The holiday season can be a joyful time of celebration where cheerful and unforgettable memories are formed. Many of the sights, sounds and smells remind us of the holidays past and the exciting experiences we have enjoyed, and today we have the opportunity to discuss two essential oils blends that help make your holidays joyous rather than gloomy – Thieves and Christmas Spirit.
Thieves is indispensable for the support it provides the immune system during the winter time when elevated stress levels can weaken the body’s natural defenses. Without it, you may be sidelined rather than enjoying your favorite traditions of the holidays. Thieves essential oil blend was inspired by the legend of four 15th century thieves who formulated a special aromatic blend composed of clove, rosemary and other botanicals to use while robbing the dead and dying. Young Living’s one-of-a-kind blend, crafted in the spirit of that legendary blend can be found in many of our most popular products and is a safe, natural alternative to harsh chemicals in personal care products and household cleaners. Containing clove, lemon, cinnamon, eucalyptus radiate and rosemary, Thieves offers unmatched support for you and you family.
Clove is one of the most potent antioxidants known. Not too long ago, clove was used as a dental anesthetic due to its eugenol content and is good for both relieving occasional discomfort and eliminating germs. Its immune supporting properties help support the body’s natural defenses.
Lemon contains significant quantities of the potent antioxidant D limonene. This compound has been exhaustively studied for its therapeutic qualities including supporting the immune system and the health of the cells. Multiple studies confirm that lemon essential oil offers potent protection.
Cinnamon supports the immune and cardiovascular systems. It is considered a blood purifier and has been used to support the body’s natural defenses for centuries.
Like the other oils in the blend, eucalyptus radiate and rosemary help fortify the body’s innate defenses. Both are refreshing and energizing and supportive of the respiratory system.
Scientists and healthcare professionals are concerned about the spread of germs because of their efficiency to spread to a large number of people. Many of the oils in Thieves blend have been tested to support the immune system. Diffusing Thieves in your home or office is a great way to purify the air. Many users also enjoy applying Thieves to the bottom of their feet. The shielding power of Thieves is so valuable that its protective properties are infused into multiple Young Living products including oral care products, hand and body soaps, throat lozenges and even a household cleaner. If you’re looking to support your body’s natural defenses so you can attend all your favorite gatherings during the holidays, look no further than Young Living’s Thieves Essential Oil Blend.
Have you ever walked into a room and smelled a scent that instantly reminded you of a past event? Christmas Spirit is full of these kinds of scents. With orange, cinnamon bark and spruce, it is bound to make you reminiscent of the winter holidays.
Orange is an uplifting scent that encourages feelings of security, peace and joy. Interestingly, some retailers have started to use so-called scent marketing by adding orange aromas and other pleasant smells to their stores because studies suggest it makes people happier, and happier people will spend more money. You may want to diffuse orange oil at the next tradeshow booth you attend.
The warm, spicy scent of cinnamon brings back memories of wassail, cinnamon pinecones and home cooked food. It is one of the oldest spices known, and emperors of both China and India used it as a measure of wealth. Its aroma can make your mouth water and powerfully stimulate the appetite, which may be why it is so hard to resist Grandma’s cinnamon rolls.
It is hard to smell the earthy, evergreen scent of spruce without conjuring images of Christmas trees. Its pleasing aroma makes the whole house feel more like home during the holidays. This blend is a wonderful choice for diffusing. Another way to enjoy it is to add a few drops onto pinecones and place them in a bowl as a scented decoration. It is one of my personal favorites during the holidays and I often get comments about how inviting my home smells from neighbors and friends when I diffuse it.
Enjoy the holidays and make your house feel more like home with Thieves and Christmas Spirit.
Until next time, we wish you abundant health and a wonderful day.
