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.

Every spring we fight ant invasions in our kitchen. One tactic my husband uses is a countertop cleaner that has ammonia. Yuck! And the blue color even leaves residue on my white tile.

I've been with Young Living now for almost a year and slowly have purged old products, replacing them with safe alternatives from Young Living. One of these is the Thieves Household Cleaner.

Well, here they came again. I grabbed the bottle of Thieves Household Cleaner and gave a good spritz. Instantly the ants became motionless. Yes! No ammonia smell and no blue residue; and we've got dead ants!

They've tapered off today, and I wonder if the signature Thieves smell is keeping them away.
