How Thieves Laundry Soap increases the frequency of your clothes and saves you money


In the past I’ve used a great natural laundry liquid, and simply added essential oils into each load of washing. My favourite oils to add have been either Purification or RC oil blends. Purification is great if clothes smell musty, which is quite common where I live due to our high rainfall. And RC is a blend of 3 different Eucalyptus oils and more, so it brings the fresh smells of the forest to your clothes. 

Why do I add oils in, and not just rely on the natural ingredients? It’s because of their frequency, which makes an enormous difference to the “feelings” I get when I wear these clothes. It’s that intangible, mysterious “something extra”, like a special sauce.

But now that Young Living has created the Thieves Laundry Soap, it already has an amazing frequency because of the Thieves oil in it. So not only is it more economical than my other supermarket brand, I’m also saving because I’m not needing to add extra essential oils into the wash. So I win both ways.

Thieves Laundry Soap – sooooooo economical!

This is one of the most economical Laundry Liquids you will come across, because it’s a super-concentrate. Simply use 1/4 cap (that’s 10ml, or 2 teaspoons*) of Thieves Laundry Soap concentrate in a full load of moderately-soiled washing.

One bottle does 95 loads of washing!!!!

That means a full load of washing will cost you only AU 52 cents a load, or EU 0.30, or US 31 cents. I checked online at to see how its price compares with a popular supermarket brand, and discovered that Dynamo Professional 7 in 1** works out at AU 67 cents a load.

But best of all, Thieves Laundry Soap is a plant-based formula which is 100% natural and safe for our planet.

Would it surprise you to know that most laundry detergents are not soap-based? They use synthetic chemicals made from petroleum (ie. petrochemicals) as their cleaning agent. Most have never been tested for safety. They also contain optical brighteners, which leave a chemical residue on your clothes. This reflects UV light, tricking your eyes into thinking your clothes are cleaner and brighter than they actually are. And many contain synthetic fragrances such as phthalates, which can create havoc with our hormones and our health.

Help to create a safer world, and save money at the same time. Choosing low-tox personal care and cleaning products like those available from Young Living empowers the health of your human and animal family, and is kind to our Planet.

Create your own Pre-Wash Stain Remover

Charly L writes: “In an empty roll-on bottle, add 50/50 Thieves Household Cleaner and Thieves Dish Soap. Both have degreasing properties. First, you want to wet the stain. I like to use Thieves All-Purpose Cleaner to do this, ie. 1 tablespoon of Thieves Household Cleaner in a 500ml spray bottle, and topped up with filtered water. Then just work the roll-on into the stain until it foams and lifts most of the stain. Then simply pop it into a regular wash with your Thieves Laundry Soap. Great results!”

Sharon L. writes: “The Thieves Cleansing Bar Soap works a treat on stubborn stains on my hubby’s golf shirts. I love how versatile the Thieves Range is, and my hands smell amazing afterwards!”

Would you like your Laundry Liquid to go even further?

Here’s how you can do this. Decant half a bottle of Thieves Laundry Soap into a glass jar, and store for later. Add 3 caps of Thieves Household Cleaner to the remaining laundry soap. Then add 15 drops of your favourite Young Living oil, such as Lemon, Lemongrass, Purification, Lavender or Citrus Fresh. Top it up with filtered or distilled water.

Then just pop the cap on, and slowly turn the bottle upside down to combine. Then just use 1/4 cap (10ml) of this mix in a lightly soiled load, or 1/2 cap (20ml) in a heavily soiled load. This works out at AU 28 cents for 10ml – it’s the best way to wash on a budget.

You can even use it on your car!!!

Alison S. writes: So my husband walks in the door…”Hey Al, check out my Combi – looks like new!” I’m like “What did you use?” He answers back, “The Thieves stuff in the laundry”, and I’m like, “The Thieves Cleaner, Laundry Soap or Foaming Hand Soap?”

It was the laundry soap, and he said, “Wow – the grease just washed straight off and all the crap from the road just slid off too! And there are no streaks, and the windows look amazing!”

So for all you girls out there who love your Young Living products, when your husband comes in raving about his new experiment it’s kind-of a turn on, right? So I say, “Honey, you better take me into that Combi and show me that shine!”
