This week marked our second week of potty training. I’m not gonna lie, having done this twice before, I was dreading it. I really wasn’t sure I wanted to add washing clothes and scrubbing floors every five minutes to my endless to do list. Fortunately for me, my girl smashed it, but even so, every parent knows that floor mopping, bottom wiping and hand washing increases ten fold when potty training. This time round I had Thieves and I was so crazy grateful for it.
When I potty trained the boys I was heavily reliant on Zoflora, Dettol and Domestos. All three are highly toxic, highly irritant and considered poisons, yet I would spray, soak, wash and wipe every surface of my house with these religiously.
Synthetic fragrance is a silent killer
The biggest problem with these products is synthetic fragrance. I though I was doing the best thing for my children, but in fact I was filling my home with cancer-causing chemicals. It is no coincidence that they both struggled with irritated skins and respiratory symptoms throughout their early years.
When we know better, we do better.
Chemicals in our homes, both for personal care and in our cleaning products have been scientifically linked to many health conditions, including cancer. But we can reduce the risk by reducing our exposure to chemicals in the home.
Since we started using essential oils in 2017, our family has embarked on a wellness journey which has led us to remove chemicals wherever possible from our home. Rather than have a cupboard full of chemicals, we now have one natural, plant based cleaner in our home – Thieves Household Cleaner. It is completely non-toxic and contains a powerful blend of oils that effectively cleans your home. We use it on floors, walls, windows, bathrooms, everywhere, and one super concentrated bottle lasts us about 6 months. Oh and it smells like Christmas.
Don’t risk your health for the sake of a ‘clean’ home
Want to hinch your home without harming your health? I cannot recommend Thieves Household Cleaner enough for chemical free cleaning that WORKS. We also use the Thieves hand soap which we split into three dispensers and top up with water as it is soo concentrated!
Don’t risk your health for the sake of a ‘clean’ home, harness the power of nature instead.
Happy cleaning friends!
