Here’s the blog post I’ve been promising for ages. I’ve had so many of you comment on the lovely smells wafting around the place lately, and as I make up another batch, I thought it finally time to share my (not-so-secret) secret.
This is the oil you smell as you walk into the studio or if you’re adjusted in savasana. I even use it ’round my place to clean dusty surfaces. But what is this miracle stuff, I hear you ask! Wonder no more, lovely people. This is Thieves Oil.
The old stories tell of grave robbers using this oil back in plague times to keep ’em from picking up the diseases of the dead as they plundered them. Pleasant thought.
But, according to this site, Theives Oil is supposed to be amazing at supporting digestion, reducing inflammation, lowering fevers, reducing stress and even “neutralising bacterial and viral pathogens”. All I can say is that it smells proper nice.
Here’s my tried-and-tested recipe:
- Grab a container jar. You can usually get small, brown glass bottles from places that sell essential oils.
- Add 40 drops of Clove oil
- 20 drops of Cinnamon oil
- 15 drops of Eucalyptus oil
- 35 drops of Lemon oil
- 10 drops of Rosemary oil
You can add this stuff to your washing loads and cleaning spray or maybe use it in a massage oil, for insect bites and minor cuts. Or, my favourite, just throw it in your diffuser and make your place smell great.
If you make some up, let me know how you get on! Happy diffusing, folks!
