How I use Thieves Cleaner for EVERYTHING

If you have heard of Young Living, most likely you have heard of Thieves Household Cleaner. Formulated with the power of Young Living’s Thieves essential oil blend, Thieves Household Cleaner is a concentrated, versatile solution that gives you a deep clean when scrubbing, degreasing, spot cleaning, dusting, and more—all without harsh chemicals. With its spicy-sweet aroma and plant-based formula, it’s great to use around everyone in your family, including pets. Create a clean, welcoming space that’s perfect for everyone with the fresh, inviting scent and sparkling clean of Thieves Household Cleaner.

I switched from the typical cleaners you buy off the shelves to thieves just a few years ago. I was pregnant with my first child and wanted to clean the entire house before she arrived. I was cleaning the bathroom and my throat started to hurt from breathing in the cleaner. I immediate got a bandana to put over my face but the feeling in my throat and chest didn't go away for awhile. I started on the bathtub and just kept thinking...'if this is hurting my throat and chest so bad, why would I want to clean the tub with it and then put a baby in that tub?' That just didn't make sense to me and honestly, I wasn't at all comfortable with it. I started researching everything that is in those cleaners and it's not something I ever want to use again.

Your typical $3-6 cleaner contains carcinogens⁣⁣. CARCINOGENS.

So would you want to take a bath shortly after cleaning your tub? NOT ME!

A 14.4 oz. bottle of Thieves Household Cleaner breaks down to $1.13/bottle⁣⁣ (this is a concentrate, you use 1 capful to make 16 oz of all purpose cleaner but you could make it stronger if you’d like)

• Plant-based ⁣⁣

• 0 chemicals ⁣⁣

• Strengthens your immunity ⁣⁣

• Made with essential oils ⁣⁣

• Safe around pets/children⁣⁣

• Safe for the environment

• No warning label on the bottle⁣

Not only is Thieves Household Cleaner safe for your whole family, cleans incredibly well, but it also boosts your immune system. And we could all use that! Especially me since I am immunocompromised.

Did you know that it takes only 26 seconds for whatever we put onto our skin to fully absorb into our blood stream? So after you mop that kitchen floor with the cleaner of your choice and let your kiddo crawl across it or your kids walks across your floors barefoot, every ingredient in that bottle of cleaner is now in their system. That's a little scary to think about if you are at all concerned about the cleaner you are using.
