Yesterday was the first day of spring. Oh how I'm ready! I love being able to open windows and let the outisde in,
take longer walks with my dogs, and just soak in the warmth and sunshine!
With the warmer days also comes thoughts of sping cleaning. Its with that in mind I bring you part two of "What's
In Your Cleaning Products." If you missed part one, read about it below where it says Part 1.
When you're done, come back and learn how to continue transforming your cleaning routine and feel good
Thieves In the kitchen
Let's start in the kitchen. What do you use to wash your dishes? You may be thinking, “Why do I need to worry
about the soap I use to wash my dishes?” Well, you aren't eating the plate for lunch, but you do put food ON
your plate. The food picks up the detergent residue from the plate and then you ingest the food. That means
that you ARE ingesting the soap or detergent. You also inhale the chemicals as the dishwasher releases them
during washing. Ahhh!!! But don’t worry… I have some solutions!
THIEVES AUTOMATIC DISHWASHER POWDER
Thieves Automatic Dishwasher Powder combines the power of natural enzymes, essential oils, citric acid,
and saponins derived from soapberries for a superior cleaning system without the use of harsh chemicals. It’s
also infused with essential oils for extra effectiveness and a great, fresh scent. It removes dried-on food, grease,
oil, and other contaminants so you can enjoy sparkling clean dishes without compromising your health.
Depending on the type of water you have, you may have to play around with this one. Those with hard water may
need to add a little LemiShine (a non-toxic citric acid additive that can be purchased online or at the grocery
store). Some people have success adding a little distilled white vinegar to the load or even Thieves Household
Cleaner. Some add nothing. You will just have to play around and see what works for you. ;)
Thieves Dish Soap. Easily swap out your not-so-safe dish soap with Thieves Dish Soap. This plant-based
solution is infused with Jade Lemon and Bergamot essential oils, and of course, the Thieves blend. It contains no
sulfates, dyes, formaldehyde, phosphates, or synthetic perfumes and uses natural grease-cutting agents,
leaving dishes sparkling clean with no residue. Your hands will also thank you for using such a gentle formula.
You may notice that this soap isn’t quite as sudsy as traditional dish soaps. That’s because they don’t add the
harmful chemical that creates the bubbles. So… I have an easy hack for you that not only creates more bubbles,
but will also TRIPLE your bottle of soap! #WinWin
1. First, remove 2/3 of the soap from the bottle and store for later.
2. Add 1 tsp baking soda to the remaining soap.
3. Fill with distilled or filtered water and shake until all mixed together. Use as directed.
there's more for your kitchen
Before we move on, let’s talk about two more Thieves products you can use in your kitchen -
Thieves Fruit and Veggie Soak and Thieves Fruit and Veggie Spray . They both have the same base
formula and come packed with essential oils that get the job done. The soak comes in a small jug; you simply
add a little to a basin of water, soak, rinse, and enjoy eating your fruits and vegetables as nature intended. The
spray can be used to give your produce a quick spritz before rinsing and enjoying! It’s great for on-the-go uses
or to bring along for camping trips or vacations.
The Fruit and Veggie Soak is infused with the power of Thieves, DiGize, and Purification essential oil blends. The
Fruit and Veggie Spray is infused with the power of Thieves essential oil blend and Lime essential oil. Both are
great for conventional and organically grown produce, safely and effectively cleaning your fruits and veggies
before consumption. Because believe me - once you see what comes off, you will be glad you decided to wash
Thieves in the Laundry Room
Next, let's travel to your laundry room. One would think it’s safe to just use whatever laundry soap or detergent
you want based on the smell and washing ability, right? Sadly - that’s not the case.
