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.

After receiving my order I decided to get some bottles made up and mark each according to parts for use.

Loving the smell, I walked through the house just squirting away, on the carpet, curtains, couches and around the bathroom that I was planning on scrubbing down with the new cleaner. My daughter was outside doing some chores, when the screaming started, I ran fast.

When I opened the door, there was dead bugs laying everywhere. I helped her in and could not figure out why all the bugs? When we reached the living room area there where more bugs!

Some dead and some moving slow. I reached for the spray bottle and headed for the bedroom. I have white carpet in there and when I started to spray we could actually see little bugs coming up out of the carpet.

I got on the phone and called my oldest daughter and she thought I had gone nuts-- she came to check on me, and now she was seeing this too. I am not the white glove housekeeper, but a clean house I do keep. I could not believe this was happening. I got the rug shampooer going and every room got the Thieves cleaner treatment and it was unbelievable.

My daughter did her whole house and scrubbed the kitchen floor, one hour later there where 4 large bugs that had crawled out of no where and died as they watched. Her husband being native to Arizona had never even seen the this type of insect before.

I spray around my doors and windows at night and find many dead in the morning. I find it does not kill flies though. Today I am going to try a few more things, I will let you know how it goes.
