Rev Up Your Immune System With Thieves Oil

The thieves combination of essential oils is amazing. It has wonderful immune-stimulating properties. It is great for fighting bacterial infections and works as an antiseptic and antiviral as well. During the worst time of flu and cold season, you’ll be more protected with this blend.

The word “Thieves” is a registered trademark of Young Living Essential Oils, LLC. However, recipes for thieves oil blend have been around for a very long time, before the word was trademarked.

The many uses of thieves oil

Diffusing this mix will purify the air, eliminate odors and kill harmful pathogens. I like using this when I have been exposed to any germs or illnesses. I’ll put several drops into my diffuser and run it as a preventative measure. I also apply a few drops directly to the bottom of my feet morning and night. If the mix seems warm, just add a carrier oil and it will take the warmth away.

Rubbing a few drops onto my hands is another way to use it — this makes for an all-natural hand sanitizer. You can also use this oil for colds, flu and bronchitis. Using a carrier oil, add this blend to your lower back, back of neck, chest and throat. Use it until your symptoms have gone away.
