healthy living steps – ditching toxic cleaners

This is the story of how I ditched all of these.

detoxing your home by ditching toxic chemical cleaners

I never would have ever thought that I, of all people, would have embraced a natural cleaning product.

I’ve been a clean freak for most of my life.  And I was attached to my brand name store bought cleaning supplies.  I used to roll my eyes when people bloggers would talk/write about how they detoxed their home by ditching all their toxic, chemical-laden cleaning supplies for natural cleaners.  I’d tried some natural cleaners before, and I was not impressed.  The natural cleaners I tried just didn’t seem to get the job done, and man were they expensive!  I knew that using all the chemical laden cleaners was probably not good for me or my household, but I wasn’t willing to sacrifice real cleanliness especially if that meant paying a higher price.  
I think healthy living is a journey, and I think it’s all about making steps, one at a time, in a healthier direction.  That whole Rome wasn’t built in a day is kind of how I look at healthy living.  Two years ago I started my paleo journey and have become quite passionate about real, nutrient-dense food; and last year while I may not have blogged about it too much I spent much of the year switching out a lot of my family’s personal care products.  I’ve basically been on a mission to detox our lives and our home as much as possible.  There was one area where I wasn’t making much headway.  I was still clinging to my old, trusty cleaners.  They were like my toxic skeletons in the all natural closet.  Ha!  
But then the clouds parted and the angels sent down a bottle of Young Living’s Thieves Household Cleaner.

Obviously, it didn’t really go down like that, but it was pretty darn dramatic.  Thieves basically stole my heart.  It was love at first spray.

Just in case you’ve been living under a rock and have never heard of Thieves essential oil – Thieves was created based on research about four thieves in France who covered themselves with cloves, rosemary and other aromatics while robbing plague victims.  This proprietary blend was university tested for its cleansing abilities.  It is highly effective in supporting the immune system and good health.  Thieves Household Cleaner is a green, ecologically friendly, plant-based cleaner containing Thieves essential oil blend plus additional therapeutic-grade lemon oil for extra cleaning power.  Unlike the other natural cleaning products I had tried, this stuff really works!

It’s a multi-tasking cleaner that has replaced my glass cleaner, kitchen/countertop spray, bathroom cleaner, floor cleaner and stain remover.  I basically use it to clean everything!  And the even better part is it’s actually cheaper – say whaaaat?!  Yeah, this bottle is a concentrate which makes 28 spray bottles of cleaner!  All you do is mix it with water, it’s so easy!  And in case you’re thinking I’m one of those bloggers that is just trying to “sell” you on something, let me just tell you that I love this stuff so much I actually wrapped it up along with the Thieves hand soap and gave it to my sister-in-law, whom I love very much, for her birthday a few months ago.  SO you know I’m not just saying it’s awesome if I’m over here gifting this stuff to my loved ones!  Which by the way, she is now hooked on it too.  

I’m so thankful I finally found something natural that really works!!  If you’re interested in giving Thieves a try, I’ve got good news for you at the end of this post, but first take a look at how Young Living has helped these other bloggers live healthier and create healthier homes.
