Flu like symptoms knocked out with Thieves

“Anytime I feel the flu like symptoms coming on, I put 10 drops of Thieves and 5-10 drops of Oregano essential oils into a capsule and top it off with extra virgin olive oil. I take 1 when I first feel the symptoms. Then if I feel I need more, I will take up to 3 spread out during the day. Normally it takes only 1 day and a total of 1-4 capsules and ‘all is well.’ ” – Judy Lucas

This is quite a common occurrence I’ve heard about from other resources as well. And after a bit of research it makes sense of why each of these oils support the body.

3423[1]Thieves is a blend of highly antiviral, antiseptic, antibacterial, anti-infectious essential oils. Studies conducted at Weber State University (Ogden, UT) during 1997 demonstrating it’s killing power against airborne microorganisms. One analysis showed a 90 percent reduction in the number of gram positive Micrococcus luteus organisms after diffusing for 12 minutes. After 20 minutes of diffusing, the kill-rate jumped to 99.3 percent. Another study against the gram negative Pseudomonas aeruginosa showed a kill rate of 99.96 percent after just 12 minutes of diffusion.(1)

Oregano’s medical properties include anti-agind, powerful antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal, antiparasitic, anti-inflamatory, and it an immune stimulant. However, it is noteworthy to state that it can irritate the nasal membranes if inhaled directly.

Remember, that the higher quality of oil used, the better the results. For therapeutic grade essential oils press here.
