I know what you're thinking, how is it possible to really clean a home without chemicals? Trust me, at first I was a skeptic too. It just didn't make sense to me, I thought I needed the chemicals that gave me headaches or made me dizzy to really get rid of the germs. However all of that changed when I purchased Young Living's Thieves Household Cleaner.
When I first purchased Thieves cleaner I mainly used it the for mopping our wood and tile floors, cleaning the toilets and sinks while still purchasing other name-brand "natural" cleaners that to handle other parts of our home. After seeing how great Thieves was at cleaning, I realized my other cleaners just weren't cutting it. I started looking online for other options that I could make with my Thieves Household Cleaner (Pinterest is a great resource for essential oils recipes). Recipes in hand, I ordered my 16oz amber glass bottles (they're better for storage and when using citrus oils that break down plastic) from Amazon.com and was ready to get my cleaning party started! What to know my favorite recipes and their uses? See below!
- The first cleaner I made was my all-purpose cleaner. This is great for wiping down our counters, sinks, cleaning scuffs off the walls, and great for the white tile in our bathrooms. All I need is 1 capful of cleaner, and fill the rest of the bottle with water!
- The glass cleaner is AMAZING! I don't think my mirrors and windows have ever been clearer! For the glass cleaner I mix 1 capful of cleaner, 1/4 white vinegar, 4 drops of Young Living's lemon essential oil, and the rest water.
- The wood cleaner is another one of my favorites. I use a similar recipe with warm water when it's time to mop our floors. I mix 1 cap of cleaner, a small amount (less than 1/4 cup) of organic olive oil, 4 drops of Young Living's orange essential oil, and then the rest water.
- For mopping floors - depending on the size and amount of water I use 2 caps of cleaner, warm water, olive oil, and Young Living's orange essential oil.
Now for $22 this lovely 14.4 oz bottle helps me keep our entire home clean the natural way, for a good chunk of time and I absolutely LOVE it!
