JUST A DROP THIEVES…
Thieves is THE oil for immune support. We're talking what you want to reach for daily to give your body a little extra boost and definitely what you want to reach for when your defenses start to go down. A quick PubMed search for the individual oils in this blend will have you convinced that these oils can be a powerful tool for our health!
THIEVES BACKGROUND Formulated by Young Living founder, D. Gary Young, this blend was created from research recorded in the archives of the British Museum library about a group of 14th century European perfumers and spice traders who rubbed oils on themselves while they robbed the dead and dying. The first essential oil blend to be scientifically evaluated in a university research laboratory, Thieves has a rich, spicy aroma, and is a key ingredient in the Thieves Home Collection – your go to for an invigorating clean and healthy home.
KEY CONSTITUENTS *Constituents are naturally occurring compounds in plants (and therefore essential oils) that give them specific health-supporting properties
THIEVES & EMOTIONS Thieves is a powerhouse for our health, both physical and emotional. This makes a lot of sense since our emotions are closely linked with our physical health. When we are sick our energy is low, we struggle with brain fog and lethargy. Thieves can help us there! Rosemary, Clove, and Cinnamon are all wonderful for helping combat brain fog, clearing the mind, and energizing our spirits. Diffuse, apply, add to an Epsom salt bath.
Thieves is a wonderful choice when you need to help promote clarity. If you're feeling uncertain or unfocused, the blend of oils in Thieves can be helpful. Dilute and apply it over the throat or over the liver.
Note: Thieves and Thieves Vitality are the same essential oil. Vitality oils are labeled for ingestion but contain the same oil as the non-vitality option.

“I apply thieves topically every day for the immune support. I'm a teacher and it goes in my classroom diffuser (usually with a citrus oil) every day!” - Amy L.
“Thieves is what got me started with essential oils 8 years ago. It was Thanksgiving break and I had horrible tooth pain, but no dentists were available. A friend gave me some Thieves to hopefully help numb it and it was a lifesaver. I bought a starter kit the next month!” - Ashley G.
“My favorite thieves story (and there are many!) when I first got my kit many years ago my husband rolled his eyes as I did when I first heard about oils. (This was pre-Covid) 2 days later he came home from work early with flu symptoms, fever, aches chills etc. He said he was going to lay down and rest he had a dinner with the President of the company at 6 he couldn't miss. He was going to make an appearance and come home. I said well okay let's put these oils to the test! I gave him 2 drops in a spoon full of honey and sent him to bed. He got up still felt like crap I said here take one more before you go. His plan was to be home around 6:30. He walks in at 9:30 fever free felt fine. I said what happened? As soon as he got there all symptoms went away and he went to work next day. From that day on if the kids had as much as a sniffle, he'd say don't forget to give them oils” - Jennifer L.
