Thieves Essential Oil is an excellent blend of essential oils that is specifically designed to support the body’s natural defenses. This proprietary essential oil blend was universally tested for its cleansing abilities. It includes Eucalyptus radiata essential oil, which may help maintain a healthy respiratory system.
Did you know that Thieves oil was developed based on the ingredients found in the “Four Thieves Vinegar” or “Marseilles Vinegar”? The vinegar was first prepared by thieves that worked in the spice industry and robbed the dead and dying to generate income in the 15th century. Some nasty things going around then. Crazy time of history!
The oils in Thieves are Clove, Lemon, Cinnamon Bark, Eucalyptus and Rosemary. Remember last month talking about ORAC values? If you need a refresher course, Lisa Greco Lopez wrote an excellent article about ORAC values and what they actually mean to us. Check it out!
The ORAC value of these individual oils are as follows:
Clove – 1,078,700 µTE/100g (that is NOT a typo! good stuff!)
Lemon – 660 µTE/100g
Cinnamon Bark – 10,340 µTE/100g
Eucalyptus – 2,400 µTE/100g
Rosemary – 330 µTE/100g
Also, Thieves is Kosher Certified. Being kosher-certified means that a product is fit to use in any application in a manner that conforms to the kosher laws rooted in Biblical and Rabbinic traditions. These products and the facilities that produce them have been inspected and found to meet strict kosher requirements.
Thieves essential oil is definitely one of my favorite essential oil blends and I will not leave home without it! A day doesn’t go by that I don’t use Thieves for something. And it’s found in so many YL products! Might want to try it….just saying…
