Leading Laundry Detergent vs Young Living’s Thieves Laundry Soap

One of the frequent concerns is if I buy an all natural product it’s going to be more expensive. Cost is a legitimate concern of course, although when was the last time you priced Cancer treatments? Let me say this though without being as harsh. I am happy to see that a major company is at least making an effort to become more healthy. So, thank you ____ for trying.

Never the less, excluding health concerns with toxic ingredients that most stores bought laundry detergents have, let’s compare costs.

Young Living’s Thieves Laundry Detergent ingredients:

Water, Decyl glucoside, Sodium oleate, Glycerin, Caprylyl glucoside, Lauryl glucoside, Sodium chloride, Sodium gluconate, Carboxymethyl cellulose, Alpha-amylase, Protease, Lipase, Citrus Limon† (Jade lemon) peel oil, Citrus aurantium bergamia† (Bergamot) peel oil (Furocoumarin-free), Syzygium aromaticum† (Clove) bud oil, Citrus limon† (Lemon) peel oil, Cinnamomum zeylanicum† (Cinnamon) bark oil, Eucalyptus radiata† oil, Rosmarinus officinalis† (Rosemary) leaf oil

†100% pure, therapeutic-grade essential oil

So, the bottom line is, is .14 cents more per wash worth it to you and your family to have an all natural laundry detergent if you have a regular washer. You have to decide for yourself. If you have High-efficiency washer (He) then the cost per load is 1 cent cheaper in a regular washer or if you are buying wholesale it’s 9 cents cheaper per load.

Also, note that the PurClean Honey Lavender is scented. There is no real Lavender (or honey) in Tide’s product. If you love the smell of Lavender (and most people do including myself), why not add a few drops of pure Lavender Essential oil into a moist towel and throw it and your clothes in the dryer. You’ll get the benefit with no toxic fragrance needed.
