Laundry Much???

I don’t always do laundry but when I do…. oh who am I kidding? I do laundry ALL THE TIME! Family of three, nine year old kid, there is always laundry!

But did you know that how you wash your clothes, what’s in your laundry detergent, influences your health? Your detergent might smell amazing, but it might be the reason why your skin is irritated. Fragrances, preservatives, dyes, and other chemicals in laundry detergent can cause rashes in both children and adults. Laundry detergents contain lots of potentially irritating ingredients. And because your entire body comes in contact with your laundry, you can have reaction all over. Hmmm. Not me. Why?

Few years back I decided to be more careful what I use for our family. As a mother and wife, it is my responsibility to choose the right products we use at home. And I take it seriously.

So I decided to join Young Living Company and go as much toxic chemicals free as possible. No fabric softener and “clean” Laundry soap was part of the whole Ditch&Switch process.

Watch video how I made my Laundry Soap and Stain Remover Spray and recipes are below

https://youtu.be/ynbNKci2r7c

Today I would like to share my recipe for Stain Spray and Liquid Laundry Detergent. Not only both of them are non toxic, they are also very effective, can be done in a minute and very cost effective. Instead of Fabric softener, I add white vinegar to my load and use Wool Dryer Balls with Essential oils for beautiful smell.

Stain Spray

Ingredients

100 ml of peroxide

50 ml of Thieves Dish Soap

1 capful of Thieves Household Cleaner.

Mix together in sprayer bottle and use as needed. When spraying the stain, let it work for about 2-3 min before you wash.

Cost breakdown

Peroxide 99¥, Thieves Dish Soap 292 and 52¥ for Thieves Household Cleaner. So your amazingly smelling, non toxic stain spray costs you 443¥ !!! That’s nothing comparing to about 1300¥ for store bought stain removers that are full of dangerous ingredients.

(500 ml of peroxide costs 494¥, Thieves Dish soap costs 2133¥ for 365 ml and Thieves Household Cleaner costs 3402¥ for 426 ml)

Laundry Detergent

Ingredients

1/4 cup of washing Soda

1/4 cup of baking Soda

3.5 l of hot water

1/4 cup of Thieves Laundry Soap

2 capfuls of Thieves Household cleaner

First, dissolve the washing soda and the baking soda in the hot water. Mix well. Then add the Thieves Laundry Soap and Thieves Household Cleaner and again moc well. Voila, your detergent is ready!

Cost breakdown

Washing soda 68¥, Baking Soda 15¥, Thieves Laundry Soap 588¥ and Thieves Household Cleaner is 104¥. Making this 775 per 3.5 l of detergent. It makes 27¥ per load if I use approx 1/4 cup of the mixture!!!

(Washing soda costs 990¥ per 726 g, Baking Soda is 1858 per 6 kg, Thieves Laundry Soap is 4455¥ per 946 ml, Thieves Household Cleaner is 3402¥ for 426 ml.

For The Love Of Salads

I love food, there is no doubt about it. I often wake up with something particular on my mind and I rush to the kitchen to make it.

That day I woke up wanting salad. But not just any salad. I knew I wanted cauliflower in it for the crunchiness and coriander avocado combo for the flavor. Hmmmm, what dressing? My eyes fell on some grapefruits and I knew what I’m gonna make!

So I grabbed all the ingredients (half an iceberg lettuce, cucumber, mixed salad leaves, coriander, avocado, few tomatoes and 1/4 cauliflower and just chopped it all

Putting everything in a bowl and setting aside, I got on making the dressing

In a separate bowl I mashed together slice of red and white grapefruit and few cubes of pineapple with spoon of olive oil.

I mashed it really well to get as much juice out of it as possible, then added 1 drop of Young Living Black Pepper Essential oil and 2 drops of Young Living Lime Essential Oil.

I love adding Essential oils to my food. They taste great and give my food extra layer of flavors. I could have used Grapefruit Essential oil instead of the fruit but I wanted the juice as well, not just the flavor, so this time I opted using the fruit. Also, I bought precut fruit bowl and I wanted to use it up.

Adding Essential Oils to food has many benefits, it has amazing flavor but also benefits our digestion. I love the flavor of Black Pepper Essential oil. It’s my go to for most of my dressings.

