5 Simple Ways to Get Rid of Mould Naturally Using Thieves

get rid of mould naturally with young living thieves

Before we talk about how to get rid of mould naturally there’s something I HAVE to tell you…

WARNING!! Bleach does NOT get rid of mould! This is the biggest myth out there. And it’s simply not true

Although bleach smells like it should eliminate mould, it doesn’t. It just bleaches the colour of the mould, giving the illusion of a mould-free surface. The mould lives on and that’s why in a few weeks you can see it again.

It’s just a little bit of mould… isn’t it?

No. No, it’s not!

Mould in our living environments is much more than just an unsightly nuisance; it poses significant health risks that can affect our quality of life. You and your family can suffer respiratory issues, allergic reactions, and even long-term health problems if mould is not addressed promptly and effectively.

Fortunately, natural solutions like Young Living Thieves essential oil blend and the Thieves Household Cleaner offer powerful, health-friendly ways to get rid of mould naturally. Coupled with the use of a Wanderful dry diffuser, these methods can help you maintain a cleaner, healthier home environment.

Let’s explore the best ways to get rid of mould naturally. But first it’s good to understand just why mould can be so bad for you and your family.

The Dangers of Mould in Your Home

Mould thrives in damp, warm environments and can spread rapidly, releasing spores that can be inhaled or come into contact with our skin. Exposure to mould can lead to a variety of serious health issues, including:

  • Respiratory Problems: Coughing, wheezing, and difficulties in breathing are common in mouldy environments.
  • Allergic Reactions: Symptoms like sneezing, red eyes, and skin rash can occur in people sensitive to mould.
  • Weakened Immune System: Prolonged exposure can weaken the immune system, making individuals more susceptible to other illnesses.
  • Severe Health Conditions: Exposure to certain types of toxic moulds, like black mould, can lead to serious health issues, including chronic lung illnesses.

Thieves Essential Oil: The Best Natural Solution

Thieves essential oil, a proprietary blend of clove, lemon, cinnamon bark, eucalyptus radiata, and rosemary essential oils, is renowned for its cleaning properties. This powerful combination can help in getting rid of mould spores naturally without the use of harsh, toxic chemicals.

Here’s how you can use Thieves oil in your mould-fighting routine:

  • Direct Application: Apply Thieves oil directly to mouldy surfaces or add a few drops to bicarb soda and apply it like a paste. Let it sit for a few hours before wiping the area clean.
  • Diffusing: Add a few drops of Thieves oil to a dry Wanderful diffuser to purify the air in your home. This not only helps in reducing airborne mould spores but also leaves your home smelling fresh and clean.

Thieves Household Cleaner: An All-Purpose Ally

The Thieves Household Cleaner is an all-natural, concentrated solution designed for cleaning all surfaces of your home. Its formula harnesses the power of Thieves essential oil blend, making it an effective weapon against mould. Use it as follows:

  • Surface Cleaning: Mix the recommended amount of cleaner with vinegar or water in a spray bottle. Apply it to any mouldy surfaces, scrub gently, and wipe clean.
  • Deep Cleaning Solution: For more stubborn mould, use a stronger concentration of the cleaner. Allow it to soak on the affected area before scrubbing and rinsing off.

The Importance of a Dry Environment: Utilising a Dry Wanderful Diffuser

Maintaining a dry environment is the key to eliminating mould growth. The Wanderful diffuser is a dry diffuser so it doesn’t require any water to turn the essential oils into a microfine mist. This can help with mould by dispersing essential oils like Thieves into the air. This doesn’t just help neutralise mould spores, it also reduces excess moisture in the air. The result is an environment where it’s hard for mould to survive.

The Best (simplest and cheapest) Way to Get Your Wanderful Diffuser

The Wanderful Diffuser comes in a Starter Bundle with 12 of our most popular essential oils for just $275 (total value $549.23), including the Thieves essential oil or you can buy the Wanderful Diffuser with a 5ml Citrus Fresh for $141.65 retail or $107.65 wholesale.

