Everyday Essential Oils and Their Uses: Thieves
Thieves oil is one of my favorite essential oils because the uses for Thieves essential oil are so vitally important!
Have you ever heard the backstory behind Thieves Oil? Thieves essential oil has a sordid past. Originally used by thieves who pillaged graves during the Bubonic Plague, this unique blend of spices and oils actually protected them against the bubonic plague that had killed off their targets.
Thieves essential oil is a blend of Clove, Lemon, Rosemary, Cinnamon and Eucalyptus therapeutic grade essential oils. Combined, these substances produce an oil that boosts our immunity.

We’re still discovering new aspects of its nature, but here are 10 uses for Thieves Oil here and now. Not to say you should go robbing graves or anything, but Thieves oil will help to boost your immunity and ensure you remain well!
