D. Gary Young, the founder of Young Living, created this formula with: clove, cinnamon, rosemary, eucalyptus radiata and lemon!
It gets it’s name from a legend that speculates that thieves believed that wearing this special combination of botanicals provided protection while they were stealing. French authorities recognized that there was such value in this mixture that upon the thieves’ capture, they received a more merciful punishment on condition that they divulge the ingredients in their secret formula to the king.
Here are just a few different ways to use it around the house….
*Diffuse to bring a spicy, welcoming fragrance to any room of your house.
*Add a drop or two of Thieves to mop water to add extra cleaning power and a fresh scent.
*Make a deep-cleaning scrub by combining baking soda, Thieves Household Cleaner, and 2 drops of Thieves to form a thick paste.
*After washing your clothes with Thieves Laundry Soap, add 4–5 drops of Thieves onto a washcloth and tumble with the laundry in the dryer for extra Thieves aroma.
*Refresh smelly carpets by adding 5 drops of Thieves to a cup of baking soda; combine well and let sit overnight until the oil is absorbed. Sprinkle over carpets and vacuum thoroughly.
*Clean your dishwasher by running an empty cycle with white vinegar and 2 drops of Thieves in the detergent dispenser.
*Add a drop to a cotton ball and stash it in your air vents to circulate the scent throughout your home.
*Scrub your sink with a few drops to vanish those lingering odors.
