Winter Essentials Series: The Top 3 Oils I Never Leave Home Without During The Winter Months
When it’s cold outside it’s hard for your body to fight off germs and airborne viruses. Sometimes you just need to give your immune system a little boost to keep yourself from getting sick. That’s why I love essential oils. I’m not saying they prevent or cure illnesses, but they do support your body’s natural defenses and just like mom’s homemade soup or herbal remedies, these oils are great to have on hand for making your own natural remedies. Take a look at the 3 oils I always have on hand all winter long.
#1: Thieves™ Blend Product Line: Boost Immune System – Naturally
This is probably the most powerful oil when it comes to killing airborne bacteria and germs.
The story behind the Thieves Oil blend: During the Black Plague of the 15th century, a group of robbers protected themselves from contracting the very contagious plague by rubbing themselves with spices, herbs, and oils. When Young Living’s founder, Gary Young researched this story, he learned that the oils that could have been used during this time would have come from plants and herbs such as lemon, rosemary, clove and cinnamon. By blending these oils, the Thieves blend was born. When tested by research scientists at Weber State University, it was shown that Thieves had a kill rate of 99.96% on airborne bacteria!
How To Use Thieves: A couple of drops of Thieves on the bottom of your feet in the morning and lemon in your water glass at lunch can go a long way in boosting your immune system and preventing you from catching the office cold.
In addition to the Thieves essential oil blend, Young Living has a complete line of Thieves products to provide multifaceted protection all year round:
- Thieves 15 ml
- Thieves Waterless Hand Purifier
- Thieves Foaming Hand Soap
- Thieves Spray
