If you have ventured into the world of essential oils you know it can be a little overwhelming in the beginning because there are so many oils and they all have literally hundreds of amazing uses. From natural cleaners to keeping your family healthy essential oils can do some wonderful things. Thieves’ oil is one of my favorite essential oils because it’s such a powerful oil and I love that there are so many uses for Thieves oil. Thieves oil was originally formulated in France by four thieves who robbed victims of the Bubonic Plague after they passed away, even though they were right near the bodies these thieves never contracted this horrible plague. Once caught for their crimes they were told they would receive a lighter sentence if they shared their secret. This is how this amazing oil was discovered!
