Thieves Household Cleaner new formula boasts the most effective 100 percent plant- and mineral-based ingredients available with therapeutic grade essential oils including:
1. Vegetable-based surfactants like alkyl polyglucoside that are compliant with Green Seal and EPA Design for Environment (DfE) standards.
2. Biodegradable cutting agents like sodium methyl 2-sulfolurate and disodium 2-sulfolaurate from renewable sources.
3. Active ingredients like tetrasodium glutamate diacetate that are readily biodegradable and derived from food-approved amino acids.
4. The all-natural cleansing and disinfecting power of therapeutic-grade Thieves and lemon essential oils. All of the ingredients that make up this new formulation are ecologically friendly, come from sustainable sources, have biodegradable properties, and none of them are petroleum-based.
Not only that, every one of these ingredients received a "green" rating from the Enviromental Working Group website- www.ewg.org and ECOLOGICALLY RESPONSIBLE PACKAGING - meaning that they are "good for me, good for the planet, and good for the community."
ECOLOGICALLY RESPONSIBLE PACKAGING Thieves cleaner's packaging remains recyclable, but with the option to purchase the standard 14-ounce bottle, or a new 64-ounce economy size, you can do your part to cut down on packaging waste and production emmissions.
WHAT IS "PLANT-BASED"? Tracy Gibbs, PhD Pharmacognosy—the study of medicines derived from natural sources—consulted with Young Living on the development of the new Thieves cleaner. The term "plant-based" can cause some confusion, so we talked with Tracy about what it means to have a 100% plant- and mineral-based formula:
"Basically, if you trace any chemical back to its origin, it all comes from nature at some point; the key is in the extraction process," Tracy says. "Plant-based ingredients are those extracted from the source without the use of synthetic chemicals—typically by using water or ethonal. When you use plant-based, biodegradable products you have zero impact on the environment. It's important to use a natural household cleaner because it's what you do every day that matters. That's what determines your health, and where being environmentally friendly counts the most."
Thieves® was created based on research about four thieves in France who covered themselves with cloves, rosemary and other aromatics while robbing plague victims. This proprietary essential oil blend was university tested for its cleansing abilities. It is highly effective in supporting the immune system and good health; highly effective against airborne bacteria and other pathogens. Each of the oils selected makes Thieves very effective and an all time favorite. It is highly effective for eliminating mold and mildew- see below on toxic mold. Thieves oils are used in the Thieves household cleaner. Click on the Thieves picture to visit more on the amazing uses and power of Thieves.

Toxic Mold Spores
What is the number one common problem in homes alongside chemical toxins?
Toxic Mold Mold is an asthma trigger. In one recent study, household mold was found to increase children’s asthma risk by about 2.5 times. Medical studies have found that MOLD IS THE #1 CAUSE OF ALLERGIC SYMPTOMS. According to 1999 USAToday Cover story - there’s a 300 % increase in the asthma rate over the past 20 years ---- that has been linked to molds.
Canadians spend on average 90% of their lives indoors- is it any wonder that there is a growing public concern about the impact on human health?
Do you experience any of the following? Allergies Fatigue (chronic, excessive, or continued) Asthma Flu symptoms (chronic) Bleeding lungs General malaise Breathing difficulties Sudden hair loss Cancer Headaches Hemorrhagic pneumonitis Death Central nervous system problems Dermatitis Recurring colds Skin rash Eye and vision problems Diarrhea Chronic coughing or coughing with blood
Did you know? Molds are microscopic fungi that produce spores and are found everywhere in the environment. In fact, all the spores need to colonize and grow is moisture.
That The Harvard University School of Public Health studied 10,000 homes in the US and Canada and found that half of them – that is 50% - had "conditions of water damage and mold associated with a 50-100% increase in respiratory symptoms among occupants?”
In 1999, the Mayo Clinic concluded that 96% of chronic sinusitis – sinus infections – were caused by fungi. Symptoms can include headaches, nose, eye and throat irritation, nosebleeds and coughs, skin irritation and respiratory infections.
That black mold Stachybothrys found in home, office and school environments has been linked to fatal pulmonary disorders.
Warning: Mold remediation is a mounting problem: Bleach, Ozone, Chemicals And Other Biocides Are Not Effective!
Chlorine bleach is toxic - a gas that can be deadly when mixed with molds. “The use of a chemical or biocide that kills organisms such as mold (chlorine bleach, for example) is not recommended as a routine practice during mold remediation”. Source: EPA website in “A Brief Guide to Mold, Moisture, and Your Home.”
Commonly used chemicals do not effectively kill molds. For example, active fungal growth on a surface may produce a spore density of 1 million spores per square inch. Treating this site with a biocide that has an effectiveness of 99.999% would still leave an estimated 10 viable spores per square inch.