After mixing it really well together, I added some salt and poured it over the salad, tossing all together.

And then I just sat in my garden and enjoyed the beautiful weather and delicious salad. Oh yum!

It’s Lip Balm Time Of The Year

With fall comes the crisp air, wind and cracked, dry lips. We all love having soft lips though, right? So we run to first drugstore to buy lip balm. Some are better than others but the best is the one you make yourself. Why?

Many store bought lip balms contain irritants and basically the more we put on, the less luscious our lips feel. Some of these ingredients can also cause inflammation and dehydration of the lips. We definitely do not want that.

So best to make it yourself so you know what you put in. For added flavor and benefits, I add Essential oils. For my newest batch of lip balms, I used Spearmint Essential oil. I love the smell, the taste and how it naturally plumps the lips. Before, I used Orange and Frankincense, both were yummy. It is really up to you what oil you use.

I use beeswax in my recipe so I am well aware it is not vegan, I would love to hear your tried vegan recipe too! Please do share with me.

Here is my recipe

Ingredients

1.5 tbsp of Beeswax

2 tbsp of organic coconut oil

2 tbsp of coconut butter

15 drops of Spearmint Essential oil

This will make about 9 or 10 lip balms.

Method

First of all, prepare your lip balm containers next to your stove. On a double boiler, start melting the beeswax.

It takes the longest. Once almost melted, add the coconut oil and cocoa butter and melt completely.

Remove from heat and quickly add the essential oils, mix together and pour into the containers. You really need to act quickly as the lip balms start to set.

I like using glass measure cup in the double boiler, because it’s easy to pour from it. This is very simple, failproof recipe. Even my 9 yo son was able to make it by himself! So it gives you great activity with kids. They will love making their own lip balm and will be more willing to use it. Or gift it to family and friends!

You know I love using Young Living Essential oils only. I have my reasons why I only trust this company. If you would love e to learn more, you can get in touch with me through this page and I’ll be very happy to explain.

I would love to hear from you, how you love the lip balms and if you have any modifications to the recipe.

How to loose weight the healthy way – Part 3 Weight Loss and Weight Management

ON TO WEIGHT LOSS AND WEIGHT MANAGEMENT

The most challenging about weight loss for me is food management, proper diet and sticking up to it.

Breakfast is so important but also so challenging. I’m Czech and we love our bread. Any pastry for that matter and it’s my usual go to when it comes to breakfast. Yeah but bread is not actually all that good, especially when you’re trying to loose weight and you don’t have the options of Ezekiel’s bread on hands or don’t bake your gluten free bread yourself.

So as a part of my spring (yes, I’m calling my Cleanse Spring Cleanse even though it’s January and it’s cold here) Cleanse I drink Young Living’s Slique Shake for breakfast.

Young Living understands the need of healthy weight management and created SLIQUE Line and today I will introduce several of their products.

Slique Shake is a meal replacement product and I use it for my breakfast. I mix it with frozen banana or plantain, add shot of NingXia red, some ice and some oils of my liking, depending on my mood. It’s really filling. It’s packed in individual packages so it’s also easy to carry around with you.

Slique Shake is naturally sweetened with Stevia, organic coconut palm sugar, wolf berries and strawberries, also contains quinoa, pea protein, pumpkin seed protein and alfalfa grass juice, so it’s excellent source of dietary fiber, provides essential vitamins and minerals. And it’s delicious!!!

It’s very filling so carries me for several hours feeling full but light.

SLIQUE ESSENCE

Oh how I love this! Slique essence is a must have if you’re trying to loose weight but also if you’re just maintaining. Why?

Slique Essence Essential Oil may help to control sugar cravings and provide a sense of satiety (feelings of fullness). It also contains oils that have cleansing properties and is part of Young Living’s Healthy Weight Management Program.

Just place a few drops of this oil in water to promote cleansing of the body and support hunger control and feelings of fullness.

Slique Essence cleanses and purifies the body of emotions that no longer serve us by helping us digest what is “eating us”. It releases irritation and frustration that often comes up when we have been stuck and trying to break through to the next level. This oil has a way of pulling us through that while cleansing and uplifting the spirit.

