What is Thieves essential oil blend, why is it so powerful, and why was it chosen to be in all the Young Living cleaning products? The popular Thieves essential oil blend is a proprietary combination of Cinnamon Bark, Lemon, Rosemary, Eucalyptus, and Clove essential oils.
Young Living’s Thieves essential oil blend was inspired by the legend of four 15th-century French thieves who formulated and wore a special aromatic combination of clove, rosemary, and other botanicals that they believed provided protection while they were stealing. French authorities recognized that there was such value in this mixture that upon the thieves’ capture, they received a more merciful punishment on condition that they divulge the ingredients in their secret formula.
Thieves essential oil blend has a warm, spicy scent. Diffuse it for a fresh, clean aroma around the house or apply it topically for its cleansing properties.
Thieves benefits: •Cleanses when applied topically •Neutralizes and purifies the air from strong odors when diffused
Thieves usage: •Refresh musty carpets by adding 5 drops of Thieves to a cup of baking soda; combine well and let sit overnight until the oil is absorbed. Sprinkle over carpets and vacuum thoroughly. •Apply Thieves to the bottoms of your feet to refresh yourself after vigorous activity. •Diffuse it around the classroom or in your home for a fresh, clean fragrance and to neutralize the air from strong odors. •Add a few drops to your dishwater or dishwasher to eliminate odors and boost cleaning.
Young Living Thieves Vitality™ was specially formulated so that you and your family can enjoy the benefits of Thieves essential oil internally. The difference between Thieves Vitality and Thieves essential oil is simply the labeling and recommended usage. The essential oil in the Vitality product line is the same 100 percent pure, therapeutic-grade essential oil as the topical/aromatic counterpart; however, Thieves Vitality is labeled for dietary use and is the appropriate product to use when sharing dietary uses with others.

One of the best ways to make small changes in your home is to be aware of what ingredients to avoid. Here is a list of twelve ingredients that are best to be avoided.
1. BHA and BHT are endocrine disruptors and carcinogens and are used mainly in cosmetics as preservatives. 2. Coal tar dyes are carcinogens and have a heavy metal toxicity; they are commonly found in processed foods, lipstick, hair dyes. 3. DEA-related ingredients are also carcinogens; they are found in creamy or foaming products, such as moisturizers and shampoos. 4. Dibutyl phthalates are endocrine disruptors, as well as a reproductive toxicant; they are commonly used in nail care products. 5. Formaldehyde-releasing preservatives are carcinogens; they are used in a variety of cosmetics as preservatives. 6. Parabens are endocrine disruptors and they may interfere with male reproduction; they are used in cosmetics as preservatives. 7. Parfum/Fragrance are carcinogens, and can cause neurotoxicity, allergies and skin sensitivities; they are used in variety of cosmetics to add aroma. Companies do not have to disclose the ingredients due to “trade secrets”. 8. PEG compounds can be contaminated with 1,4-dioxane which may be a carcinogen; this ingredient is commonly used as the base for cosmetic creams. 9. Petrolatum is also a carcinogen it is used in hair products for shine, and as the moisture barrier in lip balms/sticks. 10. Siloxanes are also endocrine disruptors, as well as a reproductive toxicant; they are used in cosmetics to soften, smooth & moisten. 11. Sodium laureth sulfates are carcinogens; they are used in foaming cosmetics, shampoos, cleansers, and bubble bath. 12. Triclosans are also endocrine disruptors, and can cause antibiotic resistance; they are found in toothpastes, cleansers, and antiperspirants.
Endocrine disruptors are chemicals that may interfere with the body’s endocrine system and produce adverse developmental, reproductive, neurological, and immune effects in both humans and wildlife. According to the Environmental Working Group, “There is no end to the tricks that endocrine disruptors can play on our bodies: increasing production of certain hormones; decreasing production of others; imitating hormones; turning one hormone into another; interfering with hormone signaling; telling cells to die prematurely; competing with essential nutrients; binding to essential hormones; accumulating in organs that produce hormones.”
So when you look at so many of the problems that people are dealing with - reproductive, sexual confusion, thyroid, and cancer - can you see how all of these chemicals in products used every day could be contributing to so many problems?

