101 Uses for Thieves Oil
Thieves essential oil blend Young Living's proprietary Thieves essential oil blend is a powerful combination of clove, cinnamon bark, rosemary, lemon, and Eucalyptus radiata essential oils. Proven effective against airborne bacteria, Thieves is the perfect oil to diffuse in your home, car, and office. Named for the legendary thieves who would rob the graves during the Black Plague and not get sick. Legend has it that when they were arrested, they were offered a lesser sentence if they would disclose what they were doing to protect themselves from the horrible plague. They reported making cold compresses of the five herbs that are the same five ingredients in Young Living's Thieves Oil Blend.
