If you are an indigo adult like me, you are sensitive to chemicals, and, unfortunately, they are all around us in the current modern environment.
I will get light-headed walking down the supermarket isle with the “normal” mainstream cleansers, and the idea of bringing them into where I live seems like a terrible idea.
So one of the solutions I have found is to use essential oils to keep my space clean and bacteria free.
The following post comes from a colleague of mine from the massage industry. She sells Young Living Essential OIls.
This particular article is about Thieves Essential Oil Blend, which I love and have used to clear sickness, disinfect wounds and just to smell good!
I sort of feel like this post is a bit of a cop out, and if you think so, too, I apologize. It’s the holidays. I’m busy. But I didn’t want to NOT post something. I hope if you stay and read, that you enjoy and learn.
As always, feedback is appreciated, especially if any of you indigo adults have used Thieves. Share with us how you have enjoyed this oil blend!
Protect Yourself With Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils
By Melodie Kantner
In the news each year we hear about the latest viruses going around and the vaccines that are supposedly going to offer protection, but every year the viruses mutate and grow more resistant and stronger. Antimicrobial products continually have to be upgraded and modified to stay ahead of the ever adaptable pathogens in our environment.
Dr. Valnet points out that pathogenic microorganisms such as viruses and bacteria do not become resistant to essential oils as they do to modern-day synthetic antibiotic drugs. He states, “Infectious microbes do not appear to become accustomed to the essential oils as they do to the many forms of treatment using antibiotics.”
One reason virus and bacteria cannot mutate with the essential oils is because of the chemical constituents that make up essential oils. One essential oil can have anywhere from 200- 800 chemical constituents. It is impossible for a virus to mutate and adapt to that many
chemical constituents. Drugs are made by isolating one or two constituents. A virus can easily mutate and adapt to the drug, making it useless.
“Diseases, viruses, bacteria and fungi are plaguing America and the world. Antibiotics and synthetic antiseptics have created super germs. In fact, traditional medicine is becoming ineffective against these new powerful pathogens. In my opinion, our only hope lies in essential oils.”
— Dr. David Stewart, an expert in Earth Sciences, Natural Medicine and Aromatic Science.
Blends like Thieves and Exodus II (and the accompanying supplement Exodus) I always have on hand, along with other single oils – such as peppermint, clove, lemon, oregano, lavender, only to name a few.
When illness strikes, you need to have them already on hand.
Bacteria are everywhere & some of it could be deadly. Common places that are thriving with bacteria: door knobs, elevator buttons, bathroom faucets, table tops, counter tops and the list goes on. This bacteria is spread in many ways. You pick it up whenever you touch anything.
During cold & flu season and we are exposed all kinds of flu viruses. Colds can be caused by over 100 different types of viral pathogens, and flu viruses continually mutate from year to year. This makes it difficult for you to develop immunity to these ailments.
Although many oils will protect, my number one favorite oil blend for protecting myself and my family . . .
THIEVES OIL BLEND (Order Code #3423)
Thieves is a “must have” for everyone, especially during the cold and flu season. It was created from research about the thieves during the 16th century plague in England who rubbed oils all over their bodies to protect
themselves while they were robbing the dead and dying.
It is a proprietary blend of pure essential oils tested at Weber State University for its potent germ killing properties. Thieves was found to have a 99.96 percent kill rate against airborne bacteria.
It’s very important, not only to rub oils on your body, because it increases the oxygen and increases the immune defense system, but to diffuse the oils in your home so the oils will kill aerosols, virus and bacteria.
That’s where I really like to encourage people to look at how they can diffuse the oils in their homes and clear up the aerosol problems that we deal with.”
Hundreds of Scientific Reports Confirm Antimicrobial Action of Essential Oils in “Thieves Blend ”
