Essential Oils: Part 3: Thieves
I have shared a general overview about essential oils as well as a post about essential oils for fertility. I am very passionate about sharing about eating a clean diet and living free of chemicals and medications, which is one of the reasons I love essential oils so much. I wish someone had shared this information with me loooong ago, so in hopes of bringing awareness to the natural approach to health, I want to continue to post on the topic of essential oils.
Since it’s nearing flu season, I wanted to share some natural ways to stay healthy. My all time favorite oil for preventing sickness is thieves.
Thieves is a great oil to start with as it comes in the starter pack. Thieves is a blend oil, meaning it is made up of more than one oil. It includes very highly antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal oils including clove, lemon, cinnamon, and eucalyptus. According to research at Weber State University, Thieves Oil was found to have a 99.6% kill rate against airborne bacteria when diffused, so it’s great not only to protect against sickness, but you can use it to make antibacterial lotions and soaps as well.
To prevent sickness apply 1-2 drops on the feet daily. Thieves can be diffused as well.
Here are suggestions for oils that can be used in addition to thieves for other illnesses:
Flu and/or Cold – Apply RC and Raven to feet, chest, and back.
Runny Nose – Apply RC and Raven to throat, temples, and sinus area.
Sore Throat – Apply Purification and Oregano to throat. Gargle a drop of thieves.
Earache – Apply Purification around the ear
Allergies – Apply Lavender and Peppermint to base of neck. Can also digest using capsule.
If you have any questions about essential oils or don’t know where to start, I would love to share more information! I receive a wholesale discount on all orders I place so if anyone wants to use my discount, please contact me. I am very passionate about using oils and want to share the same passion with others!
