Thieves Oil for Natural Disease Defense
I often recommend Thieves oil as natural defenses to prevent against disease to people who ask me about a simple, natural solution to prevent air-borne diseases. There are many over the counter products available that are taken for air travel, but I really like the very old and natural aromatherapy combination properly named, Thieves Oil.
Thieves oil is a simple combination of essential oils that obtained its name from a group of spice traders, turned thieves that survived the Black Plague in Europe while millions of others died. These thieves not only survived, but managed to create a very lucrative pawn business stealing personal articles from victims of the plaque without any health consequences themselves. Once captured for their crimes the King of England spared them from being burned at the stake if they would share their secret.
Thieves oil protected these men against the bacteria that was carried by flees and mites on rodents. This formula has a history as an antifungal, antibacterial, and antiviral. Needless to say it also repeals insects, all of which can be very useful for anyone traveling or in an area prone to disease carrying insects.
The recipe for Thieves oil is quite simple and only requires several drops of a variety of different essential oils. These oils are readily available in most health and nutrition stores and are very easy to make at a very reasonable cost. The combination will last you a very long time for only pennies per use.
I like this for the low cost and for the non-toxic combination made 100% from pure essential oils with no chemicals or preservatives. If you are looking for something to help prevent the spread of disease, Thieves oil may be just what you are looking for. I have included the recipe so that you can easily make this at home.
As a side note, you can also add Thieves oil to a vaporizer to permeate a room or add it to balms or salves. Any way that you choose to distribute the oil, I think you will find it beneficial to you and your family. Have fun making it and stay healthy.
Mix together and store in a dark glass bottle with a glass dropper. Increase the drops to make a larger recipe.
This full strength Thieves essential oil mixture can be applied to cold sores or planters warts. Add a few drops to your tooth brush to help disinfect. You can Add 5 drops to your laundry to help clean and deodorize; to your dishwasher to eliminate buildup and odors; and add to a cloth and put into your dryer when drying your cloths; to your water when washing your children’s toys. I really like adding a few drop of Thieves Oil to about 4 ounces of water in a mister. I like to spray the leaves to help repel plant aphids. It won’t hurt your plants.
If you are looking for something natural that can be safely used with you and your family, Thieves oil is an easy, low-cost and effective way to keep everyone healthy.
