Essential Oils Every Home Needs: Thieves Oil

There are a bunch of essential oils I think everyone should try, but my favorite out of all of them is Thieves oil! First off, it smells like Christmas, which I love! Plus it helps support your immune system and is a great all-natural household cleaner!

Essential Oils That Every Home Needs!

A bunch of my favorite bloggers and I have gotten together to bring you a whole series on the essential oils that every home should have. Plus we are giving away a bottle of every single oil we discuss, so make sure you scroll to the bottom of the post to check it out!

The story behind the name of this blend is pretty cool. It’s based on a tale of four thieves during the Black Plague. When they were finally caught, they bargained for a reduced sentence by telling the authorities the secret of how they kept themselves from being afflicted during the epidemic. It was a secret blend of essential oils, and Young Living was inspired by the tale to create their own Thieves blend of oils!

I really do love it’s immunity boosting properties! If a cold or flu is going around, or I feel like I’m about to get sick, I put some Thieves oil in my ultrasonic diffuser. Not only does it make the room smell wonderful (it’s a blend of clove, lemon, cinnamon, eucalyptus, and rosemary), but it definitely helps support my immune system and keep me from getting sick!

And if I do actually catch whatever is going around, a few drops of Thieves in a capsule twice a day significantly shortens the duration of my illness!

Another thing I love using it for is cold sores. I get them every once in a while when I get stressed out, but I’ve found that if I can catch it just before it actually breaks the surface and put a drop of Thieves on it a few times a day, I can keep it from ever even breaking out! I used to have to go to my doctor and get a prescription three or four times a year whenever I had a cold sore, and now, most of the time I can catch them and stop them before they even start! It’s amazing!

Thieves also works great as a cleaning agent. You can add a drop to your dishwasher to help clean dishes and eliminate odors, or you can diffuse Thieves in a diffuser to help kill airborne bacteria. Young Living makes a Thieves Cleaner concentrate which is awesome for wiping down pretty much any surface! Counters, floors, bathrooms…you name it, you can clean it with the Thieves Cleaner! It’s a much better idea than having twenty different harsh chemical cleaners in your house!

It’s amazing how many things this one little oil can do!

    I would most like to win the Valor Essential Oil. I have been so curious about it! It is even supposed to stop snoring!

      Yep, I’ve heard that too! Neither my husband nor I snore, so I haven’t tested it out, but I’ve heard great success stories for snoring! Plus it smells really great, like a pine tree and being outdoors camping. 🙂
