Way back in the 1400's in the time of The Plague, authorities noticed that thieves were stealing items from the homes of the deceased. This was puzzling to them because everyone that came in contact with someone with the Plague also died. They could not figure out how these thieves were staying alive after being exposed to the Plague. Once caught, the magistrate offered the thieves grace if they would explain how they were able to avoid contracting this life ending disease. It turns out that these thieves were Apothecary perfumers and spice traders who knew what to use to avoid getting the disease. Therefore the name “Thieves” was born and made into a blend by D. Gary Young, founder of Young Living Essential Oils in the 1980's.
Thieves Essential Oil blend is made up of Clove, Lemon, Cinnamon Bark, Eucalyptus Radiata, and Rosemary oils. It contains the naturally occurring constituents limonene, cinnamaldehyde, and eucalyptol (among others) in a concentrated dose of “yes, please” perks for body and spirit. With a warm, sweet scent that’ll have you hooked at first drop, you’ll want to have it everywhere in your life—and you can! Thieves is more than an essential oil blend: it's an experience, and an amazing one at that! Although Thieves is a natural choice for your diffuser, you will love the other ways that you can use this oil and it's related products. The sweet and spicy blend has many uses such as:
