Thieves oil is one of those rare gems that you come across every now and then. i've been playing with and experimenting with essential oils now for over twenty years now and the healing results that i have seen and experienced first hand using different oils is impressive to say the least. Coming into the winter months, coughs and colds and throat infections are common. Well nature and a little bit of human intelligence has provided a ripper of a remedy and i would love you to know about it. It's a blend of oils distributed by a therapeutic oil company called Young Living oils and the blend is called Thieves Oil.
Heres the blurb from Young Livings web site: Thieves® was created based on research about four thieves in France who protected themselves with cloves, rosemary, and other aromatics while robbing plague victims. This proprietary blend was university tested and found to be highly effective fortifying defenses.
Clove is the highest-scoring single ingredient ever tested for its antioxidant capacity on the ORAC scale. Clove has an approximate ORAC of 10,786,875 (TE/L). TE/L is expressed as micromole Trolox equivalent per litre.
i'm pretty hard-core with my use of it apparently, but i joyfully have to say "get over it guys it serves no-one having your body rule your mind". So not giving any advice, here's me just sharing how i use it.
When you've finished gargling, i believe the best option is to swallow the oil. It's therapeutic grade which means it can be safely ingested in small amounts. The oils are also of benefit to rid the body of parasites like worms. Worms dont like Thieves oil. The regular practice of this certainly arcs up the system. The eyes awaken, the mind clears, the awareness increases instantly its good stuff and well worth the initial sensitivity some experience. Best of all are the results. The feeling of a clean mouth with fresh breath is priceless. This stuff literally destroys infection. We've recently had floods here in Queensland Australia and moldy houses were becoming a health hazard. A couple of radio interviews later and everybody was rushing out buying clove oil to vapourise in the house and guess what? No more moldy wall!
At the first sign of a niggly throat, do the drop of Thieves on the tongue, teeth and the gargling bit, but also rub a couple of drops of the Thieves onto the soles of your feet throughout the day. Also i like to make a Thieves drink.
A drink thats medicinal and tastes great. If you are going to give it to children I only use 1 drop of Thieves and before giving it to my darlin's i blow over the top of the mug to disperse the oils fumes that rest on the top. Have a go and youll know where Im coming from. Also if you wish to add extra alkalising factor, add a squeeze of fresh lemon juice. Repeat the process at least three times a day and those simple steps will have you saying good bye to a sore throat and possible a couple of days feeling miserable quick as a wink. Wishing you all the best health and vitality can offer!
