Freshen Up With Thieves Spray

Young Living’s popular product is fueled by zesty essential oils.

Touted by loyalists as a quick, convenient and a natural disinfectant, the warm and zesty Young Living Thieves Spray ($12) is a portable essential oil spray ideal for cleaning small surfaces. Just one small spray freshens counters, sinks, door handles, toilets, and more using only naturally derived, plant-based ingredients and the powerful spicy-citrus scent of Thieves essential oil blend.

The company, Young Living, recommends using Thieves Spray on everything from light switches to stinky shoes. It is billed as safe to use around your whole family, including children and pets too. Ingredients include: Alcohol denat., water, caprylic/capric triglyceride, 100% pure, therapeutic-grade essential oil eugenia caryophyllus (clove) bud oil, citrus limon (also 100%) (lemon) peel oil, cinnamomum zeylanicum (100%) (cinnamon) bark oil, eucalyptus radiate (100%) leaf oil, rosmarinus officinalis (100%) (rosemary) leaf oil, lecithin and polysorbate 80.

This is not a new recipe. The blend 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 a key to success.
