Thieves Essential Oil

Thieves® essential oil is a powerful combination of Clove, Lemon, Cinnamon, Eucalyptus Radiata, and Rosemary essential oils for an aromatic blend that fills any space with a rich, spicy aroma. Inspired by the legend of four 15th-century French thieves who formulated a special aromatic combination composed of clove, rosemary, and other botanicals used while robbing the dead and dying, Thieves is one of Young Living’s most popular products.

With the benefits of Thieves oil including cleaning power and an irresistibly spicy scent, Young Living offers it as an essential oil blend and as an important ingredient in a full range of home cleaning and personal care products, from dish soap to toothpaste. Looking to make your home smell as clean as it looks? Diffuse Thieves oil throughout the house for an aroma that makes every room smell more like fall baking than harsh cleaning formulas.

How to Use

Topical: Dilute 1 drop with 4 drops of V-6™ or olive oil. Test on small area of skin on underside of arm. Apply to desired area as needed.

Aromatic: Diffuse up to 10 minutes 3 times daily.

Thieves essential oil uses:

  • Refresh musty carpets by adding 5 drops of Thieves to a cup of baking soda; combine well and let sit overnight until the oil is absorbed. Sprinkle over carpets and vacuum thoroughly.
  • Diffuse 6–8 drops of Thieves to help create an environment of peace and security. Customize your Thieves experience by adding a few drops of Orange, Tangerine, or Nutmeg essential oil.

For Young Living’s July Promo, at 190PV you will receive an entire 15ml bottle of Thieves essential oil blend. Thieves is an oil we talk a lot about in Young Living, heck, we have an entire line, well lines, of products featuring the Thieves blend. So what more can I possible teach you?
I thought I would have a little fun with this and give you some fun facts about each of the five oils featured in Thieves: Rosemary, Eucalyptus Radiata, Clove, Cinnamon Bark, and Lemon.
Let’s start with Lemon. Lemon essential oil is extracted through cold pressing, as all citrus oils are. This simply means that the rind of the lemon, not the fruit, is penetrated while rolling over a trough. Tiny pouches which contain the essential oil is pierced. Cold pressed is derived from the German words “kalt geschlagen” which literally means cold pummeled. Also, if it takes 75 lemons to produce just ONE 15ml bottle of YL Lemon essential oil, if the oils in Thieves were evenly split, so 1/5 of each (I am not sure the exact percentage of each, this exercise is just for fun), it would take 15 lemons to create the Thieves blend.
Clove originates in the Spice Islands, and clove trees are fairly small, they only grow up to about nine feet and they grow best by the sea. Clove is extremely high in the chemical constituent eugenol and when I think of clove, I think of the holidays and sticking clove buds into oranges.
Did you know there are hundreds of types of cinnamon, and four main varieties? This was new information to me! The four main types of Cinnamon are: Ceylon, Cassia, Saigon, Korintje Cinnamon and you can identify them by color, taste, aroma, and appearance.
There are also over 900 different types of eucalyptus and eucalyptus is native to Australia. Young Living has three different types of eucalyptus single oils that we offer, can you name what they are?
The story behind rosemary is interesting and new to me…According to myth, the Virgin Mary is said to have spread her blue cloak over a white-blossomed rosemary bush when she was resting, and the flowers turned blue. The shrub then became known as the “Rose of Mary”.
I hope that today you learned something new and interesting about each of the five oils that make up our wonderful Thieves blend!
