Thieves 101

Hi friends! With “spring cleaning” season around the corner, I thought I would write up a blog post on Thieves. If essential oils are not your “thing”, or you’ve been thinking about ditching the harsh, toxic cleaning products in your cabinets… consider switching to Thieves. Thieves is made up of all natural, plant-based ingredients, yet is still highly effective, and safe to use around your family!

What is Thieves?

A blend of essential oils that offer cleansing properties and immune support. Thieves was derived after researching what 15th century thieves put on themselves to avoid contracting the plague while they robbed the bodies of the dead and sick. When the thieves were captured, they were asked to share their secret to staying immune in exchange for a more lenient punishment. What was in it? You guessed it! A blend of highly potent oils that was appropriately dubbed “Thieves”. Thieves is a blend of Clove, Lemon, Cinnamon, Eucalyptus Radiata, and Rosemary. Fast forward to today, we’re now using Thieves in all kinds of home products thanks to Young Living.

If essential oils are not your thing, did you know that there is a Thieves Starter Kit? If you’re already an existing member, did you know that there is a Thieves Essential Rewards Kit? It includes just about everything in the Thieves Starter Kit, but at a discounted price for “ER” customers. ($118.50 vs. $160)

 

What is Included in the Kits?

1. THIEVES ESSENTIAL OIL

In the Premium Starter Kit, Thieves Starter Kit, and Thieves ER Kit; Thieves essential oil is a combination of cinnamon bark, clove, eucalyptus radiata, lemon, and rosemary. Benefits include, “immune support, cleansing to the digestive system, and general wellness support” (Young Living). Thieves cleanses, freshens, neutralizes and purifies the air, and it smells like Christmas!

Suggested Uses:

  • Pop roller fitment on top and roll on the bottoms of your feet for immune support. 
  • Diffuse 6–8 drops to help create a cozy, peaceful environment, reduce the toxins in the air, and neutralize the air from strong odors. Customize your Thieves experience by adding a few drops of Orange, Tangerine, or Nutmeg essential oil.
  • Put a drop in your morning juice, tea, or coffee.
  • Refresh musty carpets by adding 5 drops of Thieves to a cup of baking soda; combine well and let sit overnight until the oil is absorbed. Sprinkle over carpets and vacuum thoroughly.
  • Add a few drops to your dishwasher to eliminate odors and boost cleaning.

2. THIEVES HOUSEHOLD CLEANER

A sample comes in the Premium Starter Kit and TWO 14.4 oz. bottles are included in Thieves Starter Kit and Thieves ER Kit. The Thieves Household Cleaner is the answer to the mess under my cabinet prayers! With it, you can clean nearly every inch of your home – windows, mirrors,  countertops, tabletops, stovetops, floors, toilets, sinks, showers, tubs, inside the refrigerator / freezer / microwave, etc.

It’s the all purpose cleaner of cleaners! So, goodbye to a cleaner for this and a cleaner for that… it is the only one you will need! To use, you dilute one capful to specific amounts of water, based on what you’re cleaning.  You can also make a DIY Soft Scrub for your toilets, sinks, showers, and tubs. Check out how to make that HERE ! The BEST part is how cost effective it is! Here’s the breakdown: ONE 14.4 oz bottle of the Thieves Household Cleaner ($22.50) makes about TWENTY EIGHT 16 oz. spray bottles ($0.80 each!) You CAN NOT beat that!  

Lastly, the Thieves cleaner contains NO chemicals, toxins, or synthetic ingredients. Wherever you use it, you’ll feel good knowing it’s safe to use around everyone in your family, including your kids and pets.

3. THIEVES FOAMING HAND SOAP

TWO bottles are included in Thieves Starter Kit and Thieves ER Kit. It is gentle on skin, an effective alternative to commercial soaps, and blended with Thieves, Lemon, and Orange essential oils. I ditched all my chemical-fragrance enhanced Bath & Body Works soaps for the Thieves Foaming Hand Soap and I have not looked back!

