5 Amazing uses of Thieves Spray


The Wonders of Thieves Spray

Like the Thieves Household Cleaner, Thieves Spray is based on Young Living’s very popular oil blend called “Thieves”, which was inspired by the “Four Thieves Vinegar” of medieval times.

Thieves oil is a wonderful blend of Clove, Lemon, Cinnamon Bark, Eucalyptus radiata and Rosemary oils. This spicy combination has become the basis for a whole line in the Young Living product range, comprising not only the household cleaner and spray, but also a range of toothpastes, foaming hand soap, bar soap, laundry soap, dish soap, dishwashing powder [which is not yet available in Australia], fruit and veggie wash, dental floss, mouth wash, waterless hand purifier…the list goes on!

It’s an all-natural petrochemical-free spray, perfect for purifying surfaces.

I personally love to use it on my hands when I’m out and about, after I’ve used a public restroom. Instead of cleaning my hands with the chemical-laden soaps provided in these places, I’ll either use Thieves Spray, or Thieves Waterless Hand Purifier.

I’ve also used Thieves Spray for a variety of other innovative uses. For example:

1. A Miracle Cleaner for Whiteboards

It’s the best thing ever for cleaning semi-permanent marks off whiteboards….far better than a whiteboard eraser.

2. Fortifying your Rose Bushes

When I lived in Victoria, every few months I’d use it to spray the leaves of my rose bushes in an award–winning garden that Noel and I had created. It kept the rose leaves clean and healthy, and free from any outdoor annoyances.

3. Natural Air Freshener

It will double as a natural air freshener, and can be kept in toilets and bathrooms for this purpose.

4. Purifying Airline Seats

If you’re an avid traveller like me, you’ll find Thieves Spray a fantastic thing to spray on the seats and arm rests of the plane, to purify them from the last passenger.

5. Removing Sticky Marks

It’s been great for removing sticky marks left on surfaces after a sticky label has been removed. And last week, I discovered another sticky substance, one I’d never had to face before….

I have 3 cats, and they love to smooch against the walls, especially near dinner time. Their salivary glands are working, and they mark their territory with this scented “drool”.

Over the past 9 months, this has resulted in some nasty looking marks over my walls.

It was time to clean them off, so I asked my cleaner to use Thieves Foaming Hand Soap, because that’s normally my “go to” product for gently removing marks off the wall. But because this particular mark was a sticky mess of kitty saliva, it just wouldn’t budge.

That’s when I decided to try Thieves Spray.

If it works on other sticky marks around the home, why wouldn’t it work on this?

So my cleaner did 3 sprays onto the wall, and wiped with a soft cloth. She was absolutely blown away by how effortlessly the marks came off the wall with the Thieves Spray.


No elbow grease required!

She’s already in LOVE with Thieves Household Cleaner, and is converting a lot of her friends and family over to it.

Now here’s another product that has quickly climbed to #1 on her Young Living wish list.

You’ve got to experience it to believe it! If you’re keen to try some, and not already a Young Living member, scroll down for details of how to order it for yourself.

IMPORTANT REMINDER: Use common sense when using any of the Thieves products on fabrics and walls, and do a spot test first.

You’re never too young or too old….

This is an email that I received from Letitia, which I want to share with you.

Letitia writes: Today my order arrived from Young Living. I have been a member for years and years, and I am now 92 years old.

Today’s package contained my 1.8 litre Thieves Household Cleaner, as well as Thieves Dentarome Ultra toothpaste, and Thyme and Thieves essential oils.

Then lo and behold, I open your email today and read the bulletin on the Thieves Household Cleaner!

Well…I can tell you that in all these years, I have never been without Thieves Household Cleaner.

My house is toxic-free as I am a chemical victim, however I’m also challenged by day-to-day exposures outside my home.


Today, I had to take a cab instead of driving myself. Cabs in particular can be toxic. The drivers’ use of perfumed air fresheners and deodorants, as well as the perfumes and deodorants of previous passengers, drift through the cab.

So I was faced with a dilemma….what to do?

To manage the long distance drive in the cab, I applied Thieves essential oil to tissues. Wherever I go, I always have a selection of oils with me.

Due to my age, I now have to employ cleaners in my home. At the start, they brought their own cleaning agents. STOP right there!!!! No thank you.

I only have to show them my Thieves Household Cleaner, and explain that no other cleaning solution is required.

At first they were sceptical – until they used it, and were intrigued by the smell….mmm, mmm what is it I can smell? One said, ‘Cinnamon?’ the other said, ‘Cloves?’ Lovely! No further introduction required.

After that, I have to say my cleaners were soon acknowledging its use in all the domestic jobs in my house.

Just this morning I happened to be in conservation with a young mother of a 2 year old daughter. They have a bad mould problem in their rented property, so I immediately took the opportunity to explain Thieves Household Cleaner, and its many uses (almost a hundred). It’s what I use on mould, and have found it to be very effective.

I continue to use the Young Living oils each day in my diffuser. Today it was ImmuPower oil blend.

The Thyme oil I use at bedtime, before I put the light out. I gently massage it under each big toe, particularly in the crease. Occasionally, I’ll add a drop of V6 vegetable oil. It always gives me a quiet night’s sleep.

Now in my 93rd year, I can only thank Young Living for assisting me to continue to cope with my life, physically and emotionally, by the use of their products and the benefits received, together with all your advice along the way, Artemis.

If I can inspire anyone of the pleasures and benefits I have received over the years by using the Young Living products, and particularly through the wisdom and foresight of your late beloved founder Gary Young continuing to this day, then I am indeed privileged. These comments come from my heart Artemis. Thank you again for all your advice and suggestions over all these years, Artemis. I wish you success and good health.
