Thieves oil has an interesting history. According to The Royal English Archives, there were four spice merchants who specialized in the trade of several spices, but among them were clove and cinnamon. These merchants weren't able to do business as usual when the Black Plague hit because all trade had shut down. Being left with the looming obstacle of supporting themselves, they decided to loot the houses (and bodies) of plague victims.
In an effort to combat sickness, they covered themselves in a mixture of oils and spices all over their bodies. What do you know, it worked and they were able to go from spice merchants to successful pawn shops. However, when they snuck into these places, the smell of the oil lingered, leaving a clue to who they were.
This worked so well that the King found out and sent his guards out to arrest the merchants. Threatened with being burned at the stake, the merchants gave up the recipe they used to protect themselves from the Black Plague virus.
Now Thieves oil is available from a number of different sources in different strengths across the world. This particular blend of Thieves oil is very strong and already mixed with a carrier oil. This powerful antiviral can help reduce fever, improve respiratory health, and strengthen your immune system. Thieves oil can even be added to cleaning solution for an additional boost!
This blend stays true with the original ingredients of lemon, clove, cinnamon, eucalyptus and rosemary essential oils and these are carefully diluted in fractionated coconut oil because of its natural antibacterial and anti-fungal properties. The additional coconut oil also protects your skin from burns associated with using essential oils neat. For the best results, I highly recommend rubbing this oil on your chest and neck area. In addition to that, do just like Grandma would say and rub some on the bottom of your feet and then put on some socks.
Ingredients: lemon, clove, eucalyptus, rosemary, coconut oil.

As the mother of a young child, I am constantly in need of some kind of healing cream that possesses some supreme germ fighting power. I've noticed that I don't have very many alternatives for Neosporin, which is effective, but doesn't rest my nerves the way a natural substitute does. There's just something about knowing exactly what I'm applying on my child that calms my nerves.
When in search for the perfect combination of oils to make this cream I decided to start off with Tea Tree because it's notorious for being a powerful antiseptic in addition to having anti-infectious, antiviral, anti-inflammatory and tissue regenerative properties. Geranium softens up the smell of the tea tree while contributing with its antiseptic and antibacterial properties. It can also help relieve stress as it also contains a mild sedative, this comes in handy with a screaming child that wants Mom to put medicine on his oowie. Frankincense gives a perfect musky balance as a classic antiseptic, anti-infectious and anti-inflammatory. It also helps relax newly scarred individuals with its calming sedating properties as well.
Lavender serves as an extra antiseptic that helps protect from infection and helps the skin regenerate along with Rosehip Seed Oil making this the perfect blend to replace your Neosporin with things you actually recognize by name.
