Thank you so much for your review. We love it too. I always have a bottle of the spray in my vehicle. I prefer to use it instead of the heavily scented hand sanitizers stores are now using. I also spray my mask after each use.
A home must have!
We loved this product before the pandemic but it became a must have for every washing station in our home. I've referred it to many friends & family. We buy the large size because we never want to run out. Love the texture & smell.
Thank you so much for your lovely review of our 4 Thieves Foaming Hand soap. We formulated the product 3 months before the pandemic hit. We weren't sure if people would be interested in it but proved to be a big hit with people. I am happy to hear that your family loves it.
I use the 4 Thieves oil in my diffuser to not only keep me healthy but to make my home smell nice. As well, the 4 Thieves roller ball is small and handy to use even when on the go.
My 84 year old Mom diffuses 4 Thieves Germ Shield all winter long. She has done that for the past 4 years and has not been sick in as long even though she was exposed to Covid 4 times in the last 18 months. I am a convinced user too!
I love the 4 Thieves spray, I spray a little bit on my feet every night to help me sleep and keep me healthy 😊👍
Great idea! Thanks for the 5 stars. We really appreciate it. I personally use the 4 Thieves Body bar as it leaves my feet as soft as a baby's skin. I use the spray in my kitchen around the garbage and counter tops. My 84 year old mother diffuses the oil and has not been sick in over 4 years even after being exposed to covid 3-4 times.
I love the smell of this product! In fact, I sprayed some in my hair and around the outside of my face, and my boyfriend complimented how great I smelled! With COVID still being an issue, and trying to keep my immune system high, I appreciate the high quality essential oils in this product, and how they can sterilize products without the use of harsh chemicals. Adore!
Sorry this took so long to thank you for your review. I just learned how to answer reviews. I can mix up all kinds of products with no problem but put a computer in front of me and I am lost. LOL I love that you are using the 4 Thieves Germ Shield in all kinds of ways. My 84 year old mom diffuses it in her living room and has not been sick in almost 5 years despite being in direct contact with Covid twice now. Spray on the bottom of your feet before bed if you have been out and about.
