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.

I just love this stuff. I used it the 1st time to gently get acrylic paint easily off the side of my sons face, full strength on a cotton ball. Then I used it to soak our wedding rings so they looked brand new again and it also took off the caked on cement on my husband's ring.

There have also been a number of postings concerning what oils to use in a swimming pool. Let me tell you my awesome experience. My husband shock treated our pool, we have well water that has turned black as it has every time in the past.

So we decided to never do this again thinking that well water does not need to have whatever the shock treatment is to destroy bacteria. Anyhow this left a large dark ring around the top part of the pool. I got tired of looking at this and got my Thieves cleaner and a sponge and with little to no scrubbing the ring was gone and looks like new.

I just used a few drops full strength on the sponge a few times, since the water would get into my sponge and wash it away into the pool water. After cleaning a 21x4 pool, it smelled so nicely of Thieves. I thought I want to use this in the pool instead of the chemicals but wondered what the ratio should be.

I added 2 more capfuls into the pool. Me and my 2 sons swam for a bit and the pool still smelled of Thieves and when we got out our skin felt smooth and not wrinkly as usual.

The very most I could have used in the pool was 1/8 of a cup for a 10,000+ gallon pool. I am so not educated in this pool care, all I know is what we experienced. Someone more educated could maybe figure out for the rest of us what the ratio is to keep pool water clean and balance the pH.

I just had to share this information. I was thinking maybe a bottle per month would be used for disinfecting the pool. I'd love it if others would experiment as well and let the rest of us know what type of results you have.
