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.

We have a most beautiful Silver Princess flowering gum tree in our front yard.

Six months ago a deep wound developed (canker) on the trunk exposing the wood. Beneath it was a small hole (little finger size) through to the heartwood inside, with all sorts of insects and beetles trafficking in and out. The tree looked sick, grey, lifeless and we thought it was dying.

We squirted diluted the Thieves oil blend (1:3) with a syringe into this hole as an antiseptic and crossed our fingers. Well, insects and beetles packed their bags post haste and have never been seen again.

About six weeks later the tree started to look a little better with a few new leaves appearing on the extremities of the rope like branches.

Another two weeks saw new shoots coming from the trunk at ground level. Some small ants are travelling on the tree again, but still no insects in the wound area.

We believe the application of Thieves saved this beautiful tree.
