Thieves Essential Oil

Thieves. Sounds like a strange name for an essential oil right? I had a friend ask me recently (with a grin on her face), “so if I apply this, does it make me want to steal?” Haha.

Well, according to Young Living’s website, the name Thieves comes from a well-researched story about 4 thieves from France who would rob plague victims. The thieves would cover themselves with cloves and rosemary before coming into contact with the plague victims in order to protect themselves.

Which leads to the next question – what exactly is in Young Living’s Thieves essential oil? Thieves is a blended oil, which means that it contains more than one essential oil. The oils used in Thieves are clove, rosemary, cinnamon, lemon, and eucalyptus radiata. All of those oils on their own are very effective oils. Young Living put them all together to make one SUPER oil to support healthy immune function.

I have diffused Thieves in our home to help contribute to better health. And another reason it’s great to diffuse? It smells great!

P.S. – Thieves is part of Young Living’s Premium Starter Kit!

Lavender Essential Oil

 

Lavender is by far my favorite essential oil. It can be used for so many things, including supporting the immune system during the changing seasons, occasional dry skin and lips, and it is also used to soothe and calm. And it is often added into the wash on laundry day because it smells so great!

I call lavender my “go-to” oil. I carry it with me at all times, and if a situation arises where I need a different oil that is not with me, I use lavender instead.

Peppermint Essential Oil

Today I would like to spotlight peppermint essential oil.

My family uses this most for maintaining proper digestion. Simply apply a few drops to the stomach and abdomen area in a clockwise direction.

You can also use peppermint oil to support your physical performance during exercise. Add a drop of oil to your glass of water before your workout.

Now, it is important to note that peppermint is considered a “hot” oil, meaning that children and those with sensitive skin may feel a slight burning sensation when applying the oil to the skin. In those cases, it is highly recommended to dilute the oil with an organic vegetable oil or coconut oil before applying to the skin. Of course, if you do not want to apply peppermint oil to your skin, you can diffuse the oil in a diffuser. That way you can achieve the same effect by simply breathing it in.
