Cleaning The Smart Way

I must admit, cleaning is not my favorite part of household chores. It’s tedious and never stops. But it has to be done. My son is 8, so he mostly helps on the making mess part, more than cleaning, although he is getting better and helps more. I am very comfortable letting him clean any part of the house, because I don’t have to worry about any harmful toxins in our cleaning products. Why? Because all I use to clean the entire house is Thieves Household cleaner! Yes, it’s true, just one bottle of cleaning product does the job! And you know what’s best? It’s natural so my 8 year old can help and I don’t have to worry it will have harmful impact on his health. It’s brilliant really. Thieves Household Cleaner is plant based and is formulated with powerful Thieves Blend.

So how do I use it? Depending on what I’m planning to clean. Kitchen and bathroom are the two most difficult spaces to clean. Bathroom, because of the humidity, mold quickly grows in the shower. Kitchen, because I cook so often, it’s just constantly getting dirty and the oily residue creates a bit of goo on some of the surface.

So last night, after one too many kombucha, I could not sleep. I had this crazy energy and I decided to wash the stove. I had recently been frying huge batch of meat and it left stains on the stove that I wasn’t able to clean previously. So my first step was to create a paste. 2 tablespoon of Baking Sofa, 1 capful of Thieves household cleaner and 3 drops of Lemon Essential oil. Why Lemon EO? Lemon oil is not only great oil to diffuse or use for beauty products, it’s super helpful for cleaning. It’s powerful and removes gunk and sticky mess from your surfaces (don’t use on plastic though!). So after I made the paste, I spread it all over that stained stove and left to sit for about 5 min.

In the meantime, I made surface cleaning spray. For kitchen, because of the oil, I use 2 capfuls of Thieves Household Cleaner per sprayer bottle (280 ml) and 3 drops of Lemon EO. Top the rest with water and get in cleaning and wiping. It works miracles and smells really good!

As I was wiping around the stove, I realized my extractor hood has not been cleaned for a while. So I opened it and omg! It was so dirty! Full of oil residue and dust. Just nasty! Anybody who cleans his kitchen knows this is the worst part of the cleaning, because it just doesn’t go away, it’s sticky and needs some serious heavy degreaser. Well, guess what? My Thieves Spray mixture, the one I make to clean my kitchen with, makes it super quick and easy!! Spray over the surface and just wipe off! No kidding! I made short Video in the middle of the cleaning just to show you how easy it is! You gotta watch it.

So within few minutes I was able to completely clean the entire extractor hood and it was squeaky clean! And without any hard rubbing because you know, I just had my nails done yesterday, I wasn’t interested in ruining my manicure😜.

When I was done with that, it was time to clean around the burners. The paste has been sitting and working silently to I just took a wipe and scrubbed it gently off! All that burned gunk went away! I am not kidding you. Few minutes and the stove was like new. Just brilliant. I was so happy. I can’t even imagine how much bleach I would have to use normally. Instead, I was able to use all natural ingredients and didn’t have to do any heavy lifting either.

Do you know why else is Thieves Cleaner do awesome? Not only you use the same product to clean your entire house so you save space, you save money too!!! You don’t have to buy 5-10 different products anymore. You buy one product and you use just that. It’s highly concentrated, so you only use little bit and it lasts forever. It smells great too, it slows down mold growth better than any other product on the market! This is your cleaning best friend!

How To Lose Weight The Healthy Way – Part 2 – Detox and Cleanse

DAY 2 DETOX and CLEANSE

Toxic rebound is another reason for putting o weight again over and over. Fat is protective of our bodies. It literally encases toxins in our bodies so they can’t harm us. When the amount of toxins exceeds what our body can process at one time, fat will encapsulate the toxins to keep them contained. The fat stores it away. That’s cellulite. We all hate it. That’s why you often see skinny people with cellulite. It’s basically our body’s way of protecting us from toxins. And when our body is toxic, we put on weight to restore the fat – toxins ratio.

So we need to cleanse our system to be able to loose weight.

HOW?

1. Decrease the number of toxins you’re taking in. Anything processed and synthetic is toxic. I’m not only talking about food, but products we use as well. Your shampoo, body care products, candles, make up. As there is no legal definition for the word NATURAL in cosmetics, the companies get away with a lot. I recommend downloading Think Dirty App yo see what is in the products you are using. You will be shocked. At least I was.

