Thieves essential oil blend has may uses and benefits that keeps it on the list of top 5 essential oils and blends to keep on hand. It has a rich history in helping support your overall wellbeing and immune functioning. Unfortunately sometimes it does go out of stock or sometimes we overlook what oils we have and simply run out at the most inconvenient time. Thankfully, it is easy to DIY Thieves Essential Oil Blend.
Thieves is an excellent essential oil blend to use for everything between
- helping your body maintain health
- being the perfect addition to your homemade cleaners
- being the perfect addition to your homemade toothpaste
- adding to your homemade cough drops
- … and so much more…
DIY Thieves Essential Oil Blend Recipe:
- 80 drops of Clove essential oil
- 70 drops of Lemon essential oil or Orange essential oil
- 40 drops of Cinnamon Bark essential oil
- 30 drops of Eucalyptus Radiata essential oil
- 20 drops of Rosemary Essential oil
To make your DIY Thieves Essential Oil Blend, add all 5 essential oils into a 15 ml dark or colored glass bottle. This recipe will give you approximately 240 drops (possibly more if additional droplets slip out). A 15ml glass bottle holds roughly 255 drops, so you won’t be filling the bottle all the way to the top.
I love reusing old bottles. You can reuse your own bottles by boiling them and allowing them to dry first to ensure they’re clean. If you don’t have old bottles to reuse (we keep all of ours), you can purchase them from Amazon or other bottle companies.

** PLEASE NOTE ** Don’t be fooled by clever marketing. Not all essential oils are created equally. Make sure you’re not wasting your money on fake essential oils, or oils diluted in questionable solvents (even if they’re labeled as “pure essential oil”).

Where to Buy Essential Oils
We purchase our oils through Young Living because they set a higher standard for essential oils than what the rest of the industry expects. Their Seed to Seal guarantee is unmatched, and shows their dedication to a farm-to-table type of approach.
Warning: DO NOT purchase your oils through Amazon or similar websites!
Any website that allows anyone to sell on, such as Amazon, eBay, Walmart… etc… are terrible places to purchase essential oils. While you may get a “good deal,” knowing who you’re purchasing from is difficult. There are many counterfeit essential oils being sold that are causing health ailments, major skin reactions, and a lot of misery. These are NOT high quality essential oils. They are fakes being sold purely for profit.
I also do NOT recommend purchasing from grocery stores, Walmart, Target, department stores, or drug stores. Many of the brands found at those stores have been proven to not actually contain any essential oil (which is perfectly legal to do).
I STRONGLY suggest you know the company that makes your oils, how the plants are cared for, what they do for distilling, how and how many times each batch is tested (and when), and their bottling processes. Many companies throw out fancy language for marketing purposes, but actually have no clue how their oils are made because the oils come from a broker (which are almost always diluted in solvents). Transparency is key.
I highly encourage you to check out our How To Find Quality Essential Oils post for in-depth information about why quality matters, and what to look for.

They are totally transparent in their processes, and even open their farms so you can see for yourself (or involve yourself in the process).
