“Making the jump to toxin-free”

So – I had a couple days off this last week to celebrate my wedding anniversary and lets just say “You know you are an adult when you choose to stay home and catch up on cleaning/laundry instead of go anywhere”… … …Well that got me thinking about how many times I’ve been asked recently about the cost of switching all of our household products over to non-toxic young living brands- I made this handy little graphic below to help highlight it. At the end of the day- the fact that the known toxins and chemicals in the store brands can be so incredibly toxic and disruptive to our limbic, neurological and endocrine- makes the decision easy. None of that for my family- we have enough issues as it is! 😉 I wouldn’t put a price on keeping my family healthy however, when it comes to swiping that debit card – the numbers check out.

DIY: Carpet Freshener

Do you ever wish there was a simple way to remove stingy smells from your carpet that was safe for both your children playing on the floor and your pets?

Me too- which is why our family uses these DIY recipes for our carpet cleaning needs:

  1. We utilize Thieves Cleaner from Young Living in our Hoover Carpet Cleaner rather than the chemical based cleaners.
  2. After the thieves cleaner cleaned carpet dries- we use a DIY Carpet Freshener Powder.

Want the thieves cleaner? Here’s the recipe. See below for where you can get these ingredients too.
