Oily Adventures: Thieves--Reduce the Toxins in Your Home and Make Your Home Smell Wonderful!!


Brace yourself, people. The information about this Young Living essential oil blend can change your life! No joke! The smell alone--cloves, cinnamon, eucalyptus, lemon, and rosemary can make your home feel and smell fresh and clean. But that’s just the beginning. Cleaning products that include Thieves have become the go-to cleaner for the Powells’ dishes, clothes, shower, toilets, floors, hands, countertops, … Are you getting the picture? We use this stuff constantly! A bottle of Thieves cleaner is the most valuable, healthy gift I can give anyone who wants to clean their home without using toxins! (And, really, who has a goal of introducing more toxins to their family?) You should also know that cleaning is only one of its many, many uses. Check out this site https://www.youngliving.com/en_US/products/c/at-home/thieves to see all the ways Thieves is used in cleaning and personal care products. Ready to buy some Thieves right now? There’s information about that at the end of this post.


Why does it matter what you use to clean your house? It matters! The cleaning products on our store shelves contain so many harmful chemicals, and every time we use those products we introduce those toxins into our homes! I was doubtful about using Thieves to replace my counter, glass, floor, and shower cleaner. I mean, could it really be that good? Once I made the switch, however, I was a believer. Now we use Thieves dishwashing soap, hand soap, and laundry detergent, and are continuing to replace more products with this healthy, safe alternative. We consider using Thieves in our home as part of an overall wellness regime.


Before we proceed, however, you may be wondering why the name? The Thieves blend was inspired by the legend of four 15th-century French thieves who formulated a special aromatic combination composed of clove, rosemary, and other botanicals to use while robbing the dead and dying of the Plague. That’s totally gross except that the robbers never contracted the contagion. When the thieves were caught, they actually received a lesser punishment from French authorities for divulging their secret for encountering the Plague without succumbing to it.


Thank goodness we don’t have to use Thieves to ward off the Plague, but that doesn’t minimize its usefulness. I’ve told you about cleaning, but there is also an essential oil blend that can be diffused to give your space a clean, fresh smell. Look at this page on the Young Living website to learn more about using the Thieves essential oil blend. https://www.youngliving.com/en_US/products/thieves-essential-oil



Thieves Vitality is another item that can be used for overall wellness and support of a healthy immune system. Additionally, Thieves Vitality may also help support a healthy respiratory system when taken internally*. I put a drop of Thieves Vitality in a cup of hot water along with honey, a drop or two of Peppermint Vitality, and two to three drops of Lemon Vitality for a tea that soothes a sore or scratchy throat. This page will give you more information about how to use Thieves Vitality: https://www.youngliving.com/en_US/products/thieves-vitality-5ml.
