We us the Thieves Essential Oil blend in our Magic Mist room spray and in one of our Mama's Healing Sprays. We've loved it for a long time:
The following is a post from Paul Youngquist, LMT (https://www.facebook.com/WellnessWorksLLC.PaulYoungquist.LMT/posts/227204770746429) where he quotes the results from a study at Weber State University on the effectiveness of Thieves Oil.
Research Study from Weber State University:
Effect of a Diffused Essential Oil Blend on Bacterial Bio-aerosols
Journal of Essential Oil Research
Volume 10, Issue 5, 1998

Thieves, a commercial blend of five essential oils, was tested for its antibacterial activity against Micrococcus luteus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Staphylococcus aureus bioaerosols. An aerosol suspension of each bacterial culture was sprayed into a 0.4 m3 enclosed fume hood previously sterilized by ultraviolet light. Thieves essential oil blend was then diffused into the hood for a given time. Depositional sampling results showed a significant reduction (PM. luteus bioaerosol, a 96% reduction in the P. aeruginosa bioaerosol, and a 44% reduction in the S. aureus bioaerosol following 10 min of exposure. Results for the time exposure threshold of diffused oil showed that after only six min a 90% reduction in M. luteus viability occurred. Diffusion of the oil blend, Thieves, can significantly reduce the number of aerosol-borne bacteria and may have application in treating air for enclosed environments and preventing transmission of aerosol-borne bacterial pathogens.
