In this day, when dangerous diseases and virulent viruses challenge our health from all sides, it is imperative that we build a "Zone of Protection" around home and family. I imagine that Zone as a force field so strong that viruses, bacteria, and sickness bounce off harmlessly. It protects me everywhere I go, because I use the Thieves Family of Products. This collection of home and personal care products from Young Living will boost your immune system and reduce the spread of germs. This newsletter shows many of the Thieves products that Young Living customers depend on to create their own Essential Zones of Protection. You can too-at work, when traveling-wherever you go. But first, let me tell you the story of Thieves.
Young Living's Thieves essential oil blend was created based on the historical tale of a band of thieves in 15th century France. These men, who may have been spice merchants, successfully avoided contracting the plague by rubbing themselves with cloves, rosemary, cinnamon and other aromatics on their bodies before robbing their victims.₁ After researching numerous stories written about these robbers and other medieval texts, D. Gary Young developed the formula now known as Thieves essential oil blend. And now, today's scientists confirm that the same essential oils the robbers used are powerful antimicrobial agents.
"In recent years (1987-2001) a large number of essential oils and their constituents have been investigated for their antimicrobial properties... in more than 500 reports. Essential oils of spices and herbs (Thyme, Oregano, Mint, Cinnamon, Sage, and Clove) were found to possess the strongest antimicrobial properties among the many tested.₂
Fast forward - 20th century, Young Living Essential Oils begins testing Thieves™ Blend, a proprietary combination of cinnamon, clove and rosemary essential oils for its potent antimicrobial properties. Now the power of Thieves can be found in over a dozen products, from toothpaste and mouthwash to cleaning products, hand soaps and even throat lozenges. The Thieves Family of Products offers safe, natural alternatives to toxic, mass-marketed personal and home care products. Read on for quick tips on using the personal care products at home or on the go.
In the morning and at bedtime, apply 1-2 drops of Thieves to the soles of your feet. Then, cup hands around your nose and inhale deeply for 2-3 minutes.
Clean teeth, fresh mouth, no harsh abrasives or alcohol are reasons you'll like all three Dentarome toothpastes and Fresh Essence Plus Mouthwash. However, what you'll appreciate is that they deliver Thieves oil directly to the gumline. According to periodontist Robert Hoskyns, DMD, "certain essential oils kill the bacteria around the gumline which cause gingivitis and periodontal disease. The essential oils' primary benefit to patients is the acceleration of gum healing and shrinkage due to their antibacterial action.'
