Thieves Dish Soap and Thieves Dishwashing Detergent 

Thieves Dish soap -It is very concentrated, so I tend to dilute it half with water. I will hop on live sometime today to show you what I do. But can I just say, it works really well.

Have you ever wondered why YL household products including the dish soap, shampoos, household cleaners produce no suds..

Nerd talk
There are a couple of good reasons for no suds: 1) essential oils change the surface tension of bubbles, making them more likely to pop, and 2) most bubbles you find in liquid soaps are a byproduct of SLS or Sodium Laureth Sulphate.

SLS is a known ocular irritant, dermal irritant, can be absorbed across the skin, and may also be associated with hair loss and aquatic toxicity. Therefore YL chose to exclude it from their products.
.
So, take a tip from me: skip the bubbles. They mean nothing for the cleansing power of the pr14 - Thieves with Thieves Lineoduct.

Dishwasher Detergent – Honestly, it is going to require some getting used to. You have to scrub the dishes a little bit before putting it in the dishwasher. My hubs is not happy with it. But I refuse to compromise on residue, so we continue to bicker about it. I just take the extra time to scrub it and after I played with it a bit, it is much better

Fabric Softeners

Do you use fabric softeners? If I gave you a simple recipe, will you promise to throw yours out? Guys, I can’t stress the importance of ditching Dryer Sheets and Fabric Softeners – so full of endocrine disruptors. Please protect your and your kids hormones

Use wool balls with a few drops of your favorite EO and try this recipe for fabric softeners.

My EO choices – Lavender, Lemon, Purification, Thieves, Eucalyptus Radiata, Stress Away

Young Living October 2016 Promotion

One of the reasons I love Young Living as a company is because of the generous gifts they give to members. Take October for instance, there are so many awesome promotions this month, that I am almost overwhelmed in figuring out how to write about it.

First of all, they have included a new tier of promotion for spending 100PV ( basically equals to the $) which is brand new. Secondly, I love that you get the Thieves household cleaner (a must in every household if you want to go toxin free) and Thieves Fruit and Vege Spray and Dryer balls + more

OctPromotionTier

I wanted to describe what each of these products can do.

Lavender Vitality: I love adding Lavender Vitality to my Lemonade or Fruit smoothie. It is a great way to support all body systems. One of my favorite uses is to add to a capsule for seasonal discomfort.

Palo Santo: It is a plant from South America that has been used by the Incas to cleanse and purify negative energies. It is great for spiritual development and calming the nerves. Another wonderful use that I discovered is to add it to my camping spray to have a pest free outdoor experience.

Clove Vitality: Clove is wonderful for supporting the immune system and overall wellness. It is fabulous to support oral health and adding a drop to honey can soothe your throat.

Thieves Fruit and Vegetable Spray: These days, even organic produce has residue in them. Spraying your fruits and vegetables especially when on the go can have you eating them in no time after a quick rinse. It is super effective as it has the combination of Thieves Oils + Lime Oil.

Wool Dryer Balls: Now, why can’t we just use the dryer sheets instead. The popular dyer sheets have endocrine disruptors. Read this article by Huffington Post on common household items that contain estrogen mimicking chemicals that disrupt hormones. Use wool dryer balls – add a drop of Lavender or Purification EO to it and see your clothes comes out super clean :)

Thieves Household Cleaner: You can get the squeaky clean without dangerous chemicals or synthetic ingredients. We have replaced this for all the cleaning supplies we have at home. It is super concentrated so it lasts a long time. I love non toxic cleaning supplies for the same reasons as why I WILL NOT use dyer sheets. With the skin being the largest organ which will absorb everything that it comes in contact with, I am very particular about what I use at home including cleaning supplies.

Having a small child at home, I never have to worry about whether he will get into my cleaning cabinet because even if he does, it is super safe.

For current members of YL, we have another great opportunity to get Free Gifts. If you have never been on Essential Rewards (which is the monthly autoship program allowing you to get points for all the essentials that you might normally buy – you can cash that for most products) you can get Thieves, Lemon and Digize for placing an ER order for just 100PV.

Thieves EO: Can’t live without Thieves in our home. We use this every day for boosting our immune system.

Lemon EO: It is super cleansing and is one of the most versatile oils I have known other than Lavender.

Digize EO: It is a blend that is helpful in regulating your  digestive system and for overall wellbeing.

Back To School – Keeping the Immune System Up

This second post is about keeping the kiddos & everyone in the family healthy. 

In my home, when the kiddo gets sick, all things come to a stand still. So, when I found a few things that have worked this past year when he has been in school for the first time in his life, we have stuck to it like nobody’s business.

PrintThe first is Thieves EO. No one in our home leaves without either applying Thieves to our foot or taking a drop of Thieves Vitality with honey or NingXia Red everyday. Talking about NingXia Red, did you know that you only need an ounce or two of NingXia Red to stay healthy? We do this diligently.

I personally also need my shot of NingXia Nitro around 3:00 pm to get through the rest of my day still staying focussed. I also encourage my hubby to do the same instead of drinking coffee or tea at that time of the day.

The other things we do unrelated to oils is eat a healthy breakfast everyday – connecting as a family is important every morning before we part ways, get adequate rest, exercise. Ok, the latter two sometimes gets compromised, but since the intention is there, we at least strive for it. A healthy mind and body is needed for being ‘Mighty And Strong’.
