The Many Ways to Use Thieves Essential Oil

by Cynthia on September 17, 2011

Thieves Essential Oil is a potent blend of Eucalyptus radiata, cinnamon bark, clove, lemon and rosemary therapeutic grade essential oils.  It is best known for it’s anti-microbial and immune-boosting properties and there are as many ways to use Thieves as there are people who use it.  Here are a few of my favorite Thieves applications:

Thieves Essential Oil

  • Add a drop of Thieves in a glass of warm water and gargle to soothe a sore throat.
  • Rub a few drops on the bottom of the feet to boost immune system.
  • Add a few drops in washing machine to disinfect and leave clothes smelling fresh.
  • Add baking soda and a few drops of Thieves in your dishwasher soap container for dishes that are clean, clean, clean.
  • Create your own disinfecting floor wash by adding a few drops of Thieves Essential Oil to a bucket of 1/2 cup of white vinegar mixed with 4 cups of hot water.
  • Use a solution of 1/2 cup white vinegar and a few drops of Thieves to clean your toilet.
  • A couple of drops of Thieves essential oil will dissolve gummy label adhesive.
  • A couple of drops of Thieves on your toothbrush will keep it germ-free and smelling fresh.
  • Need a quick breath freshener?  Add a drop of Thieves on your tongue.
  • Diffuse Thieves to prevent or eliminate toxic mold.
  • Make a soothing tea by adding a drop of Thieves to a cup of hot water.
  • Diffuse Thieves daily to boost immunity and eliminate airborne micro-organisms.
  • Cleaning your carpet?  Add a few drops of Thieves to your carpet steamer/cleaner to disinfect and eliminate odors.
  • A few drops of Thieves on a cotton ball placed with stored items will prevent mold and mildew.
  • Add a drop to your vacuum filter to freshen the air and keep your vacuum smelling fresh.
  • Pet accidents?  Add a few drops of Thieves to a wet rag and scrub area to eliminate odors.
  • Got ticks?  Rub a drop of Thieves on the tick and it will back right out without your pulling.

Thieves Spray

  • Feel a sore throat coming on?  A few shots of Thieves Spray to the back of the throat will ease the pain.
  • A few squirts on shopping cart handles will disinfect and purify.
  • Wipe down restaurant tables and high chairs with a few spritzes of Thieves Spray.
  • How about spraying on a clean cloth and wiping down your computer keyboard?
  • Do the same on your television remote control.
  • Spritz the inside of stinky shoes.

Thieves Waterless Hand Purifier

  • Stinky?  Rub a small amount of Thieves Waterless Hand Purifier under your arms as an emergency underarm de-odorant.  (Might smart a bit in a good way….)
  • Daub on insect bites to stop itching or stinging.
  • Purify cuts and scrapes by rubbing a small amount of Thieves Waterless Hand Purifier on location.
  • A small amount of Thieves Waterless Hand Purifier and some rubbing will remove scuff marks from tile.
  • Daub a small amount a facial blemish to speed healing.

During the fall and winter, I diffuse Thieves in the common area of my house by plugging my diffuser into a good old-fashioned lamp timer.  Making sure there is plenty of Thieves in the diffuser, I program the timer to run 4-5 times daily for about 5 minutes each time.  We also make a habit of rubbing Thieves on the bottoms of our feet before putting on our socks each morning and before going to bed each night.  It is a rare occurrence for anyone in our household to be sick with a cold or flu.  So tell me, how do you use your Thieves?
