Being Healthy with Thieves

Do you consider yourself a Healthy Person?

Before you answer, we need to be on the same page about what “health” really is.  According to World Health organization, “Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.”

Essentially, every area of your life falls into one (or more) of these categories, and, YES, it should be your goal to master every discipline.
• Spiritual – Having a thriving relationship with your Creator.
• Physical – Maintaining a strong, healthy body.
• Mental – Being intellectually sound and having the mind of Christ.
• Emotional – Being at peace and enjoying a balance of healthy feelings.
• Financial – Having enough to provide for your family and to be BIG givers.
• Occupational – Truly enjoying the work of your hands.
• Social – Fostering deep, mutually beneficial relationships with friends, family and people that you encounter every day.

We should make attempts to become healthy naturally, there is no quick fix.  Thieves is my all time go-to oil for so many uses, from internally to household.  Some of them were covered in the previous post on Thieves Oil.

Young Living Product Summary – 

Thieves Essential Oil Blend

Europeans began producing essential oils in the 12th century. During the Plague of the 15th century, certain thieves were able to rob the dead without fear of becoming infected by the terrible disease. After being captured and charged with robbing the dead and dying victims of the plague, the thieves were offered a deal. The magistrate offered them leniency if they would reveal how they managed to avoid contracting the dreaded infection, in spite of their close proximity with the infected corpses. They disclosed that they were perfumers and spice traders, and that they had rubbed themselves with a concoction of aromatic herbs (cinnamon, and clove).  

Thieves® essential oil blend was inspired by the legend of four 15th-century French thieves who formulated a special aromatic combination composed of clove, rosemary, and other botanicals they used while robbing the dead and dying. 
Thieves Blend™ was found to have a 99.6 percent kill rate against airborne bacteria!

Young Living’s one-of-a-kind Thieves blend, crafted in the spirit of that legendary combination, can be found in all of our Thieves products. Thieves supports healthy immune function, and includes Eucalyptus radiata essential oil, which may help maintain a healthy respiratory system.* When taken as a dietary supplement, Thieves is an ideal complement to a daily wellness regimen.*
