Young Living ‘Thieves’ Product Line
Everyone wonders about the name, "Thieves." The ThievesEssential Oil blend formula is based on aromatics used by four thieves in France to protect themselves from the Black Plague while they robbed the bodies of those who had died from the disease. In exchange for their recipe, they received a lighter sentence for their crimes.
Young Living's proprietary blend includes clove, cinnamon bark, rosemary, lemon, and Eucalyptus Radiata. It is very effective against airborne bacteria and has been universally tested.1
The line now includes several plant-based products. There are toothpastes, mouthwash, and dentalfloss for oral hygiene. There are soaps, both bar and foaming, and a waterlesshand cleaner. For cleaning, there is a concentrated householdcleaner, a ready-to-use spray, and wipes. You can even get lozenges, in hard or soft formulations.
The Thieves formula is the basis of InnerDefense capsules, with added oregano, thyme, and lemongrass essential oils for even more anti-microbial effectiveness.
This is a wonderful line to introduce into your home and a great addition to your germ-fighting arsenal this time of year!
