Blend of: Clove, Cinnamon Bark, Rosemary, Lemon, and Eucalyptus Radiata essential oils

Inspired by the legend of four 15th century thieves during times of the plague who wore these herbs and snuck into the dying’s homes to rob them. When they were caught by authorities, they were told if they shared the recipe of what was keeping them well that their sentence would be lessened.

This is the oil that is going to support the immune system and overall wellness to its fullest. Additionally, Thieves Vitality may also help support a healthy respiratory system when taken internally.  I take it in a capsule. It can be used for our bodies and in our home.

Did you know that an average American spends between 80-90% of their time indoors and that the average American home contains 63 hazardous products? Young Living’s Thieves® gives us a non-toxic way to clean and, we can start ditching these harmful products from our homes. I dilute it in a spray bottle with witch hazel and distilled water to clean our home. It’s great for surfaces and mirrors!

Because Thieves® is so powerful, Young Living also has an entire Thieves® line of products that we can use for our bodies and in our home. From Thieves laundry soap, to household cleaner, dish soap, fruit and veggie wash, toothpaste, mouthwash, hand purifier, foaming hand soap, floss, spray, wipes — they basically have it all, and all with the powerful Thieves® blend inside!

I have to admit, Birdie, my youngest chicken, has been accepted by the other chickens, but she still sleeps inside on the back of an office chair. You can imagine what she brings in on her feet each night. I make sure I clean her feet with Thieves wipes every night before she comes in!

Overall, what is it good for?
