Hello again, and welcome to this edition of Young Living’s Audio Education series. I’m Scott Johnson, Young Living’s Director of Global Education and U.S. Sales.
Not many people enjoy cleaning their house; but it is necessary. In fact, if you never cleaned your home, you might permanently damage it, or more importantly, create an unhealthy environment to live in. You have many choices when it comes to household cleaners; but unfortunately, the local store is filled with household cleaners that are full of toxic chemicals that can be harmful to your health…particularly children. Fortunately, Young Living provides a natural alternative to these chemical-laden and toxic cleaners found at the store…Thieves Household Cleaner. Every home can benefit from using this all-purpose, biodegradable household cleaner that is made from 100% plant and mineral-based ingredients. Thieves Household Cleaner is very versatile, and it can replace a number of products you currently use. Best of all, you can use it with the peace of mind that it’s safe for you, your pets and your family.
While bacteria and mold can be dangerous, some industrial cleaners on the market can pose an even greater threat to your health. Numerous people use these potentially dangerous, chemical-based cleaners every day, unknowingly exposing their family to the harmful effects associated with them, including respiratory irritation, chemical burns, headache, lung damage, reproductive harm, and birth defects.
In addition, these chemical cleaners have destructive consequences to our environment. Commercial and chemical-laced household cleaners are responsible for air pollution both inside the home and outdoors, groundwater contamination, and pose a threat to fish and wildlife.
With that said, cleaning products are necessary to maintain healthful conditions in the house and at the workplace. The key is to use cleaning products that are chemical-free, natural and environmentally friendly; and Young Living’s household cleaner is just that…a safe, all-purpose cleaner that you can confidently use in every room in your home without feeling the negative effects of harsh chemicals.
Now, having a household cleaner that is safe for your family and environmentally friendly great; but people want to know if it is an effective cleaner. You’ll appreciate that Young Living’s Thieves Household Cleaner is packed with the cleaning power and protection of Thieves. You can experience the wonder of this versatile cleaner as you watch tough stains disappear and problem areas in your home become simple and easy to maintain without using harsh or abrasive chemicals. I find it very useful to remove stains from clothing also.
We want to briefly discuss the history behind the amazing Thieves Household formula and how it got its name. Young Living’s Thieves Essential Oil Blend was created based on the legend of the four thieves in France who protected themselves from a plague by coating their bodies with cloves, rosemary and other aromatics. Now, they did this so they could rob graves of those who were hastily buried with their valuables. Interestingly, these thieves were able to avoid contracting the plague that was killing so many people. When captured, they were offered a lighter sentence in exchange for sharing their secret recipe.
Young Living’s Proprietary Thieves Oil Blend includes clove, cinnamon bark, rosemary, lemon and eucalyptus radiata, and has been specifically blended to offer the same kind of protection. Clove is legendary for its germ-fighting properties. It became famous for its protective power because of its purported use in the four thieves’ vinegar used by the grave-robbing thieves in the 15th century mentioned earlier.
Inhabitants of the east Indonesian island of Ternate were safeguarded from epidemics until Dutch conquerors destroyed the clove trees that flourished there in the 16th century. Historical accounts and modern scientific research validates the protective power of this significant oil.
Lemon essential oil has a strong, purifying and clean citrus scent that is revitalizing and uplifting. Due to its high limonene content, lemon essential oil is a natural cleanser prized for its germ-fighting and protective properties. Research by Jean Valnet, M.D. demonstrated that vaporized lemon oil effectively irradicated several common germs. It is an excellent choice to clean contaminated surfaces.
The warm, spicy aroma of cinnamon has been used throughout the ages to improve wellness. In 2008, French researchers found that cinnamon oil killed harmful organisms at concentrations of 10% or less. They published their research in letters in applied biology.
Eucalyptus radiata has long been an ingredient in some of Young Living’s most popular oils. Like lemon, it also contains limonene and offers strong protection against germs.
Rosemary has a fresh, herbaceous, sweet and slightly medicinal aroma. Until recently, it was used in French hospitals to disinfect the air and is respected as an excellent germ-fighting agent.
Thieves Household Cleaner is very versatile, and can be used on floors, walls, upholstery, fabrics, carpets, glass, pots and pans, in the dishwasher, as a de-greaser and even as a hand cleaner. You can quickly see that your closet full of harsh, chemical cleaners can easily be replaced with this single product. Considering all of its uses, it is a very affordable cleaner.
