Have you heard of Thieves essential oil yet? I had heard the name before starting our Young Living Essential Oils journey but did not know too much about this oil.
When we first received our Premium Starter Kit, my two kids, hubby and I had a cold. After opening the box with our kit oils and diffuser, I immediately started diffusing 2 drops of Thieves oil and 2 drops of Peppermint oil. Our colds had just started that morning so I wasn’t really sure if diffusing was going to help but thought I’d give it a try.
That night, I diluted (which means to use a carrier oil like coconut oil) Thieves and rubbed it on my kid’s and my feet. I was really amazed when we all woke up feeling much better. Typically, our colds last about a week to ten days, minimum. This time, our colds lasted about 3 days.
During this same time, I started diluting Thieves and Peppermint and rubbing it on my chest since I have asthma. It took a few days of doing this but boy did I ever notice a difference in the way I felt. I started being able to take a deep breath and the heavy feeling that asthmatics always feel started to dissipate.
We started diffusing Thieves every day to ward off germs. What I noticed was that we were really staying much healthier and even if we did get sick, we were able to get over it within a day or two.
As we were using this oil, I learned something very interesting about it. The Young Living website says that, “Thieves was created based on research about four thieves in France who covered themselves with cloves, rosemary and other aromatics while robbing plague victims. This proprietary essential oil blend was university tested for its cleansing abilities. It is highly effective in supporting the immune system and good health.”
Here are some great ways to use Thieves essential oil:
We use Thieves essential oil every day now. It is one of our favorites and helps us in so many ways.
It’s all about the journey…
