Thieves the Day


I couldn't think of a better oil to feature for a new year than Thieves. I mean, if you haven't tried it, are you even living?


"In France during the 15th century, thieves would sneak into graveyards to rob from the dead and dying. Legend says they protected themselves by creating a special aromatic combination composed of clove, rosemary, and other botanicals. Today Thieves essential oil blend is inspired by those tales of old. Combining Clove, Cinnamon Bark, Lemon oil, Eucalyptus Radiata, and Rosemary essential oils, this blend is one of our most popular products. Use it with household cleaning products or diffuse it to freshen up a room.

Thieves essential oil blend joined the Young Living family in 1994." - Young Living

Diffusing Oils

Here are a few blends to get you started.


If you've never diffused oils before, all you have to do is get your diffuser, fill to the full line with water and then add 6 drops of oils. Most diffuser vary in size and time, so be sure to read the instructions. Some even have some really neat lighting options. If you want to get started with a diffuser, we can help you!


To clean, you'll want to clean about once a week or in between strong blend changes.

  1. Turn off and unplug your diffuser.

  2. Wipe out the reservoir with a wet cotton cloth.

  3. Dip a cotton swab in rubbing alcohol and clean the ultrasonic plate to remove any extra buildup.

  4. Rinse the reservoir with water; then wipe it clean and dry up excess water with a soft cloth.

  5. Add water and essential oils; then diffuse away!
