The BEST most ECONOMICAL cleaner EVER!

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

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!

Thieves cleaner

“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.

CARPETS
thieves carpet cleaner
In the past we have spent a lot of money on having our carpets professionally cleaned.  It is a hassle, they use chemicals and we can’t walk on our carpets for a day.  Ain’t nobody got time for that!  My hubby found a great deal on a Hoover carpet cleaner and decided it was worth it to try so that we could clean our carpets ourselves.  We put thieves cleaner in the top, where it says to put solution and we were amazed at how well our carpets came clean and how good the house smells after.  NO CHEMICALS!
Another great thing about this cleaner is that it affordable!!!  It is so concentrated, you only use one capful per spray bottle.  So, it lasts for-ev-er!!!
Did I mention it was safe for to use with children and pets?!?!  My daughter threw up all over my car and herself and as soon as I pulled in the driveway, I ran inside and grabbed my thieves spray bottle.  I sprayed it all over her, her chair, the car, the carpet…every nook and cranny!  It got rid of the smell and any sign that anyone has ever thrown up in it.  This is huge, because I probably would have had to get a new car if not (wink)!
Since it is safe for Children and Pets…I love to mop my kitchen floor with it.  I don’t have to worry about the dog licking it or the kids walking around barefoot on it.

How to be a Teachers Pet

Check Yo Self…

check yo self

Ha!  I kid, I kid.  This post is about attitudes.  We all have them!  Sometimes our children’s attitudes are a reflection of our own.  Ouch!

I want to tackle those morning attitudes before they even start so they can be ready for a great school year.  We will use Young Living Oils to help in any way they can.

Back to School Bash

Being organized and prepared is a key player in my happiness so I’m planning it out. Read this to get some ideas of what you need to have on your essential oil supply list.

My Plan of Action:

Night before –

*Take our vitamins (Super C, OmegaGize – Fish oil, MultiGreens, InnerDefense, Longevity, Life 5)

*Fill the kitchen diffuser the night before with a happy blend of Orange, Ylang Ylang & Lavender and have it ready to turn on as soon as I wake up to let the dog out.  This is usually before the kids are awake.

Ylang Ylang, Orange, Lavender

*Fill the USB orb diffuser with water for the car ride to school.  I’ll let them take turns picking which oil to use on the way to school.

*Have lunches and water bottles filled.

Morning –

*Apply peppermint to wake up.  Drink my MindWise, Ningxia Red with Lemon oil and have my quiet time! (check out Jesus Calling if you want to start a quiet time and don’t know where to start)

*Fill the upstairs diffuser with Citrus Fresh, Peppermint or my favorite diffusing blend of Lime, Lemon Myrtle and Peppermint.

*Wake up the kids.

*Everyone get ready.

*Eat breakfast or drink smoothie!

*Apply Thieves to the bottom of all of our feet.  Put shoes on and go.

Back to School EO’s

Have you started your Back to School shopping?  I love new School Supplies.

Don’t forget to add Essential Oils to the supply list for a healthy, happy school year!

Quick Testimony: This past school year my kids did not miss school for being sick.  Instead we took 2 days off to go to Disney World.  This is huge!!!  The year before my son missed so much school we got one of those nasty letters telling us he couldn’t miss anymore.  He was sooooo sick, multiple times.  This is why I am passionate about sharing Young Living Essential Oils with others.  They have been such a huge change in our family wellness.

Morning Routine

IMG_5001[1]

My morning routine used to be coffee, but I have traded that in for NingXia Red, MindWise and a Super C.  When I’m dragging I add a NingXia Nitro.  I have noticed that this last longer and gives me clarity that I need for the day.  When my allergies flair up I add a second NingXia Red later in the day.  I also love to add oils to this!  This is where it gets fun.  I feel like a bar tender of essential oils!

MindWise is a new product that was introduced at Young Living Convention and I am very excited about the lives that will be helped with this.  It even tastes good!

