What is Thieves Oil?

DIY Thieves Oil by The Clawfoot

Hello lovelies. I have been on a bit of a hiatus and my deepest apologies! I’m working through getting it all figured out. Okay, well, that isn’t entirely true. I can say that I don’t think I’ll ever have it all figured out. But I’m working on ME. Have you ever worked on yourself? Well let me tell you something friend, it’s hella time consuming!!!! In addition to that, I have a full-time job still, taking care of my family and trying to build not one but two businesses!!! I’m working with several coaches myself right now on myself and my businesses.

I might be crazy….

But I’m so passionate about working on my coaching business. If you are not familiar, in all my self journey, it lead me to not only becoming a certified aromatherapist but also to realizing my calling to help others. Primary, mothers who have lost themselves, their identity, their passions while being a mom, wife, overall superwoman. My goal is to help them find their inner goddess which will only make them an even better mom! In addition to that I’ve been working on the latest collection – The Soulful Collection, which will be launching soon. I know, I know, I’ve said that before. I’m so sorry, the release date keeps getting pushed back. But I promise it will be within the next few weeks!! So keep an eye out on that release. But now I’m back and ready to kick start my blog again and post to you guys more consistently. If there is EVER a topic that you would like me to address, please, please, please go ahead and either comment or reach out on social media.

NOW….lets get into what this post is actually about!!!

Thieves Oil. Have you heard of it? Well, legend goes something along the lines of the 15th Century there was a group of brothers that would go around and pillage those who died from the plague. The theory was they never contracted the plague themselves because they covered themselves in an herbal blend paste all over their bodies. This kept them “safe” from getting sick while they robbed the dead. Crazy story I know. But the “thieves” blend of essential oils has become increasingly popular. Just about every Oil Company has their own blend that they sell. I will not say that one is better than the other. It’s pretty much your personal preference. My personal preference is of course always on the affordable side. So I make my own. I’m going to give you the recipe that I use and then some ideas for use.
