Young Living sure knew what it was doing when it brought us the awesomeness that is Thieves™ essential oil. Thieves™ essential oil has stolen our hearts, and we are not alone in our obsession. The benefits and uses of this proprietary blend are endless. Thieves™ essential oil is so popular, in fact, that there is a whole line of products designed around it!
Oilers likely need no motivation for trying Thieves™ in new and exciting ways. Here are 5 surprising ways to use this magical elixir that we highly recommend trying (if you have not already done so).
Scrub-a-dub, dub Household cleaners from the cleaning aisle at your local big-box store may smell nice, but that is one of the only kind things we can say about them. There are many hidden dangers associated with the chemicals in those products. From phthalates and perchloroethylene to quarternary ammonium compounds, these household cleaners are chock full of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) that can irritate your eyes, nose, and mouth. VOCs also cause more lasting damage to your lungs and other vital organs when long-term exposure is part of the equation.
In our household, if we cannot pronounce the ingredients in a cleaning product, we are not trusting it to preserve the health and well-being of our family. Full stop. Good thing we have the option of using Theives™ for all our cleaning needs. Young Living has made it simple to get your house looking clean and smelling fresh with its household cleaner. It combines the power of Thieves™ essential oil with non-ionic surfactants to help your home sparkle and shine (and smell pretty darn terrific, too).
Prop up your pits No matter who you are, there is one harsh truth in life: we all have stinky armpits. Sweat enough, and there is no stopping your body’s natural mechanism for cooling itself down. Our bodies are amazing, but they also can be somewhat embarrassing. It is not the sweat itself that stinks. It is the bacteria on your skin that becomes a bit aromatic when exposed to that sweat. Walking around holding your nose is not a reasonable solution. Plus, it might draw a bit too much attention to your problem. Commercial deodorants contain many of the same toxic ingredients as household cleaners (and you know where we stand on that). Making your own deodorant is an option. Whatever recipe you use for yours, adding a few drops of Thieves™ essential oil to the mix can help give it an aromatic boost. People will no longer rush out of the room when you – and your pits – are present with the power of Thieves™ working for you.
Deodorize your dishwasher We love our dishwashers, don’t we? They make cleaning up after cooking for us and our families a breeze. Not to mention we are doing our part to protect the environment by reducing our water consumption when we use the dishwasher instead of washing dishes by hand. If your families are anything like ours, they may not always remember to rinse their dishes before putting them in the dishwasher. Do that enough times, and your trusty dishwasher starts to smell like the trash can. Running an empty cycle with a mixture of white vinegar and 2 drops of Thieves™ in the detergent dispenser will cure your dishwasher of all its smells in no time.
Sink the stink We already know our pits are prone to smelling without proper hygiene and care. They are the least of our worries when we are looking for solutions to keeping our homes from smelling like toxic waste sites. There are a few rooms in the house where odors are more troublesome than others. The bathroom is a top contender. Smells happen in the bathroom. It is kind of par for the course. That does not mean you have to take them lying down. Here is a sneaky way to sink the stink in your bathroom without taking up much space. Add a few drops of Thieves™ essential oil to the inside of the cardboard on toilet paper rolls. With every new roll of the TP, icky bathroom smells will be dialed back by the amazing aroma of Thieves™.
Wash your troubles down the drain Feeling a little achy and irritable after a long day at work or running the kids back and forth to all their activities? Add 10 drops of Thieves™ essential oil and one cup of Epsom salts to the bath for a nice, relaxing soak. Not only will your troubles wash right down that drain, but you also will be left smelling fresh and inviting for hours.
