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.

Excessive late afternoon and evening rain, as well as improper watering in the afternoon, can cause strawberries to contract a fungus known as gray mold. Upon doing a little research about gray mold and strawberries, I found that the remedy is a fungicide.

Looking through my essential oil collection, I decided to use Thieves Household Cleaner to spray the strawberry plants. Voila! The next day my gray and mummified strawberries have virtually disappeared, and red ones are beginning to reappear.

I used just half a capful of Thieves Household Cleaner diluted with filtered water to fill a 16-ounce spray bottle. And only about four squirts over a 4 x 4 square garden of strawberry plants did the trick.
