Thieves Essential Oil Blend

Thieves® essential oil is a legendary blend of purifying essential oils, Clove, Lemon, Cinnamon Bark, Eucalyptus radiata, and Rosemary, known for immune support and cleansing properties when taken internally and refreshing breathing experiences aromatically and topically.*

Thieves® essential oil blend is a powerful combination of Clove, Lemon, Cinnamon Bark, Eucalyptus Radiata, and Rosemary essential oils. Formulated by Young Living founder, D. Gary Young, this blend was created from research recorded in the archives of the British Museum library about a group of 14th century European perfumers and spice traders who rubbed oils on themselves while they robbed the dead and dying. The first essential oil blend to be scientifically evaluated in a university research laboratory, Thieves has a rich, spicy aroma, and is a key ingredient in our Thieves Home Collection – your go to for an invigorating clean and healthy home. Thieves Vitality offers the key benefits of overall wellness and support for a healthy immune system.* Thieves and Thieves Vitality are the same essential oil blend.

Diffusing Notes

These are approximate drops.  Adjust recipes to your needs.  If a recipe is too strong for you, add fewer drops.  Do you need more?  Just add more, but no more than 8-12 drops for all of our diffusers with the exception of the Aria diffuser which requires 15-25 drops.

Tip:  When you first begin diffusing, start with less essential oil than listed in the recipes and build to more as desired.  You should give your body time to adjust to the essential oils.  Almost all the Young Living diffusers are ultrasonic which provides a cool-mist humidifier along with the essential oils.  These diffusers are safe to run all day.  Pay attention to the size of the room because the size will impact the intensity of diffusing.  Nebulizers and atomizers are different than ultrasonic diffusers because they do not use water.  For these, note the time limit for diffusing stated on each individual oil bottle.

DIY Garbage Disposal Fresheners

Ever wonder what that funky smell is coming from your kitchen sink? We’re not exactly sure what it is either, but we do have a solution: DIY garbage disposal fresheners!

This easy DIY takes less than an hour, including cleaning up after! It’s natural and the fresheners will make your garbage disposal smell as fresh and clean as the day you bought it.

Ingredients:
• 1 cup baking soda
• ½ cup salt
• ¾ cup liquid Castile soap
• 30 drops essential oil
• Measuring spoon (we used a tablespoon)

Directions:
1. Combine baking soda and salt in a bowl.
2. Add Castile soap and essential oils. (See our scent ideas below!)
3. Add water, 1 tablespoon at a time, until the mixture reaches the texture of wet sand. (YL tip: If you add too much water, the mixture won’t pack together or dry properly. Add more baking soda and salt to get the texture of wet sand.)
4. Pack the mixture into the measuring spoon. (YL tip: To get your freshener out of the measuring spoon, tap the spoon lightly on the counter until the contents slide out. Be careful! The mixture hasn’t dried yet, so it might be fragile.)
5. Let the fresheners dry for about 24 hours.
6. Store in a sealed glass jar and keep dry.

To use:
Put 1-3 fresheners in your garbage disposal. Turn the faucet on a steady cold stream and run the disposal for up to 1 minute.

Scent combinations:
• Classic Clean: 20 drops Thieves® and 10 drops Lemon
• Citrus Herb: 10 drops Rosemary, 10 drops Grapefruit, 5 drops Lemon, and 5 drops Peppermint
• Freshen Up: 10 drops Purification®, 10 drops Eucalyptus Radiata, and 10 drops Spearmint
