Fall in Love with Thieves: Part 1 

With the Fall season right around the corner, we can’t help but be excited for all things Thieves. Anyone else? Im glad you are hear to join us as we Fall in Love with Thieves: Part 1

The scent of Thieves alone just screams “cozy Fall” but the properties and purpose of this versatile blend make it even more beneficial for our homes and bodies. But Young Living didn’t stop with one delicious oil blend and leave it at that. Oh no. They have spoiled us with an entire line of Thieves household products that belong on everyone’s shopping list each and every season. 

Thieves, of course, all starts with Gary Young. Gary formulated Thieves over 25 years ago, as a result of his studying at Warwick University in London, England, in 1991. He spent hours and hours in the London Library researching essential oils and their history and thank goodness for his time spent there as it brought us our beloved Thieves Essential Oil blend. 

This blend was inspired by the legend of four 15th-century French thieves who formulated an aromatic combination composed mainly of clove and rosemary, along with other botanicals. They would cover themselves in this formula while robbing the dead and dying in order to protect themselves from sickness and disease. So if you’ve ever wondered where Thieves got its name, well there you have it! 

When asked how Gary formulated his proprietary blend, he said, “ I have read 17 different versions of the thieves’ story… I was led to four key botanicals that were mentioned again and again. Those ingredients were clove, cinnamon, rosemary, and lemon- four of the same ingredients that make up Young Living’s Thieves essential oil blend today. To round out my modern Thieves formula and add another element of protection, I included Eucalyptus Radiata, which would have been rare to find in those days.” –D. Gary Young

When we say these products were made for our good, we truly mean it. So much research and heart have gone into the creation of our essential oils, and the formulation of Thieves is evidence of that! 

From the creation of our Thieves blend came a very important, must-have product for so many oilers, Thieves All Purpose Cleaner. Many of our store-bought cleaners are riddled with toxins, some we don’t even know are affecting our bodies, so making the switch to Thieves cleaner is a super simple swap that will not only clean your home but support your well-being! If you only make one change in your household, let it be this!

Thieves All Purpose Cleaner combines naturally derived, plant-based ingredients, along with Thieves and Lemon essential oils to provide exceptional home cleaning and purifying power. You’re going to want to be sure to use this multipurpose solution for virtually any surface in your home or office. We love that:

  • It doesn’t streak glass, windows, or mirrors.
  • ONE cleaner does it all!
  • It smells delightful with a citrusy, spicy aroma.
  • It safely cleans toilets, countertops, floors, glass, toys, high-chairs, car interiors, etc.
  • This is the ONLY cleaner you need in your toxin-free home!

One bottle of concentrate can last you 6-12 months, depending on the size of your home, and of course, how often you clean so be sure to grab a bottle now and enjoy it for months to come! 

If you spend any time on social media, you’ve probably seen so many people raving about our Thieves Fruits and Veggie Wash + Spray. This wash is infused with Thieves, DiGize, and Purification essential oils, removing the pesticides and toxins from your fresh food surfaces. We like to fill one side of the sink with water, pour in a cap or two of wash, add the produce we just picked up, let them sit for a few minutes, rinse and store them in the fridge until ready for eating.

But- you don’t always have a sink and a big ole’ bottle of wash, so go ahead and throw a spray in your purse, your desk at work, your car- everywhere you snack on the go and simply spray your produce down before consuming! Infused with Thieves and Lime essential oils, this is a great option for travel or small batches of food. Spray on, rinse off, eat, and enjoy! 

It’s easy to say that every Thieves product is our favorite, but the Thieves AromaBright Toothpaste may truly be our favorite product offered in the Thieves line. This fresh-tasting toothpaste contains no sulfates, synthetic dyes, artificial flavors, or preservatives, is infused with Thieves, Peppermint, Spearmint, and Cinnamon Bark essential oils, and supports healthy-looking gums and teeth, removes stains, and helps with longer-lasting fresh breath. Can we get an amen?

But it doesn’t stop there, if you’re going this far, go. All. The. Way.

Follow up with some Thieves floss, saturated TWICE with Thieves, and made from strong fibers that glide easily between teeth.

And be sure to finish off with some Thieves Mouthwash. You’re going to feel like a Christmas ornament exploded in your mouth and we mean that is the best way possible! We totally think you’re going to love it!
