Thieves Cleaner by Young Living

This is all I use to clean every single thing in my home. Wood floors, granite countertops, showers, tubs, toilets, sinks, windows, mirrors, laundry stains, carpet stains, etc., with the occasional addition of baking soda for scrubbing power and Young Living’s lemon essential oil for degreasing.

Detox Baths

To boost the immune system and detoxify the body, increase magnesium, and sulfate levels, and boost methylation pathways. If in the thick of healing, these can be done daily (we gave my daughter daily detox baths starting at 16 months old when her healing journey began). If feeling under the weather these can be done multiple times a day.

Water Filters

  • Water filter – reverse osmosis, steam distillation, or Berkey filter.  Whole house is best, but especially for drinking water and ice.  Can also buy separate filters for tub and shower.
