Welcome to the Essential Oil Blog Hop!


Each participating blog has a different post on a number of topics, from how to use essential oils in general to actual uses and testimonials for the oils themselves. We hope that you will have some fun and learn a bit as well! If you are new to essential oils, you may want to start with some of these introductory posts:





And now for some information about Thieves Household Cleaner.





Information and Uses

The Thieves household cleaner contains all-natural ingredients formulated to distribute the power of therapeutic-grade essential oils in your home while killing germs and bacteria! Thieves as an essential oil blend has a 99.6% bacteria kill rate, and the Thieves cleaner is specifically made for all sorts of household cleaning. Why wouldn’t you want to clean with a product like that?

Not only is there a great, non-toxic cleaner that can be used in all sorts of dilutions for different cleaning surfaces, but there is an entire Thieves line of products, from toothpaste to mouthwash to hand sanitizer and even dental floss!



Here is the current Thieves product line:

  • Household cleaner
  • Spray
  • Wipes
  • Toothpaste (different varieties)
  • Foaming hand soap
  • Mouthwash (can be used for mouth infections such as gingivitis)
  • Lozenges
  • Hand purifier
  • Dental floss
  • Bar soap
  • Essential Oil



Along with the Thieves line, there are many other products that Young Living sells, such as beauty creams, natural energy drinks, and even pancake mix (among many others).



Things to Consider/Warnings

Thieves as an essential oil is considered a “hot oil,” and it should be used with caution, especially near eyes. The Thieves product line has been specifically formulated to be handled in each of the respective uses.



My Testimonial

When I was given the opportunity to try out Thieves from Young Living essential oils I didn't know what to expect. 

 
 
 
 
 
First of all I had never even heard of an essential oil called Thieves and was skeptical but also curious, so I gave it a try and decided to put it to the test on my oven.
 
Whenever you come over to my house you will see this:
 
 


Doesn't look bad from the outside....BUT when you open up the inside you see a completely different story!
 
 
 


There is baked on gunk that has accumulated over the years that is virtually impossible to remove.
 
In the past I would clean the oven with the strong hazardous oven cleaner that you find at your local retailer.
 
You know the one.....it requires you to wear gloves, open windows, and clear out the house.
 
I was always so leery about how hazardous these cleaners were that I avoided cleaning the oven too often and only did it once every couple  years. Yikes! (I know, I know).
 
So naturally when I was asked to try Thieves and found out all the wonderful things it could do like clean and sanitize, I jumped on it and knew I wanted to try it on the oven.



 
For starters, just spray it directly over the entire area.
 



 
Let it sit for a couple of minutes.....
 


 
 
Then I ran a sink of hot water and dipped my scrubby sponge into it and got to work....
 


 
 
Once the water hit the cleaner it suds up......
 



 
 
And was breaking down the stuck on greasy mess
right before my eyes......
 

 
 
 
So I wiped it down with a paper towel and sprayed it again for a second round.
 
 

 
 
I let the second round sit for a few minutes while I sprayed some of the Thieves onto the door of my dishwasher. (Another caked on mess in desperate need of attention).
 



 
 
There was dried spaghetti sauce, hard water deposits, and other gunk and grime that was caked on.
 

 
 
 
But with a few swipes with the paper towel it all lifted up and came clean.
 



 
I was making progress and moved back over to the oven. I wiped it down with a paper towel and voila!
 



 
 
I could see through the glass again and the light bounced off of it for the first time in at least two years!




 
 
And there she is. Squeaky clean!
 
 
There were no nasty fumes-the Thieves oil actually has a pleasant smell to it, and I didn't have to wear gloves!
 
It so nice to be able to tackle this project in 15 to 20 minutes and know that it was safe to use.
 
 
Here is the before and after:
