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 mixed up about 1 oz of Thieves Cleaner in a 16oz bottle of filtered water and have been using it to kill small ants in my kitchen for weeks. (If I diffuse Thieves they stay away).

I found a wasp nest in my birdfeeder and sprayed it before I opened it. The wasps staggered out like they were drunk...they couldn't fly! It gave me time to safely step on them.

Tonight I found a huge roach that was hiding in the corner...we're in a serious drought and have had high temperatures for over a month here in Texas. I guess they're searching for water. Normally they run like lightening when you try to swat them.

I ran to the kitchen for my bottle of Thieves mixture & sprayed it really good. It was immediately paralyzed and I was able to safely squash with my shoe & dispose of it with a large paper towel. I then wet a clean towel with the mixture to clean the bottom of my shoe and the area where the bug was smashed. I LOVE Thieves!
