I did a video on two of my favorite oils -Thieves and Frankincense
Are you looking for non toxic yet effective household products, look no further. The Thieves line of products that Young Living makes is super effective, cost effective and most of all ‘GETS THE JOB DONE’.
The Thieves household cleaner has replaced all my cleaning supplies. I did a bunch of research on all the ingredients listed to make sure it was safe for our family. Having dealt with some severe health challenges for over 10 years and with my husband being a cancer survivor, I knew the impact chemicals had on our wellbeing. But I could not find any clean cleaners that were actually effective and I found myself spending a lot of money on so called ‘green cleaners’.
That was till I found Thieves Household Cleaner. I knew it was effective but it was actually mind blowing when my friend and fellow oiler Hailey Miranda Aliff did a science experiment with her 11 year old niece on this.
By Hailey Miranda Aliff…
My 11 yr old niece and I are doing a school science fair project. We swabbed bathroom surfaces (YUCK!) and then swabbed the agar in the Petri dishes. We took 4 pieces of blotted paper – one was a control with nothing on it and the 3 others had different cleaning products: Lysol, Bleach, and Thieves Essential Oil.
If you don’t already own the entire Thieves Cleaning Line right this second, I suggest you go pitch the toxic cancer-causing cleaning products under your sink and replace it with God-made PURE PLANTS THAT WORK!!!!! Holla!!
Y’all…. I am wayyyyy more excited than she is 😂 😂 😂 super nerd right here!”
Here are the pictures from her experiment. Now you can see for yourself how effective these plant based products are.
I hope this has convinced you to ditch the chemicals in your home. Trust me, toxic chemicals create endocrine problems and with the skin being the largest organ, everything that you come in contact with will be absorbed by your body. Read your labels carefully on what you use inside your home especially if you have little children..
I am looking for 3 people who are willing to try the Thieves Household Cleaner. Please message me and I will send you a sample of the cleaner for you to try with NO COST to you.
This past week, our family got hit hard. First my son was under the weather and then my husband and finally me. Usually, my husband and I generally escape the petri dish that our toddler is, but not this time. Plus, being pregnant also makes it hard to be sick ( Yes, a new Ali will be joining us at the end of Jan – another blog post of how I am supporting my system using YL oils and supplements.
OK, back to immune system. Here is what we did to support our family…..For my husband and I, we started taking Inner Defense right away. Hubby took one every few hours. I only took two for the entire day as it contains Oregano, so I did not want to over do it.
I made an Immune Boosting bomb for myself and I only put Thieves, Frankincense and Copaiba in it ( left out the Oregano). I added Copaiba for supporting over all wellbeing and helping my system recover faster.
We also applied R.C on our chest, Thieves on the foot, Frankincense on the spine. We also diffused Purification, Lemon, Thieves EO in the shared common area, not all at once, but one at a time. At night, I diffused Thieves, Purification, Oregano, Citrus Fresh, Lemon EO – similarly, not all at once, but one at a time depending on what catches my attention.
Another thing, my husband discovered 😀 is this process of ‘Steaming With EO’. Being Indian, we were used to the process of steaming when sick ( heating water up, adding herbs to it and inhaling the vapors from it by covering your head with a towel to keep the vapors in).
He suggested trying it with EO’s. He added Peppermint EO or R.C or Oregano to the steaming water. It very much supported his respiratory system. I tried it as well. Peppermint EO was quite intense, but it really supported the respiratory system and cleared my nasal passage. Do write if you try this method and let me know what your experience is.
We also upped the dose of NingXia Red, Vit D, Omega Oils, Elderberry Syrup and Probiotics to help our bodies recover faster.
For the kiddo, pretty much the same protocol. Left out ingesting oils other than adding Lemon and Orange EO to his water. Needless to say, he is feeling much better in no time. I am amazed at the body’s ability to heal when the right environment is provided.
This is what he does with empty vegetarian capsules – fills them up with tiny beads
Add salt to the spray bottle. Add all the Young Living oils to the bottle. Mix well and then add the water. Shake well and it is ready to go. Spray from head to toe before heading out into crowded areas like school, mall, public transportation etc. You are armed, locked, loaded ready to go.
Immune Booster Roll On
Mix all the Young Living oils together and fill the rest of the bottle with Almond Oil. Use everyday before school. Just make sure to apply the roller bottle to an area that will be covered if you child is going to be out in the sun for long periods of time as this mix contains Lemon EO.
10 Drops Lavender EO
10 Drops Purification EO
1/2 tsp salt
2 /3 ml Spray Bottle
Add salt to the bottle before adding the Young Living oils. Mix well before adding water. This would be a good one to use after your children come back home or a great one to use if you are a teacher to spray in your classroom.
I cannot take credit for any of these recipes. These are some of the popular ones with Young Living users.
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.
The 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’.
