Thieves Essential Oil: Combatting Illness

I have been highlighting the 10 Young Living Oils from the Everyday Oil Collection that is included with the Premium Starter kit. This is, by far, the best way to get started with essential oil, as the kit includes 11 oils, a home diffuser, free samples to share, and lots of information. Click here to get started on your very own essential oils journey!

I guess I may say this about most of the oils in the Young Living Everyday Collection...but I LOVE THIEVES!! Truly I have seen so often sicknesses being combatted quicker or not getting passed along because of this blend of essential oils. And did I mention I think it smells incredible!

I love the story behind this blend. Young Living’s Thieves essential oil blend was named after and created based on the historical account of four thieves in France who covered themselves with cloves, rosemary, and other aromatics while robbing plague victims. When the thieves were finally captured, they were offered a lighter sentence in exchange for their secret for evading the deadly disease. Their mixture was then posted around town to help others prevent themselves from getting sick!

Thieves oil blend includes clove, cinnamon bark, rosemary, lemon, and Eucalyptus radiata. Thieves has been university tested and found to be highly effective against airborne bacteria.
1. Immune System Support: Rub 1-2 drops on the bottom of the feet (this is the part of your body with the largest pores). Remember to dilute with carrier oil for children. Also, you can put 2-3 drops of Thieves in a capsule and swallow one a day.
2. Cleanse the Air: Diffuse Thieves oil blend for 15-30 minutes in your home or office to help eliminate airborne bacteria and prevent illness spreading. This also eliminates mold in the air. 
3. Sore Throat: Mix with a TBSP of water, gargle and swallow. Or Make a homemade throat spray in a 4 oz glass spray bottle! Simply place 20-30 drops of Thieves in the bottle, then fill with filtered/ purified water. Shake well before each spray, and then spray in throat for sore throat relief.
4. Homemade hand sanitizer: In a 2 oz squeeze bottle, combine 2 TBSP of aloe vera gel, 1 TBSP purified water, 1/8 tsp vit E oil, 5 drops of Thieves. 
5. Tea for illness: Check this tea recipe out, from Bargain Blessings
6. Toothache and oral health: Apply to gums and teeth for pain relief from toothaches. Applying this blend orally also helps to maintain healthy teeth and reduce cavities. Young Living sales a number of oral and home products with this blend, including toothpaste and mouthwash
7. DIY cleaner spray: Place 20 drops of thieves in a 4 oz glass bottle with half tsp of salt. Fill with distilled water. Use in place of disinfectant chemical cleaners
8. Sanitize the dishwasher: Place a few drops of Thieves in the dishwasher, then run it on the sanitize cycle.
9. Cold Sore: Place 1 drop on cold sores to promote healing
10. Headaches: Put a drop on our tongue and press to the roof of your mouth
11. Carpet cleaning: Place a few drops in the carpet steamer to disinfect carpet
Now remember, not all oils are created equal. I can only speak for and the only oil company I recommend is Young Living. Please do not attempt to purchase this oil from a retail store. Most essential oils sold in stores is a completely different formula that is at best diluted and at worst adulterated. You can purchase any of these therapeutic grade oils from Young Living as a retail customer, but it is a much better value to purchase it as a wholesale member (24% less in fact)! This one is even included in the Young Living Essential Oils Premium Start Kit. For my story on getting started with oils, as well as more information on purchasing from Young Living, check this post out.
