Did you know that conventional laundry soap is a leading cause of skin allergies and irritation - especially in children? We don't often think about it, but the residues left on clothes and linens from conventional cleaners sit on our skin, often causing low-level irritation. Not to mention the chemical load that leaves over time! Even the ‘green' options may contain hidden sulfates, dyes and fragrance, among other things!

THE REAL F WORD… Let's talk about the real “F word” - fragrance. Fragrance is a very loosely defined term when it comes to use in personal care and household products. Fragrance and synthetic perfumes are problematic because companies aren't required to disclose the exact ingredients in the fragrances. Even ‘natural fragrance' is problematic. Just because something is natural, doesn't mean we want to rub it on our skin (ie: formaldehyde - a naturally occurring compound that we don't want on our skin!). As the world leader in essential oils, Young Living utilizes refreshing scents of the pure essential oils instead of fragrance. Bergamot, Jade Lemon, and the essential oils in our beloved Thieves blend provide a refreshing scent without any hidden synthetic fragrances.

Plus, almost all conventional options contain optical brighteners! Optical brighteners merely give clothing the appearance of being clean. By reflecting blue light, optical brighteners give the illusion of whiter-looking fabrics. The design of these chemicals is to absorb directly into fabrics and remain on clothes well after washing. Thieves Laundry Soap contains none of these synthetic chemicals and leaves no synthetic residue.

The Thieves Laundry Soap from Young Living gently and naturally washes your clothes, cleaning them without leaving behind any harsh chemical or residues. Fabrics come out of the washer clean and with a pleasant citrus aroma, thanks to a 100 percent pure blend of Thieves, Jade Lemon, and Bergamot essential oils!
