As soon as I hear sniffles or feel a fever, I pull out my
arsenal of virus kicking weapons.A
virus doesn’t mess around. It is nasty and can plague all of us at one time or
another. At the top of this arsenal is Thieves.
Thieves oil is a personal favorite of mine.It is spicy and packed full of virus
fighters.It is a combination of
cinnamon, clove, eucalyptus, rosemary and lemon essential oils.I don’t know what the magic ratios are, but
let me tell you: it works.Over and
over again, it has stopped a cold dead in it’s tracks and fought off swollen
glands and a sore throat.One friend has
even successfully fought off a recurring staph infection with Thieves oil.Another friend uses it to spice her apple
cider (a delicious way to ingest it).
There are many ways to take thieves: rub it down your spine
or on your feet, add it to a hot beverage, or place it in a capsule.Be sure to dilute it with a carrier oil if
you rub it on your skin - it can definitely burn you! I may or may not have
experienced this first hand, despite being warned.Please don’t learn the hard way like I did!
I even diffuse this in our house to clean the air and spread
this delightful scent throughout the house. It smells like fall and holidays,
but I enjoy it year round and hope you will too!
