Thieves oil is one of my favorites because it fully supports the immune system! When you have a healthy immune system, your body is able to fight off bacteria effectively. A healthy, fully-supported immune system is your best defense against disease causing pathogens.
Have you ever heard the backstory behind Thieves Oil? Thieves essential oil has a sordid past. Originally used by thieves who pillaged graves during the Bubonic Plague, this unique blend of spices and oils actually protected them against the bubonic plague that had killed off their targets.
The oil blend that comprises Thieves is known for enhancing complete health and total well-being. Each of the oils selected makes Thieves one of Young Living’s most effective and favorite products.
Clove oil, nature’s richest source of eugenol, is the highest-scoring single ingredient tested for its antioxidant capacity on the ORAC scale. Clove is also known for its immune-enhancing properties.*
With 68 percent d-limonene, Lemon oil is a powerful antioxidant known for its ability to act as a natural solvent and cleanser.
High in antioxidants, cinnamon bark has a reputation for relieving discomfort during the winter season
and supporting the digestive system.*
As one of the most versatile of the eucalyptus oils, Eucalyptus Radiata has many health-promoting properties. This powerful essential oil contains eucalyptol as one if its major elements, which in laboratory tests has been reported as being effective against bacteria in topical applications.2
Rosemary oil is naturally energizing and may be beneficial for helping restore mental alertness when experiencing fatigue.
Proven effective against airborne bacteria, Thieves is the perfect oil to diffuse in your home, car, and office. We apply it to the bottom of our feet nightly during cold and flu season or anytime we know we’ve been exposed to germs, this gives our immune systems an extra boost to fight off pathogens and keep us feeling awesome.
What about YOU? What is your “go-to” immune support?