2. Increase the water and detoxifiers/binders intake. Essential oils, raw foods, fresh juice, chia seeds, parsley, cilantro, aloe, charcoal and good supplements, such as Young Living’s ICP. ICP helps keep your colon clean with an advanced mix of fibers that scour out resides. Healthy digestive system is important for the proper functioning of all other systems because it absorbs nutrients that are used throughout the body. ICP provides ingredients such as psyllium, oat bran, flax and fennel seeds to form a combination of soluble and insoluble fibers. Enhanced with a special blend of essential oils, the fibers work to decrease the buildup of wastes, improve nutrient absorption and help maintain a healthy heart. ICP provides 2 g of dietary fiber, 1 h of soluble fiber and 1Grade of insoluble fiber per serving. These will help you loosen and flush the old toxins from your system.

3. Change your diet. At least for some time, try and cut out or decrease the amount of gluten, dairy, sugar and processed food. Focus on eating lots of vegetables and fruits, eat “real” food. Read labels. It it contains ingredients you can’t even pronounce, don’t buy it. Buy lean meats. Some people prefer to stick to vegetarian diet when detoxing. I say find what works for you so you are not craving too many things at the same time. Sugar cravings will be probably the worst, so you do not want to overwhelm yourself. That might lead to failure.

4. Stock your pantry on healthy foods only. Don’t buy what you don’t want to eat. Have enough fresh vegetables so if you’re hungry, you can just grab a carrot.

5. You might have detox reactions such as headache, fatigue, vomiting or rashes. If you do, it means you’ve exceeded your ideal detox rate. Increase water intake and decrease detoxifiers for little while, then start increasing little by little.

NINGXIA RED

I always say, if you could only choose one Young Living Product, choose NingXia Red. Why? Because it is simply amazing. It has so many effects on our bodies and our health that it takes an entire booklets to explain. I will try to sum it up here with help of few pictures as well.

NingXia Red wolfberry juice incorporates the benefits of Goji berry, yuzu juice, aronia berry and therapeutic essential oils into a powerful antioxidant and nutritionally balanced drink. The NingXia and Chinese wolfberry have been used for thousands of years to support the immune system, promote longevity and naturally detox the body.

In China, the wolfberry fruit is more often referred to as “goji” or lycii fruit. They are the bright red fruit of the Lycium barbarum plants. There are over eighty species of wolfberries worldwide that vary in antioxidant and nutritional value.

Lycium barbarum L is considered to have very high antioxidant properties in China as it grows in a flood plain which is sourced from the Himalayan Mountains. The Himalayan Mountains are known to be one of the riches sources of minerals and organic nutrients found on earth.

What are the Benefits of NingXia Red Wolfberry Juice?

All these are big reason for us to drink NingXia Red daily. It is also good for children. So remember that those 30 ml in the morning can improve your life on many many levels. It comes to approx. 280 JPY/ day. That is less than one Starbucks coffee. If you buy the 2 pack or 4 pack, the prices reduces significantly. For new members, Young Living Japan even offers free 750 ml bottle of NingXia Red when you purchase the Premium Starter Kit and sign up for Essential Rewards.

So for our purposes here, what is amazing is that NingXia Red helps balance blood sugar and supports natural detoxing process.

Drink 30 ml of NXR every morning, if you are tired in the afternoon, have another 30 ml. During special times of need, you can double your dosage.

DIGEST & CLEANSE

Digest and Cleanse essential oil supplement was specifically designed to soothe gastrointestinal upset and support healthy digestion.

The oils promote cleansing of the digestive systems that come from stress, lifestyle and toxins. This can irritate the gastrointestinal system and cause occasional upset that interfere with the body’s natural digestive and detox functions.

We know that cleansing of the body’s systems particularly the digestive system is so important to provide the proper uptake of nutrients, support healthy immune system and more. It is natural for toxins to build up in the body, but it is unhealthy for toxins to accumulate!

Take one capsule a day with food or as needed. Soothes the bowel and stimulates stomach secretions, which will aid in digestion. Cleansing and detoxification of the large intestine or colon. Supports normal and healthy bowel movement function.

This product can be combined with Parafree or ComfortTone supplements for more effect.

Digest&Cleanse was one of the first products I ordered from Young Living as my digestion was not ideal. Next week I am starting proper cleansing and detox and Digest&Cleanse will be one of the supplements Im gonna take daily.

As with any supplements, I recommend drinking plenty of water and eating lightly.

DETOXZYME

Detoxzyme Digestive Enzymes Supplement is a home remedy for detox support as it promotes cleansing and supports healthy digestive system.

It is important to use enzymes when losing weight, or commencing any body detoxification methods. Enzymes support normal function of the digestive system, which is essential for maintaining a healthy regime.

Learn about other benefits of digestive enzymes and the types of enzymes so you can select the best enzyme for you.

Take one capsules per day or up to three capsules per day three times per day. Take in between meals to support in detoxification.

