plant based personal care products
all the thieves
The Thieves line includes a variety of all natural, nontoxic home and personal care products with the Thieves blend added. Thieves contains clove, lemon, cinnamon, eucalyptus radiata, and rosemary. It smells like Christmas, but we love it all year long! The Thieves Toothpaste (we love the Aromabright) and mouthwash are perfect for optimal oral health, and we keep the hand soap in every bathroom and the kitchen too. For on the go use, keep some Thieves hand sanitizer in your bag.
The Thieves ER Kit, available exclusively on Essential Rewards, is a bundle of Thieves home and personal care products that is discounted. It's an incredible value, and definitely one of our favorites!
This ONE bottle is good for cleaning your ENTIRE home. Yes, really! No need to have 6 different bottles of toxic cleaner in your home. Thieves Cleaner is a plant based surfactant cleaner with Thieves essential oil blend added. It's powerful for cleaning gunk, but gentle for your family's health. It works amazingly well and is a must have for families.
shampoo and conditioner
Young Living offers 3 different shampoos and conditioners: Lavender, Lavender Mint, and Copaiba Vanilla. They are all sulfate-free and safe for color treated hair. The Lavender is intended for fine hair, the Lavender Mint for all hair types, and the Copaiba Vanilla is especially hydrating for dry or damaged hair. Feel free to mix and match! We love the Lavender Mint Shampoo + Copaiba Vanilla Conditioner. This conditioner is super thick and rich and rivals any expensive salon brand!
A NOTE ABOUT SWITCHING FROM MAINSTREAM SHAMPOO:
Because YL shampoos are all natural and super gentle, if you're used to typical shampoo you may feel like it isn't "cleaning" your hair well enough. There tends to be a little bit of an adjustment period if you've been using shampoo that strips your scalp from all of it's natural oils. We recommend taking a couple of weeks to adjust to your new shampoo, and then we promise you'll be LOVING your super soft, healthy new hair.
body wash and bar soap
There are several different bath and shower gels and bar soaps. Our favorites are the Morning Start with Peppermint, Rosemary, Lemongrass and Juniper, or using the Unscented Bath & Shower Gel Base and making our own blends! A woodsy base like Northern Lights Black Spruce with some Lavender and your favorite citrus oils is a really nice combo.
There are several bar soaps as well: Lemon Sandalwood, Melaleuca Geranium, Morning Start, Peppermint Cedarwood, Sacred Mountain, Thieves, Valor, and Shutran.
YL lotions are all natural and full of non-toxic goodness. They have added MSM for skin softening benefits, and come with a variety of essential oil blends to support skin health while smelling nice too. We like Genesis, a Geranium, Palmarosa, and Bergamot infused moisturizer. The lotion also comes in Lavender or Sensation (Ylang Ylang, Jasmine, Coriander).
Especially for your children, it's important to be careful of the product you use. We recommend avoiding artificial fragrances and petroleum based products. For your favorite little ones, the Young Living KidScents line has shampoo, bath gel, lotion and toothpaste. They all smell SO yummy, and you can feel good that everything is made with safe, nontoxic ingredients.
WAIT, WHAT ABOUT CONDITIONER?
Yes, it's true...there is not a KidScents conditioner. However, we love the Copaiba Vanilla one and it works great for preventing tangles and smoothing long locks for kids!
