The Soap Chronicles.

Exactly one year ago was the last time I bought soap up until our Amazon Prime shipment came in yesterday.

13 months ago I joined YL. Slowly but surely I made small changes- transfer buying the things I spent years buying at Bath & Body Works, Victoria’s Secret & Target. YL is an essential oils turned wellness company with over 25 years of expertise- their quality is unmatched to anyone else.

09.17 I bought three 32 oz. bottles of Dr. Natural’s Unscented Castile Soap from Amazon for $10.19 a bottle + free shipping… little under $32 bucks total. I tossed all the fragrance-filled handsoaps, body washes, cleaners (replaced all my cleaners with one cleaning product- Thieves), etc & set out to make our own.

In all of five minutes at the most I can make any of the above & then some. Not only has this saved me time & gobs of money, but we now have a healthier home.

By adding a capful of Castile soap to my Thieves cleaner blend (capful of Thieves/topping the rest off with distilled water) I can clean every single surface in my house (it took 10 months for us to use one bottle of Thieves Cleaner Concentrate but that’s a story for another time then)

Combine a capful of Thieves, 1/3 of 8 ounce glass bottle of Castile soap, one T of olive oil top with distilled water and you have handsoap. Easily swap the Thieves cleaner for your favorite Young Living Essential Oils as you wish.

These are just a couple examples off hand of the possibilities. There’s seriously tons.

The recipe I used above for my new body wash is 1/3 an 8 oz glass bottle of Castile soap, one pump carrier oil (coconut, V6 or jojoba are among my favs) 20 drops Elemi- cleansing, in the same family as Frankincense, and amazing for all things skin- & 15 drops Eucalyptus Globulus- perfect for breathing this time of year & invigorating for morning showers🙌🏽

If you haven’t looked into green washing, it’s a real thing & for years I thought I was using “natural” products all because it was labeled as such. Research those ingredients- I guarantee most of which are synthetically made therefor anything but natural.

Knowing is half the battle, doing better because of it is the other half.
