Thieves products make it easy for you to switch out harsh, chemical-filled products in your home with clean, plant-based products you can feel confident using.
We’ve talked a lot about harsh chemicals and your health, to make it simple and easy for you to share, we put together the top 5 reasons you should be using a plant based cleaner. We’ve gone over most of this information, but this list summarizes it all into 5 points.
Have you read the label on the back of a commercial cleaner? Warning! Flammable! Do not ingest! Keep out of reach of children! Many chemicals used in household cleaners have not been tested for safety. Household cleaning supplies are one of the top five substance classes accounting for calls to The NSW Poisons Information Centre1
Kids, babies, and pets are even more vulnerable to chemical exposure because they are smaller and cannot get rid of toxins as easily as adults. It is worth ditching harsh chemicals for a cleaner with plant- and mineral-based ingredients.

- Air quality
Did you know that indoor air is 5–7 times more polluted than outdoor air? Most cleaning products contain Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs)2, (source: Australian State of Environment, soe.environment.gov.au), which have been associated with many health problems. VOCs are released when products are used and can linger in the air long after we clean. When we breathe, we inhale the air—as well as whatever is in the air.
#YLTIP Thieves Essential Oil
- Refresh musty carpets by adding 5 drops of Thieves Essential Oil to a cup of baking soda; combine well and let sit overnight until the oil is absorbed. Sprinkle over carpets and vacuum thoroughly.
•Diffuse it around your home or office for a fresh, clean fragrance and to neutralize the air from strong odours.
•Add a few drops to your dishwater or dishwasher to eliminate odours and boost cleaning.
- Environmental impact
Harsh chemicals found in cleaners are not only potentially harmful to our bodies, but they also have a major impact on the environment and are huge contributors to environmental pollution. Some conventional cleaning products contain ingredients that are toxic, non-biodegradable, and from non-renewable resources like petroleum, so they harm the Earth’s ecosystems. Harsh chemicals may contaminate the water through rivers, streams, and lakes, which affects wildlife, plants, trees, and us! Plus, there are thousands of chemicals that are in cleaning products that have never been tested for safety.

Ted talk by Matthieu Ricard: taking on: The habits of happiness.
This talk struck a chord in me as I have realised I have fallen away from not bring in my thoughts and emotions with some negative situations in my life that has caused me great frustration, grief and disappointment.
Control Your Negative Thoughts (Before They Control You)
This talk has made me aware that I have allowed circumstances of life and disappointments to distract me and I have allowed myself to focus and put too much energy to negative situations that has only caused me pain, grief and disappointment.
At one stage of my life I had become very aware of negative and positive thoughts and there affects, so I spent time training my mind to be quick and aware to choose positive thoughts only and not to allow myself to focus on the negative thoughts and emotion going on in my life. (emotions are there one minute and gone the next, right).
As I became more and more aware of my thoughts I was quicker to not allowing negative thoughts and emotions into my life. This was so empowering and I was so much happier.
When I was suddenly thrown into menopause my life was tipped upside down, I didn’t know what hit me!!! Depression was a big part of my menopause because of the suddenness it hit me and the negative mind took over and had me captured for some years.
Through a lot of research I came across an amazing company that offers natural products that I have been using now for some time that has helped to balance my menopause symptoms and bring some normality back into my life.
I had to come back and retrain my mind to focus only on the positives once again. How awesome is our brain, we can slip into to the negative but quickly turn it back to the positive.
I’m so pleased to have listened to this Ted talk. I am once again reigning in those thoughts and that’s the beauty of the brain because you can start again.
The control on the outer world is limited and temporary but we can capture every negative thought and turn it to a positive thought. The more you do it the more positive thoughts you will have.
Nurture the inner conditions of the mind and be conscious of your thinking and what you allow into your thought pattern.
Take care of what you focusing on, negative or positive. Anger or love, resentful or forgiveness.
What u choose will have either a positive or negative effect on your health.
When you choose to focus more and more on the positive when negative situation arise it will get easier and quicker to get rid of the negatives in your life.
Do you know what you’re putting onto your skin?? Do you know it’s all being absorbed into your body??
These ingredients are hormone disrupters.
Public awareness about the potentially harmful formulations of cosmetics is very poor.
We trust the Governments that they carefully regulate these chemicals and the manufacturers and the suppliers to provide safe products but this isn’t the case.
We are seeing increasing occurrence of asthma or our increasing affliction with multiple chemical sensitivity, auto-immune disorders such as chronic fatigue syndrome and allergies and the list goes on.
Many of the ingredients used in these products are also industrial chemicals, solvents and petroleum by?products which have safety warnings about their use and exposure. It is not just the chemicals of concern but we are using more and more of these products, from an earlier age and for a longer period.
According to the Environmental Working Group, woman will have around 185 chemicals on her skin daily, and a man will have around 85.
We need to choose wisely the product we apply to our bodies and what we are giving to our children.
I read a story of a teenager who died from using deodorant. See the link below. Our children need to be aware!
Choose non – toxic products where possible for your health and long life.
