Many years ago, I first heard about the famous “thieves” of the 16th century who went around grave-robbing during the time of the great plagues in Europe. They were able to carry out their escapades and escape contracting the sickness by wearing a combination of dried herbs around their necks. This is our essential oil version of the thieves blend.
Directions: Apply one drop the bottoms of feet or back of neck at first signs of cold or flu symptoms, and then every 3-4 hours. Continue for a few hours after symptoms subside. May use on a diffuser necklace, tissue, cottonball or other type of diffuser. Even if you’re not sick, use as preventative when going out in public during cold & flu season. Do not get near eyes.
Ingredients: essential oils of Thyme, Clove, Eucalyptus, Lemon, Rosemary,
Comes in a 5ml dropper bottle with a reducer orifice (meaning you can pour drops from it). Each bottle has approximately 100 drops.
Cautions: Essential oils are not just fragrances but very powerful medicines and should be used responsibly. Please test on a small area of your skin first to make sure you are not sensitive. With the exception of the bottoms of your feet, applying a small amount of olive oil to your skin along with the essential oils is recommended if the blend does not already have oil in it. Keep out of reach of children.
