Powerful Essential Oil Blends Work to Eradicate Mould, Bacteria, and VirusesSabina DeVita Ed.D., NNCP, IPSP April 1, 2013
As a tool in the battle against harmful germs and rampant mutated bacteria like MRSA found in our hospitals, homes, offices, and communities, Thieves® products provide a full-spectrum “overwhelming force” to eradicate pathogens without any harsh chemicals and medicines. Thieves® Oil Blend is formulated with highly antiviral, antiseptic, antibacterial, and anti-infectious essential oils. Thieves® Oil Blend was created based on research concerning a group of 15th-century thieves in France during the Great Plague, who managed to protect themselves themselves while robbing plague victims by rubbing cloves, rosemary, and other aromatics over their bodies.
The Thieves® formula is a Young Living proprietary blend that was university-tested at Weber State University and found to be highly effective in destroying over 99.96 percent of bacteria it came into contact with, showing non-mutative capabilities, supporting the immune system and good health.
Other studies showed that essential oils of cinnamon, clove, lemongrass, geranium, and thyme were equal or superior to the powerful anti-fungal drug, Hexaconzasole. The essential oil of cinnamon at a 0.04 percent concentration completely stopped the growth of 35 different fungi. Clove essential oil, with its primary constituent eugenol, was found to destroy more than 60 types of bacteria, 15 strains of fungi, and several viruses. “Essential oils of spices and herbs (thyme, oregano, mint, cinnamon, sage, and clove) were found to possess the strongest antimicrobial properties among the many tested.” (D. Kalemba; A. Kunika. Current Medicinal Chemistry. Vol. 10, No. 10. pg. 813-829 abstract))
The third largest medical centre in the U.S., the Cleveland Clinic – a $5 billion healthcare system under the direction of Dr. Toby Cosgrove, is now utilizing Young Living Therapeutic® standard Essential Oils due to their purity, chemical-free distillation, and high potency for various therapies. They diffuse Young Living Essential Oils into the air at nursing stations, in their PACU, physicians’ lounges, and in some offices. In Missouri, hospitals are using essential oils to prevent and eliminate mould from offices, surgeries, and intensive care units. Another 25 hospitals now use Young Living essential oils for health care and for disinfecting purposes.
A University of Arizona study found that office desks harbour 400 times more bacteria than the average toilet seat! The highest bacteria levels were found on telephones, desks, water fountain handles, microwave oven door handles, and computer keyboards. Even a small area on a desk can harbour millions of bacteria, which can cause illness, according to the study. (AORN Journal, May 2002.)
The improved Thieves® Clean and Green formula includes essential oils of:
Clove (Syzygium aromaticum) destroys mould, fungus, flu, and more. Clove is the highest-scoring single ingredient ever tested for its antioxidant capacity on the ORAC scale, with a score of over 10,000,000.
Lemon (Citrus limon) has antiseptic-like properties and contains compounds that amplify immunity. It is anti-fungal and anti-bacterial. It promotes circulation, leukocyte formation, and lymphatic function.
Cinnamon bark (Cinnamomum verum) destroys MRSA, staphylococcus, fungi, and other bacteria.
Eucalyptus (Eucalyptus radiata) is a relatively gentle and non-irritating variety that is highly anti-microbial.
Rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis CT cineol) is anti-fungal and antiseptic as well as being beneficial for helping to restore mental alertness when experiencing fatigue.
The Thieves household cleaner retails for $28.95 and the Thieves essential oil blend retails for $44.41.
