Is your home really non-toxic AND clean?

Is your home really non-toxic AND clean?
We all love the idea of non-toxic cleaners AND desire that clean sparkling home. But- do they work? 

Conventional detergents are comprised of a concoction of fragrances, endocrine disruptors, neurotoxins and potent cancer-causing chemincals. These ingredients are being absorbed through your skin from your towels, sheets, clothes, etc. Yikes! 

Switching out your laundry detergent is the best place to start ditching and switching for a cleaner option. 

I use a product that is beloved by many, for good reason! But, what is it in that makes is a cleaning product? Especially a NON-Toxic one? 
This product has Ingredients called surfactants work to remove grease, grime and water-soluble "ickies" that are on the surfaces in your home. It is free from SLS, formaldehyde, dyes, petrochemicals, phosphates, synthetic perfumes and optical brighteners! Whew! Did you even know those were a thing? 

So, what IS this amazing product that cleans everything in your house AND is super affordable? 

Thieves Household Cleaner.... It is one of my favorites! :) It is packed with environmentally-friendly plant based ingredients. It is a concentrated formula that makes it cost effective and versatile. 

What It's For: 
Any surface! As an all purpose cleaner, you can use it to clean floors, sinks, counters, toilets, glass, wood, leather, fabrics, and more! You can also feel good knowing that it is safe for everyone in your household, including pets! 

Ingredients: 
This concentrated cleaner contains the infamous THIEVES essential oil blend; clove, lemon, cinnamon, eucalyptus and rosemary. This blend has powerful cleaning properties as well as smells AMAZING! It cleans and deodorizes and can be used anywhere with ease! 

How to Use it: 
Because this product is a concentrate, I can stretch a 32 ounce bottle into 96 ounces! Feels a touch magical! ;) 

Here is a recipe that I use: 
-1 32 oz Thieves Laundry Soap 
-3 32 oz bottles 
-8 cups of water 
-2 cups washing soda 
-6 Tbsp of salt 
-3 Tbsp of vinegar
-3 caps of Thieves Household Cleaner

Bring the 8 cups of water to a simmer and add in the washing soda and salt. Stir until fully dissolved. Set aside to cool. 

Split the Thieves Laundry soap evenly between the 3 bottles. To each bottle, add 1 cap of Thieves Cleaner and 1 Tbsp of vinegar. Top off each bottle with the cooled soda/salt water and mix. The soap will thicken as it sets. 

The Laundry Soap is another amazing option for Non-Toxic Living: It is very similar in ingredients and quality and versatility. You can grab your own HERE.

As with everything, immune support and building health are KEY to keeping ourselves well and fighting things off better when we do find a little pesky germ or virus finding their way into our bodies. 

I use MOSTLY all Young Living products- items to strengthen and build my immune system, like the Probiotics and ImmuPro! I have a list of what I use and WHY that I will update to this post as well as I am including some other products that my family also uses to help boost immune function and overall health, no matter what is going on in life or the season...
