    It’s awesome when you have a cold for your nose. To help me feel better when I am sick, I rub Thieves on my toes and the pad of my foot. Wala!

    Some one told me that I could put a couple drops down my back & rub down both sides of my spine for colds , bronchitis. Was this wrong advice? It did help though.

    Is the vitality line safe for children?

    • Young Living February 27, 2017 - 1:49 pm Reply

      Hi Victoria, Although we do recommend extreme caution when using essential oils for children, through our research and 20+ years of experience, we have found that essential oils can be safe and beneficial for people of all ages. However, due to the extreme sensitivities of children and the fact that individual reactions will vary, we do not have a list of specific oils that can/cannot be used with children available to provide. We suggest consulting a health care provider to determine what is right for your children.

    I know how to use thieves vitality and drinks but I’m wondering what benefit there is to use it? Is it for immune system, mood, weight control…???

    • Young Living February 24, 2017 - 12:27 pm Reply

      Hi Pam, Thieves Vitality™ can support overall wellness and a healthy immune system. It can also be added to further brighten the flavors of your favorite foods and drinks!

    Is thieves mixed with lavender and a carrier oil safe for children (6 years old)? I use this blend (equal parts of all three oils) on my children at night and in the morning. I have recently heard thieves may not be safe for children under 10.

We suggest consulting a health care provider to determine what is right for your children. We recommend referring to the individual label directions for any age restrictions as well. Essential oils should be diluted for use on children. We suggest using a patch test procedure prior to ensure the oil is properly diluted for the child. To perform a patch test, apply 1-2 drops of EO to a patch of skin such as the forearm.

    I ordered the lozenges with the red and white package, but received different packaging with a lemon on it. Are they the same product?

    • Young Living January 9, 2017 - 11:52 am Reply

      Hi Nancy, Great question. During the past year our Thieves® product line was given a brighter look with a new packaging design. We can assure you that the lozenges you received is the same formula you know and love. Thanks for stopping by!

    Why are you now adding Polysorbate 80 to the Thieves Spray?

    • Young Living October 10, 2016 - 8:47 am Reply

      Hi Linda, Polysorbate 80 has always been apart of the formula for the Thieves Spray to stabilize the oils mixed in the water. Polysorbate 80 had been mistakenly omitted from a previous label version, however this has been corrected. We are currently in the process of reformulating the Thieves Spray without Polysorbate 80. Thanks for stopping by with your question!

    I have ulcers on my tonsils and they have continued to form for the last four weeks. I read that applying Thieves on a Q-tip will make them go away. Should I use Thieves or Thieves Vitality?

    Thieves Vitality is what’s in the new starter kit instead of the original thieves…Can Thieves Vitality be diffused just like the original Thieves?

    • Young Living July 28, 2016 - 7:09 am Reply

      Hi Maggie, Great question. With the same constituents and purity, our Vitality line is labeled for dietary use, while the topical/aromatic line is labeled for topical and aromatic uses. We recommend referring to the usage directions on each individual product label. Thanks for stopping by!

    Hi, can I diffuse thieves essential oil when 6 months old baby is around?

    • Young Living June 23, 2016 - 9:44 am Reply

      Hi Yin, Thank you for your question. To safeguard the health of your children, the essential oils should not be diffused in their immediate proximity or for long periods of time without the prior consent of a pediatric physician. We also suggest diffusing a small amount of essential oil for short periods of time until you have determined if your children have any sensitivity to diffusing.

    • beth ellis March 14, 2017 - 9:57 pm Reply

      so for a few years I have been using the original
      thieves in my tea before there was a vitality line-should I not have been? I still have two bottles or the original thieves–am I now only supposed to use those for diffusing and cleaning and not internal?

      • Young Living March 15, 2017 - 10:07 am Reply

        Excellent question! Thieves essential oil is labeled for aromatic or topical use and therefore not for internal use. We recommend using our Thieves Vitality™ which is labeled for dietary use and is a great choice to be added to your favorite beverages or cooking! Hope that helps, but when in doubt always read the labeling for uses on the bottle.

      Hi Lisa, Great question! It should be okay to use the household cleaner on granite, however please ensure that it is highly diluted. Thanks for stopping by!

    What is the pH of Thieves?

    • Young Living March 30, 2016 - 9:44 am Reply

      Hi Dana, Thieves essential oil does not have a pH as essential oils do not contain water.

  • Regina @ A Journaled Life March 14, 2016 - 12:29 pm Reply

    Drops in my water is just fantastic, but a new favorite discovery is Thieves vitality in my ice cream! Yum!!!

  • Brittany March 9, 2016 - 7:39 am Reply

    How much thieves is safe to diffuse? I use it for immune support and add 4 drops every night to my diffuser and sleep. Its done by the morning. I have not gotten sick once this winter. But I just saw on the bottle it says to diffuse for 10 mins…. am I doing way too much?

    • Young Living April 6, 2016 - 2:08 pm Reply

      Hi Brittany, Please follow the directions for aromatic use on the Thieves® product label. The amount of time for diffusing is a safety standard put in place to address certain possible sensitivity issues for longer diffusion periods. If you have concerns about exceeding the recommended diffusing time, please speak with your health care provider for specific recommendations for you. Thanks for stopping by!

    Where to start!? Rollerball on neck, feet, etc. Spray on everything! Diffuse, laundry, & dishwasher.

    I love the Thieves foaming soap to wash my hands in the bathroom and the kitchen. I also use the Thieves household cleaner on my floors and counter tops. My whole house smells so great so I do hope that more people will give it a try because they will not be disappointed.

    Love to use thieves vitality in 40 oz of water for my vegetables and fruits. I use Thieves to sanitize my kitchen counter tops.

  • Sue Ott February 28, 2016 - 5:17 pm Reply

    I add 1 or 2 drops of Thieves to my steam mop to use on all of my floors including carpets.

    • Tracy July 26, 2016 - 7:03 pm Reply

      Do you find adding Thieves to the steam mop really helps to clean your floors? I have a steam mop. I also have two dogs and sometimes I don’t feel the steam mop is getting out all the dirt, slobber, etc. thanks for any advice. Just started using essential oils a few weeks ago. How do you use it on your carpets?

    Our favorite uses for Thieves is the sanitizing spray for any surface.

    I’ve read that thieves is not safe to use or diffuse on children younger than 10. What’s the safely with thieves and infants??

    • Young Living March 30, 2016 - 9:40 am Reply

      Hi Kimberly, Many essential oils are appropriate for use on children with dilution. We recommend that you always follow the label instructions to determine which oils are appropriate and due to the extreme sensitivity of infants, we would suggest discussing the use of Thieves with your baby’s pediatrician.

  • Kim February 21, 2016 - 8:14 pm Reply

    Use in my Ningxia every morning !! Love it!! I also love Thieves Vitality on a spoonful of agava!!

    • Virginia Zerdelian August 10, 2016 - 2:36 pm Reply

      Agave has been researched and the conclusion is that shouldn’t be the preferable sweetener. You may use stevia instead.
