‘Tis the season…for germs. I heard a tummy virus was going around the school like wildfire on the last day they were in session. My little one puked in the middle of the night and had a low fever early this morning. I wish I had started to support our immune systems with Thieves a couple days ago, but she seemed fine and I dismissed the warnings. It came on fast in the middle of the night.
So what am I doing to support her system now? I have heard that peppermint is effective for fevers but haven’t had a chance to try it until now – and it worked! I put a drop on the bottom of each foot and the fever is gone now. I’m also applying Thieves to her feet and diffusing it to kill the germs in the air.
What is this Thieves oil? I am hearing that question alot. I’ll give you the book answer first:
Young Living Thieves essential oil is an amazing must have oil. This proprietary essential oil blend was university tested for its cleansing abilities and it was created based on research about four thieves in France who covered themselves with cloves, rosemary, and other aromatics while robbing plague victims. It was university tested for its cleansing abilities. It is highly effective in supporting the immune system and good health.*
Research conducted at Weber State University in cooperation with D. Gary Young, as well as other documented research, indicates that most viruses, fungi, and bacteria cannot live in the presence of many essential oils, especially those high in phenols, carcacrol, thymol, and terpenes. This, perhaps, offers a modern explanation why the Old Testament prophet Moses used aromatic substances to protect the Israelites from the plagues that decimated ancient Egypt. It may also help us understand why a notorious group of thieves, reputed to be spice traders and perfumers, was protected from the Black Plague as they robbed the bodies of the dead during the 15th century.

Thieves can be used in many applications – cleaning, diffusing, topical, and can be safely ingested. The Thieves line even has other products including a toothpaste which I love.