It is super important that you drink plenty of water throughout your cleanse! This product is not for children. If you are pregnant or have medical condition, consult with your doctor before you start.

There is many other methods or procedures recommended or discussed when it comes to Detox and cleanse.

1. Colon cleanse or enema. I am ok with water enema, but I dont think i will jump on the coffee enema bandwagon. It just somehow does not sit right with me. However, if that is your thing and you tried it, feel free to share with us. I do water enema during my cleanse and I like it. Sometimes, I add little bit of salt to replenish electrolytes.

2. Detoxifying Baths – Epsom salt, herbs and Baking Powder help detoxify your body and are also pleasant and relaxing. That is one thing I really enjoy during my cleanse.

3. Go to Sauna – it opens up your pores and you sweat it out. Make a body scrub and rub your skin.

4. Drink herbal teas. I enjoy Puerrh or SenCha. They also help me go to toilet more, which is really important during detox and cleanse

5. Deworm – some people believe there are many parasites from the food we eat and the lifestyle we live that get in our bodies. I am patiently (more or less) waiting for my bottle of Young Living Parafree to be delivered. It should be here within a day or two and I will make separate post about my experience after some days of using it.

6. Go for massage. It will have great effect on your body and mind.

7. Apple Cider Vinegar – many believe in its detoxifying qualities. 1 shot of ACV in the morning is recommended, def diluted with water.

I am very sure there is much more true and tried Detox steps so please share with us!

What does your body need? iTovi knows

Today I went to meet my dear friend. Not only she is amazing, gentle person, she is also my boss here in Japan. Although we tend to call ourselves a Tribe, so in that term, she is the Leader. She is very knowledgeable and I turn to her and one more friend when I need help and advice. Today, I really needed help to analyze my business and look at it from perspective of successful builder. I went to her and learnt what I could during our quick meeting. I also gained a lot of positive energy and that was very healing to me.

She was also kind enough to give me iTovi Scan. For those who never heard about iTovi, it is great gadget by Young Living. You hold it in your hand and it scans your body responses and tells you what you need to fix and suggests Oils and Supplements. Every time i have a scan, I am very surprised how amazingly accurate it is.

itovi-scanner

I have been quite tired lately and have been complaining about muscle discomfort in my neck and shoulders. And I had some stress too, to be honest.  My iTovi read me very well and recommended me these products to fix my Biopoints and give my body what it needs.

Cel-Lite Magic Massage Oil

I had to laugh as i added this oil to my May Essential Rewards because I need it. This oil promotes healthy skin by moisturizing, repairing damage, toning and rejuvenating skin cells. It also contains Vitamin E, Grapefruit and Juniper Essential oils. Yes, I need this. I need more pampering in my life.

cel-lite-magic-oil

Cypress

I bought this oil two months back, mostly because of my husband but I start loving it myself too. It is very rejuvenating and relaxing. And I need to relax. iTovi needs it too, obviously.

Aroma Siez

The fact that iTovi knows that I need Aroma Siez made me smile. I have been dousing myself in this oil for few days now. It is amazing blend of basil, peppermint, marjoram, lavender and cypress (yes, cypress again, I do need it) and it relaxes, calms and soothes muscles. How fitting.

Envision

I never tried Envision, but LeeYen had a bottle in her collection and let me try it. OMG! Such a beautiful smell. I must say, I am very much in love with Young Living’s Spiritual oils. They resonate my soul and they help me through hard times. Envision is a blend of Spruce, Geranium, Orange, Lavender, Sage and Rose and promotes resourcefulness, stimulates feelings of creativity and encourages hope and strength. It supports focus, renewal and emotional release. Again, absolutely amazing how fitting this oil is to me in this particular moment in my life. This is all I need, it sums me up in one word, in one bottle. I am adding this to my May ER because I realize I cannot be without it. Haha

My last oil is DiGize

I love DiGize and I use it quite often. It is a blend of Anise, Patchouli, Ginger, Tarragon, Peppermint, Juniper, Fennel and Lemongrass and promotes digestive comfort and eases indigestion and nausea. I carry a bottle of DiGize in my handbag and it works wonders. I can just rub in on my belly or ingest it and I feel better in no time.

digize-essential-oil

I am always truly impressed with iTovi and with the oils. They are such a great addition to our family’s health regimen and chemical free life. Essential oils are plant’s blood and remedy and has been around for thousands of years. I am lucky to be part of company that does not compromise when it comes to quality over financial gain.

How to deal with mold

Mold is a pain. We all deal it with. Especially here in Japan it gets tough. The humidity is high and it is hard to keep apartments dry and mold free.

