Thieves oil is a blend of 5 basic essential oils. It was said to be worn in Europe by a band of thieves during the time of the plague so they could rob the homes of the sick, without getting infected themselves.
This is a potent antimicrobial team that can be used to protect your family from illnesses such as colds flu, pneumonia, bronchitis and sore throats:
200 drops of Cinnamon
175 drops of Lemon
100 drops of Cinnamon Bark
75 drops of Eucalyptus
50 drops of Rosemary
mix all ingredients well and bottle in opaque glass. If you have it in a dropper bottle make sure to keep it upright. The strong oils will eat up the rubber stopper if it is stored on it’s side! It is better kept with a screw top lid to store.
To prepare a 4 oz spray bottle for use as a hand sanitizer or room clearing/ disinfecting spray:
Add 1/2 ounce Jojoba Oil
1 ounce Witch Hazel
50 drops of Thieves mixture
fill the bottle with distilled water, shake before use to incorporate, do not store in direct sunlight
This makes a big batch! You can reduce it proportionally to your needs.
