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.

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 with 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 Thieves oil (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. Over about six weeks 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.
