We as a society are becoming more aware of the importance of buying organic and whole foods as we try to keep as many pesticides and chemicals out of our bodies. What many of us don’t realize is that anything that touches our skin or that we breathe in we are taking in to our bodies on a cellular level. Many conventional household cleaning products expose our family to toxins that can wreck havoc on our endocrine and hormone systems. Toxins that can cause developmental problems, skin and lung irritation, and lead to cancer. I’m so thankful I took the time to research what products I had in my home; products I used for years, loved and trusted. We cannot control everything in our environment but we can control what comes in to our homes.
Sarah Harnisch, a certified aromatherapist and news anchor among other things, has done extensive research on the toxins in our homes. She prepared a 30 minute audio packed with information, “The National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health studied 2,983 ingredients in our products at home and of that 884 toxic ingredients, 314 of them caused biological mutations, 218 caused reproductive problems, 778 were toxic to the human body, 146 they new caused cancer tumors, but they were still allowed in the United States even though they were band in other countries around the world. 376 caused eye and skin irritation. These chemicals are allowed in nearly every type of cleaning supplies in the United States…26 seconds after exposure chemicals are found in measurable amounts inside the human body. The average women applies 300 chemicals to her body every single day; 80 of them before breakfast”

Backing soda, Vinegar, Hydrogen Peroxide, Olive Oil, Castille Soap, Essential Oils, and Thieves cleaner are perfect alternatives to many of the mainstream cleaning supplies on the market. Thieves All Purpose Household Cleaner has pretty much replaced every other cleaning product in my house. I use it on my wood floors, bathrooms, leather couches, windows and mirrors, and the kitchen. Thieves Cleaner is infused with Young Living’s Thieves Essential oil. Thieves is a powerhouse blend of Clove, Lemon, Cinnamon Bark, Eucalyptus Radiata, and Rosemary Essential Oils. This powerhouse blend replaces harsh chemicals found in most cleaning products and is extremely effective when used as a cleaner.
