Get Started with Thieves

Legend has it that in the 15th-century, French authorities offered leniency to a group of thieves in exchange for their secret aromatic mixture used while robbing graves. Their formulation of powerful botanicals was believed to protect them while they pillaged communities. Centuries later, we know that this secret blend of clove, rosemary, and other botanicals contained powerful, naturally derived constituents that may have protected this band of bandits.

Legend or not, Thieves® essential oil and Thieves Vitality™ provide both wellness support and the power to care for your home without synthetics or harsh chemicals. Thieves combines Lemon, Cinnamon Bark, Rosemary, Eucalyptus Radiata, and Clove essential oils to create one of the most popular Young Living products.

Thieves has a warm, spicy scent that makes it perfect for diffusing anywhere and everywhere! You can also apply it topically to access the powerful cleansing properties. Using Thieves essential oil is easy because versatile, potent, and effective.
