DIY Thieves Sanitizing Spray

I was in a bind today when I realized I had run out of Thieves spray.  I use this amazing spray all around the home to sanitize all sorts of things.  Today I was changing the bedding and I like to spray the mattresses and pillows with Thieves spray to kill dust mites and remove odors.  But when I grabbed my bottle it was empty!  Then I realized I had everything I needed to make my own Thieves sanitizing spray and in literally one minute, I had a full bottle again!

Make Your Own Thieves Spray

  • Empty 1 0z bottle of Young Living Thieves™ Spray (or you could use any empty spray bottle you have)
  • 4 tsp. distilled water
  • 1/2 tsp. witch hazel
  • 5-7 drops Young Living Thieves™ Essential Oil Blend (available here)
    *Remember if you are making a larger batch, you will need to increase the measurements of ingredients I’ve listed here.

Put all ingredients in bottle, replace spray cap and shake well.

Why Thieves Spray Rocks

Thieves™ Oil is a potent antibacterial blend of essential oils.  Now that we’re moving into Autumn, I like to keep a bottle in my purse because you never know what gunk is on your shopping cart or when you’ll have to use a less-than-clean public bathroom.  Yuck!  Besides using it to kill dust mites on our bedding, I like to use it to:

  • Dust furniture – I spray it on my disposable duster and not only does it kill the dust mites, but it keeps dust from forming in the furniture as quickly.
  • Kill germs on shopping carts, door knobs, toilet handles and the like
  • Spray the dog’s bed.  He’s a dog and he smells like one!   ;-)
  • Disinfect toys
  • Bathroom deodorizer.  I live with men.  Enough said.

These are just a few of the things I use Thieves spray for, but the uses are practically limitless.  Make a bottle to keep at home and one to carry in your purse or diaper bag.

Add Homeschooler to The List

homeschool Y’all, I decided it wasn’t enough for us to be a WAHM and have 3 jobs between my husband and I (2 of which we own/run), so last week I added homeschool mom to the list.  Why not, right?  Ha!  We’re in week 2 of preschool for my almost four-year-old son and so far so good.  There have been quite a few surprises in the last couple of weeks.