It contains Ocotea, Tangerine, Lemon, Grapefruit and Spearmint and Stevia Leaf Extract. Citrusy oils are fantastic in weight loss regimen as they aid to burning fat. The spearmint gives it nice minty flavor, boosts metabolism and helps soothing digestion.

CITRASLIM 15 Dual packs.

Probably my favorite product from the Slique Line. It is really effective, at least in my experience. I could see the results on my waist line and that is my most stubborn area when it comes to fat.

Slique CitraSlim is formulated with naturally derived ingredients to promote healthy weight management when combined with a balanced diet and regular exercise.*

Slique CitraSlim also includes a proprietary citrus extract blend, which some studies suggest may help support the body in burning excess fat when used in conjunction with a healthy weight-management plan.

This polyphenolic mixture of avonoids offers powerful antioxidants that are touted for their health benefits. This proprietary blend may also support the release of free fatty acids, which help break down fat.

Contains sweet orange, blood orange, and grapefruit, four citral-dense essential oils: Ocotea, Cassia, Peppermint, and Fennel, cinnamon powder, bitter orange extract, feungreek seed, ocotea leaf extract, and a customized blend of enzymes.

WEIGHT LOSS PROTOCOL

One of the things I really swear by is this Weight loss protocol. I love it and do it once a year for two months. I make 15 ml bottle of this mix, use it up, take few days break and take one more bottle. My waist line loves it. So do my pants. Especially those I normally have hard time closing😜. It’s powerful.

You can either order all the oils and mix it yourself or pm me and I’ll mix it for you.

Healthy gut and healthy digestion are very important for maintaining healthy weight.

My all time favorite blend and my first aid oil for Digestive issues is Di-Gize.

I love this blend so much! I never leave the house without it. It works wonders. Just 1-2 drops in a capsule when I have issues, feel bloated or I’ve overdone it on the cheese and I feel better right away. When I don’t have my capsules, I just rub two drops over my belly. It’s amazing. It is a must have for any Essential oils lover.

It aid relieving constipation so if you have problems to go, this will be your savior too.

There is naturally much more tried ways to loose weight. All goes hand in hand with healthy diet and exercise. If you are interested in healthy food, visit my Facebook page Healthy Cooking Recipes Here

Want beautifully smelling laundry without the harmful chemicals?


We all want that beautifully smelling laundry. I mean we just want that soft, fluffy towels that smell like a morning dew or ocean breeze…

But did you know your store bought fabric softener is a full of toxins that easily enter your body through your skin? And that causes skin irritations and other skin problems. And that is just the beginning.

Most fabric softeners contain Chloroform! If inhaled, it is very dangerous and may cause many health issues including loss of consciousness, nausea,vomiting, drowsiness and might affect your heart, kidneys and liver.

Other harmful ingredients include Benzyl Alcohol, A-Terpineol, Ethanol, Benzyl Acetate, Pentane, Ethyl Acetate, Camphor, Linaloon or Phtalates. All these are very harmful substances that have serious impacts on our health and health of our families. Anytime you smell that Laundry smell, you are inhaling toxic chemicals.  Plus fabric softeners make fabrics less absorbent and that is not good for you anyways.

Is this what you want for your family? Or for yourself?

I doubt that. I believe most of you is like me. Conscious of what we use in our homes, on our bodies and on our clothes. Making your own fabric softener is super easy and does not take any time. You can pre make it in big  batch or make as you go. Or wash in this case.


I use Young Living’s Purification Essential oil for my laundry because it smells divine and does as the name suggests. Purifies all the smells. As you wash you laundry with it, your washing machine is also getting that beautiful smell. You gonna love it. I use 5 drops of Purification per load which comes to approx 50 cents (¥60 for those in Japan like me)

So what you need?

2 spoons of Epsom Salt

1 spoon of Baking Soda

5 drops of Essential oil of your choice
First mix it together in a cup then add 50 ml of warm water so the salt and baking soda will dissolve. Pour into your washing machine where you would normally put fabric softener. If you’re using dryer balls, simply drop few drops of Purification on your dryer balls.

Please remember, not all oils are created equally. I only use Young Living Essential oils because they are pure, organic and have Seed to Seal Guarantee. If you already taking the step toward chemical free home, make sure you do not use cheap oil that has been tainted or sprayed with pesticides. That would be like brushing your teeth and eating chocolate at the same time.
