So you’ve heard about Thieves and you want the scoop? Quite a few years ago my mother-in-law (who is a very smart woman) told me about Thieves oil. Honestly, she might as well have been speaking in Greek. She actually hooked me up with a bottle and it sat unused in my cupboard for a very long time. 😳 I was clueless as to what to do with it! So, please, let me fill you in on what Thieves is and why you need it in your life.
I know as a law abiding citizen you may be a little concerned about all this Thievery, but rest assured it’s perfectly legal. 😜 Thieves® blend is a powerful combination of Clove, Lemon, Cinnamon, Eucalyptus Radiata, and Rosemary essential oils. It has this amazing rich, spicy aroma. And yes, it will make your house smell better than any candle, but it’s benefits don’t stop there.
The name Thieves was inspired by the legend of 15th-century French thieves who robbed victims of the bubonic plague. The story says that they formulated an aromatic combination of clove, rosemary and other botanicals to protect themselves from catching the Black Death during their escapades. Modern science shows that these botanicals really do contain powerful constituents like limonene and eugenol that support good health.
Perhaps you are starting to get an idea of why Thieves is one of Young Living’s most popular products for supporting the immune system. Once you have tried it, you will never want to go back to a Thieves-less life. 😉
So how do you use it? At our house, we use Thieves essential oil as preventative immune support. Prevention is key! I diffuse it in our bedrooms almost every night. I feel so good waking up after a night of breathing in those wonderful immune system supporting molecules.
In addition, you can dilute in a roller bottle and apply it topically. I use the recommended dilution of 1:4, or 1 drop Thieves to 4 drops carrier oil. I don’t actually count the drops, I just eyeball it as I fill the bottle. Thieves is a spicy oil that can be irritating to the skin, so the bottoms of the feet is a great place to apply it.
Another option is using Thieves internally. What? Is that safe?!?? Yes! Young Living’s Thieves Vitality is labeled specifically for internal use; try mixing a drop with a spoonful of honey and adding it to a cup of tea for a delicious and soothing drink.
I also MUST tell you about the Thieves Household Cleaner. It is effective, economical and it is the ONLY cleaner that I have at my house. I use it as a veggie wash, toilet cleaner, sink and counter spray, mirror and window cleaner and more. Oh, and did I mention that it has SAFE ingredients? Yup, you can have your little minions help around the house without worry. 😉 An added bonus is how economical it is. I pay $22.00 for a bottle of concentrate and I get 10-12 large spray bottles of cleaner out of it. I just put a little in the bottom of a spray bottle and fill the rest with water. SO. EASY. You’ll never want to go back to regular cleaners again!
We also love Young Living’s Thieves spray, laundry detergent, mouthwash, foaming hand soap, hand purifier, toothpaste…. okay, basically I am obsessed with anything Thieves. 😆 Thieves hand purifier and spray go with us EVERYWHERE for public restroooms, restaurant tables, shopping carts, and for cleaning our hands whenever we get back in the car after being out and about. You just can’t go wrong with any of it!
So yes, Thieves is the bomb. Make sure you have plenty in your arsenal! If you don’t have one of Young Living’s awesome no-strings-attached memberships, this post is where you’ll find the scoop. It’s how you get the best price on Thieves and all of YL’s must-have goodies. ❤️
