    How to Make Thieves Oil and Why You Should Be Using it Daily

    Most of you probably know what Thieves Oil is, but if not have I got a story for you?! The name and recipe for Thieves Oil have an interesting backstory and explains why this blend of oils is so good for you.

    The recipe varies and dates back to the Middle Ages where Thieves Oil kept a group of merchants safe from the Black Plague. The mixtures of antiseptic, antibacterial, and antimicrobial properties were able to stave off the Plague and keep these merchants safe.

    I like how there are a few different formulations. My mother in law was a big fan of essential oils for many years. She was a bit ahead of her time. She had a very good diet, explored the power of the mind, and used holistic medicine. She had a long life.

    It's a essential for any home and so lovely to use in a bath when feeling a cold coming. Essential oils and terpines are hugely important for us all.

    Terpenes are highly aromatic compounds that determine the smell of many plants and herbs, such as rosemary and lavender, and some animals. Cannabis plants have a huge variety and many people choose strains for their terpines.

    Terpines also attract and repel all sorts of insects and help in attracting pollenators.

    They affect your mood as do essential oils alongside the healing capabilitys for many symptoms.

    I will share my recipe for the oil although we call it pirate oil it's basically the same. You can switch up some of the essential oils if you wish I will give a idea of variety if you'd like.

    Thanks for sharing your blend, Tribe. Pirate oil, I like it. (I have a skewed and fictitious idea of pirates, i.e. movies, festivals)
