In addition to Thieves for household uses, Thieves Vitality taken internally can support a healthy immune system and contribute to overall wellness.
Asking me to pick my favorite essential oil is similar to picking a favorite child. You just can’t do it. Thieves, however, would be a top contender for numero uno. It is probably the one oil that I could not live without, nor would I want to.

When they were finally caught and tried, they had to divulge their recipe for the secret tonic that kept them from contracting illnesses.
