|I've been thinking of buying this myself, since I've heard so many people rave about it. What is the most common way it's used? rubbed in the feet, inhaled? is this to stimulate the immune system? any other benefits? Can it be used when pregnant, or on children (topically)? I'm kind of clueless, but I think the idea of it is great and I'd like to try it. I'm probably not looking to take it internally though.|
We use Thieves Oil in a diffuser b/c it's antibacterial/antiviral properties help kill airborne pathogens. I also carry it in a spray bottle and mist our space in public places - I've even used it to wipe off phones, computer keyboards, etc out in public -(I know! I'm neurotic!) I've also used it topically on myself - super diluted in a carrier oil.
I wouldn't feel comfortable using it on small children - but I know many ppl who do.
Perhaps others will chime in w/ their experience.
I really love the way it smells.
So glad to find this thread! Have been looking for a Thieve's Oil recipe since I saw the NY Times article the other day.
I have been searching through post threads about essential oils to see if I can offer any advice.
First, I'd like to mention that Young Living therapeutic grade Thieves EO is very hot. So if you are to apply it to the skin, it must be diluted. Thieves is actually considered to be a supplement (it has a Supplemental Facts label on the bottle). Since it can be taken internally, I also enjoy a drop mixed in with my tea.
Young Living also sells a complete Thieves product line including the Household Cleaner, hand sanitizer, lozenges, mouthwash, toothpaste, floss, spray, Inner Defense. I love all the products that contain Thieves as well - especially the household cleaner and hand sanitizer! If you are looking for a toothpaste that is non-toxic and effective, Thieves Aromabright toothpaste is fantastic!
