Many of us are learning about the toxins that are all around us, hidden in the products we use every single day. The toxins are collecting in our bodies, causing BODY BURDEN. We need to be paying attention to what we put ON our bodies just as much as what we put IN them!
FACT: 26 seconds is all it takes from the time something touches our skin, until traces of it can be found in every organ of our body. EVERY ORGAN OF OUR BODY. Every organ of our children's bodies.
This is important. This is very important.
THIS IS WHY WE CARE about the level of toxins in our daily care products. This is one of the huge reasons we started searching to find alternatives to our store bought goods.
The Toxic Substance Control Act of 1976 grandfathered in an estimated 65,000-100,000 chemicals currently on the market today. They have had no testing to determine if they're safe.
What does that mean to you?
Simply put: These chemicals have not had any safety testing and we know very little information about their effects. Of the chemicals tested, toxic labeling is required only if 50% or more of the animals tested with a chemical die. Under the TSCA, manufacturers are protected by trade secret laws that allow them to keep their ingredient lists a secret.
This is one of many reasons we want to avoid toxic chemicals in the home.
Read all labels, not just the food ones. There are so many hidden chemicals in our everyday products that are harmful to our health and body . What we want to do is EMPOWER ourselves, and EDUCATE everyone on what to avoid, and how to avoid it. Together, we can seriously change the world.
Here are a few to be aware of:
Short term toxicity can include coughing, skin irritation, rash, wheezing, headaches, nausea, vomiting, and irritability. Long term toxicity can include cancer, lung disease, heart disease and reproductive disorders.

Let's talk about the amazing Young Living LAUNDRY SOAP.
Thieves Laundry Soap is a plant based formula. It gently and naturally washes your clothes, cleaning them without any chemical or synthetic residue. Natural enzymes and powerful essential oils add to the formula’s strength to leave your clothes fresh and clean with a light citrus scent.
Thieves Laundry Soap can be used in all washers, including high-efficiency, and its highly concentrated formula (6X) will provide around 64 loads with just 32 fl. Oz (946 ml).
When Young Living formulated Thieves Laundry Soap, there were two major questions they asked themselves: What ingredients do we include? Most importantly, what ingredients do we leave out? Like other products in Young Living’s household cleaner lineup, Thieves Laundry Soap’s purpose is to provide our members with a true clean provided by a plant-based formula that is free from harsh additives.
Here are three common ingredients that you may not have known about, plus a few tips on naturally keeping clothes white. If you’re looking to keep your whites bright without adding synthetic chemicals to the wash, try one of these easy alternatives:
Ingredients you don't want in your products:
1. Optical Brighteners
Many popular laundry detergents contain optical brighteners to give clothes the appearance of being clean and white. By reflecting blue light, optical brighteners give the illusion of fabrics that look whiter than they actually are. These chemicals are designed to absorb into fabrics and remain on clothes after washing. Use the Think Dirty App to look up your detergent. Thieves Laundry Soap is free from optical brighteners, because you don’t want your clothes to just look clean; you want them to actually be clean! Our plant-based formula uses pure essential oils and natural cleansing enzymes to wash your clothes and keep them fresh.
2. Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS)
Sodium lauryl sulfate, or SLS, is a cleansing agent widely used in products like soaps, shampoos, toothpastes, and laundry detergents. It is used so often because it’s inexpensive and produces lots of foamy lather. Many people are concerned about SLS in their products because it can sometimes cause irritation, itchiness, and may have other unknown side effects. Thieves Laundry Soap is free from SLS and other sulfates. The cleaning power behind Thieves Laundry Soap comes from pure essential oils and natural enzymes.
3. Synthetic Perfumes
Some people consider synthetic perfumes to be problematic because companies aren’t required to disclose the exact ingredients in the fragrances. But as the world leader in essential oils, we prefer to work with the refreshing scents of the pure essential oils that set us apart. Bergamot, Jade Lemon, and the essential oils in our Thieves blend provide a refreshing scent without any hidden synthetic fragrances.
Young Living’s Fruit & Veggie Wash safely and effectively washes produce with the cleansing power of three exclusive essential oil blends: DiGize, Thieves, and Purification. When combined with the other naturally derived ingredients, produce is easily and conveniently cleaned.
Just add a tsp. Thieves Fruit & Veggie wash to a basin of water: soak, rinse, and enjoy eating your fruits and vegetables as nature intended. Produce will also last longer when washed with this!
Banish herbicides from your life with just a few spritzes. Small but mighty, Thieves Fruit & Veggie convenient 2 oz. Spray is easy, quick and effective (woo hoo!). Because no wants to eat pesticides, dirt, and parasites on their fruits and veggies!
We like to say it's the little spray that COULD! Fits in any purse, backpack, or carry-on, making Fruit & Veggie Spray easy to take when on-the-go.
