Feeling a Little Rundown? Stock your Home with Thieves Essential Oil Blend

Essential Oils do more than just fancy our nose. Every bottle of essential oil has a powerful purpose that works in conjunction with our body’s healing power.
Thieves Essential Oil Blend: A Blend that has been coveted for Centuries.

One of the most coveted essential oil blends, Thieves, has a story behind it that rivals the suspense and history of a best-selling novel. Young Living founder Gary Young, while studying at Warwick London in 1991, came across a story that helped him develop the ultimate autumn scent that has become a best-selling blend for the leading essential oil company for twenty-five years. The spicy and fresh one-of-a-kind scent of Thieves is a blend of Lemon, Clove, Cinnamon Bark, Eucalyptus Radiata, and Rosemary essential oils.
The Thieves blend is over 25 years old and is infused in many of Young Living’s home and wellness products. Young Living has a special line of Thieves products designed to clean your home effectively and support your family’s wellness. You can find everything from Thieves toothpaste to Thieves dish soap.

The Essential Oil Power Behind Thieves Products

Young said he must have read 17 different versions of the Thieves story. Stories date back to the 15th century while some stories date to the 18th century. Despite the numerous stories, there were common threads in all of them. Some stories date back to the period when the plague threatened Europe. Thieves were robbing the graves and homes of the deceased. The robberies became well-known and happened often. Mysteriously, the thieves remained well even though disease was spreading. Not only did the King want these individuals caught, but he wanted to know how they protected themselves so he could do the same for the royal family.
“The legends speculate that the thieves believed that wearing a special combination of botanicals provided protection while they were stealing. French authorities recognized that there was such value in this mixture that upon the thieves’ capture, they received a more merciful punishment on condition that they divulge the ingredients in their secret formula to the king. The formulas also varied from one story to the next, but through my research, I was led to four key botanicals that were mentioned again and again. Those ingredients were clove, cinnamon, rosemary, and lemon—four of the same ingredients that make up Young Living’s Thieves essential oil blend today.”  GARY YOUNG, founder of Young Living Essential Oils. 
In order to round out Young’s modern Thieves formula, he added another element of protection: the plant eucalyptus radiata, which has been rare to find in those days. Thieves is one of Young Living’s most versatile blends.

Here's what some other says about Thieves

"I love the scent of Thieves. It's fresh and anytime I feel rundown or just not myself, I diffuse Thieves and it really helps my immunity bounce back"  Sally

"I really like Thieves toothpaste over any natural toothpaste I've tried.  I feel as if my mouth is cleaner and when I went to get my teeth cleaned after almost a year (I accidentally forgot my last six-month appointment), the dentist said my teeth were perfect and the hygienist did not have to work extra hard either.  I'm sold on its power."  Leigh 

It's more than just oils. It's household products.

"With the Essential Rewards program offered through Young Living, I save money on the Thieves household products because they give me points back based on my purchases.  I no longer buy my detergent at Whole Foods. With Young Living, I know I am buying an all-natural product and with my reward points, I have enough points to get a detergent as a bonus and no charge every few months or so. It is a budget saving." Gayle

"I love the Thieves hand soap. My children love the hand soap. It has the best smell. It was given to me as a gift and now it's my favorite soap.  Heather

"The Thieves hand purifier is not like anything I have tried before. I love it. A little bit goes a long way. It's luxurious and safe. It's my favorite for the classroom."  Sarah, an elementary school teacher.
