Thieves® Vitality Essential Oil

 

THIEVES® Vitality 

dietary

OH how I love me some Thieves® oil.  This oil packs quite the punch and it smells like a slice of spiced heaven.   Thieves® is a blend of clove, lemon cinnamon, eucalyptus radiata, and rosemary – seriously – purifying the air never smelled quite so good.

There is a sordid back story behind the name of Thieves® essential oil blend.  Legend says that during the 15th century 4 thieves were captured and charged with robbing the dead and the dying during the Bubonic Plague.  When offered leniency in exchange for information about how they were able to rob graves and not contract the plague themselves, they spoke of a blend of aromatic herbs and spices they rubbed on themselves prior to their crimes.   And as such, the legend of Thieves® Essential Oil Blend was born.

FRANKINCENSE

What is frankincense essential oil? Frankincense is a tree or shrub that produces a gum or resin that can be steam distilled into an essential oil with many health benefitsoman Although frankincense trees can be grown anywhere, the region of Oman is known for producing the best, highest quality oils today.

Frankincense has long been revered and viewed as a holy oil in the Middle East. It was used ceremonially to create greater connection with the God of one’s faith. Many people have found that it’s a very grounding, spiritual oil and diffuse it during yoga classes, times of prayer or meditation, and religious services and ceremonies.

Essential Oil Safety

Essential Oils are wonderful.  I truly believe that.  But just because they are natural does not mean they can’t hurt you.  The following are just a few thing to think about when starting out with essential oils.

1.  Ingesting Oils:  One reason why I like Young Living Essential Oils is their commitment to purity.  With their seed to seal promise I don’t worry about synthetics or additives. ( http://seedtoseal.com/en )  Not all oils are safe to  ingest so please be sure to read labels carefully.  I do not recommend ingesting any other brand besides Young Living essential oils that are labeled as dietary supplements.

2.  Children and Elderly: In general, you should adjust dosages downward for children and elderly, but also use extra caution in choosing essential oils to be used in babies and children (or avoid use altogether).  Using a carrier oil to dilute essential oils used with children is an extra layer of protection and one that is highly recommended.  Also, if you apply essential oils to the feet, a baby may reach down and touch their feet then rub their eyes, or worse, place their foot into their mouths.  Please make a well informed decision.

3. Pregnancy/Breastfeeding:  There is SO much information out there regarding pregnancy and breastfeeding that I’ll only say one thing.  Research. Research Research.  And then research some more.

4.  Skin Sensitivity:  Some people have very sensitive skin and some oils are more prone to causing a skin reaction than others (see chart below).  It’s wise to do a patch test before using any oil for the first time.   To do this use a bit of oil, diluted with a carrier oil, inside your forearm or wrist.  After 24 hours if any redness, swelling, blistering, itchiness or burning occurs it’s probably a safe bet that you are having a reaction to that oil.

5. Phototoxicity:citrus  Some oils, especially citrus oils,  will make your skin more sensitive in the sun.  So do not, for instance, use lemon oil on your face to treat your acne then go lay in a tanning bed.  Seriously.  Don’t do it.

6. Flammability: Keep them clear of open flame, spark, or Fire hazards.

7. Eyes, Ears and Nose:  As a general rule,  do NOT put essential oils directly in your ears, eyes or nose.  If you accidentally get an essential oil in your eyes, flush with olive oil or milk before rinsing with water (water and oil don’t play well together).   Be careful to wash your hands after applying essential oils so you don’t accidentally get them in your eyes if you rub them.
