|Thieves Line of Products|
Thieves essential oil blend, first developed in the 1990s, combines Clove, Rosemary, Lemon, Cinnamon Bark, and Eucalyptus Radiata essential oils for perhaps the most popular blend in Young Living history. However, its formulation was only the beginning of our Thieves innovations. The unique properties of these specially chosen essential oils inspired our development experts to ask a simple question: Why can’t more products be infused with this unique and powerful oil combination? That question has led to an entire line of products containing Thieves essential oil blend: Household Cleaner, Spray, Wipes, Waterless Hand Purifier, Foaming Hand Soap, Bar Soap, and Lozenges, as well as an entire medicine cabinet’s worth of toothpastes, floss, and mouthwash. This outward branching of Thieves into other useful products is just another example of our innovation at work.
According to historical accounts from fifteenth century France, there was a band of thieves who anointed themselves with various aromatics such a cinnamon and clove, prior to robbing the homes of plague victims. The thieves never became ill and once captured were forced to relinquish their secret formula. Young Living's essential oil blend, Thieves, is based on this ancient account.
An exclusive blend of pure clove, cinnamon bark, rosemary, lemon, and Eucalyptus radiata essential oils, Thieves has been university tested and proven to be 99.9 percent effective at killing airborne bacteria.* The natural antibacterial properties of Thieves inspired an entire line of natural home and body solutions including oral care, hand care, and household products.
