Who would have guessed that something like hand soap would be the thing that brings me back to my blog! I was just about to post a little status on my Facebook page about this topic but realized there was so much more to be said.
By January 1st, 2017 you wont be able to buy antibacterial soap in Minnesota. The active ingredient, triclosan, has been in products for over 30 years. Was found in the urine of 75% of people tested and may be linked to endocrine disruptions, allergies, and more; along with showing no proof that it is more effective than regular soap and water.
Many people use antibacterial soaps thinking they are making them healthier by killing nasty bacteria, but really you are killing all bacteria. Even the ones your body knows how to battle, but doesn’t get the chance to flex it’s muscles against, because it just got wiped out. The threat of “super bugs” in the medical field is real, things that antibiotics no longer can treat.
What can you do? Use regular soap and water to wash your hands and body. This cuts out toxins and triclosan but always read labels. Many natural and organic products do use essential oils for scent. But I also love using Young Living’s Thieves line because not only does it safely clean our hands, but also gives a little boost of Thieves to our immune systems! It’s better than antibacterial soap because it doesn’t just get rid of the issue, it gives your body building blocks to build your body up!
I got the Thieves Essential Rewards kit because I’m a Young Living member and enrolled in Essential Rewards. (Which is amazing! More to come about that later) But you can also get the kit as a Premium Starter Kit if you mainly want to focus on eliminating toxins from your household environment.
I got this kit back in July and those two little bottles in the front are a bonus I got for my order that month as well as an extra bottle of the household cleaner. But everything else comes with the kit.
(Here is the stock photo)
- Thieves essential oil blend, 15 ml
- Thieves AromaBright Toothpaste, 4 oz.
- Thieves Household Cleaner, 14.4 oz., 2 bottles
- Thieves Mouthwash, 8 oz.
- Thieves Foaming Hand Soap, 8 oz., 2 bottles
- Thieves Waterless Hand Purifier, 1 oz., 2 bottles
- Thieves Spray, 1 oz.
Now what is all this other amazing stuff, you might ask.
Well the first thing they are going to do is get you a bottle of Thieves Essential Oil because that is the base of all these amazing products. If you haven’t heard about Thieves yet you may have been living under a rock because this stuff is the bomb. (Whoa, I just had a flash back to the 90’s)
Then you get toothpaste that isn’t filled with fluoride and other toxic ingredients. (If you don’t have the Think Dirty app yet, get it and start scanning your household products.) You also get a mouth wash that I love!
Household cleaner. This stuff is a strong hitter. It took out the stain in my kitchen sink after I had done some teal foils in a clients hair. We had finished up and I had washed my bowl and brush out causing it to stain the sink.But I didn’t need to bleach it! Thieves for the win! It can be used highly concentrated or less for glass and light cleaning.
“Thieves household cleaner combines natural ingredients with Thieves and lemon essential oils for safe, effective cleaning power.”
Foaming hand soap, here it is ladies and gents. The main reason for this post. Hand soap that cleans and boosts your immunity. You get 2 of them along with the soap pumps.
Waterless hand purifier for those hand sanitizer junkies, here is your healthy alternative.
And last but not least, 2 little spray bottles of Thieves spray which you can use when out and about. Disinfect any surface easily by spraying on and then wiping off. Young Living has covered every base!
Let me know if you want to get this amazing kit or break it down to an individual item. New and existing members can get it as a kit for a great deal! Or check with the person who shared this link with you because they can probably help you out as well. Stay oily and healthy my friends!
