25 Ways to Use Thieves Essential Oil

resource preview

We're only a few days into our Thieves journey. I don't know about you, but I'm already such a believer! This one product has revolutionized how we care for our health and our home, and I will be forever grateful.

Do you remember the very first time your skepticism turned to belief about Thieves? Was it easy for you or were you a tough sell? I think the moment I put it in my diffuser when I received my starter kit was enough for me! I couldn't get enough, and then when I saw the results every time we didn't feel well, I couldn't believe how quickly it made a difference. Every 10 minutes any time someone started feeling yucky became our routine and then nightly for maintenance.

Not a believer yet?

Even if you don't have the full line up of products yet, here are 25 ways just to use Thieves oil itself! No wonder it has such a fan club.
