there was a woman who did daycare and followed all the licensing rules including disinfecting toys in bleach water. One day, almost 3 years ago now, this woman learned just how horrible all the chemicals and toxins in her household cleaners were for her, the children in her care, and her pets. From that day forward, she chose to only clean with
Earlier today, a friend of mine mentioned in one of her posts how often she’s been getting sick since bringing her baby boy home and with school also starting in a month, I thought it might be time to talk about Thieves oil and all the wonderful products Young Living makes with Thieves. If you walked into my house, you would find Thieves products all over the place. Thieves is all about supporting and maintaining a healthy immune system and it is the bees knees!!!
J and I put a drop of Thieves in our Ningxia Red juice (if you remember from my lost post, this juice is high in anti-oxidants and super healthy for you) every day. Even in the midst of cold and flu season with J teaching and me doing daycare, we rarely get sick and when we do, we just up our Ningxia and Thieves intake and get over illnesses much quicker than most because our immune system is getting supported.
Thieves cleaner is FANTASTIC!!! You can use this cleaner for everything and we do! It has replaced bleach to sanitize toys and there are no harmful toxins or chemicals in it so I don’t have to worry about the kids or pets than putting their mouth on toys, etc. One capful makes up a water bottle of spray cleaner and we use it on our counters, in our bathrooms, to clean windows, everything! I’m also using it as laundry detergent right now because I haven’t gotten around to making a new batch of my own, but when I do make my own, I add a 1/2 cup of Thieves cleaner to it and a bottle of lemon oil for whitening. You can also use it in your dishwasher.
Other Thieves products available:
Hand sanitizer – used constantly in this house and has no alcohol in it so it doesn’t dry your hands out.
Toothpaste – 3 different kinds, just know that they won’t foam up when you brush because it’s the chemicals that cause the foaming and there’s no chemicals in it, also no fluoride which is actually HORRIBLE for you!
Mouthwash – again no alcohol and no fluoride
Foaming hand soap – I will say that I don’t love how it feels (I think I’m a little weird on this one), but I love the bottle and that the pump doesn’t get stuck so after I use up the Thieves hand soap, I make my own by filling it up about 1/3 of the way with Dr. Bronner’s peppermint soap, a little almond, vitamin E or jojoba oil (whatever I have on hand), 10 drops or so of Thieves oil and the rest water. It doesn’t dry my hands out and I wash them a lot!!!
Thieves Spray – great for sanitizing cart handles and such at the stores, can also be used as a throat spray
Throat lozenges – I don’t love the taste, they seem really strong to me but others like them just fine
wipes – not worth the cost in my opinion, you can make your own.
Dish Soap- haven’t gotten around to trying it yet but I think I’m going to add it to my ER order this month because I’m just about out.
Laundry soap- again I just make my own because it’s cheaper and I add Thieves cleaner to it.
Fruit and Veggie Spray- also adding this to my ER order this month.
Dishwashing powder – it works great for a lot of people but didn’t work great in mine but then again, we’ve found very few that don’t leave a film in our dishwasher. I think it’s more the dishwasher than it is the product because other’s have to problems. A lot of people like to add lemon oil to that also.
Want to try out Thieves oil or other Thieves cleaner, you can purchase them here.
I am going to leave you with some interesting history on how the oil came to be named Thieves.
Sending you all wellness, purpose and abundance
