It's a rough world we live in today. The germs, bacteria and respiratory viruses that surround us have never been stronger or more antibiotic-resistant. With cold and flu season in full swing it's more important than ever to keep your body on alert against attacks to your immune system. Whether you're trying to battle the "bug" at the office or warding off household germs that family members leave behind, you should have a bottle of Legend of the Thieves Oil in your natural first aid kit to help kill germs in your body and around your home.
And what is the origin of Legend of the Thieves Oil, that goes by many other names (Thieves Oil, Legends Oil, etc). Legend has it that in Medieval Times during the Black Death period in and around the 1500's, Thieves concocted a vinegar to protect them while they were at work robbing those who had been attained by bubonic plague. Many, many years later, this vinegar was replicated and lives on today as an essential in every household during flu season.

Note: Essential Oils are powerful and should be used respectfully. My personal recommendations for the use of Essential Oils are that only adults in good health should consider their use. Essential Oils should never be used without being diluted in high quality carrier oils such as Sweet Almond Oil, Jojoba or Sesame Seed oil. For the use of Essential Oils with children, I always recommend that you do your research in advance.
