Legend has it that in the 15th-century, French authorities offered leniency to a group of thieves in exchange for their secret aromatic mixture. Their formulation of powerful botanicals was believed to protect them while they pillaged communities.

Centuries later, we know that their secret blend of clove, rosemary, and other botanicals contained powerful, naturally derived constituents that may have protected this band of bandits. Legend or no, Thieves® Vitality™ and our plethora of Thieves products, with the powerful essential oils of Lemon, Clove, Cinnamon Bark, Eucalyptus Radiata, and Rosemary, provide both wellness support and the power to care for your home without synthetics or harsh chemicals.

What are your “legendary” Young Living oils? Let us know in the comments!

  • Hello Cynthia, 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. Due to the extreme sensitivity of infants, we recommend speaking to your child’s pediatrician prior to use for targeted advice.
