Protection with Thieves!
History of Thieves
"Young Living's Thieves essential oil blend was created based on the historical account of four thieves in France who protected themselves from the Black Plague with cloves, rosemary, and other aromatics while robbing victims of the killer disease. When captured, they were offered a lighter sentence in exchange for their secret recipe. Young Living's proprietary Thieves oil blend includes clove, cinnamon bark, rosemary, lemon, and Eucalyptus radiata and has been specially blended to offer the same kind of defense. Thieves has been university tested and found to be highly effective against airborne bacteria."
While this does not seem like a very pretty picture, the Thieves oil blend has been documented to be highly anti-viral, antibacterial and antiseptic. It protects against viruses and bacteria with a percentage rate of 99.96%
Using Thieves essential oil can be a powerful way to support family health and wellness. We like to diffuse the oil in our home and clean the air of any viral germs. It is a safe and natural means of filling your home with therapeutic benefits while strengthening your immune system. Thieves diffused leaves a refreshing clean scent!
We have also used Thieves for the following:
Colds, fever blisters, flu smyptoms, sinusitus, sore throats, toothaches, and swimmers ear.
I have applied a few drops of Thieves essential oil to my temples, wrists, throat, behind and around the ear, and also on the bottom of the feet.
Below is a list of the five essential oils and the properties in each that come together to give us Thieves!
Clove: Immune enhancing, powerful antioxidant
Lemon Oil: Powerful antioxidant, natural solvent and cleanser, supports circulation
Cinnamon Bark: High in antioxidants, supports digestive system, relieves discomfort
Rosemary Oil: Naturally energizing, helps to restore mental alertness when experiencing mental fatigue
Eucalyptus Radiata: Highly antiviral, supports respiratory system, antibacterial
Using the Thieves oil blend, Young Living created a wonderful line of personal and household products with these natural antibacterial properties! From oral care to household cleansers, Young Living is certainly a leader in providing safe, natural everyday products for our families and homes.
First Aid: I have used the Thieves spray with one squirt on my throat to feel instant relief from a sore throat! I have also used the spray on anything from cleaning doorknobs to spraying shopping carts! Young Living also has lozenges to dissolve easily in the mouth and bring soothing relief.
Household Cleaner: This is a super concentrated cleaner that is biodegradable and meets EPA standards. Thieves cleaner is formulated with 100% plant and mineral based ingredients. I especially like it on my kitchen countertops, outside/inside the refrigerator, bathroom sinks, toliets, shower glass doors and floors.
Personal Care: Choose foaming hand soap, or bar soap if you prefer, at every sink in your home. The waterless hand purifier is an easy take-along in your purse, without any harmful chemicals. Gently clean, whiten your teeth and freshen your breath with Young Living's toothpaste containing all natural therapeutic-grade ingredients. The mouthwash is also one of my favorites! I use just a cap full and gargle in the back of my throat. The dental floss is infused with Thieves and Peppermint esential oils giving you added protection.
It is a comfort to know that I am using products that not only work well, but are safe for my family while making us smell great!
