Christmas with Young Living

Easy Christmas Gifts From Young Living

Did you know a lot of things have changed in the ways you can order from Young Living? 

If you’ve looked into becoming a part of Young Living Essential Oils before, then you probably remember something about having to start out with a premium Starter kit, in order to unlock the wholesale prices on the products.  Those kits are still available and a fantastic way to try out some of our favorite oils and products BUT no longer do you HAVE to order one of kits to get started. 

 Now, in order to get access to the amazing wholesale prices, all you have to do is order 100pv (about $100) in your first order OR set up a subscribe and save, a monthly subscription with at least one product in it (this is awesome for those items we use all the time, like deodorant, laundry detergent, hand soap, toothpaste, etc…). Wala, You get the benefits of joining Young Living and get to completely customize the items you get to try out!  Oh, and You’ll keep those benefits for a whole year! 

May I suggest a fun way to take advantage of all these new benefits? 

How about getting some of your Christmas shopping done at the same time? (Don’t forget to add some fun things for yourself) let me show you some of my suggestions for easy gifts this Christmas!

Home Made Liquid Laundry Detergent

I’ve never made my own home made liquid laundry detergent but, have always wanted to. I suppose I thought it involved a lot of steps and mess and just didn’t feel like tackling it, Until today!

And the only reason I even attempted to make home made liquid laundry detergent today, was because I found this awesome ingredients list and instructions that make it a whole lot easier than I ever thought it could be.

First let me tell you about some of the reasons why I want to have my own homemade liquid laundry detergent 

Laundry detergent is one of the most toxic, chemically laden products in our homes.

The Think Dirty app lists most of them as 8 or 9 on their toxic ratings.
listing problematic ingredients such as

  • Fragrance – possible Carcinogen, possible allergic reactions
  • Sodium Borate (also known as Borax) – Respiratory and sin irritation.
  • Alcohol Ethoxy Sulfate – skin irritation.
  • Diethylene Glycol – pregnant women use with precaution. this is restricted for use in cosmetics in Canada and completely banned in other countries. * a note here to say this ingredient is in Tide!! Did you know that? I sure didn’t!!

The last store bought detergent I had been using had over 30 ingredients!! With other leading brands having as many as 45 different ingredients!!!!

Now let’s look at the ingredients I’m using to make my home made liquid laundry detergent.

  • Washing Soda, Arm & Hammer
  • Baking Soda
  • Thieves Laundry Soap – from Young Living
  • Thieves Household Cleaner – from Young Living
  • essential Oils (optional but so great!)
  • Water

And that’s it! Now, not only do I know what is in my home made laundry detergent, but It’s so easy to mix together!!

Continue reading to find out how to make it or you can watch this video ( I wasn’t going to post this video, I’ve never recorded a video with my kiddos “help” and it’s not the way I wanted it to be. but hopefully it helps you see how easy it is to make this! and maybe a peak into real life over here)
