The oil that I’ve been really using a ton this month is Thieves. Now I use the Young Living brand and is not comparable with other “like” oils that you might find – especially those found in grocery stores and whole food type markets. This oil is by far one of my favorite oils hands down (I think I say that about every oil), but March has seemed to be quite a “sick” month for us and without Thieves it would’ve been a LOT worse!
Thieves got it’s name from around the time of the Bubonic Plague were thieves would rob from the very sick or those that had actually died. They would cover themselves in oils to prevent their own sickness. Once they were actually caught, in exchange for their freedom, they had to give their “secret recipe” as to what was preventing them from getting sick. There are a lot of fun stories you can find about this on the internet.
Thieves essential oil is a blend of other essential oils consisting of clove, lemon, cinnamon, eucalyptus radiata and rosemary. I will say that this oil is a HUGE supporter of your immune system. And one important thing to remember about essential oils is that if you use them every day, they are wonderful at working PREVENTATIVELY! And I will admit that with my three kids and myself, I do not do such a good job of this like I should. One thing I always have to remember too is that since these oils are the purest form of the plant itself, that means they were created by God for us to use. The Great Practitioner has already given us these natural forms of treatment for our family so we should most certainly take advantage of that!
There are different ways to use Thieves oil and each person has to find the way that is best for them. Young Living is so confident in the Thieves oil that they’ve created an entire line of Thieves products that include mouthwash, toothpaste, soap, household cleaner, hand purifier, floss and hard lozenges. Aside from the actual oil, you will never catch me without the lozenges. They are so great tasting as well as beneficial to my health!
