I am always looking for all-natural ways to clean my home. And since it’s wintertime and it seems like my kids are always sick, I was excited to try making a healthy cleaner. While I want to keep everything clean (obviously), I wanted to avoid all of the chemicals, and find a little something to help my kids stay healthier this winter.
So I found an easy, essential-oil-based recipe, including Thieves. While it seems oddly named, I have loved diffusing Thieves which is known for its cleansing qualities and supporting the immune system.
Here’s the easy recipe and the (free!) printables:

And here are the printables!
Just right-click this link or the image below and choose “save link as” to download the printable PDF. Just print, trim to the gray lines and stick on your bottles. If you have full-page labels, you can print on those – or just print on glossy paper and use spray adhesive. I included the recipe on the label because it drives me crazy when I have to go hunt down the recipe when it’s time to make more!
As always, these are for personal use only.