Here are the top 5 reasons you should be using a plant based cleaner.
1. Safety: Have you read the label on the back of a commercial cleaner? Warning! Flammable! Do not ingest! Keep out of reach of children! Many chemicals used in household cleaners have not been tested for safety. Household cleaning supplies are one of the top five substance classes accounting for calls to the National Poison Control Center. Many commercial cleaners contain ingredients that are endocrine disrupting chemicals, carcinogens, or neurotoxins. Kids, babies, and pets are even more vulnerable to chemical exposure because they are smaller and cannot get rid of toxins as easily as adults. It is definitely worth ditching harsh chemicals for a cleaner with plant- and mineral-based ingredients. 2. Air quality: Did you know that indoor air is 5–7 times more polluted than outdoor air? Most cleaning products contain Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), which have been associated with many health problems, including damage to the liver, kidneys, and the central nervous system. They have also been shown to harm our lungs and cause throat irritations and headaches. VOCs are released when products are used and can linger in the air long after we clean. When we breathe, we inhale the air—as well as whatever is in the air. 3. Environmental impact: Harsh chemicals found in cleaners are not only harmful to our bodies, but they also have a major impact on the environment and are huge contributors to environmental pollution. Some conventional cleaning products contain ingredients that are toxic, non-biodegradable, and from non-renewable resources like petroleum, so they harm the Earth's ecosystems. Harsh chemicals may contaminate the water through rivers, streams, and lakes, which affects wildlife, plants, trees, and us! Plus, there are thousands of chemicals that are in cleaning products that have never been tested for safety. 4. Convenience: It's much easier to clean with a few products that take care of all your cleaning needs, rather than having to have a whole arsenal of toxic products under your sink and in your bathrooms. With Thieves® Household Cleaner, you can tackle multiple cleaning jobs in your home without switching products as you clean! It cleans countertops, windows, mirrors, floors, toilets, showers, and pretty much everything else. Plus, you don't have to worry about getting bleach stains on your clothes or accidentally mixing dangerous chemicals together. It’s worth a try for the convenience alone. 5. Cost: The cost of buying cleaners is expensive, especially if you have to buy multiple cleaners. Thieves Household Cleaner is very cost effective, and it comes in a concentrated form. There are approximately 60 capfuls of the cleaner in a 14.4-ounce bottle. Using the medium degreasing ratio, you can get about 29 16-ounce cleaners. That’s less than $1 a bottle!
Why worry about all the what if’s? Be empowered and take charge of your chores by using a cleaner with plant-based ingredients. These are only five of the many reasons to use a plant-based product. Get started today! You will be so glad that you did. http://www.thisworks.biz
You’re at the store or looking online and you see a cleaner. It makes promises of a germ-free environment. You assume it’s safe for use. Most people assume cleaning products have been tested and are safe for use, but that's not true.
Just because a commercial cleaner promises a germ-free environment doesn’t mean there aren’t hidden dangers and risks associated with it: • Conventional cleaning products contain many endocrine-disrupting chemicals that can wreak havoc on your respiratory system, cellular health, thyroid, adrenal glands, and even mental clarity. • Indoor air quality is five to seven times more toxic than outdoor air quality mainly due to conventional cleaners. • Studies show that many toxicants invade our bodies. They have been found in blood, urine and breast milk, as well as in the umbilical cord blood of newborns. • Nurses who used disinfectants to clean surfaces at least once a week had a 24 percent to 32 percent increased risk of developing lung disease. • Regular use of cleaning sprays can have as much of an impact on health as smoking a pack of cigarettes a day, according to this study.
Companies have not had to clear even a basic safety review before using a chemical in a consumer product. The government has had to prove that a substance caused harm in order to control or replace a dangerous chemical. Join the millions around the world that are saying enough is enough and using our products to have a clean and safe environment. You too can take back your control.

Feeling overwhelmed or like every product is harmful to your body?
I’ve been there too.
Take a deep breath, at first it may seem impossible to have a chemical free home, but don’t be overwhelmed. There are a few simple, practical changes that can make a huge impact on your home.
The first step to a chemical free home is to become aware. Understand that there are chemicals found in many household products that can be harmful to your health.
Step 2: Focus on avoiding chemicals you can control, like the products you choose to have in your home.
Step 3: Educate yourself on ingredients and chemicals you should avoid.
Step 4: Take action. You don’t need to replace every single product in your home tomorrow. Transitioning to a healthy, plant-based home is a lifestyle journey and you can make changes over time. Start by replacing the products you use most frequently. This may be your household cleaner or maybe your hand soap. Focus on replacing products used on those most susceptible. Children and those with a compromised immune system can be more prone to the harmful effects of chemicals.
