Today, my friend Lindsey from The Road to 31 is helping me out while I recover from jaw surgery. I’m just starting to dabble in essential oils, so I was really excited when she said she wanted to do a post on it! Read on to learn all about Thieves essential oil blend and all the things it’s great for!
A Little History
Young Living’s Thieves Oil was created based on research about four thieves in France who covered themselves with cloves, rosemary, and other aromatics while robbing Bubonic Plague victims. You might remember art from that time depicting physicians in long black robes, wide brimmed hats, and masks that appeared to look like beaks. It is thought that these “beaks” contained a combination of herbs and spices that helped to keep the physicians from contracting the deadly illness. It is believed that these thieves discovered the benefits of these herbs and spices and put it to use for their own devices.
A Historical Recipe with Modern Uses
The recipe varies historically, but Young Living has tested its Thieves Oil blend at the university level and has found it to be safe and effective at controlling the growth and spread of bacteria. With a combination of clove, lemon, cinnamon, eucalyptus and rosemary pure essential oils, it packs a decent sized punch in keeping your home clean and your immune system in tip-top shape.
I use it on myself and my children when we are feeling the first stages of illness, and we diffuse it in our home to clean the air.***
