One of the best essential oil blends out there, with a surprisingly shameful history, is Thieves. A similar vinegar blend was created by 15th century thieves that pillaged graves during the Black Plague. The blend, which consisted of clove, rosemary, and other spices, was used to help protect them from the diseases of the dead and dying they robbed from. Now, this blend is used for a multitude of purposes. I absolutely love using it as a cleaner. It makes the house smell amazing while breaking down all the dirt and grime. I can't believe I ever lived without such an amazing cleaning solution.
Thieves is a blend of clove oil, lemon oil, cinnamon oil, eucalyptus oil, and rosemary.
Benefits & Uses
In order to aid a healthy immune system, add a couple drops of Thieves into a capsule and take with water daily. Or simply a drop in a glass of water will do the trick.
This is my favorite way to use Thieves. It works as an amazing cleaner. After dinner mess? Spray a little Thieves. Dirty stovetop? A little Thieves. Messy bathroom sink? Thieves. Just add 4-8 drops to a spray bottle of water for your own cleaner.
Thieves contains eucalyptus which is wonderful to support your respiratory system. Take a capsule daily or add a drop to your water. Also, add 2-3 drops to your favorite carrier oil for a fabulous and helpful foot balm.
Take daily as a capsule or a drop or two in your water for overall wellness support.
Air Freshener & Neutralizer
Diffuse a little. Thieves works great to make your house smell amazing and clear the air.
Sanitize Your Dishwasher
Even our dishwashers need to be cleaned. Add a few drops of thieves to not only clean your dishes thoroughly but to clean your dishwasher as well. You can also use it in your dishwater.
Just a reminder, don't forget to dilute! Read more about the history of Thieves here.
