Prior to using Thieves Essential Oils from Young Living Essential Oils, I contacted streptococcus (strep) at least 2 times a year. It would attack my throat making it feel as though it were closing, my body muscles and joints would become very painful. Strep in turn would become bronchitis or pneumonia. Usually it meant a trip to the doctor, antibiotics, pain and cough medications, then bed rest for anywhere from 4 days – 4 weeks.
After using Thieves everyday, applying on my pulse points and my chest I have not had a case of the Strep at all. If I am around anyone that is sick, family members, friends or out in the public I have stayed free of strep, the flu, common cold or any of the infectious deceases. I am convinced this Essential oil has helped me to stay free of the infectious disease that have been so rampant during the last few years.
For my family I make a syrup of Thieves mixed with Agave Nectar for sore throats, coughs and symptoms of the flu and common cold. This usually takes care of the sickness.
I have been free of illness of this nature for about 3 years. I highly recommend this Essential oil to anyone susceptible to illnesses. Some essential oils are used with vegetable oils (olive oil, or a vegetable oil). This dilutes the essential oil for skin sensitivity.
*Thieves are a blend of highly antiviral, antiseptic, antibacterial, anti-infectious essential oils. Thieves was created from a research of a group of 15th century thieves who rubbed oils on themselves to avoid contacting the plague while they robbed the bodies of the dead and dying. When apprehended, these thieves disclosed the formula of herbs, spices, and oils they used to protect themselves in exchange for more lenient punishment.
Studies conducted at Weber State University (Ogden, UT) during 1997 demonstrating it’s killing power against airborne microorganisms’. One analysis showed a 90 percent reduction in the number of gram-positive Micrococcus luteus organisms after diffusing for 12 minutes. After 20 minutes of diffusing, the kill-rate jumped to 99.3 percent. Another study against the gram-negative Pseudomonas aeruginosa showed a kill rate of 99.96 percent after just 12 minutes of diffusion.
Blend of Thieves essential Oils are Clove, Lemon, Cinnamon Bark, Eucalyptus, and Rosemary.
How to Diffuse Thieves Essential Oil
Thieves can be diffused for 15-30 minutes every 3 to 4 hours. Apply to bottom of feet, throat, stomach, or abdomen. For headaches put 1 drop on tongue and push against roof of mouth. Put 4-8 drops on cotton ball and locate on vents. Add 2 drops to a wet cloth and put in clothes dryer.
