What is Thieves®?

The Black Plague and the Secret of Thieves

As the bubonic plague decimated Europe in the year 1413, four thieves were captured and charged with robbing the dead and dying victims. When the thieves were tried, the magistrate offered leniency if they would reveal how they resisted contracting the infection as they performed their gruesome acts.Thieves-Oil-2013

The four thieves explained that they were perfumers and spice traders and told of a special concoction of aromatic herbs, including cloves and rosemary, that they rubbed on their hands, ears, and temples.

The proprietary Thieves essential oil blend was created based on research of the concoction used by the thieves of the 15th century. In 1997, studies conducted at Weber State University showed the Thieves essential oil blend to have a 99.96% success rate against airborne germ organisms. The bacteria cultures were sprayed in an enclosed area, and Thieves oil blend was diffused for a given amount of time (this can be duplicated in the home using a cool-air diffuser or TheraPro Diffuser).

I absolutely LOVE Thieves® Household Cleaner!Thieves Household Cleaner

I have never used any product that even comes close to working as well. I’ve always been into natural solutions for everything. However, I’ve always been very disappointed with their ability to perform.

I use the Thieves Household Cleaner in place of: all laundry detergents, bleach, dish washer detergents, spot/stain/grease removers, carpet shampoo, tub/tile/toilet cleaners, oven cleaner, floor cleaner, glass/mirror cleaners, cleaning moss off my porch and much more! Plus, I have more room in my cabinets and save a lot of money too!

For example: I use about 1 capful (tablespoon) of the Thieves Household Cleaner to do a load of laundry and that’s it (I don’t use anything else, I don’t need to). All of the Thieves products are staples in my household. The thing I like most about them is that they are completely nontoxic, they won’t pollute you, your kids and pets or the environment! ~ Evelyn

How much does it cost to use Thieves® Household Cleaner?

  • For “regular” degreasing Thieves Cleaner costs 64 cents per quart (32 oz.) when added to water as directed.
  • For “heavy” degreasing Thieves Cleaner costs $1.27 per quart when added to water as directed.

Other cleaners using 22 oz. bottles as an example:

  • Formula 409 costs $3.29
  • Lysol Disinfectant costs $2.89
  • All-natural brands of cleaners are generally considerably more costly

 Edible, Effective, Fluoride-free Toothpaste!

Thieves-Toothpaste-Dental-3The Thieves dental care products work better than anything that I’ve ever seen on the market. I like that I save a small fortune on dental cleaning bills by using them too! Read more about why Thieves Ultra toothpaste and mouthwash are so effective.

The Thieves Ultra Toothpaste is a formula of edible, all-natural ingredients that gently clean and whiten teeth, freshen breath while harnessing the powerful action of pure essential oils for protection against gunk that builds up on our teeth and the nasties that cause us to have more trips than necessary to the dentist office.

Used in conjunction with the Thieves Mouthwash this pair is an awesome way to obtain squeaky clean teeth and benefits far outweighing any other toothpaste and mouthwash I’ve ever tried.

Thieves® Foaming Hand Soap

Liquid hand soaps are popular these days, particularly those with antibacterial properties. However, most of them contain harmful chemicals and fragrances, leaving many searching for a natural, safe alternative. Not to mention the fact that using chemical antibacterial soaps are the cause of super-germs (bacteria that has become resistant).

The Benefits of Using Thieves® Foaming Hand Soap

Thieves essential oil blend penetrates deep beneath the skin’s surface, providing a long-lasting barrier of protection. This gentle foaming hand soap also contains: vitamin E, aloe vera, and Ginkgo biloba to moisturize and soften the skin.

I use the Thieves Foaming Hand Soap in the shower – boy, does it make me feel squeaky clean!

  • The essential oils in Thieves Foaming Hand Soap penetrate deep into the skin to act as a protective barrier long after you wash your hands
  • Thieves Foaming Hand Soap is pH balanced, which reduces the disruption of the skin’s natural moisture complex and leaves important lipids in place to maintain a proper moisture balance in the skin
  • Vitamin E, aloe vera, and Gingko biloba are added to condition and protect the skin
  • Thieves Foaming Hand Soap can be used by children and adults, including those with sensitive skin, for natural and effective cleansing
  • Thieves Foaming Hand Soap’s primary surfactant, decyl glucoside, is derived from corn sugars and sugar beets, and is often used in products for sensitive skin

  1. Do you sell the products wholesale. I own and opeate a home fragrance store in Calgary, Alberta. Would be interested in the travel diffusers.
    Thank You

    Hi Sandy,

    Yes, I sell all of the Young Living products wholesale. The wholesale price is 24% lower than retail. When you have products delivered monthly (a minimum of $50 worth wholesale) the is additional savings – I can tell you about that if you’re interested.

    To buy at wholesale you need to choose the “Distributor” membership type and select one of the 5 Start Living kits (which have product and business materials), they range in price from $40 to $300 US (choosing any one of those 5 will give you wholesale pricing, see them here). After that is done you can buy any of the products at wholesale whenever you want and as much as you want.

    Getting started can be done via phone (I can call you) or online at my website,

    Please contact me if I can assist further. ~ Evelyn

  2. I am most interested in finding out more about Young Life and your essential oils. Thanks for introducing yourself to me on Facebook. As I begin to switch out many cleaning supplies for ones less toxic, I am wondering what you use for laundry soap — I did not see this mentioned here. I do use an eco-friendly laundry soap that is pretty good, but am wondering if there is something I can make myself. Any suggestions on this? Thanks for your site. I will be in touch! — Priscilla

    • Hi Priscilla,

      You’re welcome, it’s nice meeting you through FaceBook, glad to hear you’re enjoying my site too (I love sharing information).

      It’s “Young Living” essential oils for clarification.

      I don’t use laundry detergents at all, not even a speck. Instead I use the Thieves Household Cleaner in place of any and all laundry products. I use ‘one’ teaspoon per load of laundry – I put it in the laundry dispenser of my washer, and that’s it.

      There are 3 things I like most about using the Thieves Cleaner in place of laundry detergents, they are: 1) there’s no soap in the Thieves cleaner, which means there is no soap residue left on my clothing, 2) I never have to buy any other laundry products at all, and 3) the Thieves cleaner smells amazing (especially when you hang laundry on a clothes line to dry) and is far more effective than any natural detergent I’ve ever used. Oh, and you will never have to use fabric softener or dryer sheets again!

      I’ve been using Thieves Household Cleaner in place of all laundry detergents and products for close to 10 years now. I enjoy using it so much that I will never switch back to other laundry products again. The Thieves Household Cleaner has literally replaced every type of cleaner in my house, it’s all purpose and dilution ratios are on the label – it’s a very impressive cleaner.

      Let me know if you have further questions and thanks for stopping by my site. ~ Evelyn

  3. do you have detergent for clothes?

    Hi Lee,
    We have and use the Thieves Household Cleaner (it’s all-purpose and cleans really well) in place of laundry detergent. I use 1 capful per load, that’s it! ~ Evelyn
