Usually, we get one or two mice each winter. This last winter we did not have one mouse in the house. Also, living in dry Texas, roaches come in. When we diffuse the oils, usually Thieves or Purification, the bug population is minimal. When we do find them; they're dead.

I opened the sheers to vacuum and found my window covered with winged ants. I tried using several oils, but none was as effective as Thieves. Outside, I found the hole they were coming from, put a few drops there; and they were GONE! I haven't had a problem since.
