falling in love with thieves

You know how sometimes you find something that you just love and just have to share? That is how i feel about Young Living Oils. I’ve been using these little unicorn tears in a bottle(tee hee) for three years now and a lot of people have been asking me about them recently so I thought I’d start a post series on my blog to share. take it or leave it, but these little oils have been life changing and so how can I not share?

I wanted to start with the oil that really rocked our world, Because let’s be honest, when I first heard about these little bottles of magic, i was intrigued…and my husband was SUPER skeptical of these “witch oils” as he called them at first. I can laugh about that now, but at first it was a major stumbling block, because with a limited income as a pastors family, I had to get him on board if i was going to try these all out.

Any waaaayyy, back to the story.

If you know my family, and you know our journey with health that started in Princeton NJ, then it isn’t a surprise to you that I am always on the lookout for things to help!  Here’s the brief back story: Back in seminary, my sweet husbuddy lost 30 pounds IN A MONTH. Y’all. It was scary. He was so sick. He couldn’t keep things in, he proceeded to have multiple rounds of colds that immediately turned to sinus infections etc…on top of it all his body was attacking itself with anxiety attacks. You know, just cause he needed to be hit while he was down.  it took months of doctor appointments, all sorts of tests, all sorts of different directions and we finally figured out it all came back to his diet. …mostly.

I say mostly because once we fixed his diet, he felt so much better(!!praise hands!!) and he was able to actually function. BUT… he still got sick. ALL.THE.TIME. He has an immune deficiency. The doctors basically said this is just who he is and he needs to live with it.

Well… when I heard about this magic little bottle called Thieves, I knew we HAD to try it.

This is what I had heard:

  • ” Thieves is a proprietary blend of clove, lemon, cinnamon bark, eucalyptus radiata, and rosemary essential oils.  Young Living’s Thieves essential oil blend was inspired by the legend of four 15th-century French thieves who formulated a special aromatic blend composed of clove, rosemary, and other botanicals to use while robbing dead and dying victims of the plague.”
  • “99.96% kill rate against airborne bacteria”
  • “It boosts the immune system”
  • “It fights colds and sickness!”
  • “Supports digestive health”
  • “really, strengthens all the systems of the body!”
  • “Cleanses and detoxes household objects”

you guys, the list goes on. Anyway, I finally saved up some of my own money to buy this little bottle of gold. I bought it in the fall, knowing that as soon as the weather gets cold, BAM, Husband gets sick. He was super skeptical. But one day he felt a cold coming on. I told him to let me try it, let me put some drops of oil on the bottom of his feet. And let’s just see what happens…

WELL, it worked. He fought off a cold for the FIRST TIME IN OUR MARRIAGE. it was crazy. So, then he was intrigued too!

Now we use it all.the.time! We dilute it and put it on our girls before going to the church nursery(cause, germs!), we put it in tea when our throats hurt, we put it in capsules with other oils to boost our immune system, we use it multiple times a day when we are sick.

Yes, we still get sick. Because, hello, nothing is going to keep us perfect. BUT, the difference is drastic. We used to to have multiple weeks each winter where Husband was home sick in bed. But now? It maybe happens once or twice. And he rarely gets a sinus infection any more. WHAT?! IT was a given before.

MY husband is a believer.

haha. I am a believer. And so began my journey into oils… {more to come!}

My plan is to keep sharing my journey, in hopes that anyone else who deals with some of these issues, can have hope too.

But really, once I started, I found that essential oils help all the time, with everything. I am constantly learning new things and finding new ways to use them! That’s what’s kind of fun! You don’t have to have it figured out to jump in!

So, who else has tried Thieves and loves it as much as I do? Who would like to try it? I’ve included some directions for how to start if you’re interested. And of course, please contact me with all.the.questions.
