A Cleaner, Easier Way to Clean

Want to have a sparkling clean home without all the toxic crap?! I have three kiddos under 6 so my home gets messy…a lot… but I felt so uncomfortable cleaning with products that have known carcinogens and respiratory irritants in them, the long terms affects of exposure to these are well documented and quite frightening, I wanted a cleaner that actually worked, smelled nice, and was safe for my kids to breathe in and touch; does such a thing exist?!

*note I’m talking about regular day to day cleaning, not Covid sanitizing, you have to get full on sanitizer for that sh*t, I use the thieves hand sanitizer in the giant bottle for hands and products coming into the home, which is on Health Canada’s certified list of sanitizers.

Ok let’s continue, I call my solution the Easy Button to creating a chemical free clean home– It’s easy and cost effective (YES)! This blog is full of quick tips, DIY recipes, and numbers breakdown of how you can SAVE MONEY with this magical solution. 

So what is it?! It’s Thieves (and a little know how)

Le’t start with some information about Thieves itself. You might be thinking…what’s the big deal? Here is a bit of science that shows that we can clean just about anything with this amazing blend. 

“A well-documented diffuser based study of Thieves showed impressive evidence of its antibacterial properties when Thieves was diffused against three different types of airborne bacteria – Micrococcus luteus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Staphylococcus aureus. After 10 minutes of diffusing Thieves oil, there was a significant reduction of all three types of bacteria (82%, 96% and 44% respectively).” 
And all the moms said 🙌

The product that changed how I clean forever, my all-time favorite, Thieves Household Cleaner!  

There is true joy in opening your cleaning cabinet and seeing ONE product instead of dozens (And that product was safe for you and your littles to breathe in and touch- why clean the little finger marks off of your glass with a harsh chemical when you know your babes touch it!) This one product can be used for: 



✔️Stainless steel







✔️Laundry Stains

✔️Sharpie stains


…and more!

Thieves Household Cleaner is ultra-concentrated and super easy to dilute. Here are some general ratios: 

– All-Purpose: 1 capful of Cleaner with 3 cups of water

– Heavy Cleaning: 1 capful of Cleaner with 1.5 cups of water

– Degreasing: Cleaner undiluted with a cloth 

Thieves in the Kitchen! 🍋 

✔️Thieves Dish Soap – effectively cleans your dishes without chemicals, dyes, or synthetics and multi-purpose for many cleaning jobs. Because we eat off our plates, duh! Use a chemical free cleaner!

Thieves in the Laundry 🧺 

Thieves Laundry Soap – can be used in all washers, including high-efficiency, and its highly concentrated formula (6X) will provide around 64 loads with just 32 fl! 

We’ve had some reports of the first few loads with Thieves Laundry Soap actually lifting and cleaning residue from the drum of the washing machine from previous detergents – requiring a few extra washes to fully remove the residue and getting your laundry to it’s new, freshest, cleanest state! How great is that?!

And while you’re at it, ditch the dryer sheets, they are one of the worst offenders in your home in terms of respiratory harm (and one of the first things my dr told me to ditch when we found out Harrison has pre asthma).

Thieves for your planties! 🌿

Spray Thieves (diluted with water 1/20) on your plant baby’s leaves and around their roots. This has been a game changer for giving me a green thumb. This doesn’t replace fertilizer, the Thieves spray keeps the conditions optimal for your plants to thrive and keeps that pesky root rot at bay. This trick has allowed me to keep 5 fiddles healthy and strong!

Not only can Thieves handle anything in your home, but it can support our body’s immune systems! I apply the Thieves Roll-on daily, and enjoy a cup of Thieves Hot Tea if I feel a tickle brewing in my throat. 

Thieves Tea ☕ 

1-2 drops of Thieves Vitality EO

2 drops of Lemon Vitality EO 

Hot Water 

Dollop of Local Honey

Stir in your favorite mug, cozy up in your comfy pjs and enjoy!

And one more of my favourite cleaning tips to keeping a tidy house quickly and easily:

Fill multiple glass bottles with the Thieves cleaner (remember one bottle of concentrate makes about 25 bottles) and spread them throughout your house, one in each bathroom, kitchen, a bedroom, laundry room etc. This way you can do quick tidy ups super often and really easy, because it’s no longer a ‘thing’ where you have to go and get all the cleaners and blah blah blah

Ready for your Easy Button?! YES! 🙌 Grab a Thieves cleaning starter kit and you’re good to go for at least 8-10 months!
