I am sitting here drinking my morning coffee and decided to try a drop of Thieves in it. Yum!
I don’t know about you, but I love Thieves. Actually, I expect that you love it too. What’s not to love? It smells great, cleans amazingly well and tastes great. If I was only allowed one oil it would be Thieves. Hands down! Luckily, I don’t have to choose.
The story behind Thieves is an interesting one. The theory is that during the Bubonic Plague four thieves went from house to house robbing people who were struck by the illness. The thieves didn’t get sick though. As part of their sentencing, the thieves agreed to let the court know what they were doing in order to not get sick when they went into houses that clearly had illness in them. They gave up the recipe and now we can all benefit.
Thieves can be used in food, diffusers, topical concoctions and cleaning products. I used a homemade Thieves cleaner in my bathroom today and not only does it smell great it is shiny! The mirrors are streak free and the faucets are gleaming.
