What's Wellness got to do with it?


Team Oils Made Simple succesfully hosted a 5 day Wellness Workshop over on facebook! It was a huge success, but several people wanted it in writing to refer back to. We got you all covered!


We started the week with the history of Thieves and moved right into it's uses. Heard of Thieves? It is an immune boosting, powerhouse oil that smells like fall!


Back in the 15th Century, in the middle of the Bubonic Plague, 4 thieves were arrested for stealing from the dead. What was most puzzling about this case was the fact that these thieves remained healthy. Desperate for a possible remedy, authorities offered a more lenient sentence in exchange for their secret to not catching the disease.

The 4 men admitted to being spice and perfume merchants, unable to sell goods because of the Plague. They concocted a mixture of herbs and oils that they soon found was protecting them from the disease. The authorities remained true to their word of a lesser sentence, and then spread the news to doctors who are said to have begun using the blend to treat their patients and protect themselves from sickness.

Based on the legend, Young Living developed their own Thieves blend using the same ingredients the thieves Clove, Lemon, Cinnamon, Eucalyptus, and Rosemary! With the gorgeous change in weather, comes the need to boost our immune system! Thieves is perfect for boosting your internal defenses that fight off cold weather blues!

The tea includes the benefits of Thieves and Lemon essential oils and honey.

Simply take a tea cup and add:

1 drop Thieves Vitality 2 drops Lemon Vitality

1 TBSP of Honey 1 cup hot water






This simple recipe can easily be adjusted to your taste. I personally like to steep Peppermint tea and add these ingredients, plus an extra drop of lemon. It’s delicious AND has wonderful benefits. What’s not to love?!


I recommend putting the Thieves Roll-On on your feet and spine 2-3x daily, but you can also wear it behind your ears and on your wrists. Something I cannot stress enough is this: in order for your oils to work, you have to be using them!!! Not just using them when you are not feeling well. Using them every. single. day. Consistency is KEY! Think about it this way, you don’t eat one salad and then reach your goal weight. You don’t exercise one time and drop 20lbs. You have to put the time and work into it. Supporting your body with oils is just like that. Using them every single day is when you will see results.



After we talked about Thieves, Ashley gave us the 411 in order to keep our skin hydrated and healthy.

I am loving Rose Ointment, to help my skin gain that extra hydration. This is perfect for sensitive, rough and dry skin. The rose oil helps with improving skin texture and tea tree oil helps soothe the rough skin.

Benefits:

  • Replenishes the moisture barrier by sealing moisture into the skin.

  • Promotes healthier looking skin.

  • Easy to use.

How to Use:

Apply Rose Ointment to skin as needed. I like to add this to my lips, cuticles and other areas with dry skin. It's not recommended use after over sun-exposure. Be sure to wear sunscreen if used this before going into the sun.

We stayed on the topic of healthy hands a moment longer and Melissa shared,

"Thieves hand sanitizer- what could be a better ready to use item to have right now? As a nurse & a mama, I keep this on hand wherever I go. It has a great smell, unlike other hand sanitizers on the market. This hand sanitizer smells like fall in a bottle. My kids love it as well, & ask for it by name. The ingredients are safe for you & your children, and it’s infused with essential oils that are good for you. No need to worry if it has harmful ingredients, like some other brands on the market. With “sick” season approaching, you will want to make sure you order some of this to help keep you healthy this season.

My Thieves hand sanitizer, came with my Thieves Starter Kit!"


Who else is an obsessive compulsive hand washer?

Did you know there are tons of chemicals and fragrances in hand soaps? You DON’T want it in your hand soap. These chemicals that are "allowed" as trade secrets or even displayed have been known to cause infertility, cancer, and hormone issues. Anyone sign up for that just to wash their hands?

We want to avoid that junk, but still need to wash our hands, right?

Enter Thieves Foaming Hand Soap! Thieves hand soap will cleanse and defend your skin thanks to the essential oil blend. With pure orange and lemon essential oils, ginkgo biloba and vitamin E, it contains gentle ingredients, so it can be used often without drying your skin.

Fun Hack: You can turn 1 bottle of Thieves foaming hand soap into 3 bottles!

Remove 2/3 cup from the bottle and store for later. (or put 1/3 cup of the soap in 2 foaming hand pumps from Amazon.) Fill with water. That's IT!
