Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.

My husband and I live in a fifth wheel (trailer). It is a 1996 model, so inevitably it has cracks and leaks. We had not had a problem with mold all during the first summer and through the winter here in East Texas.

However, when spring hit, I found green mold on several of my shoes one day, and it only got worse from there. I had heard of awesome results for ridding rooms or entire homes of mold with Thieves essential oil blend and thought that we could at least try it.

Fortunately I had just purchased my Premium Starter Kit and some other essential oils (including an extra bottle of Thieves, of course) that week! Also, my sister, who has been using therapeutic-grade essential oils for a few years now, had given me a bottle of Thieves Household Cleaner for our wedding over a year before, and that was the only cleaner I had on hand.

So I sprayed the Thieves Household Cleaner all over everything in my closet, including shoes, belts, the walls, shoe board, and a couple clothing items the mold had gotten to. I let it sit for a bit to kill the mold, sprayed everything again, and wiped it clean.

I also sprayed Thieves Household Cleaner all over our shower, where I found black mold! I knew the mold must still be in the air, so I unboxed my handy-dandy new diffuser and diffused Thieves essential oil blend all day for several days, moving it around the house.

My husband caulked up the cracks in our closet walls, and I placed a couple dehumidifier bags in there (which still fill up within a month). Now we leave our closet doors open so that the air does not get stale, and I spray and/or diffuse Thieves essential oil blend in the closet and throughout the house periodically (especially when it rains).

Additionally, I use the Thieves Household Cleaner in my sinks, shower, and bathroom (which I had not thought to do before finding the mold). I also spray it in my closet every now and then, just for good measure.

We have not seen the likes of any mold ever since! And as a bonus (which I had hoped for), the pesky spiders and other creeping things that had been biting or pestering us are gone too!

Thank you, God, for creating the herbs and giving us the wisdom to use them for Your glory and our good! And I am thankful that this company masterfully puts them into bottles! And in this case, one bottle... Thieves!
