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 recently had cut some flowers out of my garden and put them in a clear glass vase to enjoy for a few days. I know from previous experience that when I water my house plants, I add 1 capful of Thieves Household Cleaner to the water. The plants grow better and I can be confident that I'm warding off bugs and harmful bacteria that attack plants.

So just to see what would happen for my cut flowers, I filled the vase with lukewarm water and added only 1 drop of the Thieves oil blend to the water. I left the flowers alone and went out of town for about a week.

When I came home, I was amazed to see that the water was still crystal clear and not at all scummy like flower water tends to get. The flowers were of course dead by then, but it was good to know that I didn't have to scrub out the vase.