4. THIEVES SPRAY

TWO bottles are included in the Thieves Starter Kit and Thieves ER Kit. The Thieves Spray’s naturally derived, plant-based ingredients quickly clean and freshens surfaces. It’s small, portable size makes it easy to throw in a purse, diaper bag, backpack, or luggage as an on-the-go all purpose yuck killer! Instead of using Lysol wipes to wipe down the shopping cart, high chair in a restaurant, airplane seats and trays, keep this in your bag and spray it wherever, whenever! Plus, it smells way better than either of those chemical filled products!

5. THIEVES WATERLESS HAND PURIFIER

TWO bottles are included in the Thieves Starter Kit and Thieves ER Kit. Thieves® Waterless Hand Purifier is convenient, portable, long lasting, and is enhanced with natural peppermint essential oil to cleanse and purify hands.

6. THIEVES TOOTHPASTE

The Aromabright toothpaste included in Thieves Starter Kit and Thieves ER Kit. Free from harsh alcohol and artificial dyes, flavors, and preservatives; it is infused with peppermint + spearmint essential oil, so it has a refreshing minty taste – just like the toothpaste you’re probably using right now! 

Tip: Add a drop of orange essential oil to your toothbrush for whitening!

7. THIEVES MOUTHWASH

One bottle is included in Thieves Starter Kit and Thieves ER Kit. Contains no alcohol, dyes, or artificial flavors. The Thieves Mouthwash has a refreshing taste with 100% pure essential oils. It provides fresh breath, an extra clean mouth, and supports healthy-looking gums and teeth.

What Thieves Products Exist Outside of the Kits?

THIEVES DISH SOAP

With naturally derived ingredients, Thieves® Dish Soap effectively cleans your dishes without chemicals, dyes, or synthetics. Young Living pure essential oils—Thieves, Jade Lemon, and Bergamot—work with other plant-based ingredients to leave your dishes sparkling clean.

THIEVES DISHWASHER POWDER

Plant-based cleaning powder tackles the dirtiest dishes with ease using the concentrated power of Thieves®, Lemongrass, and Orange essential oils, naturally derived soapberries, and two cleansing enzymes. No synthetic surfactants, fragrances, dyes, phosphates, or bulky, wasteful packaging. Its environmentally friendly formula is biodegradable and compatible with septic systems, so you can feel good about using it from start to finish.

It is ultra-concentrated, meaning that most loads require just 1 scoop or tablespoon. For heavy-duty loads, 2 scoops or tablespoons will leave dirtiest dishes spotless! If your home has hard water, I recommend using a citric acid-based rinse aid to ensure that your dishes stay clean and sparkling. (Eco-ver Naturally Derived Rinse Aid)  

THIEVES FRUIT + VEGGIE SOAK 

My FAVORITE Thieves product and a MUST HAVE for every home! The Thieves Fruit and Veggie Soak safely and effectively washes produce with the cleansing power of three exclusive essential oil blends—DiGize, Thieves, and Purification, and other naturally derived ingredients. Place produce in a bowl and fill with water, add one capful, stir, soak for 2 minutes, rinse, and enjoy!

THIEVES FRUIT + VEGGIE SPRAY

Safely and effectively washes produce on-the-go with the cleansing power of Thieves and Lime essential oils, and other naturally-derived ingredients. Spray produce, rub in for 30 seconds, and rinse.  

THIEVES LAUNDRY SOAP

Plant-based formula gently and naturally washes your clothes, cleaning them without any chemical or synthetic residue. Natural enzymes and powerful essential oils add to the formula’s strength to leave your clothes fresh and clean with a light citrus scent.

It can be used in all washers, including high-efficiency, and its highly concentrated formula (6X) will provide around 64 loads with just 32 fl. Oz. Use ½ capful for conventional washers. Use ¼ capful for HE (high-efficiency) washers.
