Thieves essential oil is a blend of powerhouse oils that benefit the immune system and used for natural household cleaning. Young Living Thieves oil is my favorite oil for the ickiness of three young kids, with two in preschool.
Why Is It Called Thieves?
Thieves was created based on four thieves in France who covered themselves with cloves, rosemary, and other aromatics who managed to avoid the plague with this blend.
Today’s Version Of Thieves
Inspired by this ancient legend, Young Living created a proprietary blend of clove, cinnamon bark, rosemary, lemon and eucalyptus radiata essential oils called Thieves. This essential oil blend is one of their best selling oils and also one of my must haves!
It is highly effective in supporting the immune system and has powerful cleansing properties (which would explain why Young Living has an entire line of Thieves-infused products – from oral care to household cleaner and hand purifier).
Uses For Thieves
