All About Thieves Essential Oil
I am usually on the go and around a lot of people which means a need a secret weapon in my arsenal, Thieves. If you are a person that is constantly around larger crowds, Thieves Essential Oil is going to be one of your best friends. I am here to tell you WHY!
When the school year comes around I know the kids will be bringing a lot more to school than just their eager smiles, especially in the fall and winter months. There always seems to be a variety of germs getting passed around the school bus and classrooms, and trust me this tends to spread quickly! Think of all the door knobs, pencils, lockers, books, erasers, phones, etc. that will be impacted by the touch of a germ infested hand! As a physical education teacher, I happen to interact with a large variety of equipment that has come in unwashed hand contact with the kids. Enter Thieves essential oil! This has been a little life saver in my day to day.
Let’s get a better idea of Thieves, shall we? In case you were not aware, Thieves Essential Oil blend was inspired by the legend of four thieves who formulated a combination of Clove, Rosemary, Cinnamon, Eucalyptus and Lemon they used while stealing from the dead during the plague. There is also a whole bunch of studies out there on Thieves Essential Oil, I always recommend to my friends to do the research, so if your into the research and science go check it out!
Thieves Essential Oils is a blend of a few 100% therapeutic essential oils and it was actually one of Young Living's original essential oils when the company was founded! I have found that Thieves is vital for supporting a healthy immune system.* It is one that I fell in love with right away and as a teacher, I was so thankful that it was included in the Premium Starter Kit!
How do I use Thieves Essential Oil? Well, this is one that I really love in my Desert Mist or Lantern Diffuser. I enjoy adding a few drops of Lemon, RC or even Orange to the diffuser too. When in the diffuser, it supports keeping the yuck out of the air! I usually have this one going in my office. Plus it’s a lovely, uplifting, and invigorated aroma, perfect for the fall!
Thieves Essential Oil also comes in a Vitality Oil, which is our Dietary Supplement Essential Oil Line. When the Young Living Essential Oils have white labels, it means that we can ingest them if we wanted. I personally feel very comfortable ingesting Young Living Essential Oils because of Seed to Seal, and have been a part of the experience on the farms.
I use Thieves Vitality several different ways to support my overall wellness. I'm just going to share a few examples so you can get an idea, but the uses are endless! I add a drop or two to my Ningxia Red every morning. In the Fall and Winter, I make Thieves Tea, but putting a drop of Thieves Vitality and Lemon Vitality with local honey in hot water, it's delicious. When I am on the go or feeling like something is going to bring me down, I create my wellness capsule which is a few drops of Thieves, Lemon, and Frankincense Vitality with a little fractionated coconut oil to top off my vegetable capsule that I get from amazon! If the classroom sounds unusually loud during the fall, I also apply Thieves to my feet and spine at night or even use it more often. It is also the perfect essential oil to create a lovely scented room or bathroom spray! There are so many ways to use Thieves Essential Oil!
Broad Spectrum of Products
There is a whole spectrum of Thieves products from Young Living that have been inspired by the essential oil. From toothpaste, to hand purifier, to an amazing all-purpose cleaner, it’s easily one of the most popular oils for many reasons.
In addition to using the Thieves Essential Oil, I also use the Thieves Household Products to help my family remove the use of harmful products. Here are a few of my favorite products from the Thieves line up:
Thieves Foaming Hand Soap: Thieves foaming hand soap will cleanse and defend your skin thanks to the essential oil blend.* With pure orange and lemon essential oils, ginkgo biloba and vitamin E, it contains gentle ingredients so it can be used often without drying your skin. HACK: after your Thieves Foaming Hand Soap container in empty, by the larger concentrate and refill those bottles! I love getting the three pack to start because I took one to work and put one in the kitchen then one in the bathroom in my apartment!
Thieves Waterless Hand Purifier: Thieves waterless Hand Purifier is an all-natural hand purifier designed to cleanse and refresh your hands. It can be used by children & adults alike to keep hands clean and promote good hygiene, without the use of water. I love the large bottle for on my desk at school, because it's convenient to use when I am running out of my office. I also love the little travel size, they make trips to the airport, stores, and on the go less scary!
Thieves Spray: Thieves Spray is ideal for use whenever you have to touch something: door handles, keyboards, toilet seats, shopping carts. It’s powerful enough to protect us from dust, mold, and nasty little micro-organisms. It is ideal for traveling or keeping in your purse or backpack.
Thieves Aromabright Toothpaste: Thieves Toothpaste is made with pure, all-natural ingredients, including the essential oil blend. It gently removes stains with the help of natural abrasives. It polishes and brightens the appearance of teeth for a sparkling smile. Peppermint and Spearmint oils combine for a minty-fresh flavor and long-lasting fresh breath. It contains NO fluoride, synthetic dyes, or preservatives.
Thieves Mouthwash: Cool, invigorating taste featuring Peppermint and Spearmint essential oils for long-lasting fresh breath. Contains naturally derived ingredients that leave your whole mouth feeling fresh. No alcohol, synthetic dyes, or artificial flavors. Valuable addition to complete your oral hygiene routine.
Thieves Dish Soap: With naturally derived ingredients, Thieves® Dish Soap effectively cleans your dishes without chemicals, dyes, or synthetics. Young Living pure essential oils—Thieves®, Jade Lemon™, and Bergamot—work with other plant-based ingredients to leave your dishes sparkling clean.

Thieves Laundry Soap can be used in all washers, including high-efficiency, and its highly concentrated formula (6X) will provide around 64 loads with just 32 fl. Oz (946 ml). The laundry soap and our dryer sheets were big ones to switch over to Young Living, traditional laundry soap is full of fragrance which has many known risks.
Thieves Automatic Dishwasher Powder: Give even your dirtiest dishes a spotless clean with just a tablespoon of this ultra-concentrated stuff. A plant-based formula infused with Thieves, Lemongrass, and Orange essential oils, this advanced cleaning formula works hard, smells great, and does it all without synthetic surfactants, artificial fragrances, dyes, or phosphates.This stuff not only tackles even stuck-on food with natural enzymes, but its clean-rinse formulation also dries without water spots, so you’ll never have to polish your clean glasses again.
I love the entire Thieves Line, using them always goes a long way in our house. We typically only use a small amount to get the job done. I love the smell of Thieves and the Thieves products too! When ever I spend the day cleaning, I can breathe the entire time without feeling like I need to have the window open airing the scent out. Thieves is refreshing and purifying while actually continuing to support our body. I never have to worry about my dogs or nephews getting into the products when they are around either which is bonus!
