Ok, so granted this is not a TYPICAL post for this site, but I wanted to get my recipe for Thieves’ Oil online in case anyone needed it. I suppose though that staying healthy can be quite a savings strategy. It sells for about 60.00/ounce, but it’s fairly affordable to make.
This oil is used to ward off sickness – grave robbers used it during ancient and old times to enter tombs without being effective. It gained fame when it was discovered thieves were using it during the times of the Black Death to steal from the stricken’s homes and graves, and they were not getting the plague.
I like to use it during cold and flu season when I go out shopping. Does it work? I haven’t got the flu in years, but I can’t say why, only that I believe it works for me. It traditionally is put on the soles of the feet and the nape of the neck. (Some people’s will find it irritating to the skin, even in carrier oil, so test a tad of it first!) The vapors are said to help kill viruses and be antibacterial. One university studied it, and they said it was the thymols and phenols in it. It does have a lot of them, considering what I know about the individual ingredients.
Now magickally, if you are into that, all the plants have associations with purification, exorcism, protection, and healing.
Recipe for Thieves Oil
Thieves oil is an oil used to ward off sickness and plague.
The ingredients are pretty much virucidal and antiseptic.
Here’s how you make it:
Use olive oil or a carrier oil (I use macadamia nut oil myself, as I have a good cheap source for it…almond, jojoba, but any carrier oil should do.)
Equal parts of lemon, eucalyptus, cinnamon, clove, and rosemary essential oils.
There’s a second recipe for it:
Clove Bud Oil 200 drops, Lemon Oil 175 drops, Cinnamon
Oil 100 drops, Eucalyptus Oil 75 drops, Rosemary 50 drops.
This last one smells STRONGLY of cloves. I use the first second recipe but prefer to up my eucalyptus as I prefer the smell, because I KNOW it has been used to fend off viruses before by itself, by putting some on bandanas that you breathe though, like masks.
You can buy lemon eucalyptus already mixed, as it is a commonly used combo formula, and that cuts down on the cost of making it.
