It is time to start thinking about what to get your special someone for Valentines Day! Here ya go…you’re welcome!!
This post will forever change you! Well, maybe the way you clean your house…
My friend Catherine and I want to share our love for Thieves Cleaner!
Thieves cleaner is a green, ecologically friendly, plant-based cleaner containing Thieves and lemon Young Living quality essential oils. Safe for use around children and pets. It is perfect for cleaning practically everything in your house.
We have both thrown out all other cleaners and use Thieves for everything. EVERYTHING! From fruit to our toilets… You simply buy empty spray bottles from the dollar store or home improvement store and follow the chart on the bottle for diluting. Add water! I have a spray bottle in my kitchen and each bathroom.
We will also share other natural ways to replace things like room spray, laundry detergent, dishwasher detergent, hand sanitizer, throat spray, goo gone, etc.
Do you know the story behind Thieves?
The oils or herbs were used by thieves who robbed the dead and dying during the plague of the 15th century and who never contracted the disease. The Young Living Thieves cleaner is patterned after this formula that offered protection during a time when 50 percent of Europe perished from the plague.
Thieves is a Young Living essential oil blend. What are the five oils used in Thieves? (Clove, Cinnamon Bark, Rosemary, Lemon, Eucalyptus (E. radiate))
Thieves essential oil blend was found to have a 99.6% kill rate against airborne germs!
Here are a couple testimonies. So you can see we are not alone!
“The Thieves Household cleaner has been absolutely wonderful. I’ve had it since March and it’s not even 1/2 gone. I literally use it for EVERYTHING, from cleaning the kitchen floors to washing produce! I love that it’s all natural, chemical free and won’t be harmful to my family. Not to mention it smells amazing!” -Julia T.
Summer is almost here and that means, bug bites, blisters and boo-boos are too, so lets prepare ourselves. Mix this up in a small plastic spray bottle and keep it in your purse, swim bag, diaper bag….
5 drops lavender
3 drops tea tree (Melaleuca alternifolia)
2 drops cypress
Mix above oils thoroughly in 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Add this to 8 ounces of distilled water and shake vigorously. Put in a small spray bottle. Spray minor cuts and wounds before applying bandage. Repeat 2-3 times daily for 3 days. Complete the healing process by applying a drop or two of tea tree (Melaleuca alternifolia) oil to the wound daily for the next few days.

Most bug sprays smell so bad and are sticky so, I never want to use them. This smells wonderful and is good for you. It absorbs into your skin and is not sticky. It is also safe and effective for your dog.
