Want the thieves cleaner? Here’s the recipe. See below for where you can get these ingredients too.
Purification Essential Oil
Lavender Essential Oil
Lemon Essential Oil
Pour baking soda into a bowl. Drop 10 drops of each oil into the bowl of baking soda. Using a fork, mix the oil/baking soda mix until the oils are evenly distributed.
Poke holes into the lid of the mason jar. Pour oil/baking soda mix into the jar. Screw cap on. Sprinkle over dry carpet and let sit for 10+ minutes prior to vacuuming up.
(this can also be used on couches/rugs/pillows etc)
There are many ways of using essential oils. Each of Young Living’s oils are labeled as either Topical/Aromatic. There is also an entire line of Young Living oils called Vitality that can be used as dietary or internally ingested! Here is some information on how you can start using your oils:
Diffusing oils can help purify the air and neutralize the air around you from mildew, smoke, and other odors. Diffusing can also help to protect you and your family from harmful things we breathe and help support mood regulation.
To inhale essential oils, try these options:
Direct application onto the skin is one of the easiest and most convenient ways to use essential oils. Topical use can be highly effective as the oils can easily pass through lipid membranes of cell walls penetrating cells and dispersing through the body in a matter of minutes! The best places to put them in my opinion? Definitely the neck, over the heart, and the bottom of the feet. The bottom of the feet are full of nerve endings and large pores allowing for faster absorption of the oils.
TIP: always test the oils on a small area of skin first. As the oils are so pure- they can have different effects on different skin sensitivity levels. Make sure you do what is right for you!
If you don’t want to use the pure oil topically- you can always use a carrier oil! Carrier oils extend oils when applied to a larger area and can also help decrease any skin irritation you may experience. Carrier oils should always be used for children. My favorite carrier oil is coconut oil and vitamin e oil. Other possibilities include grapes oil, sweet almond oil and even good ‘ole olive oil.

Here are the 11 oils and what we use them for:
THIEVES- the healthy-keeper. It helps kill airborne duckies, boosts immunity, makes our digestive systems work their best, and is just the greatest.
PURIFICATION- gets rid of bad odors and airborne germs, feels amazing rubbed on the outside of your throat. I love it in our laundry and on Toms or any shoes with leather inserts!
COPAIBA – supports body’s response to injury/irritations. Is a driving oil (enhances other oils!), regulates natural immune responses, can be soothing, promotes youthful appearance from the inside out.
FRANKINCENSE – Incredible for my skin and immune system, eases occasional and minor tension/anxiety, promotes feelings of calmness and balance (was given to baby Jesus as a gift, so cool!)
RC – contains 3 different kinds of eucalyptus which have naturally occurring eucalyptus (really awesome!), inspires and uplifts before working out, creates a comforting environment.
DIGIZE- supports a super healthy digestive system, alleviates nausea and upset/sour stomach. It is great for occasional irregularity or upset tummies, relief from occasional heartburn.
LEMON- naturally highlights hair, maintains energy levels, helps oily skin, calluses, cellulite, detoxing your body, THE WORKS!
STRESS AWAY- my favorite! exactly what it says- I roll it onto my wrists and the back of my neck anytime I need.
PEPPERMINT- helps me enjoy springtime outdoors. Soothes occasional head tension, supports digestive system (one of my go to oils for a sensitive tummy), promotes proper nasal and respiratory function. Love it!
PANAWAY- so many types of relief with this one! helps with occasional head discomfort, everyday join and muscle soreness, and that “time o’ month” cramp business.. yuck.
LAVENDER- the “swiss Army knife” of essential oils. We use it for enjoying the outdoors. It is great for relaxation, sleepy cream, a calm environment for the kids, and dry/chapped/irritated or burned skin.