Unfortunately the majority of the laundry soaps and detergents available to us are riddled with dangerous
chemicals such as 1,4-dioxane; fragrance; SLS; and more. We breathe in those chemicals as the laundry is being
washed and dried (hello toxic dryer sheets!) AND we can even be absorbing them as we wear our clothes and
snuggle into our blankets and towels. Ahhh! Why risk things like skin, nose, throat, and lung irritation or long-
term effects to our organs and hormones? Some of these dangerous chemicals have even been linked to
cancer yet they’re still readily available to us and marketed as “safe” and “normal.”
Thankfully, Young Living wants nothing to do with those chemicals and has given you a legitimately SAFE
solution with Thieves Laundry Soap. It's made of plant-based ingredients and leaves no chemical or
synthetic residue so you can snuggle up with NO worries! It contains natural enzymes and cleaning agents and
of course, the most powerful essential oils on the planet. Your clothes will be fresh and clean and left with a light
citrus scent, not a heavy perfume.
The best part about this soap is that it’s concentrated so a little goes a long way! You can get 64 loads with just
one 32-ounce bottle, making it economic AND a safe alternative for your family. Want to get DOUBLE that? Try
- Remove 16 oz. soap from the bottle (half).
- Add 3 capfuls of Thieves Household Cleaner (as a booster; optional).
- Add 16 oz. distilled or filtered water.
- Gently shake until completely incorporated.
- Use as directed on the bottle.
One last trick… instead of grabbing dryer sheets (also filled with dangerous chemicals), purchase some wool
dryer balls. It's such an easy switch! Add 3-5 drops of your choice of essential oil to each dryer ball and freshen
up that laundry. Tip: add the oils to the balls at the end of the cycle and let them toss for 5 minutes for best
THieves in the bathroom
Remember that harsh chemical I mentioned in my first post - triclosan? It is a banned ingredient for antiseptic
ashes but it can still be found in other products like toothpaste! Why is it not safe to apply to your skin but it’s
perfectly ok to put in your mouth? That doesn’t make any sense!
Here's what I suggest. Toss that questionable toothpaste and go for one with all-natural ingredients and
essential oils - like the Thieves Aromabright Toothpaste or Thieves Whitening Toothpaste You won’t find
any synthetic ingredients here.
AromaBright gently brushes away plaque and helps support strong and healthy-looking teeth, while its smooth,
natural formula is gentle on teeth and their delicate enamel. Thieves Whitening Toothpaste uses pure and safe
ingredients to whiten teeth, fight plaque, support healthy gums, and remove stains without damaging enamel. It
also foams up quite nicely! They are both fluoride-free and contain no harsh ingredients.
Oily Hack: Use your AromaBright toothpaste as deodorant! Just a tiny pea-size amount rubbed on your underarms does the trick. It’s not sticky and it smells amazing. Isn't that something? Try it!
Next up in the bathroom is Thieves Fresh Essence Mouthwash. Your teeth and gums will benefit from an
invigorating clean that’s free from harsh alcohol and artificial dyes and flavors. You will get the spicy-sweet flavor
of Thieves plus a touch of Spearmint and Peppermint, leaving your mouth happy and healthy. I love this stuff, but
it can be a llittle intense in the flavor department; if you are more sensitive you can easily dilute this mouthwash
with distilled or filtered water. Better yet, divide and dilute the mouthwash into three containers right from the
Then there's the Thieves Dental Floss It’s made with strong fibers that resist fraying and glide easily between
teeth, removing food particles and buildup. There are no synthetic dyes, artificial colors, flavors, or
preservatives… but what you WILL find is Thieves and Peppermint essential oils. Your bathroom - and your body -
are going to love all these simple swaps!
I will add, I have been using all three of these products for years and I always get praised for how well I clean my
teeth when I visit the dentist! They get the job done!
Everyone needs soap. Why not grab one made formulated with only the highest-quality, plant-based
ingredients and infused with pure essential oils? You can cleanse and purify your skin and not have to worry
about any harsh ingredients. There are two Thieves options to pick from: Thieves Cleansing Soap (bar) & Thieves
Foaming Hand Soap.

You can easily swap out those chemical-laden soaps for these much safer option.
