The Legend of Thieves


This graphic cracks me up!  Obviously, the only thieves you want to let into your home is the essential oil!

So, one of my favorite oil blends from Young Living is Thieves.  I always have it on hand, we use it daily, and it is the #1 oil that we diffuse in our home.  I love the spicy blend of clove, cinnamon, rosemary, lemon, and others!

But, why the name Thieves?  Legend has it that four 15th century french thieves formulated a special aromatic combination of clove, rosemary, and other botanicals to wear while robbing the dead and dying.  Although the plague was highly contagious, not one of this morbid band of thieves ever contracted the dreaded black plague.  This story is what inspired YL to name this amazing and spicy blend!

Thieves essential oil blend delivers the naturally derived constituents limonene, eugenol, and eucalyptus in a warm-smelling blend that has made it an all-time favorite for many YL members! Thieves Vitality essential oil blend may support wellness when taken as a dietary supplement.  I think it is simply amazing, and we love to use it as a preventative for our immune system.  Try adding 1 drop to a cup of hot tea for a spicy zing! :)


This blend is the basis for their A-MAZING Thieves line of products that includes (but not limited to) their cleaners!  I hate germs and we had always used bleach to disinfect our home (especially when we lived on post – that home was so old and run down, it never felt clean).  I rather dislike the smell of the usual household cleaners; they give me a headache.  So, when I became a Young Living Member, I decided to try their Thieves cleaner!  It cleans great, smells even better, and it also kills germs!  It is absolutely the best cleaner to wipe the kitchen counters down with!  If you are looking to ditch the chemicals, this is definitely the way to go!  I also love how its so cost effective.  It’s concentrated, so it ends up being less than a dollar per spray bottle! :)

I would love to chat with you on FacebookTwitter  ~ or follow me on Pinterest!  See what a “few of my favorite things” are!

Affordable Essential Oils

Obviously I am in love with my Young Living Essential Oils, but even I realize that some of these precious bottles of oil can be quite expensive!  But they aren’t all pricey, so I decided to let you know of the ones that are $20 or less RETAIL.  So, if you have a wholesale account, this list will be even longer with your 24% off retail pricing!  Simply amazing!


There are a few on this list that are my absolute favorites, such as Cedarwood, Valor, and Lemon.  Each essential oil has many uses for it.  Below I listed a few of them!

Cedarwood stimulates the limbic region of the brain, stimulates the pineal gland, which releases melatonin.  It is recognized for its calming and purifying properties.

Clove is a mental stimulant; encourages sleep, stimulates dreams, and creates a sense of protection and courage.

Valor balances energies and instills courage, confidence, and self-esteem.  It helps the body self-correct its balance and alignment.

Rosemary helps overcome mental fatigue and improves mental clarity and focus.

Eucalyptus Blue has a fresh, balanced, invigorating aroma.

Eucalyptus Globulus promotes health, well-being, purification, and healing.

Ginger is gentle, stimulating, endowing physical energy and courage.

Goldenrod has anti-inflammatory and anti-hypertensive properties.

Jade Lemon invigorates, uplifts, and energizes as well as support clarity of thought and purpose.

Lemongrass promotes mental awareness and purification.

Lemon promotes clarity of thought and purpose with a fragrance that is invigorating, enhancing, and warming.

Lime is great for skin conditions, insect bites, and respiratory discomfort.

Nutmeg has anti-inflammatory, antiseptic and anti-parasitic properties.

Orange is uplifting as it boosts immunity, induces relaxation, and reduces depression.

Pine relieves anxiety and revitalizes mind, body, and spirit.  It also has an empowering, yet grounding fragrance.

R.C. helps combat cold and allergy symptoms.

Spearmint opens and releases emotional blocks and brings about a feeling of balance and a lasting sense of well-being.

Christmas Spirit brings brings joy, peace, happiness, and security.

Citrus Fresh stimulates the brain to amplify creativity and well-being.

Peace & Calming promotes relaxation and a deep sense of peace and emotional well-being, helping to dampen tensions and uplift spirits.

There’s a New Line-up!

I have been using Young Living Essential Oils for 11 months now, and each day I fall more in love with them!  How I wish I had joined the hippie ranks years ago!  ;)

Young Living has been growing by leaps and bounds – I am amazed at how much!  Could it be that more and more are looking for natural, alternative options to combat daily issues?  I don’t know about you, but some of the side effects of over the counter drugs can be rather disturbing!  I don’t want to add more ailments, just want some relief from the one I have… ;)

Recently, YL released the newly updated Everyday Oil Collection!  I truly do use these oils every.single.day!

new line-up

Stress Away comes in EVERY Starter Kit with Young Living.  It is one of my all time favorite oils, and I use it numerous times a day.  It really does help keep me “even-keeled” throughout the day!  My family greatly appreciates that.  ;)

Citrus oils are superb in a glass of water.  I drink lemon water every morning, and throughout the day will enjoy either orange or grapefruit in my water.  Citrus Fresh is an excellent blend of all the citrus oils.

Melaleuca Alternifolia is commonly knows as ‘Tea Tree Oil’ and is excellent and useful in so many ways!

every day melaleuca
