3 Reasons why you should use Thieves Essential oil

Thieves Essential oil.

This blend is the first Essential oil I ever heard of, back when I was a kid. It was inspired by a legend about Thieves during a European plague.  Imma have you look up the story because everyone else tells the story when they are talking about Thieves oil. When I was a teen my mom tried making ‘Thieves’ oil herself. All I remember is she smelled like cloves for a few months.

Thieves is a blend of Clove, Lemon, Cinnamon bark, Eucalyptus radiata, and Rosemary Essential oil. It comes in the Young Living premium starter kits and is a powerhouse of an oil.  Young Living makes an entire line of Thieves products, from mouthwash to dish soap, because this blend of oils has amazing cleaning properties for home and personal use. I clean my whole house using Thieves oil and/or the Thieves concentrated cleaner, and I’m switching my everyday products over to those in the Thieves line (dish and laundry soap, toothpaste, and mouthwash) for a chemical free home.

I love Thieves oil and order it every other month- 1 because I use it often and 2 because I want to be stocked up on it so I never run out!  There’s a bottle in my kitchen (of vitality) a bottle upstairs, and a bottle in the laundry room, along with having a stash of a few unopened bottles. I love this stuff and so does my Mr.
