Welcome to another day of Eliminate Toxins from Your Home – Kitchen Edition. I hope you enjoyed the Living Room Edition of Eliminating Toxins from Your Home. Have you started replacing those candles with diffusers? I’d love to hear what you think so far!
Today, I wanted to talk to you about creating a safe environment in another room that we use often.
You can use your diffuser with oils in the kitchen to create a comforting environment. You can also use your diffuser and oils to eliminate sometimes the not so pleasant cooking odors lol.
Besides creating specific aromas or eliminating others, you can improve the living conditions in your kitchen by replacing many of the toxin filled cleaners that have potentially dangerous chemicals. So many of us have a cabinet of cleaning supplies right in our kitchen.
Have you ever looked at the ingredients that are in those cleaners? Even many of the “green” cleaners contain ingredients you do not want in your home or near your loved ones.
Here are some of the ingredients you should avoid:
Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) and Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES) – These are both surfactants that are commonly used as emulsifying cleaning agents in household cleaners such as spray cleaners, laundry detergents and dishwasher detergents. They basically are added to cleaners to create a lather. Most of the time, they are synthetically derived and can cause skin irritation.
Triclosan – This is a chemical that can negatively impact the thyroid and endocrine system. It is found in many hand sanitizers, antibacterial soaps, deodorants, toothpastes, detergents, cosmetics, etc. It was actually just recently banned by the FDA to be used in “antiseptic washes” but can still be found in other products such as toothpaste, cosmetics, kitchenware, furniture, toys and even clothing.
Fragrance – Ah, we talked about this one before. Anytime you see the word “fragrance” that should automatically be a red flag for you. A “fragrance” is considered a trade secret so companies do not have to disclose what ingredients are used to create the synthetic fragrance. It could contain toxic chemicals that can be linked to cancer, reproductive and developmental toxicity, allergies, respiratory difficulties, and other sensitivities. I’m not sure why anyone would want to risk any of this.
I don’t know about you, but I don’t feel like risking my families health to use these products. Instead, Young Living has an awesome line up of products that are both safe and effective.
Thieves Household Cleaner
One of my absolute favorite products from Young Living is the Thieves Household Cleaner. It is a plant-based, ultra-concentrated cleaner that can be used on virtually every surface of your home. I’m serious when I say we clean everything with it. Kitchen counters, toilets, sinks, tubs, floors, furniture, toys, mirrors, glass, wood, walls, carpets, etc. It is created with naturally occurring surfactants derived from coconut and sugars and infused with Thieves Essential Oil, so you get a powerful clean (and degreaser) without harmful ingredients. It’s kid-safe, pet-safe and septic-safe!
Thieves Hand Soap
When you are cooking in your kitchen, or even before you eat, you need to clean your hands, right? Thieves Foaming Hand Soap leaves your hands soft and clean without harsh anti-bacterial agents found in many soaps.
Why not grab a soap made formulated with only the highest-quality, plant-based ingredients and infused with pure essential oils? You can cleanse and purify your skin and not have to worry about any harsh ingredients. There are two Thieves options to pick from: Thieves Cleansing Soap (bar) & Thieves Foaming Hand Soap.
Thieves Cleansing Bar Soap
- Provides natural, gentle exfoliation and soothing benefits from oat bran
- Leaves skin feeling soft, smooth, and refreshed
- Made with a 100% vegetarian formula and infused with Clove, Cinnamon Bark, Eucalyptus Radiata, Lemon, and Rosemary essential oils
- Gentle enough for all skin types
- Formulated with aloe vera to moisturize the skin
- Formulated with non-gluten-containing ingredients
Thieves Foaming Hand Soap
- Combines Thieves, Lemon, and Orange essential oils with other naturally derived ingredients to clean hands
- Instant foam makes it easy to lather and rinse
- Leaves skin soft and clean with a light Thieves scent
- Delivers a gentle clean for the whole family
- Comes in a single, 3-pack, and a 32-oz. refill
Both of these soaps are formulated without synthetic dyes or colorants, parabens, petrochemicals, or sulfates. You can easily swap out those chemical-laden soaps for these much safer options!
Thieves Dish Soap
What about those dishes? Thieves Dish Soap is a plant-based solution, infused with Jade Lemon and Bergamot essential oils as well as the Thieves blend. It contains no sulfates, dyes, formaldehyde, phosphates, or synthetic perfumes and uses natural grease-cutting agents, leaving dishes sparkling clean with no residue. Your hands will also thank you for using such a gentle formula.
Thieves Automatic Dishwasher Powder combines the power of natural enzymes, essential oils, citric acid, and saponins derived from soapberries for a superior cleaning system without the use of harsh chemicals. It’s also infused with essential oils for extra effectiveness and a great, fresh scent. It removes dried-on food, grease, oil, and other contaminants so you can enjoy sparkling clean dishes without compromising your health.
And don’t forget to clean your fruit and veggies! Thieves Fruit & Veggie Soak and Thieves Fruit & Veggie Spray – both have the same base formula and come packed with essentials oils that get the job done. The soak comes in a small jug; you simply add a little to a basin of water, soak, rinse, and enjoy eating your fruits and vegetables as nature intended. The spray can be used to give your produce a quick spritz before rinsing and enjoying!
