Thieves essential oil blend has its roots deep in history. It was created from research based on the infamous 15th century thieves who rubbed oils and herbs on themselves to avoid contracting the plague while they robbed bodies of the dead and dying. Legend has it they told their secret recipe to the King of France to be spared the death penalty. To honor their story, Young Living formulated their proprietary, immune boosting Thieves essential oil blend.
What is Thieves Essential Oil Blend made of?
Thieves essential oil blend is formulated with clove, lemon, cinnamon bark, eucalyptus radiata, and rosemary essential oils.
Clove supports your cardiovascular, respiratory, digestive, and immune systems. It’s a fantastic addition to oral hygiene and aids in anti-aging. It is also a stimulant, influencing focus, stimulates dreams, and creates a sense of protection and courage.
Lemon supports your respiratory, digestive, immune systems and is also great for skin health too. It’s largely used in skin care for its cleansing and anti aging properties. Lemon improves memory and concentration, reduces stress, and increases alertness.
Cinnamon essential oil is known for its immune boosting properties.
Eucalyptus Radiata helps support and purify your respiratory system and boosts your immune system. It’s also energizing and soothing.
Rosemary supports your circulatory, digestive, immune, and musculoskeletal systems. It also stimulates hair follicles and mental focus.
