Thieves- my FAVORITE oil!

So, Thieves is my favorite oil.  Being the germ freak that I am, this one really satisfies me.  I said it before though, and I will say it again.  This scent is strong.  It took me some getting used to.  The first time I put it in the diffuser, I used 10 drops.  I had to turn it off after 10 minutes because I couldn’t stand it.  I tried again with 4 drops, moved to 6 the next time, then 8 and now back to 10.  Now, I could run it all day and not get sick of it.  So, stick with it folks.  Train your body to get used to it, because the benefits are huge!

Young Living and their studies state that, “Thieves is scientifically documented to be highly anti-infectious, antiviral, antibacterial, and antiseptic. It is a safe and natural way to care for your family's health. During an independent study conducted at Weber State University in 1997, this therapeutic blend of oils was proven to kill 99.96% of all airborne bacteria.  The Research showed that Thieves effectively interrupts the life cycle of bacteria and also interferes with the ability of viruses to replicate. That means families no longer need fear outbreaks of MRSA, e-Coli, or Salmonella if they sanitize their home with Thieves and choose their food selectively while using Thieves products to wash their hands before preparation; thoroughly clean their fruits and veggies; and diffuse the oils regularly.”

Read that again, diffusing it kills 99.96% of airborne bacteria!  You can’t beat that.  I diffuse thieves at least 4-5 times a week in my house - especially during the winter.

In addition to this benefit, there are many other uses for thieves. 

1.     Rub thieves on the bottom of your feet for an immunity boost- I do this every time someone in the house doesn’t feel well, and it’s great for the kids before day care or going places.

2.     Put 2-3 drops on a cloth in the dryer to freshen laundry (as a side note, I use lemon for this too).

3.     Diffuse to eliminate household mold -there are studies on this too.

4.     Put in the dishwasher to disinfect dishes- I LOVE doing this too because it makes the dishes smell so good.

There is also a Thieves line household cleaner, which I use as my daily cleaner.  You can also use this to:

5.     Add a capful when rewashing the laundry you forgot for a day or two in the washer to eliminate mildew odors- come on moms, haven’t we ALL done this?!?!?!?

6.     Use diluted to remove grease, food or pet stains from carpet.

7.     Use to remove hard-water buildup or soap scum.

And if that’s not enough, there is more-

8.     There are throat lozenges that I have used when a sore throat was coming on, and they taste delicious (like cinnamon) and work great.

9.     There is a hand sanitizer that I keep in my diaper bag and scrub down the kids hands every time we leave a public place (didn’t I tell you I was a germ freak?!?!).

10.  There are wipes that you can take to wipe down shopping carts etc.  Just like Clorox wipes but non-toxic!

11.  There is a toothpaste that I am obsessed with.  It is a little weird at first (as most natural products are), but now my teeth feel so much cleaner when using that.

12.  The FOAMING soap- LOVE it… I can’t even tell you how many compliments I have received on the smell.

Ok, there are a lot of uses for thieves and the Thieves product line.  If you haven’t tried any of the other Thieves products, I encourage you to try them.  They are soo much better for you than those everyday sanitizers, soaps, and cleaners.  And the research proves they work! 


  1. I'm excited about y'alls new blog! I have never really been an all natural kind of person but your information has really intrigued me! Because I'm not familiar with oils do you have to order online or go to a health store? Looking forward to learning more :)

  2. You order online. If you do it that way, you will save money because you can quality for wholesale pricing. If you want more information, send me an email or if you want to just keep reading the posts until you get more information, thats great too! the information on ordering can be found at the bottom of the essential oils 101 tab. thanks for reading!

  3. This sounds AWESOME. I'm definitely going to give it a try. Thanks!

  4. I use thieves oil to make cleaners for floor and kitchen. I use vinegar, peroxide, water and sometimes a little alcohol with thieves and peppermint. Cleans well and makes house smell nice.

    I also use lavender oil in water for a bedroom spray. Yum and helps me sleep.
