So, I shared on my facebook page a while back that I have been very interested in learning more about essential oils and how I can use them for my family as we move toward more a more natural lifestyle. That post ended up being one of my most highly interacted with, and it became obvious that a lot of you are interested in essential oils as well.
So, when Carrie and Melinda from Essential Oil Living (independent Young Living distributors) contacted me about doing a review and giveaway on my blog, I was very excited to be able to try these products, and offer a giveaway for YOU as well.
About the Products
They sent me the following products:
- Thieves Foaming Hand Soap
- Thieves Aromabright toothpaste
- Thieves Essential Oil
And here is some of what Melinda had to say about the products. I love a good story, and the thieves blend certainly has one!
Thieves is a proprietary essential oil blend created by Gary Young. This blend was created based on a “recipe” from the Middle Ages used by a band of thieves to protect themselves from the Black Plague ravishing Europe. These thieves robbed the possessions of those who had died from the disease, and yet they managed to remain perfectly healthy. When the robbers were apprehended, they were forced to give up their secret. In turned out, that these thieves were educated in which plants provided protection against disease.
Thieves is an essential oil blend comprised of five individual essential oils: clove, lemon, cinnamon bark, eucaliptys, and rosemary. Each of these oils are powerful fighters of germs on their own, but when they are combined the provide a powerful way to eliminate bacteria.
The essential oils that make up the Thieves blend offer powerful, natural anti-bacterial properties, and can be used in a multitude of ways.
What We Thought
We love these products. I love the smell, which is a rich, spicy aroma. It is a nice change to have that spicy, natural smell as opposed to a chemical perfume-y smell. I am so sick of processed, chemical based things in my life, and this is a good way to keep on that path of getting those things out! We all really love the foaming hand soap for all these reasons.
The toothpaste was a bit strange to me at first, because I am more used to traditional store bought brands, and not natural toothpaste. However, I quickly got used to the new texture, and, as I remarked to my husband the first night I used it, it really did make my teeth feel clean.
I am excited to continue experimenting with the Thieves essential oil blend. When Melinda sent it to me, she sent me a link to a list of 100 uses for Thieves, so I am very excited to keep trying it out.
