Young Living TheraPro Diffuser Effective for Use on Mold

0 Posted by - March 16, 2011 - Archive

Over the past three months I’ve been testing Young Living’s TheraPro® diffuser for use in conjunction with our protocol for eliminating toxic mold. The tests were conducted in three different environments: a hospital; a closed, mold-infested 9,000-square-foot health club; and a private residence.

I am pleased to report that our tests of the TheraPro diffuser compared favorably with the 6-watt cold-air diffusers we’ve previously been using.

Features that make the TheraPro Diffuser easier to use:

  • Eliminates the tubing and glass nebulizer of the other diffusers tested
  • Has built-in on-and-off timers
  • Holds a full 15 ml bottle of oil
  • Has to be filled less often

NOTICE: In order to get the best results using the TheraPro Diffuser for eliminating mold, you need to know the following:

Because the TheraPro utilizes a different mechanism for atomizing essential oils, there are differences in the way the oils are delivered over time. The TheraPro starts off at a higher rate of delivery, which decreases as the oil level in the bottle drops. Because of this the bottle has to be refilled every 10 to 12 hours in order to be effective. This is important because at the declining rate—after 10 to 12 hours—the amount of oil being diffused is insufficient to maintain the concentration needed to kill mold. So to use the TheraPro Diffuser for mold, you will need to have at least two 15 ml bottles of Thieves® essential oil blend on hand to ensure that you can diffuse at the necessary rate for at least 24 hours.

When used in this manner, in conjunction with the Close Protocol*, laboratory analyses showed results comparable to the results we’re used to getting using the 6-watt direct-pressure cold-air diffusers. I can, therefore, whole-heartedly recommend the TheraPro Diffuser for use in eliminating mold problems, provided it is used as described above.

A more detailed report of the tests will be made available in the near future.

*The Close Protocol is outlined in the book “Nature’s Mold Rx: The Non-Toxic Solution to Toxic Mold.”

    I use tea tree to eliminate the mold smell. Just put in some drop with your laundry. You coul also try Thieves oil. Also, I keep the door opened when noting use to dry outand the soap tray

    We just bought 2 Therapro Premium Diffusers and a lot of thieves ingredients to make our own thieves blend from Young Living. We will be attempting to remove mold from a crack in the foundation (that will be repaired after diffusing), ventilation system, walls and rooms following the above instructions of 24-72 hr applications in each area. I am Hopeful this will work & will keep you updated to our results!

    I read somewhere that the TheraPro Premium Diffuser is only for 600-800 square feet. If you are trying to get rid of Mold in a home bigger than this area, do you need more than one of these working at the same time?

    I have no idea why no one has answered yur questions. It is sad to see. I have talked to families who have had great results using this. I have friends that own them and have not had issues with them not running or not working. I would encourage you to speak to the person who sold it to you. For my Front loader I use thieves cleaner in a spray bottle.

    Wow – no one even answered your question. I am definitely going to move on and find something else. So disappointed. The people who sell this have been HOUNDING me, they must work on huge commission. So sad. :(

    While i am sad that this is the case, you just saved my family money we don’t even have, but were willing to somehow come up with if this could help save my life, which is pretty much not a life due to mold allergies, chronic illness (therefore no money to live elsewhere! Good times!)… i saw that little plastic thing and could not believe the price! And something built like that and needing to be used that often wouldn’t hold up long. :(
