Young Living recommend using 6-8 drops of Thieves in a diffuser. Although they don’t specify how much water you would mix this with, and that’s an important factor.

What’s in Thieves Essential Oil?

Thieves essential oil has been trademarked by Young Living, although there are some other oils going by the same or similar names to try and get your business.

I’m looking at the Young Living Thieves essential oil therefore, the ingredients are:

  • Clove bud oil
  • Citrus lemon oil
  • Cinnamon bark oil
  • Eucalyptus leaf oil
  • Rosemary leaf oil

I’ve covered most of these oils individually before and they are all wonderfully enjoyable oils. However, together they blend well and offer some strong wellness properties.

To mention just a few uses, thieves is used to aid digestion, nourish skin, boost your immune system, calm and relax you, and is very effective at relieving the symptoms of colds and congestion.

Ways to Use Thieves Essential Oil

Diffusing – I’ve explained how many drops to add to your diffuser above. Diffuse around the home to create a relaxing and calming environment.

Try diffusing at night too if you want to sleep better. Add some lavender for a more powerful sleeping aid.

Topically – Mix 1 drop of Thieves with 4 drops of a carrier oil to make a massage blend you can use on your skin.

Always test a small area of skin first for any sensitivity issues.

Cleaning – An often overlooked use for essential oils is cleaning around the home. Mix a few drops with baking soda and you have a powerful cleaning agent you can use on carpets, mattresses, and so on.

You can also add to dryer sheets for fresh smelling clothes, the dishwasher to remove odors… the uses are endless.
