When I first started using Young Living products I just wanted the lavender to help me sleep. I diffused oils day and night. I loved them, but never once went on the website to check out what else they offered. Huge mistake! After I was running low on my oils I hopped on the website and was shocked to find there are TONS of other products. Most of the products are made from essential oils, they are plant based and non-toxic. Once I realized all there was to offer I decided to start switching over to using their non-toxic products instead of junk I was buying at the grocery store.
Think dirty app!
Once you start researching natural products and how to have a natural lifestyle it can feel overwhelming. I recommend downloading the Think Dirty app. This is a quick and easy way to understand the toxic products lurking around in your house. You just scan a product’s barcode and the app will bring up the product’s information. It rates each product by the ingredients it contains and let me tell you it can be disturbing. I scanned the liquid foundation I’ve used for nearly a decade and it rated an 8 on the app. An 8 is not a good thing…you don’t want to be a perfect 10 on Think Dirty.
Does it really get stains out though!? Yes!
So, let’s get back to what this post is about! Can you wash your clothes with essential oils? Yes, you sure can…in a sense. Young Living has their own laundry detergent made with Thieves oil. Haven’t heard of Thieves before? Go ahead and google ‘thieves experiment’ if you want to see more scientific studies of how it holds up against other cleaners.
I love sharing this experiment of Thieves cleaner!
(Experiment by Kristina Carter)
I’m not a scientist but I am a mom to 3 kids under the age of 5 and a husband that works in some dirty conditions. (Large animal vet) We have a lot of laundry around here…all the time. I was hesitant to try the laundry soap because I had trained myself to buying the cheapest laundry soap I could find. I decided the Thieves soap a chance and now I’m hooked. Think a plant based detergent won’t clean your clothes? Ellie got grass stains all over her adorable sweater that happens to be my fav. I’m talking deep deep grass stains I’m not even sure what she was doing to get such bad stains on the elbows? Anyway, I also heard the Thieves dish soap (yes there is a whole cleaning line!) works great as a spot treatment so I put a little drop of that on the stains and worked it in really well.
Check out the warning on the dish-soap…if swallowed drink plenty of water. Finally something I don’t have to be worried about having under my sink!
After I worked the soap in for the spot treatment I threw it in the washer and added just 1/4 a capful of Thieves laundry soap. This was actually more than enough because only 1/4 a cap is required for a full load!
You guys. Grass stains on a white knit sweater…gone. All with a plant based non-toxic soap. Yes please!
So, are you interested but not sure how to go about getting yourself this kick-butt plant soap? Please email me and I would be more than happy to send you a sample!! I’m telling you..ditching out the junk products I always used in the past has been the best decision I have ever made! You can also shop directly on the Young Living website! As a retail customer you’ll pay full price… become a member to snag it at wholesale price!
