Thyme and Oregano Essential Oil – Why I Love Them
Thyme and Oregano are two herbs that most of us know and love. Just the smell of these brings all sorts of delicious foods to mind… Mmmmm.
(NOTE: essential oils should never be ingested)
Despite the best laid plans, we can readily end up with mould in our environments. Often, this is due to two factors. Firstly, there are mould spores everywhere. Secondly, when there is enough moisture present, mould can grow.
Whilst there are well-marketed products out there, that mostly do little more than to whiten the appearance of mould, these potent essential oils can actually kill mould.
When used properly, these essential oils can be amazing to have in your cleaning arsenal.
Below I outline how to use these oils effectively.
You know what? I use these every single time I do an assessment. I have them in my cleaning mix when I clean my equipment and cases. As well, I burn them in my car to help minimise issues as I travel back from an assessment.
If you have pets – caution is warranted with essential oils – please see below.
What is in it?
This pack contains 2x 15 mL bottles of essential oil. One is Thyme essential oil, the other is Oregano Essential Oil.
Or, you can buy the individual oils – one bottle of 15mL.
Both of these potent essential oils are products of Spain.
To preserve their integrity, they are packaged in green glass bottles complete with a dripper so that you can easily get a few drops of these potent essential oils, without overdoing it.
They can be purchased separately if you prefer.
Thyme and Oregano essential oil (as for all essential oils) should not be ingested.

How to Use Thyme and Oregano Essential Oils
To clean mould off hard surfaces (such as windows), simply make up a detergent-water solution, add a few drops of Eco Health Solutions 100% Pure Essential Oil: Thyme and 100% Pure Essential Oil: Oregano and clean with a well-wrung-out microfibre cloth.
Be sure NOT to rinse and reuse the cloth, instead, dispose of it after using to clean off mould.
Add up to 5 drops of essential oils to your wash.
I often put them on a microfibre cloth and put this in with the wash.
Put 1-2 drops on the essential oil pad for your car diffuser.
Always be careful about using essential oils around animals. Check with your vet.
