Is Doing Laundry Killing You?

The Best All Natural Laundry Detergent for Your Family

Okay, I am sure I got your attention with that title. I know most moms feel like doing laundry is a slow death!

But truly (I am being serious here), this is a topic I began learning about two years ago when I made the shift to take control of my family’s health and wellness. I wanted to know what was in the products I used – not just what I put in my mouth, but what I put on my body, cleaned my house with, and more.

Going chemical free has been a game changer in our wellness journey.

Did you know the detergent you are currently using could truly be making you sick or, even worse, slowly killing you with toxins that clog your body and are very difficult to expel?

Here’s a short list of some of the most common dangerous ingredients that you will find in typical store bought laundry detergent (even brands that claim to be “green” and/or “natural”):

Ditching Toxic Laundry Detergent

Go now and take a look at the ingredients in your detergent. Even better, take a look at the EWG.org website and see how they rate the detergent you are currently using. Just warning you – it may scare you!

Um, damage to organs? No, thank you! I feel that we often just chalk these symptoms up to things we just have to accommodate – and that is so far from the truth! Allergies and headaches can all come from added toxins that we do not need.  

Why not find an alternative so you and your family can live the best and most vibrant life now?

I was so happy when Young Living developed an all natural, plant based laundry detergent that I can feel great about using in my home with my family and my pets. What a relief. No more having to read lengthy ingredients on labels or be nervous about some of the ingredients I could not even pronounce or know why it was included.

How about finding a detergent that is concentrated too? This means less waste, less storage space, and less mess. Seriously, doing laundry can be enjoyable! It truly can! I hated lifting big heavy jugs of detergent. It was hard on my wrists. Not with this little concentrated container of Thieves. It rocks because it’s so small and portable!

Thieves Laundry Soap

You get 64 loads (I actually squeak out a few more because I will tip the jugs upside down and let all remains drip out and then add some water to it and swish around to get every last bit!) with this little bottle. I love the smell after my clothes come out of the washer and I can follow up my laundry system with my homemade fabric softener, as well as wool dryer balls. Add a few drops of Lavender or Purification on them in the dryer and it is so refreshing to fold laundry – really! All completely chemical free!

Are you looking for a chemical free alternative for doing laundry? Or maybe you have never even taken a look at your current detergent? That was me two years ago. I had no idea until I began reading labels. 

Grab a bottle of Thieves Detergent or add it to your new member kit.  You can choose from several different starter kits, not just the one with essential oils. Maybe you’d rather start with reducing chemicals in your home. The Thieves Starter Kit is the best one for you! It comes with hand soap, hand purifier, household cleaner, toothpaste, mouthwash, and more. The perfect replacement for all kinds of sneaky items in your home that are filled with chemicals your body doesn’t need.  

Start feeling your best today. You will not be sorry!
