I love summer time! The change from the cooler weather into the warmer energizes me. Unfortunately, with that change comes BUGS. Lots and lots of bugs. Thankfully there’s a natural way to protect my family from these pesky creatures.
I get this question quite often. Often people would like to know if I was just going to choose JUST ONE oil which would it be. I can’t answer that question… There isn’t ONE magic oil; there isn’t one oil that does everything. So my answer to that question is another question, “What are you trying to accomplish with your oil?” Once that question is answered, I can direct them to one or two oils or a blend that will help resolve that issue. If you are thinking about joining the Essential Oil world and want to have a good foundation, I recommend ordering the Premium Starter Kit. You can learn more about it here.
By ordering the Premium Starter Kit, you have a solid starting point with oils. The Premium Starter Kit includes the following oils, here’s a little guide on how just 9 oils can cure most common ailments.
What about YOU? What is your go-to oil?
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.
