Thieves® versus the Black Plague
Thieves® Essential Oil Blend was created based on history of a group of thieves in the 1600's who were stealing from the dead and dying victims of the plague. They were captured and offered leniency if they revealed how they resisted the infection. They told about how they used a combination of cloves, rosemary, and other perfumes (oils) that they would apply to themselves and breathe in as they were amongst the victims of the plague.
When D. Gary Young uncovered that essential oils, being in a concentrated form, are hundreds of times more potent then herbs or tinctures. He began developing a blend of essential oils to help protect people from harmful microbes and help keeping their immune systems strong, he recalled the “four thieves” story, and Thieves® Blend was created. Skilled blending of Young Living Clove, Rosemary, Lemon, Cinnamon Bark and Eucalyptus radiata essential oils, the Thieves® Blend exceeds the original formula of the historic aromatic vinegars.
Studies at Weber State University showed Thieves® to have a 99.96% success rate against airborne bacteria. After only 10 minutes, bacteria was already decreasing. There was a reduction of 82% in Micrococcus luteus, 96% in Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and 44% in Staphylococcus aureus. More studies are being conducted on a regular basis on a variety or bacteria and the effectiveness of Thieves®.
With superbugs and antibiotic resistant bacterias emerging all around us, it is more important than ever to have a reliable line of natural defense products. Whether there is a "bug" going around school or the office, bacteria transmitted through keyboards, telephones, and doorhandles, Young Living's Thieves Line offers a full range of immune-boosting, germ-killing products to keep your immune system up year-round.
