Need a Way to Prevent Catching a Cold or the Flu? Try Thieves Essential Oil
Legend has it that in the 1800's during the plague epidemic, 4 herb & spice merchants began robbing the dead but somehow never became infected themselves. When they were finally arrested, they were offered leniency in exchange for the secret of how they managed to prevent themselves from catching the highly contagious disease. The secret turned out to be a special formula they had concocted using cinnamon, clove, eucalyptus, and rosemary. It was quickly distributed to all the people & soon after the epidemic was over. This concoction became known as Thieves Oil.
Thieves Oil is still being used today as a powerful anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-septic and anti-fungal. It is also used as a hand sanitizer, rubbed on the chest and neck and used in a diffuser to protect from cold, coughs and flu. People who have been diffusing this powerful essential oil into the air during cold and flu season have noticed a huge decrease in illness for their families.
Here is the recipe:
Approximately 20 drops of the blend with 2 Tablespoons of coconut oil before using topically.
The undiluted mixture can be added directly to a diffuser for a great way to fight infection, use 5-10 drops. Make a disinfecting spray with it by adding 3 drops to 3 ounces of water in a spray bottle. You can use the diluted Thieves Oil as a hand sanitizer, rubbed on the bottom of feet to keep away cold and flu, rubbed on areas you may be having aches and pains, rubbed on the chest and neck to protect.
