Back to Germs
Well It is that time of your again. Kids are going back to school. I know a lot of parents are jumping for joy now. Our college age daughter is ready to finish her 4th year at university at the The University of Aberdeen in Scotland. She is excited to get back to her school routine. She worked all summer at a UK clothing chain and has volunteered at The Gordon Highlanders Museum. There was also some fun with trips to Dublin and London. As I digress, kids are starting back to school and you know that also means germ season. Our lovely darlings bring the germs home to us, then we bring it to community. Who ever said sharing means caring did not know what they were talking about, especially when it comes to germs. Those darlings are little thieves when it comes to our health and well being.
We can educate people until we are blue in the face about proper hand washing, infection control, and flu shots, but those germs still find their way in. Last years the flu season started in October in Colorado. It started earlier than usual. Several of my co-workers came down with the respiratory curd and flu. This frightened me since I was planning the trip to London to see Myah in November. I do not have time to get sick and away from work while using my precious vacation time. I decided it was time to get out the Thieves.
What is the Story behind “The Thieves”
The legend behind the Young Living Essential Oil Blend is that four, 15th century french thieves formulated and wore a special aromatic blend to protect themselves while stealing during the bubonic plague.
What is in it?
Young Living’s Thieves Blend has a blend of Lemon, Clove, Cinnamon Bark, Eucalyptus Radiata, and Rosemary. It has a warm, spicy aroma that is not too overpowering. I used it all last winter on the bottoms of my feet. I put 15 drops in a roller bottle and filled it the rest of the way with fractionated coconut oil. It even went with me to London. Before my trip I would put Thieves in my office diffuser along with either Orange, for a festive aroma or extra Eucalyptus, to clear out the sinuses. It was a game changer for me last year.
Diffuser with Thieves
As fall and winter approaches,, Thieves will be part of my prophylactic routine to avoid the colds and flu that will come around. I recently ordered the cleaning spray to use on my desk at work. I will let you know how that works. My routine is usually good hand washing, getting plenty of rest, drink lots of water, and now Thieves. I want to hear from you. What do you use to protect yourself and family from the cold and flu bugs?
