Thieves All Purpose Cleaner + Free Printable!

Most conventional cleaning products are loaded with toxic chemicals, carcinogens, and synthetic fragrance. Don’t believe me? Pull out your phone, and download the app “Think Dirty”.

You’ll be able to scan the barcodes of your cosmetic and cleaning products, and see for yourself what the ingredients mean. Think dirty gives you a simple rating on a scale of 1-10 to see how toxic (or clean) each product in your home is – you might be amazed at how many “green” branded cleaning products were filled with carcinogenic toxins.

For example, this Clorox product is so green-washed, you would never expect that it would rate a 9 (10 being the most toxic) the Dirty Meter! Another great example is this lysol all purpose cleaner, which rated a 9 on the Dirty Meter:

Coming from a home that already used what we considered to be “green” cleaning products, I was very surprised & concerned to find so many toxic ingredients – hiding in the products in our cupboards! After I realized this, I started to make my own cleaning blends, using water, vinegar, castile soap, and essential oils – or even better, using Young Living Thieves all purpose cleaner!

What is Thieves?

Thieves essential oil is a blend of clove, cinnamon bark, rosemary, lemon, and eucalyptus. This blend is based on a historical account of four thieves in France who protected themselves from the black plague with these 5 essential oils, while robbing victims of this killer disease. Thieves, and the individual oils contained in this blend, have been tested and proven to be highly effective against many kinds of bacteria.

Here’s the scientific proof :

Effect of a Diffused Essential Oil Blend on Bacterial Bioaerosols
Authors: Chao, SC | Young, DG | Oberg, CJ
Journal: Journal of Essential Oil Research

This study, conducted at Weber State University in Utah,  found that diffused Thieves essential oil blend has a 99.96 percent kill rate against airborne bacteria after only 10 minutes of exposure: “There was an 82% reduction in M. luteus bioaerosol, a 96% reduction in the P. aeruginosa bioaerosol, and a 44% reduction in the S. aureus bioaerosol following 10 min of exposure. Results for the time exposure threshold of diffused oil showed that after only six min a 90% reduction in M. luteus viability occurred. ”

Conclusion:
Diffusion of the oil blend, Thieves, can significantly reduce the number of aerosol-borne bacteria and may have application in treating air for enclosed environments and preventing transmission of aerosol-borne bacterial pathogens.

Antibacterial properties of plant essential oils
Authors:
SG Deans, G.Ritchie
Journal:
 International Journal of Food Microbiology

This study examined fifty plant essential oils,  for their antibacterial properties against 25 genera of bacteria. The 10 most inhibitory oils included cinnamon and clove. 

Antimicrobial activity of clove and rosemary essential oils alone and in combination.
Authors:
Fu Y, Zu Y, Chen L, Wang Z, Sun S, Efferth T.
Journal:  Phytotherapy Research

This study looked at the antimicrobial activity of clove and rosemary essential oils: “Both essential oils possessed significant antimicrobial effects against all microorganisms tested. The antimicrobial activity of combinations of the two essential oils indicated their additive, synergistic or antagonistic effects against individual microorganism tests.”

Low Cost

Thieves all purpose cleaner is a concentrated liquid. You only need 1 part cleaner to 30 parts water, for most of your cleaning purposes. This means that a 64 oz bottle of cleaner  goes a long way! When you do the math, each 30 oz spray bottle you make, only costs 83 cents. That is absolutely amazing! Not only is this cleaner environmentally friendly and non toxic, but it is also saving you money (and time running to the store all the time to purchase cleaning products).
