What a day it is already! Laundry for days it seems. 3 kiddos and laundry gets piled up like crazy. Our 4 year old loves to change like every second, so what is dirty? I have no clue.
One thing I am so grateful for is Lavender essential oil. We began Young Living a few years ago but I never thought I’d be finding new ways of how to use the essential oils. I had seen wonderful changes that began with our family, from emotions, to focus during school, to wellness throughout all the seasons of the year to even cleaning our home!
While doing laundry sorting out what is dirty and clean (you know my 4 year old daughters clothing lot) I began seeing Jesus’ teaching. He was showing me a few things in my life that was “dirty” and needing sorting and removing. Doing laundry some stains come out while some stay. This is what Jesus was showing me, some hurts stayed in me while some left and allowed Jesus to heal those hurts. We can’t expect to help others when ourself isn’t completely fixed. We must allow Jesus to help us, fix us, renew us so we can help others. Cleaning the laundry sure can allow Jesus to speak into our lives. Sort the dirtiness in our lives, the ugliness, and the stains so we can allow Jesus to do what He needs to in us. Romans 12:2; 2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
I recently switched those dryer sheets and started using Wool Dryer Balls and oh my goodness I have no clue why I didn’t do this long ago. We have 3 wool dryer balls, the third one is somewhere in the pile ha! But all I did was add 4 drops to each dryer ball and add them in the dryers. When you open the dryer oh you can smell the beautiful scent of Lavender. It truly is a beautiful smell. No static, no muggy smell or no heavy perfume smell just pure natural plant based oil.
Gosh, our littlest one, who will be 1 very shortly, (where has the time gone) has sensitive skin so I have to be cautious with what to apply. As I began switching to Young Living’s Thieves Detergent and Lavender dryer wool balls I have seen a huge change in all of us. Our skin is great! No more itchiness.
Did you know lavender is a great oil for babies and even for fur babies? Our dog surely loves lavender baths. He sits there ready for his bath. His skin has improved as well.
You should definitely try this! Ditch the toxins and make the switch. 🙂
