"When traveling, I always carry my Thieves® Spray. It fits easily into the required Ziploc bag for easy airport inspection of liquids/gels. Upon boarding, I immediately spray the air vent above my seat. When I sit down, I spray all the edges and the fastener on the tray table. These actions often prompt questions from other passengers and provide an opportunity to explain the great benefits of Young Living essential oils."

"I discovered that Thieves® Spray can be used as a spray for household plants. I used it on my palm in the bedroom because it's a bear to move outside and spray with toxic stuff. I kept it in place and tried Thieves. It smelled great and did the trick—no more toxic bug sprays on my plants!"

"I have two little kiddos and I know you need to dilute oils when using them on kids. Recently many of their friends were getting sick, so every day I sprayed Thieves® Spray on their chest and feet and rubbed it in a little. It didn't irritate their skin and they stayed well!"

"The mosquitoes come out more at dusk, so while working in my garden last evening I was severely bitten. My arms and ankles were covered in mosquito bites and were very itchy.

"We have had a lot of trouble keeping the enclosed garbage can smelling
clean. I have used everything, even bleach. I got my package of Thieves® and tried Thieves Spray in the garbage can and for the first time we
have not had that foul odor when you open it anymore! It's absolutely
amazing stuff and I don't have to spray it often either. That really

"I am allergic to bees and it seems that they are attracted to me for
some reason. When bees come around, I spray Thieves® Spray in the air
around me. I cannot believe how well it works. It doesn't kill the bees;
they just fly away from me. Thanks for this product!"

"My small container garden was being eaten alive by all manner of insects and snails at the beginning of last summer. I sprayed everything liberally with Thieves® Spray (on top and under leaves and around the
lip of the bin). I haven't seen another pest around there yet and it's April!"

" I love the Thieves line and use it for just about everything! Today while I was refilling the ink in our adding machine, I had a hard time getting the cartridge back in. The next thing I knew there was ink everywhere. My newly manicured nails and hands were black. It was on the adding machine as well as my husband's beautiful walnut desk. I immediately ran for the Thieves Spray that I use for all my household cleaning. I washed my hands, dried them with a paper towel, and used the paper towel to clean the adding machine and desk. Voila! Ink gone and everything was clean. Thank you Young Living!"

"To keep my house smelling fresh and free of unseen germs, I spray Thieves® Spray into the intake vent of our air conditioning system. I simply remove the main filter and spray several times into the intake duct, allowing the air to pull the spray into the entire ductwork system. Within seconds you can smell the Thieves all over the house. The air we are breathing is no doubt much healthier now!"

"I had some older Tupperware containers that were yellowing
and were sticky to the touch. I used my one-ounce bottle of Thieves Spray
and a nylon scrubber, followed by a hot water rinse, and my Tupperware
came out looking and feeling like new."

"I was visiting my sister out East this past summer
and she was having a bad problem with ants on her kitchen counters. They
were getting into everything no matter how good it was covered. For one
or two days, whenever I wiped the counters down I would also spray Thieves® Spray
on the counters. After that there were no more ants for the rest of my

it out and then fill it with Thieves Fresh Essence Plus Mouthwash. It
just takes a squirt or two from this easy-to-carry bottle any time you
need to freshen your breath throughout the day."

"My husband had not picked up his acoustic guitar
for more than three months, and the strings get sediment that builds
up from lack of use. He grabbed Thieves® Spray and sprayed a little
on the strings and it cleaned right up. The strings did not need to be
replaced and he was ready to play!"

"Many of us don't realize how the beater bar in our
vacuum cleaners pick up, carry, and spread germs; anything that comes
in the door on your shoes will end up in your carpets. When you run the
vacuum, you spread these germs everywhere and they find the environment
on your beater bar ideal to thrive. I spray my beater bar with Thieves® Spray
before and after each use. I also spray the floor of my closet where
I keep my shoes."

"I am a resource teacher in an elementary school and
have many students in and out of my roon every day. Especially during
the colder months, many of them have colds. I spray down my reading table,
chairs, pillows stuffed animals, and even book baskets with Thieves®
Spray a couple of times a day. I stay healthy and the room smells great!
One child said he likes my room because it smells like Christmas."

"Every time I change the linens on my bed, I spray
Thieves® Spray generously and evenly on the mattress and the pillows.
I feel that this leaves the bedding fresh smelling and free of those
tiny things we can't see. Sometimes I will also give the sheets and pillows
a quick spray when making the bed. This keeps my sleeping area fresh
between changing. I just love the smell of Thieves Spray!"

"I was given a beautiful antique piano, stained a dark walnut color,
that has had some stubborn white paint stain on the front of it for years
from someone squeezing and scraping it through a doorway. Thieves® Spray
removed almost all of the white stain almost instantly. One just has
to be careful not to let the Thieves penetrate too long, in order to
preserve the base color."
- LaVonne Barnell in Young Living e-News Sep 30,
used to suffer from dust mite allergies, especially during the winter
months when everything is sealed up to keep out the cold. Now when I
make my bed each week, I use Thieves®
Spray on my pillows and bed sheets, which helps with my allergic reactions.
I also spray the whole mattress when I strip the bed and mattress cover
each month. Because I have hot air heating, more dust is generated in
the winter months, and Thieves helps me control the situation."

“My two year old got a hold of a permanent marker and colored all
over my oak desk and my LCD flat panel TV screen. After trying the strongest
cleaning chemicals in my house, the markings didn't budge. In a panic,
I called our local hardware store to see if they had anything that would
get permanent marker out, and they recommended a product that was around
$14 a bottle. However, the worker said it is such a hazardous chemical
that it would probably ruin the LCD TV screen and eat the finish off my
desk. Because of its toxicity, I declined and went home. When I got home
I remembered my 1 oz. bottles of Thieves Spray. It dissolved the permanent
ink out of the desk and the LCD screen beautifully.* It looks like nothing
ever happened! Now that is what I call POWERFUL!”
