Out of all of my 17 oils, I have used Thieves the most. It is that yucky time of the year, where everyone is coughing, sniffling, blowing their nose, spraying germs in my line of fire. I have battled either a cold, allergies, or a little bug at least 3 times since I have started using oils, and let me tell you, my little "sicknesses" have only lasted 3 days, at the max. I am going to go ahead and thank my little Thieves bottle for that ;)
This is a blend of clove, lemon, cinnamon, eucalyptus, and rosemary. It has a 99.96% kill rate against airborne microorganisms, whoa! It is a germ fighting machine and I just love it.
As soon as I feel as though I am coming down with something, I put just one drop in a glass of water and swallow it down. If I already am feeling sick, I make a little Thieves Tea. (1 drop Thieves, 3 drops Lemon, honey, and a mug of hot water).
Is it only to be ingested, you ask? Nope! I am disinfecting Delilah's bath toys right as we speak ;) I put her toys in a bowl, fill it with water and add 4 drops of Thieves. I don't have to worry about any bleach leftover on her toys and I know they are clear of any unwanted germs.
I apply a blend of oils to the bottom of Delilah's feet right now, as well. Like I mentioned before, it is that time of year and being in day care, it would be great to catch a break. Just another reminder, make sure you dilute the oils in a carrier oil and always take precaution when using oils with the itty bittys. (1 Tablespoon coconut oil, 2 drops Lavender, 1 drop Lemon, 1 drop Frankincense, and 1 drop Thieves.)
My next adventure will be to make my own hand sanitizer with Thieves, don't worry, I will let you know how it goes!
