Fruit and Veggie Soak

Let’s be honest, here. When we buy produce from the store, do you wash it before using it? If so, how do you know you’re washing it in the best way you can?

Freshly bought produce (yes, even organic), is FILTHY. It may not look like it, but oh my – it needs a serious bath. Between the many hands of others that have touched it, to people breathing and coughing and sneezing on it, to being sprayed for preservation on the farms and in the warehouses, to being loaded and packed and shipped and coming in contact with all kinds of other invisible culprits, I’ll say it again – our store bought produce is filthy.  The most contaminated fruits and vegetables are some of our favorites – peaches, strawberries, pears, lettuce, apples, cherries, bell peppers, spinach, nectarines, grapes, celery, and potatoes!

I bet that’ll make you think twice before you just do a quick rinse and take a bite out of your new apple, huh? 

Look how dirty my water is after washing strawberries!


Young Living’s Fruit & Veggie Spray safely and effectively washes produce with the cleansing power of three exclusive essential oil blends—DiGize, Thieves, and Purification. When combined with the other naturally derived ingredients, produce is easily and conveniently cleaned.

Water, Decyl glucoside, Glycerin, Citric acid, Sodium citrate, Artemisia dracunculus† (Tarragon) oil, Zingiber officinale† (Ginger) root oil, Mentha piperita† (Peppermint) oil, Juniperus osteosperma† oil, Foeniculum vulgare† (Fennel) oil, Cymbopogon flexuosus† (Lemongrass) oil, Syzygium aromaticum† (Clove) bud oil, Rosmarinus officinalis† (Rosemary) leaf oil, Cymbopogon nardus†(Citronella) oil, Pimpinella anisum† (Anise) seed oil, Citrus limon† (Lemon) peel oil, Pogostemon cablin† (Patchouli) oil, Cinnamomum zeylanicum† (Cinnamon) bark oil, Melaleuca alternifolia† (Tea tree) leaf oil, Lavandula hybrida† (Lavandin) oil, Eucalyptus radiata† oil, Myrtus communis† (Tunisian Myrtle) oil, Myrtus communis† (Moroccan Myrtle) oil
†100% pure, therapeutic-grade essential oil

Thieves for the win!


Considering all the horrific things that may be atop our produce that are grossing us out big time, wouldn’t you want to wash that off with the purest, most natural, healthy, safe, and effective product – especially one infused with powerful essential oils? YES. And that is exactly what this wash can do, and so much more. It is the best choice for you because it:-Utilizes plant based ingredients 
-Cleanses produce back to the way nature intended them to be 
-Naturally removes residue safely and powerfully with the help of concentrated and genuine essential oils
-Does not effect the taste of produce after soaking
…and so much more!


When using Thieves Fruit & Veggie Soak, it’s simple! 

-Get a clean bowl or sink, and fill it up with clean water
-Add 1-2 capfuls of Thieves Fruit & Veggie Wash, and pour into the water (depending on how much produce you’re washing, the bottle will specify how much you should use)
-Put your fruits and veggies into the water
-Let them soak for 1-2 minutes (I let them soak for longer sometimes)
-Take them out and rinse under clean water
And, WHALLA! Perfectly clean produce, with no more residue, and without effecting the taste. 

All Clean!

Wood Furniture Cleaning Recipe

Last week I came across a wood furniture cleaning recipe using olive oil and Young Living Thieves cleaner. I decided to test it out yesterday on my dining room table and chairs. Look how amazing it turned out!


Guys this set is 14 years old. Years of grime and abuse washed away and the cleaning mix left a beautiful shine to the wood 😍

Wood Furniture Cleaning Recipe

  • 5 drops Citrus Fresh Oil
  • 1 capful Thieves Cleaner
  • 1 cup Olive Oil

Combine in a bowl. Wet a rag and then dip into cleaning solution. Wipe your furniture down.

I also use the Thieves Cleaner to clean my granite, stainless steel, windows and mirrors!  It is concentrated so literally you only use a capful at a time.  Here is my favorite all purpose spray recipe:

Windows & Glass Spray
This makes a big batch. More than 16 oz. Halve it for smaller containers.  Also use glass containers as Citrus oils can degrade plastic over time.

  • 1 capful thieves cleaner
  • 5 Drops Lemon or Citrus Fresh Oil
  • 1 tsp. Vinegar
  • 3 cups water

Thieves Household Cleaner is a natural cleaner that utilizes the intense power of Thieves combined with lemon essential oils, renewable plant and mineral sources, and vegetable-based surfactants.
