After learning about the harmful ingredients common household cleaners contain, I wanted to make my own natural alternative. Will the natural cleaner still kill all the nasty germs and bacteria? We want to protect our family from all germs and not do more expose them to harmful cleaning ingredients. I heard about Thieves by Young Living and was so intrigued by the history behind it and it’s natural ability to kill germs. I had to make some for myself! It’s literally an all purpose cleaner you can use on counters, bathrooms, windows, floors and even to wash your fruit!
Thieves oil blend has a interesting history dating back to the 17th century when Europe was stricken by the Black Plague. A group of four thieves covered themselves with rosemary, cloves and other aromatics and robbed the homes of the ill stricken with the disease. The thieves never contracted the Black Plague, even though they were in the homes of the stricken. The secret to their immunity was a unique oil blend which offered a defense against the disease.
Thieves is a blend of clove, lemon, rosemary, eucalyptus and cinnamon bark.
How To Make
- 16oz Amber Glass Bottle (Amazon)
- Pretty Label (Etsy)
- 1 Cap Full Thieves Household Cleaner
- Fill Bottle With Distilled Water
Fill your amber glass bottle with the ingredients, screw the spray nozzle on, and shake. That’s it! How simple was that to make a 100% natural healthy alternative cleaner for your home? Since Thieves is concentrated and you only use a capful, it’s budget friendly, not to mention it smells so good too!
I purchased the amber glass bottles from Amazon and the adorable labels from Etsy. I suggest using amber glass bottles when making the all purpose cleaner because the glass will not absorb the scent and the amber glass will protect your cleaner.
