Thieves blend, discovered to have been in use since the 1600’s, is a highly anti-microbial and anti-viral blend of single essential oils thought to help protect against influenza and other viral infections.
Our Thieves Spiritual oil Blend has been specifically created to mimic the blend of essential oils first discovered to be used in the 15th century. This blend has been used for centuries to help cure and prevent colds, swelling of the joints and cancerous lesions. Certain studies suggest that the essential oils contained help to destroy bacteria and viruses.
This blend may be useful if a drop or two is gently massaged into the temples, pulses of the body and soles of the feet of robust adults – this is a neat blend of essential oils and must be used extremely sparingly. Use in a burner or vaporiser to help disinfect a room, or add to a base cream or oil for more general and safer use on the skin.
The carrier oil and essential oils in this blend have been selected to mimic the blend used since the 1600’s in ancient Europe.
This ready to use blend has been created following the guidelines for modern usage of essential oils and should be used sparingly in its neat form. Extreme care should be taken when using this blend on the elderly, infirm and very young and the blend should be diluted in these cases. Do NOT use if you are pregnant, as safety of use has not been established in pregnancy.
‘Less is more’ is a common rule of thumb when using essential oils and essential oil blends. Always remember to do a skin patch test before using an essential oil blend: e.g. rub a drop of the essential oil blend behind one ear and wait for 20 minutes to see if you have an adverse reaction. If you do, wash the area with warm water and soap and rinse copiously. Do NOT use the blend any further and consult a doctor if any unpleasant reaction lasts. The blend may stain fabric, wood and certain metals and plastic. It is suggested that a sample of the material should be tested first. Care should be taken when using the blend as it is oily and will make surfaces slippery.
Our Thieves Spiritual oil Blend can be added to a burner or vaporiser to infuse the surrounding area with the therapeutic mixed aroma of the carefully selected hydrophobic liquids. This is thought by some to help eradicate the spread of germs.
A small amount of our Thieves Spiritual Blend can be used in a bath or as a massage oil. This is thought to be beneficial in treating viral and bacterial infections, edema and skin lesions.
