Thieves Oil Uses for Mould Mildew

1. Mould & Mildew

Bathrooms are a breading ground for mould and mildew with the damp, warm and humid conditions. Sometimes you can see the mould, sometimes you can't see the mould, as it lurks in the air and can be hidden behind walls.

Mould isn't just unsightly, it's linked to a host of health problem. Allergic reactions are the most common health effects of mould. Mould allergy symptoms include wheezing, sneezing, respiratory problems, runny nose, itching eyes and coughing.

According to the CDC Center for Disease Control and Prevention "Excessive exposure to mould-contaminated materials can cause adverse health effects in susceptible persons regardless of the type of mould or the extent of contamination."[2] When mold spores are present in abnormally high quantities, they can present especially hazardous health risks to humans, including allergic reactions or poisoning by mycotoxins,[3] or causing fungal infection (mycosis)" [1]

  • Diffusing Thieves oil in the bathroom can help with combating mould and mildew.

  • Diffusing Thieves oil acts against airborne mould.

  • Diffusing Thieves oil discourages and can help to prevent new mould growth.

  • Diffusing Thieves oil can penetrate into wall surfaces to help with combating hidden mould behind walls.

Thieves Oil Uses in the Bathroom

2. Bathroom Sanitiser

The bathroom might look clean, though most bathroom surfaces are riddled with all sorts of germs and bacteria. That's why it's so important to sanitise bathroom basins, bathroom surfaces, shower stalls and toilet seats using Thieves Oil.

Add Thieves oil to a water spray bottle. Spritz bathroom surfaces and wipe clean with a cloth.

Thieves Oil Use in Toilet Spray

3. Toilet Air Freshener

Could the floral scent of your air freshener contain toxic chemicals known to cause birth defects? The Natural Resources Defense Council recently tested 14 air fresheners and found that 12 contained phthalates, chemicals that can cause hormonal abnormalities, birth defects and reproductive problems. Even air fresheners marketed as "all-natural" or "unscented" contained the hazardous chemicals.

So what to do to combat 'toilet stink'?

Add Thieves oil to a water spray bottle and spritz away. Not only does Thieves oil smell awesome, it's safe, non-toxic and chemical free! Plus, with Thieves oil you have the added bonus that it helps to combat airborne bacteria.

Thieves Oil in for Toothbrush

4. Clean Toothbrushes

What's lurking on your toothbrush? You probably don't want to know!

According to Charles Gerba, PhD, a professor of microbiology at University of Arizona in Tucson, flushing the toilet with the lid up is not wise. "Polluted water vapor erupts out of the flushing toilet bowl and it can take several hours for these particles to finally settle -- not to mention where," he says. "If you have your toothbrush too close to the toilet, you are brushing your teeth with what's in your toilet."

Combat whatever might be lurking on your toothbrush by adding a drop of Thieves oil to the toothbrush each time before you clean your teeth.

Thieves Oil for bathtub scrub

5. Bathtub Scrub

There's more bacteria in the bathtub than in garbage bins according to a recent study. Of all household areas, the bathtub has 119,468 bacteria per square inch! The bathtub is the 4th grimiest surface for bacteria, only beaten by the toilet bowl, kitchen sink and sponge/surface clothes. [5]

Combat grime in the bathtub by adding Thieves oil to your bathtub scrub.

Try adding 5-10 drops of Thieves Oil to baking soda (bicarb soda) then get scrubbing!
