If you do some research into the Royal English Archives, you’ll come across an interesting little tidbit. It’s a recipe for “thieves’ oils.” So the story goes: In the 17th century, when all of Europe was in the thrust of the Black Plague, a small band of marauding thieves seemed immune to the disease. They would enter the homes of Black Plague victims and have no fear of touching the bodies as they searched for jewelry and money. The King demanded to know their secret.
Their secret had to do with the oils they rubbed on their bodies. Because their family was from a long lineage of apothecaries, they had knowledge about how to use oils medicinally and prophylactically against disease. The King got the exact formulation they were using against Black Plague and this saved his entire family from the disease.
Today we know this oil blend as “Thieves”… This healing oil is a blend of five different therapeutic grade essential oils, including cinnamon, clove, lemon, eucalyptus, and rosemary. This combination of healing oils covers a broad spectrum of antimicrobial activity and contains properties that strengthen the immune system. Due to its effectiveness against highly infectious germs, including viruses and bacteria, it is one of nature’s most powerful natural home remedies.
Thieves has been scientifically proven to kill deadly germs! Research from Weber State University in Utah has shown that it has a 99.96% kill rate against airborne bacteria… it was also proven to be highly anti-infectious, antiviral, antibacterial, and antiseptic.
Research shows that this blend effectively interrupts the life cycle of bacteria and also interferes with the ability of viruses to replicate… Studies have confirmed that most viruses and bacteria cannot live in the presence of many essential oils, including two of the oils found in Thieves, cinnamon and clove.
Thieves is one of the most popular blends available, so popular in fact, that Young Living introduced an entire product line made with Thieves! How awesome is that?
This stuff can clean even the worst of messes and never break a sweat! Plus it’s completely natural and safe for both pets and children to be around!
I use this oil anytime at all that I’m feeling sick, and when I get home from work I diffuse it to kill any germs I may have picked up while I was out. And do you want to know what the VERY best part of this all is? It smells like Christmas… Christmas in a bottle… not the fresh pine tree kind of Christmas smell, but the warm gooey cinnamon cookie type of Christmas smell… Oh, and one other thing, this bad boy comes in the Premium Starter Kit… it’s okay, I understand that your mind is blown right now, you can thank me later!