If you don’t yet have your own Young Living wholesale account then I would definitely recommend ordering either the Wanderful Diffuser Starter Bundle I mentioned above or the Natures Home Essentials Bundle (which comes with all the Thieves cleaning products) and add on the Wanderful Diffuser.

Health Benefits of a Mould-Free Home

When you eliminate mould and maintain a clean, dry environment it can lead to numerous health benefits, including:

  • Improved Respiratory Health: Reduces the risk of coughing, wheezing, and other respiratory issues.
  • Enhanced Immune Function: By reducing exposure to harmful mould spores, your body is less stressed and better able to fight other germs.
  • Allergy Relief: Less allergic reactions for individuals sensitive to mould.
  • Overall Wellbeing: A clean, mould-free environment means better physical and mental health, and a happier home.

Here is my step by step guide to get rid of mould naturally from your home

Step 1: Identify Mould-prone Areas

First, identify areas in your home that tend to attract mould. These are usually damp places with little to no sunlight, like bathrooms, kitchens, basements, and around window sills.

Step 2: Fire up your Wanderful Dry Diffuser with Thieves Essential Oil

Before cleaning off the mould spores, it’s important to keep the air in your home clean and stop the growth of new mould spores. This is where a Wanderful dry diffuser comes into play. Young Living’s Thieves essential oil, when diffused, helps purify the air and create an environment that’s hostile to mould.

You simply take off the dripilator (the silicone bit in the top of the essential oil bottle where the drips come out). Then screw the Thieves bottle into the top of the Wanderful dry diffuser with the straw inside. This draws the essential oil up into the diffuser, without the need for water.

Place the diffuser in the mould-prone area and run it for a day or two. I know this sounds excessive but you want to make sure you get rid of all the spores on surfaces and in the air before you start wiping them down. This will not only help prevent mould growth, but also leave your home smelling fresh and clean. I love that Thieves smells like chai!

Step 3: Prepare Your Young Living Thieves Solution

Young Living’s Thieves line includes a range of natural, plant-based products known for their cleansing properties. To get rid of mould naturally on surfaces, the Thieves Household Cleaner is your best bet. It’s a concentrated blend of essential oils like clove, lemon, cinnamon, eucalyptus radiata, and rosemary, which are known for their natural mould-fighting properties.

Mix a capful of Thieves Household Cleaner with 2-3 cups of vinegar or water in a spray bottle. For tougher mould stains, you can use it undiluted on a sponge or cloth.

Step 4: Apply Thieves Household Cleaner

Spray the Thieves solution directly onto the mouldy surface and let it sit for a few minutes to break down the mould. Then, scrub the area with a brush or sponge until the mould is removed. For persistent areas, you might need to repeat this process. Or try adding a few drops of Thieves essential oil to the Thieves Kitchen and Bath Scrub and making it into a paste to apply over the mould. Leave it for a few minutes before cleaning it off. I even use an old toothbrush to scrub the paste into the mould.

Step 5: Maintain a Mould-Free Environment

Prevention is key to keeping your home mould-free. Use your Thieves Household Cleaner spray regularly in damp areas, and diffuse Thieves essential oil regularly. Additionally, make sure your home is well-ventilated. Try to keep humidity levels low by using dehumidifiers in particularly damp areas.

By following these simple steps, you can get rid of mould naturally and safely from your home using Young Living Thieves products and a Wanderful dry diffuser. Say goodbye to harsh chemicals and hello to a clean, healthy living space!


You should never underestimate the impact mould can have on our health and wellbeing. By using natural solutions like Young Living Thieves oil, Thieves Household Cleaner, and maintaining a dry environment with the help of a Wanderful diffuser, you can get rid of mould naturally, without compromising on health.

Remember, the key to mould control is prevention. Keep your home dry, well-ventilated, and clean to ensure a safe, healthy living space for you and your family.
