I just remembered about an unique essential oils blend that works very well. I have heard about it from a friend who worked in a reception area during the flu season and was swearing that Thieves oil blend helped her stay healthy. I bought it and kept for future needs.
The opportunity to try Thieves Oil Spray presented itself during a spring season, when I just started working for a family business. At first, older family members came to work with flu -like symptoms, sneezing and coughing. The next day I brought my Thieves oil spray and sprayed around myself at least three times a day. Within a week, maybe a week and a half, younger family members contracted the same symptoms. I continued to spray around myself and remained in good health.
It is one of the oldest and most interesting oils, based on the unique history of how and why it was developed. Legend has it that in the 15th century, when a terrible plague spread like wildfire across Europe claiming more than millions of lives, four thieves from Marseilles were busy notoriously robbing people, who were dead, of all their possessions. The thieves themselves did not contract any infection as they had applied a powerful herbal blend of natural oils on their bodies. This came to be known as thieves essential oil.
Thieves essential oil is a blend of five essential oils, which include clove essential oil, rosemary essential oil, lemon essential oil, eucalyptus essential oil, and cinnamon bark essential oil. It has a rich, spicy, and earthy aroma. This essential oil has potent antiseptic, disinfectant, and antibacterial properties, according to a report published in The American Journal of Essential Oils and Natural Products.
Thieves essential oil is well known to reduce stress, neutralize bacterial and viral pathogens, improve digestion, strengthen bones and reduce inflammation, as well as lowering fevers, healing skin conditions, aiding weight loss and strengthening the respiratory system.
