Are you interested in cleaning with essential oils?  You may already be familiar with using essential oils to alleviate stress or to create a welcoming environment.  But you also may have heard that your household cleaning products contain toxins that harm your health.

Essential oils get the job done and “smell clean”, not harsh!  In our office, we love Thieves® Household Cleaner and other essential oils by Young Living™.  They can be mixed with water and other household ingredients to make any type of all-natural cleaner you with essential oils

As you clean house for the holiday season, start replacing chemical-containing cleaners with natural options.  It’s easy to switch to cleaning with essential oils!  You can replace some of the most common chemical-containing products in your home with one all-purpose natural product:  Thieves® Household Cleaner.
