Today we are going to learn about Thieves Oil. It is Young Living’s most popular oil- and with good reason. Thieves oil is a unique blend of clove, cinnamon, lemon, eucalyptus, and rosemary that has been used for years and years for it’s supporting and protecting properties. It was developed based on a recipes used by 15th century thieves who used the oils to keep from contracting the plague while robbing the dead. Research has since proven the powerful qualities of theses oils to fight harmful microorganisms. In fact, Thieves oil was tested by Weber State University in Utah in 1997, and found to kill 99% of airborne bacteria when diffused into a room.
Thieves oil is super easy to incorporate into your household. I use it for so many things. Here’s a few simple ways to support and protect yourself in order to stay healthy.
8 Ways to Stay Healthy With Thieves Oil
1. Supports the immune system:
I like to Rub Thieves oil onto the bottoms of my feet to support my immune system, especially if I have been exposed to an illness. Be sure to dilute with a carrier oil for children. I rub it on my little one’s feet before she goes to preschool.
2. Purify the air:
We diffuse Thieves Oil with a home diffuser. I love this method as everyone in the room enjoys the health-promoting benefits this way. I recently ordered a second diffuser for my home.
3. Hand cleaner:
Cleanse little hands without harsh chemicals by using a Thieves Oil hand cleaner. Young Living sells one on their website, or you can make your own easily at home with aloe vera gel, Thieves Oil, and a titch of water to thin it out.
4. Household cleaning:
Keep your counter tops and other surface clean with a simple Thieves Oil cleaner. I like to add 5-6 drops of Thieves Oil to water in a spray bottle. That’s it. You can use this on any surface. It is recommended to use glass spray bottles for essential oils. Empty apple cider vinegar bottles work well for this.
5. Gargle with it:
I will like to gargle with 1 drop of Thieves oil in water in 8 ounces of water and a pinch of salt. I find this the most effective way to use Thieves essential oil as it absorbs easily into the mucous membranes while you gargle. It is very supportive to the respiratory and immune systems.
6. Respiratory support:
I like to dilute Thieves Oil with a carrier oil and massage over my chest and lower back. Adding a warn compress over the chest for a few minutes will amplify the effect. I diffuse Thieves Oil as well.
7. Clean dishes:
Clean your kitchen by adding a couple drops of Thieves Oil to your dishwasher or dish water in the sink. No need for harmful chemicals to keep your family safe.
8. Personal roll-on blend:
I carry a personal roll-on blend with a mix of carrier oil and thieves oil in my purse. I apply liberally to the back of my neck and feet if I’m in crowded places or around sick people. This is great while traveling. I made one for my oldest daughter who just took off traveling for 3 months. I get my roll-on bottles HERE
