Synergy Blend 10ml – Thieves Oil
Thieves Oil is a blend of five essential oils, clove, lemon, cinnamon, eucalyptus and rosemary that’s known for it’s immune boosting, bacteria fighting qualities. A great winter oil.
This particular essential oil blend was based on a story from the 15th century, when the bubonic plague was decimating populations in Europe and Asia. Four thieves from Europe, who were notoriously robbing the infectious dead bodies of all their possessions somehow never contracted the highly infectious plague and this led to deep inquiry in court once they were caught. The magistrate offered them a deal, their secret for a reduced sentence. Taking the deal, they told stories of this specific herbal blend that they had created, concocted from aromatic herbs that seemed very effective in killing all airborne bacteria.
We don’t know whether or not thieves’ story is true, but we know so much more about the Plague now it may have been possible the essential oils could have made a difference. And with such a warm spicy inviting smell it’s a great oil blend to complement your home.
Thieves oil can be used in oil burners (it’s wonderful in our Himalayan Salt Oil Burning Lamps) and diffusers, used in cleaning products, made into a bacteria fighting room spray, worn on lava bracelets or used diluted in a carrier oil on your skin (try the soles of your feet before bed)
Can be used daily to help protect against colds and the flu in over the winter months.
