Tipsy Tuesday: Thieves® Blent
Who doesn’t love Fall? Amazingly wonderful things happen in fall. The only downside of the season is that our immune systems get challenged on the regular. We need to start prepping our immune systems for the challenges ahead.
This is where my all-time favorite Essential Oil blend comes in which consists of cinnamon bark,
lemon, eucalyptus radiata, rosemary, and clove. This blend is called Thieves® from Young Living Essential Oils. This stuff has completely changed my life. I have not been sick in almost FOUR
YEARS. I went from getting crazy sick two to three times a month to absolutely nothing. Maybe I’ll get a bit tired occasionally and just that slight little bit of “hmm, I might be coming down with
something” but that is IT! I have not missed a
single day of work due to illness. It is by far the best immune support I have found. If I do feel a little "icky" I just take it every fifteen minutes for a couple hours and then I am totally fine.
The story behind this blend is so cool too. During the 1400’s plague, there was a group of thieves going around stealing items from the homes of the deceased or even sometimes right off their bodies (eek!). They were eventually caught and questioned. Their captors were baffled by the fact that they seemed impervious to the plague and offered leniency in exchange for their secret preventative. Thus, came about Thieves® Essential Oil. Nifty, huh?
Each oil in this blend has since undergone rigorous research and the findings are nothing short of amazing. A simple PubMed search using these oils as key words will show that they are certainly not being overlooked. Many industries are catching on and incorporating them into production methods, particularly food packaging industries.
The other reason it’s a perfect seasonal blend is the cinnamon and clove, which makes me think of fall. If you love the smell but can’t stand the taste, you can add a few drops to a diffuser and let the scent fill your home while enjoying the therapeutic properties aromatically. If you want to use it on your person but, again, don’t like the taste, you can make an ointment by mixing some drops in a tablespoon of coconut oil and rubbing it over your spine. If you ARE going to use it internally, make sure you are getting the Vitality Line of Thieves®, which is specifically produced and marketed for internal use!
If you have any more questions about Thieves® or would like to know how to get your hands on this miracle liquid, please do not hesitate to ask!
