Spice It Up with the Thieves Range

Thieves blend is the base oil in a full range of  products from whitening toothpaste and a great tasting mouthwash, to our amazing household cleaner, dish soap and laundry soap.
One of my favourites is the Thieves Fruit and Veggie Soak to remove nasties from your fresh produce.

Waterless Hand Cleaner

Another fav of mine is the waterless hand cleanser & thieves spray which I always carry in my bag. Great when traveling and no nasties either.
