
  • Glass and windows – 50-100 parts water to 1 part Thieves Household Cleaner

I love to use a 32 oz. spray bottle with 1-2 caps full of the Thieves Household Cleaner and then fill the rest with water. Easy cleaning and your house will smell amazing!


DIY Cleaning Recipes


As you can tell, I love DIY products. Cleaners are definitely one I love to make at home. You can save a ton of money and most importantly you can pronounce each and every ingredient you put into the recipe. Cleaning can be safe and non-toxic.
