According to popular theory, a blend of oils was created by a group of thieves and grave robbers to protect themselves from contracting the plague while robbing the bodies of the gravely ill and deceased. When apprehended, the thieves admitted to using the oils and disclosed the formula in order to receive a less severe punishment for their crimes.
I don’t know whether or not this story is true, but the Thieves Oil Blend was tested at Weber State University in Utah, and found to have a 99.96 percent kill rate against airborne bacteria. The essential oils in this blend are antiseptic, antiviral, and antibacterial. They stimulate the immune system, circulation and respiratory system, and help protect against the flu, colds, bronchitis, pneumonia, sore throats, cuts, and more.
There are many creative ways you can use it for cleaning and disinfecting, maintaining family health and in the care of illness and it is safe for the environment.
One of my customers, and the person I get my fresh organic eggs from, Pamela Lunn of The Dancing Goat, explains:
“Meeting 8-10K people a week at markets can really put me in the path of a lot of cold, flu and virus germs. Since I have been using Thieves Oil I have rarely been sick in the last five years! I keep it in my pocket and sniff all the time! Running a farm, I don’t have time to get sick and I know Thieves Oil protects me!”
If you are interested in making your own thieves oil recipe I recommend you use therapeutic grade oils only. Always dilute with a vegetable or carrier oil before using it. Rubbing it onto the bottom of the feet is highly effective and also the safest place to apply oils, but test for sensitivity first. The following Thieves oil recipe is excellent for daily use as protection against germs, especially during the cold and flu season.
200 drops of Clove Oil (Syzgium aromaticum)
175 drops of Lemon Oil (Citrus Limon)
100 drops of Cinnamon Bark (Cinnamomum verum)
75 drops of Eucalyptus Oil (Eucalyptus radiata)
50 drops of Rosemary Oil (Rosmarinus officinalis)
Store in a dark glass container away from heat and sunlight. Preferably in a cool location.
