Note: Not all essential oil brands are the same, and you get what you pay for. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that you are using oils from pesticide-free plants. Also, the brand should use 100% pure, high-quality essential oils that do not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask a trusted friend to find a brand that is reputable. Buyer beware.

We have a pet turtle whose home is in an aquarium. She has water to swim in and rocks to climb on to sun herself under the light. The light must stay on at least 12 hours per day so her shell will not get soft. Algae grows quickly because the light is on so much and we must clean the tank every two weeks.

After reading that the Thieves Household Cleaner helps kill mold on the side of a house and it lasted longer than bleach cleaning, I decided to try it to clean the tank with it. Two weeks later we still had to clean the tank, but we started noticing her behavior was changing. She was eating better and not staying hidden behind rocks. She would swim toward us when we came into the room as if to ask for food. It was if she was feeling better. Then I remembered that turtles have a lot of bacteria and that is why we have to wash our hands everytime we handle her. So I figured she had been sick for a long time. The Thieves cleaner killed the bacteria in her tank and she was able to get well. It just simply amazes me how wonderful our products are and we probably have not even tapped the surface of what they can do.
