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 love the Thieves Kit, it comes with all the Thieves goods. I made up a batch of the Thieves cleaner, 1 capful Thieves concentrate to 15 oz water in a spray bottle. We have problems with ants of all sizes coming into our home, one spray of this cleaner and within 15 seconds an ant was dead.

The insects become confused, then they are dead within seconds. We had some flies rush into our kitchen the other day and I grabbed the spray, spritzed the fly and it fell over.

Last night I found a small roach in a cup and I used a squirt of the Thieves foam hand soap and as I put the soap back on the counter and looked into the cup, the roach was flipped upside down and no legs were even wiggling, so maybe 10 seconds and the roach was dead.

We don't have a bad roach problem, but this summer we had a few that came through the cracks and also found a few behind the fridge.

We set a glue trap behind it because they come in looking for water. I am trying to figure out how to make a Thieves barrier. I was reading that Lemon oil and Peppermint oil help to kill ants, but it didn't do anything about these ants.

So Thieves products are the winner for me!