IMG_4958[1]

 

Description (from website): MindWise™ combines exotic sacha inchi nut oil with a proprietary MindWise oil blend for a unique, normal brain function-supporting supplement.* Harvested from the Peruvian Amazon, sacha inchi nuts are cold pressed to create a vegetarian oil with a high proportion of unsaturated fatty acids and an unmatched percentage of desirable omega-3 fatty acids (α-Linolenic acid). Medium chain triglycerides (MCT) and pure essential oils are added to complete the MindWise oil blend.
The proprietary Memory blend features ALCAR, GPC, and bio-identical CoQ10, ingredients that have been studied for their beneficial health properties. Generous amounts of vitamin D3 and a unique delivery method create a premium supplement that supports normal memory function and overall cognitive health.*.

 

EINKORN Crepes

Have you purchased the Einkorn Pancake and Waffle Mix yet?  I got it at Young Living Convention and have been excited to experiment with it.  On the side of the box is a crepe recipe.  I have never made crepes, but I love them, so I decided to give it a try.  If it is your first time as well, my tip to you is double your recipe.  It takes a couple tries to get it right. (Oh, and the syrup comes out fast!)

DESCRIPTION (back of box):  Gary’s True Grit Einkorn Pancake and waffle mix combines ancient einkorn wheat and other healthful grains with a special blend of ground legumes, added for a concentrated source of protein and fiber, making this a nutritious and tasty meal that will be enjoyed by the entire family.

Einkorn is the original “staff-of-life” grain, known as the oldest variety of wheat, which dates back to the beginning of time.  Einkorn’s natural genetic code and low gluten levels make it a superior choice because of its compatibility with the human body when compared to the modern , hybrid wheat of today.

Einkorn wheat is easier to digest, so nutrients are better absorbed, thus promoting the proper functions of the digestive system.

Today, Young Living is helping to bring einkorn wheat back to its rightful prominence in the world.

Gary’s True Grit Mix has 0.53% gluten content

 

YLConvention 2014

This was my very first Young Living Convention.  I am so thankful for the opportunity to go and see first hand how wonderful our company is and how serious they are about Young Living standards.  Convention was in Salt Lake City, Utah this year.  We stayed at The Hilton which is right across the street from the convention at the Salt Palace.

Monday, Day 1

When we first arrived we went to a leadership session with several great speakers.

IMG_4602

First, Darren Hardy is the publisher and founding director of SUCCESS magazine. Hardy is a businessman, author, private equity investor, keynote speaker, corporate advisor, and a mentor to CEOs and entrepreneurs.  He  spoke on 21st Century Leadership.

A few of my favorite take aways:

Lead by example – behavior never lies

Leaders set the pace – people don’t go as fast as they can, they go as fast as they are being led

How do you get people to do what you want?  Ask yourself 2 questions: What do you want?  (list 12 top attributes you want)  Do I demonstrate these attributes?

Everybody recruits: military, colleges, sports, charities, religious, corporations

The best businesses have the best people.  Great people aren’t trained, they are found

Sell You! You are the living spokesperson for Young Living.  They are going to buy it if you believe it and exemplify it.   You can’t convince someone of something you don’t believe yourself.

Change SELL to HELP!  Help people better themselves, focus on how you can help them instead of what they can do for you.

Monkey See Monkey Do – You are always training someone

Then Connie Podesto, Award-Winning Author, Comedian, and Expert in the Psychology of Human Relations.  She was funny and identified our personalities and taught me I was a triangle.

Last but not least was our founder, Gary Young.  He is so passionate about what he does, it is contagious!  He encouraged us all to Dream Big, Live our Dream and don’t let people squash our dreams!

Some more take aways:

We are created to do great things!

If you are not self-evaluating yourself, somebody else will.

I can’t = I won’t

After leadership session, they had a Welcome Party with tons of food, desserts and a Ningxa bar.  We met up with some of our team here.

Tuesday night we attended a fancy Gala.  It was fun to get all dressed up.  They had bottles of Ningxa Red on our tables.

and it get even better…

We have facebook groups that offer so much support, that we will add you too!  We are all just one giant family.  Everyone is always so willing to help each other out.

Young Living does not require you to sell, distribute or making monthly purchases.  The kit includes the yearly wholesale membership fee.  If you buy the kit and never want to purchase another item, you can do that.  I don’t recommend it, but that is how great this company is.

Young Living has been in business for 20 years (more on this later)!  They own their own farms and have an open door policy.  If you want to stop by and help plant they will put you to work.

I get to visit the farms next week, eek!  I can’t wait!!!  I hope to take pictures and share them when I get home.
