Our skin is our biggest organ and is capable of absorbing a surprisingly large amount of what we put on it. Let us give you all the information you need to know about Thieves Essential Oil Blend and the 12 ways to use Thieves for a naturally healthier home.
Many regular cleaning supplies or household products can irritate our bodies, cause headaches, produce allergic reactions, and other health problems, including cancer! Some products release dangerous chemicals, including volatile organic compounds. These are gases that are emitted into the air from products or processes. They can be harmful on their own and can react with other gases to pollute the air your family breathes.
Other harmful ingredients include ammonia and bleach. Even products which are “green” or with “natural based” fragrances (most commonly citrus) can react to produce dangerous chemical blends and vapours in your home.
Why use natural cleaners?
Using natural plant-based products is one of the best ways to prevent exposure to the toxic chemicals found in many cosmetics and household products. It is so important to read ingredients and to gain an understanding of what we are putting on our skin, in our homes and ultimately back into the environment.
Nature has provided such an amazing array of ingredients that are gentle yet powerfully effective and work on multiple levels. Certain plant-based ingredients like essential oils not only help with skin care but have positive effects on mood and state of mind. Here at Nezza Naturals, our guarantee is to use only high-quality, plant-based ingredients, usually, at high concentration for the best results.
The first step to a healthier body and environment is understanding which toxic chemicals are commonly found in cosmetics and household products so that they can be avoided. Part of our commitment to our customers is to share this valuable information and help consumers make informed choices about the products they use.

12 Easy Ways To Use Thieves Essential Oil Blend For A Healthier Home
1. Diffuser Blend
Add 3-5 drops of Thieves essential oil to your diffuser. This warm inviting scent will freshen the air as well as protect your home from airborne pathogens.
2. Shower Steam
Place 2-3 drops of the essential oil onto a hot washcloth. Keep with you in the shower away from the direct stream of water. The steam from the warm shower will disperse the aroma and healing properties into the air for you to enjoy.
3. Room and Fabric Spray
In a 2 oz spray bottle, add 15 drops of Thieves essential oil blend. Fill the bottle halfway with Witch Hazel and top up the rest with distilled water. Shake to combine. Spritz upwards into the centre of the room or over top of soft coverings and bedspreads. Not too close! This is a misting.
4. Multi-surface Multi-purpose
Naturally disinfect surfaces for a great clean. Just add 5-10 drops of Thieves essential oil to a small spray bottle and fill with water. Spray on, wipe down. It’s that easy to clean safely and effectively.
For sinks, grease, and tougher grime, mix 6-8 drops with baking soda. Scrub, rinse, and wipe the area dry. Works especially well on bathtubs, wash basins and tile flooring for a deep clean that leaves a sparkle.
Use to dissolve the gummy adhesive left on items from price labels. Apply ‘neat’ and wipe away.
Add a few drops to your laundry cycle for cleaner, fresher smelling clothes. You can also add to your washing machine self-clean cycle to disinfect and get rid of the damp smell.
