In our brick and mortar shop, customers often stop in and ask if we carry Thieves Oil. The short answer is no; Thieves oil is a product of a specific essential oil company. But the fun long answer is: make your own! We are proud of the wide variety of essential oils we carry at the Mustard Seed, and always encourage our customers to have fun with DIY essential oil blends. As we approach flu season we figure now is as good a time as ever to share an immune supporting blend.*
But first: some history on this blend of oils. There is a medieval tale about a group of thieves who protected themselves from the plague with a blend of clove, rosemary and other herbals. Is this myth or truth? Who is to say. But all of the involved herbals and spices have been observed to have medicinal properties.* For instance, lemon and rosemary have been shown to be cleansing and purifying. Clove and cinnamon are anti-inflammatory and antibacterial. Eucalyptus helps open our airways. So is this blend an end all be all protector? Probably not. But adding essential oils to your wellness regimen is fun and we all could use a little more fun in our life, right? So get that diffuser out and get ready to make your DIY essential oil blend.
