Have been using WhisperGently's 2009 recipe for homemade Thieves Oil concoction for three days only, and I've already felt a huge reduction in stiffness and discomfort in my arthritic knees. I've been rubbing the oil directly into both knees, morning and night.
The thieves oil has also allowed me to sleep far more comfortably and for longer periods over the last few nights - couldn't be happier with these results. Thanks for sharing.
I have had skin issues this winter as I have many winters past; itchy, rashy, welts...on shins, forearms, my back. For some reason I read about Thieves Oil and mixed up a batch. What relief!! I mixed a couple drops with a dab of coconut oil and applied it before I got dressed for work this morning - the relief lasted most of the day and the redness of the breakouts is a little less. I have steroid cream for when I need a "quick fix" but I might just be able to give it up as the Thieves Oil takes care of the itch much better, for me. I mixed the oils according to a recipe I found somewhere....I can't - for the life of me - recall the website:
40 drops CLOVE e.o. - 35 drops LEMON e.o. - 20 drops CINNAMON BUD e.o. - 15 drops EUCALYPTUS e.o. - 10 drops ROSEMARY e.o.
I decided to fraction what I mixed and it turned out pretty well; I didn't use a carrier oil - just added a drop or two to a little coconut oil.
Also, I felt like I was coming down with a cold yesterday so decided to simmer a pan of water on the stove, to which I added several drops of "my Thieves Oil" - if it's mind over matter, I don't care! Maybe I was just overtired after having my grandson for an overnight....I feel better today and that can't be a bad thing. : -) I also have been taking 1/2 teaspoon of 500 ppm Colloidal Silver for a couple months (daily during the week, then my schedule gets thrown to the wind on the weekends) and have been able to avoid the viruses that are rampant this winter. I had nothin' to lose by trying this and I've gained so much!
