In 1976, Congress passed the Toxic Substance Control Act which grandfather in between 63,000-100,000 chemicals that were on the market. These chemicals were grandfathered in, without any testing, and are simply unregulated. Yep. Today, only about 50% of the chemicals on the market have been subject to any chemical testing at all. Under this act, manufacturers are protected by trade secret laws so that they do not even have to post what ingredients are in their products. Makes you angry, huh? Us too! If you go look at a bottle of cleaner in your home or on the shelf at the store, you may be surprised to see that they only list a small percentage of the ingredients in the bottle.
There are so many ingredients to be aware of due to carcinogenic properties: Alcohol, Aluminum, DEA/TEA, Propylene Glycol, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, TALC, Parabens and more. These are found in so many common household products and should be avoided as much as possible for more healthy and safe alternatives.

Quality of air inside homes is 5-7x more toxic than outdoor air quality.
It takes 26 seconds for chemicals in products to enter your bloodstream.
This is scary to think about.
Join us in replacing these toxins little by little, month by month, step by step - either with ready-made YL products below, or with DIY things we can make ourselves with oils. Things that are NOT HARMFUL for our bodies, but actually BENEFIT us. We have that option! Instead of $100 at Target on things that poison our families, let’s spend that money on good things that we know are safe and healthy.
Young Living created an entire Thieves Cleaning line covering everything we could ever need!
Hands down our favorite Thieves cleaning product is Thieves Household Cleaner! It lasts forever and is so versatile and useful. An all-in-one cleaner that will replace pretty much every cleaner in your home.
It is a concentrate and lasts for months! We clean everything with it: granite, floors, carseats, toys, toilets, bath, carpet, everything.. you name it. It’s as simple as adding a capful to a glass spray bottle and topping off with water. So easy. The bottle has different dilution ratios for heavier cleaning needs, too.
Best of all, it’s safe for our kiddos! No need to worry about littles touching surfaces and putting their hands in their mouths.
