Thieves Oil

Thieves Oil Blend is another amazing oil offered by Young Living Products…It was created from research about four thieves during the 15th-century plague who used cloves, rosemary, and other aromatics to protect themselves while robbing plague victims. (Grave Robbers) Thieves is a proprietary blend of pure essential oils tested at Weber State University, Ogden, Utah, and found to have a 99.96 percent effective rate against airborne bacteria. This blend is an integral ingredient in Dentarome and Dentarome Plus toothpastes. How to use: Diffuse for short periods of time (1/2 hour or less) in the work or home environment. Apply to the bottom of the feet or dilute with V-6 Mixing Oil or Massage Oil Base for a stimulating massage under the arms and on the chest at the base of the neck.
