Today starts week two of my new 10 week series on using essential oils. I’ve learned so much about these beautiful oils and I want to share what I’ve learned with you. I asked the members of my facebook group (you can join my essential oils group here) which oil they would like to learn about this week. They picked Thieves Essential Oil Blend.
About Thieves Essential Oil
Thieves essential oil is a special blend of therapeutic-grade essential oils, including clove, lemon, cinnamon, eucalyptus and rosemary. The blend is named after four thieves who supposedly used the oils to protect themselves while robbing people dying of the plague. Thieves oil has actually been tested for its cleansing abilities and has shown to be very effective in supporting the immune system and eliminating bacteria. And it smells AMAZING! I love the scent – it’s my favorite of all the essential oils in the premium starter kit. Here are some of my favorite uses for Thieves Essential Oil:
How To Use Thieves Essential Oil
- Disinfect surfaces for a natural clean. Just add a 5-10 drops of Thieves to a small spray bottle and fill with water. Great for cleaning toys and baby gear without the harsh chemicals. You can also make these cleaning wipes to keep on hand too! Their great for traveling. I keep a container of them in my car and diaper bag.
- Support the immune system. Add a few drops of Thieves with a carrier oil and rub on feet (great for kids). Or put a few drops in a capsule and take with water.
- Soothe a sore throat. Add a few drops of Thieves to a small cup of filtered water and gargle for a few minutes. You can also make an all-natural throat spray. Add a few drops of Thieves and filtered water to a small spray bottle and use as needed.
- Natural bug repellent. Make an all natural bug spray to keep you and your family bit free during the spring and summer.
- Get rid of cold sores and canker sores. Apply neat (undiluted) to a relieve the pain and promote healing.
- Use while oil pulling for an extra cleaning kick!
