My friend, Shari Kelley is a Member of Young Living Essential Oils and gave me some Thieves® Products a few years back, but I renewed this post because I still feel the information is relevant even then the prices may not be. I received Thieves® Waterless Hand Purifier, Thieves™ Fruit & Veggie Spray, Thieves® Dentarome Plus toothpaste, and Thieves® Household Cleaner.

Product Review of Young Living Thieves® Products
Young Living Essential Oils Company has a complete line of home and personal care products infused with the pleasant, spicy aroma of their proprietary Thieves® essential oil blend. The Young Living oils come with a “seed to seal” promise of purity. They are the leader in setting the standard for essential oil purity and potency. They have single oils, oil blends, household cleaners, skin care products, massage oils, supplements, NingXia Red® berry products, and so much more. Shari brought the products to my home for this review.
Thieves® Waterless Hand Purifier
To me, this feels similar to other hand sanitizers that I have used in the past, but it has a better smell (less offensive). It spreads nicely on my hands and I do feel like they are “clean” after using it. Also, I noticed that my hands didn't feel as dry and like the skin would crack. My hands felt a touch more oily or moisturized. I do like that rather than having cracked skin.
Thieves™ Fruit & Veggie Spray
I tested this out on grapes that are not considered organic. The grapes came straight from the store bag. I placed them into a glass bowl, then sprayed them.
I then used my clean fingers to rub in the spray.
I then rinsed them thoroughly using a strainer and cold water.
I had the glass bowl under it to catch the “dirty” water. I could see that some of the dirty specks from the grapes are in the rinse water.
I placed them into a bowl lined with a napkin and then used the napkin to dry them off.
Thieves® Dentarome Plus toothpaste
Okay, this one I have a love/hate relationship with…
The product says it “gently lifts stains for vivid, brilliantly clean teeth” and it actually does! My teeth are not as stained and they feel (when I lick them with my tongue) like they are cleaner.
It seems as though this has lightened the color of my teeth because when I was recently at an extended family gathering, someone noticed that my “teeth are so white”. I am usually the one to say that to people, I think this was the first time someone has said it to me!
When I eat garlic or onions or even some potato chips, I hate the after-taste and will go brush my teeth and tongue to try and get it off. I usually have to brush them three times until I feel better. And, more often when I am pregnant, which I am now. I brushed my teeth and tongue ONE TIME and it was gone! I am still in shock about this. It does not even make sense to me!
That my toothbrush looks dirty after I brush my teeth, they must be getting clean for a change.
The smell – it smells like a home cleaning product to me rather than a toothpaste.
The texture – it is rather gritty.
What it does to my toothbrush – it leaves grit down in the bristles and my toothbrush looks stained and dirty after I use it.
Thieves® Household Cleaner
I took the required amount (half of the packet) and added it to 16 oz water in a plastic spray bottle. Shari assured me it is okay to use a plastic bottle for this mixture. Some essentials oils mixtures require an amber spray bottle or glass spray bottle.
I tested this in three ways: window cleaning, counter cleaning and table cleaning.
I sprayed the window with the product and wiped it off. It was very simple and seemed to work just fine as a glass cleaner. I did not care for the smell, but again, I am pregnant, so maybe someone without such a “sensitive nose” would be fine with it. I would describe it as a spicy lemon-ish smell.
I sprayed it on my counter.
I felt it cleaned the counter very well and I felt like I could safely eat something that was placed on the counter and not worry about germs or bacteria on it.
Here is a chart that Shari gave me regarding whether it is cost effective.
Below is an example of how dirty my dining room table is. I was hoping that this cleaner would get out permanent marker and pen markings.
I really like how it makes my table look freshly oiled and the wood look beautiful, and yet doesn't feel oily, but it does not seem to get out permanent marker or old ink stains.

There is also a kit that comes with a diffuser.
Shari said you buy $50 of product per month minimum and in return you get points back called Essential Rewards. Here is a little information about the Essential Rewards.
Overall, I enjoy using the hand sanitizer. I feel healthier when I use the fruit and veggie spray. I really love the compliments about my teeth and the fact that I only have to brush one time to get rid of a yucky taste in my mouth, even if I have to put up with the taste/smell/dirty toothbrush at least it really does work. With the cleaning spray, I like that my dining room table seems to look newer although it is still stained, but otherwise I could live without it.
I enjoyed using their products and I think if I want to purchase more, I would buy them as a Retail Customer at this stage of my life because when I sign up to do something, I am usually “all in” and I don't feel I have the time right now in my life to pursue learning more about and selling essential oils. (I have seven children and am pregnant, homeschool, run an Etsy shop, a blog, and more, so I am busy!) My second reason is my husband says no. My third reason is I know other people that sell this brand and competitor brands and I would not know who to sign up under without hurting someone's feelings. If I was not in my current situation, however, it would be wiser to buy a kit. To be frugal, it seems like a person should buy every kit they can to get the best deal and to try the most products they can. You won't get that great of a price again, unless you get enough Essential Rewards.
