Can you achieve a ‘true clean’ with Essential Oil Cleaners?

When I was pregnant with my son, my husband and I decided to dump all of our chemical cleaners in fear of the adverse effects they could have on our little boy’s health.  I had heard horror stories of children being rushed to the ER from drinking bleach and was not about to have this happen in my home!  It was not easy to make the change.  In fact, slowly, over time, even though I had an abundance of the ‘natural’ cleansers at my disposal, the harsh chemical ones made their way back into our home.  In particular, the bleach ridden bathroom cleaners.  And the reason was not because the natural ones I had been using did not work, it was because the toxic ones provided a ‘true clean’ smell.  The one that we all grew up with (even though it did not smell particularly good) and we knew it meant ‘clean’.

There has been a lot of research done on toxic cleaners – bleach specifically has been proven to irritate the respiratory system and anybody around bleach is more likely to have allergies, asthma and be prone to things like bronchitis.  Bleach can affect a person even when in a closed bottle.  The last 2x I cleaned with bleach, I got a cracked lip that took weeks to heal.

So, once again, we trashed the bleach and went on a mission to find a product to replace it that was safe, smelled good (i.e. clean) and was tough on soap scum and mold.  Since I did not absolutely love the smell of the first brand I tried, I decided to try Young Living Thieves Household Cleaner on the recommendation of a friend.  Thieves Household Cleaner cleans EVERYTHING!  My shower, my floors, my counters..  It can even be added to your laundry for extra soiled loads.  You can add it to baking soda to scrub your kitchen sink.  There is nothing it can’t do!   And the smell is absolutley amazing.

So, if you ask my husband and I if you can achieve a ‘true clean’ with Young Living Essential Oils and Cleaners, the answer is a resounding YES!  Try it, we dare you!
