Why I started Cleaning without Chemicals

When my kids turn 10 years old I start teaching them how to clean their bathroom. They’ve always had chores and had to clean but I felt at 10 they could really understand and do a good job where I didn’t have to go behind them and do it again. One day I heard my daughter coughing non-stop so I went to check and make sure she was ok. I walked into her bathroom and found her in her shower with goggles on, a bandana around her face, and gloves on her hands. I wanted to cry. Not because I was proud of her for doing such an amazing job but because I was poisoning my own child with these toxic chemicals. I immediately stopped her from cleaning and at that moment I started taking this cleaning thing seriously to protect my family from these harsh chemicals. 

Why You Should be Using Thieves

With being a mom of 7 kids I really don’t have time to read the labels at the grocery store. I have a hard enough time keeping an eye on all of them and making sure they aren’t sneaking junk into the shopping cart. When I first joined Young Living I joined to help support mine and my families health with essential oils. What I didn’t realize is that they also had so many other great products that could replace items that I had in my home that are filled with harsh chemicals. I have been using Thieves Household Cleaner for a year now and I absolutely love it. When you use a versatile concentrate like Thieves Household Cleaner not only are you cutting down on costs but you are also cutting down on chemicals and waste.

I loved my bleach! That strong sterile smell made me think I really did something when I cleaned. I have since learned otherwise. If you haven’t looked up your cleaning supplies on the EWG site or the Think Dirty app then please click here and here. You will be absolutely horrified at what you find in your cleaning products and what they can do to the human body. What’s even more alarming is you’ll find these chemicals in products like Meyers cleaning products which I thought were to be all natural. For instance Methylisothiazolinone is one of the ingredients you will find which can cause nerve damage and is also found in antibacterial products. 


What is Thieves

Thieves is an all-purpose cleaner formulated with 100% plant and mineral based ingredients that also include Clove, Cinnamon Bark, Rosemary, Lemon, and Eucalyptus essential oils.  You won’t find those cheap fragrances and fillers seen in other cleaning products that irritate your lungs.

How to use Thieves and Cost Effective

Thieves Household Cleaner is a very concentrated bottle, so what does that mean? There are 60 capfuls in each bottle of THC, which means you can make 60 (16 oz) spray bottles of cleaner! Pretty great right! Now let’s break that down in cost. A bottle of THC costs $22.50 (wholesale price) divide that by 60 and it equals $.36/per bottle. Now let’s take a bottle of Meyers all purpose spray cleaner (just since I referenced it earlier). It’s gonna cost you $3.99 for one bottle, multiply that by 60 and you’re gonna spend $239.40 vs. the $22.50 for one bottle of THC. If you ask me I’d rather spend that extra $216.90 on other things like clothes!