Naturally all stores offer many products to remove mold, i.e. Kabikila (Mold killer). They work for sure but omg they are very strong and full of harmful chemicals. Up to a year ago I would brace myself and use it in our bathroom or where ever I saw mold coming. Windows open, I would spray the surface and still I would choke on the fumes. Our house was mold free but at what cost?

Luckily I discovered Thieves Household Cleaner. Thieves Household Cleaner is perfect for cleaning your house, chemical free.


Thieves Household cleaner is formulated with the power of Young Living’s Thieves oil blend but also includes the scent of Lemon Essential Oil for even more uplifting Aroma. Once you use this cleaner, you can never go back to store bought cleaner. The sweet and spicy smell leaves your house smelling great and it’s super effective. You can use it for the whole household! One cleaner for everything. And it is safe around everyone in your family, including small children and pets!


While spring cleaning, I came across my husband’s belts that were stored away. Over the few months, they got moldy. The old me would nuke it with bleach. I would literally drain it in bleach till it’s all gone because mold scares me. It’s bad news. New me? I grabbed a sprayer bottle, poured in a cap of my Thieves cleaner, added three more drops of Thieves Essential Oil plus two drops of Purification oil and water, then sprayed the belts and wiped them. That’s it.


Three minutes later, all belts shining clean and I know that the mold won’t get to it. Why? The Thieves! Thieves is amazing and powerful combination of Clove, Lemon, Cinnamon, Eucalyptus Radiata and Rosemary Essential oils.

This oil and also the Thieves Household cleaner will completely change your household cleaning routine.


Thieves Household Cleaner is a product of Young Living. If you would like to purchase with 24%, contact me here or through Facebook and I will get you your product within few days.

Why Young Living?

young-living-spring-oil

Essential oils are sold literally everywhere. You can buy bottle of Lavender for few bucks on the internet. So why pay top price for it? I was asked many times why I chose Young Living and not any other company. Well, integrity and trust. There is no law as per what can be in your bottle of Essential oil. The FDA requires that there has to be 5% of Essential oil in a bottle for it to be called Pure, Therapeutic or Organic Essential oil. Yes, only 5 %. So the rest can be carrier oil or basically anything else, because makers do not have to put ingredients on the bottle! So you have to trust your company and you have to choose well so you know that there is not something else in that bottle. You have to know that the bottle of Lavender you bought contains only Lavender.  That is why I use Young Living. When you are buying Young Living Essential oil, there is 100% of that oil.

Young Living has absolute control over their oils from the planting up to sealing in the bottle. They grow only on virgin lands. Before they start planting on their farms, they make sure the land was never fertilized. They are so transparent and open that you can fly to any of their farms, open any door and see for yourself. No other company will do it. Because Young Living is the only company that owns their own farms. They also harvest the crops themselves at the peek of its value and distill it at the right temperature. If you do visit their farm, beware that you will most probably be asked to pick weeds, as they handpick the weeds on all their farms!

 

Lavender-farm-oil

Why should we pay so much attention that our Essential oils are organic? Well, if you do not buy organic, imagine they sprayed all that field with pesticides. These sprays are dangerous to human body, we know that, that’s why we try to buy organic food. Now if you are eating non organic food, you are getting little bit of the pesticide. BUT if you are using Essential oil that has been sprayed with pesticides, you are getting huge amount. Did you know it takes 27 square feed of Lavender plants to make one bottle of Lavender? So when you are using Essential oils, it is same like eating the whole field sprayed with pesticides at once. And we do not want that. This is why you want to make sure you oils are organic and no pesticides. Young Living has only Organic oils.

So does it really matter? Can you tell the difference between any essential oil? Well imagine you had a 100 ml bottle of 100% orange juice. You take 95 ml out of it, leaving only 5 ml in it and fill it up with water.  Would you taste the difference between the 100% and the 5%? It also matters, if you only use your oils in your diffuser, because if you do not know the source of your oil, you might as well be inhaling all the bad things that are in the bottle together with the oil. All oils are not made equally. Same as all food is not made equally or all wine is not made equally. The product is just not same.

aroma-complete-oil-set

 

As per size, essential oils are smaller than cells and viruses. They can penetrate your skin faster than any modern medicine. They can affect every cell in the body within 20 minutes. Essential oils can have profound physical, physiological and psychological effects on your body. There is special rules about how to use essential oils with children as well and I can help you understand how to use Essential oils safely at your home, for your beauty and your family. Make sure you keep in touch with me through this blog, my Facebook http://www.facebook.com/mamadslife or in my Oily Family Group on Facebook as well.  https://www.facebook.com/groups/1260361580700354
