So, you’re excited about diving in to the wonderful lifestyle of Young Living but don’t know where to start? You may be thinking to yourself, “I know there are products in my home that aren’t the best for my family’s wellness, but I just can’t see how I can afford to change out all these things at one time.” This can be a completely overwhelming thought when you are just starting out. But, there is a very easy, not so daunting, way to get those products switched out, get you and your family on the right path, AND stay on budget!
This is what we call Transfer Buying. Organic and “natural” products from the store can contain some seriously questionable ingredients, and are usually higher in price than conventional products we might use to keep our homes clean and smelling fresh. Here is where transfer buying comes in. Let’s say your monthly budget for cleaning supplies is $50. This would include all of your bathroom cleaners (toilet scrub, glass cleaner, tile cleaner), kitchen cleaners (liquid dish soap, surface disinfectants, stainless steel cleaner, cooktop cleaners), and floor cleaners. Now, I don’t know about you, but I have found that all those individual cleaners are not only expensive, but they are also full of synthetic fragrance. The ingredient lists on the back are chock full of all kinds of words nearly impossible to pronounce, or worse, trade-secret blends of chemicals.
Enter Thieves Household Cleaner from Young Living. One 14.4 fl oz bottle of Thieves Household Cleaner typically lasts about 6 months or so and can replace ALL of those products. And for only $22 with a wholesale membership! Mix a capful with a spray bottle of water and you’ve got a natural, toxic-free all purpose cleaner for all of your surfaces! Dilute it a little more, you’ve got the perfect glass and stainless steel cleaner that will leave your mirrors and appliances shiny and streak-free! Got a tougher job? Grab a mason jar, some baking soda, and a cap full of Thieves Cleaner and you’ve got yourself some homemade, amazingly powerful, cleaning scrub! There are Thieves products for your personal care needs too! Laundry soap and dryer sheets causing your sensitive skin to be constantly agitated? Thieves laundry soap to the rescue! Add in some organic wool dryer balls with a few drops of Lavender, Purification, or Lemongrass to your dryer load and you’ll have a whole new laundry experience!
Young Living has some amazing choices to get every room in your home free of the toxic items we have all had in our homes. By transferring where we spend our monthly budgets, we can kick the toxins out that are causing so much harm, and bring in things that not only help us get through the daily grind, but that also keep our families healthier. In just three months, you could be on your way to replacing all those areas in your home that are a cause for concern. Essential Rewards helps us do this! This monthly program allows you to take that $50 you would be spending at your local big box store on chemical cleaners and choose healthier options instead. Here is how it works. You sign up for Essential Rewards, you decide what you want in your order and the date you want it to process, and they ship it to you! Before it processes next month, you can change the items in your order, the amount, and the processing date if needed. No hassle, no gimmicks, no stress and completely flexible. You’ll also earn points back on EVERY purchase, EVERY month that you can then redeem for FREE products. Young Living truly makes it easy and affordable to make better choices for the products we bring into our homes!
