Cleaning Your House from the Inside Out
by Ashley Knight
Everyone has to clean their house. Some of us enjoy it, some of us dread it but it must be done in order to keep everyone healthy. Our health is not only dependent on our environment, but more importantly our health depends on how we treat our bodies. I believe a cleaner, healthier life starts with the products and foods we put into our body, on our body and use in our homes. I am passionate about this for myself and my family and it’s why I started using essential oils.
However even though I’m passionate about health…
…that doesn’t mean we are always healthy. As I write this article, my husband is laid up on the couch with an illness and I’m guessing it’s viral (but hey I’m not a doctor), so I’m doing what I can to help him heal and protect the rest of us from catching it. My first step is applying Thieves essential oil blend on everyone’s feet at least once daily if not a few times, diffusing it, and adding the Thieves Vitality™oil blend to my water. You might be wondering why, I’m telling you all of this when this article is about cleaning your house, so let me get to the point – Thieves Essential Oil blend is a master at boosting your immune system and cleaning everything!
The history of the Thieves essential oil blend is almost as good as the product itself. Young Living Founder D. Gary Young formulated this proprietary blend as a result of his studying at the Warwick University in London, England in 1991. He said he read 17 different versions of the Thieves story and many of the legends took place in the 15th century and there were four key ingredients included many times and they were clove, cinnamon, rosemary and lemon. Gary said, “The legends speculate that the thieves believed that wearing this special combination of botanicals provided protection while they were stealing. French authorities recognized that there was such value in this mixture that upon the thieves’ capture, they received a more merciful punishment on condition that they divulge the ingredients in their secret formula to the king.” He also added Eucalyptus Radiata to our modern day Thieves blend in addition to the clove, cinnamon bark, rosemary and lemon.
Together these oils are a powerful combination that I’ve grown to love and trust. Not only does it fill our house with the most lovely cinnamon scent, it boosts our immune systems and cleans the air as we diffuse it. Say goodbye to those nasty cinnamon candles that only add carcinogens and artificial smells to the air, and say hello to the delicious, welcoming and healthful smell of Thieves. I just love knowing our house smells good and is making us healthier.
Although my kids are too young to attend school, they are in church childcare three times a week. I love kids however I still don’t understand why they want to put their mouths on everything. Therefore as part of our routine, I’ve added Thieves essential oil blend and olive oil into a bottle with a rollerball on top so that I can quickly roll in on their feet before putting socks and shoes on to head to church. This way I’m boosting their immune systems for their inevitable contact with other kids germs whether that be from toys, hands or who knows what else toddlers/babies decide they should put their mouth on.
There are so so many uses for the Thieves essential oil blend, here is a list of more uses winter germs, scratchy throats, household germs, gum health, mold, lung support, mouth sores, fungal skin and toe infections, and more.
I also want share testimonials from others who had amazing success with the Thieves essential oil blend:
I live with my brother who has major health problems, heart, diabetic, lung problems. He was very skeptic about my essential oils. Every 3-4 months he was taking antibiotics for the flu or whatever. This was not helping his immune system. I was also sick and tired catching what he had. I found out about Thieves and I thought I would give it a go. I have never looked back. I have been free for 2 years of any colds or flu. At one time last year when I knew my brother was coming down with the flu, I asked him to try Thieves on his feet at night. He thought I was nuts. To pacify me, he did this for the next 4 days. No antibiotics. A few months later, the same thing (he is also a Librarian and in contact with the public). Gave him the oil. No flu. The next time he actually came to me and asked me for it. He still thinks I am mad with these oils, but he now has a bottle of Thieves on his bedside table. He has actually told other people about it!
The thieves essential oil is one of the ways we boost our immune system in order to keep our bodies clean on the inside so next week I will be sharing about how we keep our house clean, and minimize germs!
