Let’s talk about typical cleaners.
So, I say ‘typical’ cleaners, cause most of us have some form of bleach, disinfecting sprays, toilet bowl scrubs or other harsh toxin based cleaners found in our homes that we use on a daily, weekly, and/or monthly basis in the name of ‘sanitation’. This is all in efforts to protect our selves and families… or so we think. Let me share with you some facts and statistics shared in “Gameplan” by Sarah Harnisch:
“The #2 cause of death in the United States is cancer. I don’t know anyone who has not been touched in some way by this dreadful disease. 1,620 people a day die of cancer. 1 in 3 cases in the U.S. are directly linked to: poor diet, physical inactivity, weight, or… chemical exposure. The American Cancer Society says only 5 to 10 percent of all can cer cases are from gene defects. 5%. That means 95% of cancer cases are caused that we can control. It’s what we allow into our homes.
“The National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health studied 2,983 ingredients in out products at home – and found 884 toxic ingredients. 314 of them caused biological mutations. 218 caused reproductive problems. 778 were toxic to the human body. 146 they knew caused cancer tumors – but were allowed in the United States, even though they were banned in other countries around the world. Many of these [toxic] chemicals are allowed in common cleaning supplies in the U.S. – things under your cabinets right now.
“26 second after exposure, chemicals are found in measurable amounts in the human body.
“Some of the most dangerous chemical in our homes: Air fresheners; like plug ins or candles. Cleaning supplies, drain and oven cleaners, furniture polish, as well as dishwasher soap and dish soap. Beauty supplies and personal care products; hairspray, gel, shampoo and deodorant are laden with toxic chemicals. Most antiperspirant deodorant contains aluminum and we slather it on our lymph nodes for 70 years. Many scientists understand that aluminum exposure may be linked to Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease. Another top pollutant in the family home is laundry soap and fabric softener – you wash your clothes, it sits on your skin, it out-gasses in your closet all night long.’
How does this affect you?
You may see it in something as catastrophic as cancer. But most of us feel it in other ways: Lethargy. Inability to focus. Respiratory issues. Sleep trouble. Chronic inflammation. Headaches. Migraines. Unexplained pain. Skin issues – adult acne. hot flashes. Stress. Anxiety.
If you face any of these issues, it’s time to start eliminating some of the toxins in your home and replacing them with natural and effective products that smell amazing and will help your family stay within the wellness line.
Let’s talk about natural clean.
I know, I know… this seems overwhelming!! What are you supposed to use to replace all those harsh chemicals?! There’s sooo many things in our lives that are exposing us to unnecessary toxins that are creating environments that leave our bodies at in-optimal levels of wellness.
Do yourself a favor and slow down for a sec, k? Don’t try and do this all at once. One by one, start a “ditch ‘n switch” in your home and life. Let’s talk about just 1 alternative that can get you jump started on clearing out the toxins sitting under your sink cabinets.
Thieves Household Cleaner.
Just this one bottle of concentrated, organic, plant based cleaner can replace most, if not all, of the toxin-laden cleaners in your home.
The proprietary oil blend called, Thieves, contains these essential oils: Clove (Syzygium aromaticum) bud oil, Lemon (Citrus limon) peel oil, Cinnamon (Cinnamomum verum) bark oil, Eucalyptus (Eucalyptus radiata) leaf oil, and Rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis) leaf oil.
Consider doing some research on your own to understand more of the cleaning power behind these individual plants and how they can benefit your family as you clean with them in your home!
This cleaner can diluted for all kinds of cleaning in your home. You don’t have to worry about rinsing out the tub after you clean it with THC before you put your babies in it. You don’t have to wonder if the spray you use to disinfect your butcher block is leaching toxins into the strawberries you cut up there for your family. You don’t have to worry about breathing in the harsh fumes of typical cleaners, like you have to as a expectant mom. Or worry about asthma triggers for your kids with respiratory issues.

Thieves as an oven cleaner! Check out what Lavender Lauren says about her Thieves cleaning experiment!!
How many of you have cleaned your ovens with that AWFUL, feels like you can’t breathe because you are choking from the toxins, spray? You practically have to leave the house to even breathe. Do you think a product that makes you feel that way is safe? Is healthy? Didn’t think so. Trust me, research it. Well, this is PROOF that you do not need those toxin filled chemicals to GET THE JOB DONE and not at the expense of your health! With a Thieves Cleaner, a little Thieves Dishwasher Powder, and elbow grease, my oven has never looked so good!
The reason I add in Thieves Dishwasher Powder, is because of those really stubborn areas. It has cleaning agents and enzymes that removes even the toughest grease and baked-on food. I just sprinkled a little over those spots, sprayed some Thieves Cleaner on top, let it soak for a couple minutes, and scrubbed them out. And the best part… NO CHOKING ON TOXINS! I didn’t have to hold my breath while I cleaned, and make sure my kids weren’t around the area, I was able to BREATHE with ease knowing that what I am using is 100% safe for my body and my family.
Thieves cleaner in the bathroom
Before ………………… After!
Check out the experiment Colleen Siambanis shared in our joyful oil team page:
So my water softener has not been working for three days and we have very hard water and seven people in our house. So as I was showering today I couldn’t stand the rust/copper residue on my tub. So I mixed a tiny bit (1/4 teas.) of Thieves Household Cleaner with water (2 oz.) in a small spray bottle….. And cleaned my tub after a shower without gloves because there’s NO CHEMICALS OR TOXINS! the results speak for themselves! (I did enhance the pictures a bit for lighting)
Thieves Household cleaner as a stain remover
Talya Barbanente, another joyful oiler, shared this on our private team page:
Thieves cleaner is a great stain remover! My son’s lips have been chapped and they cracked and bled onto his sheets. I dabbed some Thieves cleaner on it [undiluted] before throwing it in the wash, and it pulled out the stain perfectly!
I’ve got your interest, right? But you’re like, “Yeah… but what’s it cost?”
