DIY Thieves Spray for On-The-Go, All-Natural Cleaning

January 12, 2016·

One of the MUST HAVE items I carry with me in my purse is Thieves spray. Thieves essential oil blend is one of the key ingredients in a BUNCH of Young Living’s natural cleaning products (including my favorite Thieves household cleaner!) And, since it’s such a great all-natural cleaner in and of itself… it lends itself to being a GREAT ingredient in a spray!

I use Thieves in so many of my DIY products – my hand soap, dish soap, etc. Young Living actually makes and sells their own Thieves spray, but I also LOVE to make my own – because, well, it’s SO EASY to make.

This is seriously such a great thing to throw in your purse, diaper bag, backpack, etc. and have with you when you’re out and about. It has so many uses!

What I use Thieves spray for:

  • Cleaning hands on-the-go
  • Spray shopping carts (shopping carts always gross me out)
  • Cleaning toys (especially ones that lots of kids with all the runny noses have touched :))
  • I love to spray it on the bottoms of Lilly’s feet before and after she plays at an indoor play place (where she refuses to play with socks on)
  • Cleaning airplane seats / armrests / tray tables
  • Spraying on fruits and vegetables on the go (just spray, rinse, and you’re good to go!)
  • Spraying toilet seats in public restrooms (YUCK!!)
  • Freshen your gym bag and stinky shoes
  • Spray on restaurant booster seats and high chairs
  • Spray on restaurant tables to naturally clean the surface
  • and more!

I realize there are a million (exaggeration) DIY recipes for this around the internet, but I figured I would at least share mine with y’all!

All about Thieves Essential Oil Blend:

Thieves® essential oil blend was inspired by the legend of four 15th-century French thieves who formulated a special aromatic combination composed of clove, rosemary, and other botanicals they used while robbing the dead and dying. Young Living’s one-of-a-kind Thieves blend, crafted in the spirit of that legendary combination, can be found in all of our Thieves products. When taken internally, Thieves supports healthy immune function*, and it includes Eucalyptus radiata essential oil, which may help maintain a healthy respiratory system.* When taken as a dietary supplement, Thieves is an ideal complement to a daily wellness regimen.* (source)

Directions:

In your spray bottle, fill it mostly with water, then add in your pinch of sea salt, a dash of witch hazel, and 15 drops of Thieves essential oil blend. Give the bottle a good shake and… boom! You’re good to go!

What about you? Have you ever made your own Thieves spray? If so, how do you love to use it?
