Do you know Thieves oil can be used to take care of your health and home? Hi, it’s Shinko, and I’m passionate about living a natural lifestyle. From overall wellness, personal hygiene to general house cleaning, Thieves has got them all covered! Today, I will be Mrs. Pinterest and share 18 ways to use Thieves for your everyday life! Are you worried that you may not remember them all? No problem! Click the link below for recipes.
Before I proceed, here is a tip. Thieves contains hot oils such as Cinnamon and Clove! To apply on your skin, mix five drops of Thieves essential oil in 5ml of vegetable oil. If a larger quantity is desired, maintain a ratio of 1 drop to 1 ml of vegetable oil. If you would like to apply directly on your skin, you may want to use it on the sole of your feet because it is such a thick and porous part of the body yet not overly sensitive.
Avoid contact with eyes and mucous membranes. If this happens, rinse well with vegetable oil, not water, or it will sting your eyes!
Another thing to note is that Thieves oil includes Lemon oil, which natural compounds may dissolve plastics. If you would like to store the oil or the mixture, use a glass container.
Are you ready?
Would you like to clear your stuffy nose? Add a few drops of Thieves essential oil to a bowl of hot water and cover your head. Keep your eyes closed and breathe in deeply through your nose. If, at any point, the heat becomes overwhelming, remove yourself from the steam and drink a glass of water.
Got a sore throat? Mix a drop of Thieves oil with a tablespoon of water and gargle well. It can help reduce swelling and relieve irritation in your throat.
Do you have a chest cold? Apply 1-2 drops with vegetable oil to upper chest and throat for chest tightness. Repeat up to three times daily to clear chest mucus naturally.
Need some immune support? A warm Thieves oil bath is what you need! Add ten drops with Epsom salt to bath water and enjoy!
Would you like to keep away the cold and flu? Combine one drop of Thieves oil with four drops of vegetable oil on the sole of your feet and massage twice daily! And guess what? You can also do this before boarding a plane to keep germs at bay!
Not a fan of oily foot massage? Diffuse Thieves oil to keep bugs out of your home! Add a few drops to your diffuser after filling the base with distilled water and simply turn it on. It is indeed a fantastic way to give added support for healthy lungs, sinus, and the immune system throughout the year!
To Hygiene and Beyond:
Would you like to keep your gums and teeth nice and healthy? Take a clean Q-Tip, add 1-2 drops Thieves oil and apply to gums and teeth daily! That will help relieve toothaches as well.

Got a pimple? Not to worry because Thieves has got it all covered! Put a drop of Thieves oil on the spot to reduce swelling naturally.
Ready to get rid of athlete’s foot? Simply apply Thieves oil onto the infected toes and feet. Let the oil soak in for about 10 minutes and massage. If you find the oil too strong using straight-up, you can mix it with vegetable oil before applying.
