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.

Last week my sister came home with a truckload full of very old antique, dusty, moldy furniture that was willed to our family. We left the antiques in the rental truck and my husband used an ozone machine to hopefully get rid of the mustiness and mold.

After 24 hours of the ozone machine running in the truck, we discovered that the mold was still there.

My sister called me and asked if the Thieves oil blend Cleaner was okay to use on antiques because they were out of options and numerous people in our family are allergic to mold.

I told her to dilute the Thieves extremely well, so she put a 1/2 capful, plus 6 cups of water in a spray bottle and clean all the furniture with it. We knew this was a risk using Thieves on antique furniture, but for us, this was a saving grace!

When I arrived to see the furniture pieces, I never detected any mustiness, dust or mold.

I was amazed and inspired.

3.Associated topics: allergic-reaction — "[T]he biological activity of 20 essential oils (EOs) from herbal plants and citrus fruits were investigated in terms of mammalian DNA polymerase (pol) inhibitory activity, cancer cell (human colon carcinoma) growth inhibitory activity, antiallergic activity... in rat basophilic leukemia cells, and antioxidant activity.... Among these EOs, chamomile... showed significant effects on both cancer cell growth and mast cell degranulation. On the basis of these results, chamomile EO can be recommended as a potentially useful, bioactive candidate for therapeutic applications."Link
