Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.

I grow wheatgrass in my kitchen window in order to juice it for my family. The first tray I grew had so much mold growing in it that I didn't know if I could juice it. I put an air-purifier in the window with the next batch, didn't plant the seeds so thick, and thought it couldn't hurt to lightly spray the sprouting seeds with the (very diluted) Thieves Houselhold Cleaner to see if it would help keep the mold down. IT DID! Every time I did the dishes, I checked between the blades of grass and if mold was growing up I lightly sprayed that spot. After growing full height, the mold was still there, but on the soil, not the grass, so I was able to cut nice long strands, rinse, and juice.
