Thieves Household Cleaner {& giveaway}

I've been using Young Living essential oils for over a year now and I hate to admit that I just started using them to clean my house! It is a little overwhelming when you jump on the oils bandwagon because there are tons of oils with hundreds of uses. Who knew that Rosemary oil could be used for congestion and lemon could take away the sticky iodine residue from my belly from my C section. With oils, you learn something (or 10 things) everyday. I finally got my hands on the Young Living Thieves Household Cleaner (what took me so long, no clue), and what's funny is I am actually enjoying cleaning my kitchen, even as a tired newborn mama of 2. Thieves has got to be my most used oil because well, I am a mom and kids are germy, and the smell is divine! Prior to using Thieves Cleaner I was using Greenworks and Honest which are great brands but now my house smells yummy and I know it is CLEAN! Not familiar with Thieves? Thieves essential oil was inspired by he legend of four 15th-century French thieves who formulated a special aromatic combination composed of clove, rosemary, and other botanical while robbing the dead and dying during The Plague (from Young Living). I love telling the story! Anyway, I love knowing that I am using 100% natural products in my home and don't have to worry about Ford eating off the floor or having an epic meltdown on the kitchen floor. How does it compare to mainstream cleaners? It is better! No issues with it's cleaning capabilities and let's face it, the smell of Thieves is enough to make you want to make the switch!

One thing that is important when cleaning with essential oils is using a glass bottle to store your cleaners in. I recently got an Amber Glass Spray Bottle by Emmi's Essentials to make my cleaners with (Thieves cleaner is a concentrate and mixed with water so it lasts a long time!). The dark amber color is critical in protecting and preventing the oil from degrading due to UV light. Each spray bottle from Emmi's Essentials comes with a dropper to make mixing your cleaners mess free, labels, and a DIY Green Cleaning Essentials guide complete with household cleaning recipes. I have the big 16oz bottle so I don't have to continue to refill my cleaner...as a mama I use a lot of cleaning products especially in the kitchen! Get your hands on some Thieves Household Cleaner and an Emmi's Essentials amber spray bottle and get to scrubbin'. Where else do I use EOs in cleaning my home? A few drops of lemon in my dishwasher to take away smell and keep my dishes shiny, lemon in my garbage disposable for raunchy smells, Thieves spray on door handles and remotes to remove germs, Purification diffused when we have people over to keep the air clean. So many possiblities! Looking for other ways to use essential oils to clean your home? Pinterest is your best friend! Check out these recipes
