Thieves Essential Oil

In ancient times, sweet smelling oils were respected more for medicinal properties than scent, while today the opposite is true. Most of modern society is ignoring the greatest attributes of essential oils–their health-giving properties.

The History of Thieves

Europeans began producing essential oils in the 12th century. During the Plague of the 15th century, certain thieves were able to rob the dead without fear of becoming infected by the terrible disease. After being captured and charged with robbing the dead and dying victims of the plague, the thieves were offered a deal. The magistrate offered them leniency if they would reveal how they managed to avoid contracting the dreaded infection, in spite of their close proximity with the infected corpses. They disclosed that they were perfumers and spice traders, and that they had rubbed themselves with a concoction of aromatic herbs (cinnamon, and clove).

percent kill rate against airborne bacteria!

When Ancient Tradition Links with Modern Society:  Thieves™  Blend

Fast forward to the 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. Thieves Blend was found to have a 99.6 percent kill rate against airborne bacteria.  According to the Essential Oils Desk Reference (Essential Science Publishing, 2006, p. 125), Studies conducted at Weber State University during 1997 showed the antibacterial effectiveness of this blend against airborne microorganisms.”

I am not a doctor and do not intend to give any type of medical advice in the following post.

I was recently very pleased when I read an article in the NY Times regarding the power of cinnamon essential oil compared to chemical based anti-bacterial hand sanitizers and soaps and the very negative effect these last types of products have on our health and environment.


The Oil mentionned in that NY Times article is Thieves Essential Oil blend. It is a blend of Clove, Lemon, Cinnamon, Bark, Eucalyptus, Rosemary. This blend not only contains cinnamon but also some of the strongest and most effective anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-fungal oils.
