Frankincense (Boswellia carterii). This holy anointing oil has been used in religious ceremonies for thousands of years. It was well known during the time of Christ for its healing and anointing powers and was used to treat every conceivable illness known. It increases spiritual awareness, uplifts spirits, improves attitudes, and promotes meditation.

Thieves. This blend contains Cinnamon, Clove, Rosemary, Lemon, and Eucalyptus Radiata. Diffusing it in your home is very powerful. Diffuse it daily to eliminate unwanted odors. Take it as a supplement to support the immune system. Add it to the dishwasher for cleaner dishes. Add it to mop water for cleaner floors. We do make a large container of Thieves Household Cleaner for that purpose. Don’t leave home without Thieves or Thieves Waterless Hand Purifier.

Purification. This blend contains Citronella; Rosemary; Lemongrass, which we distill at our farm in Ecuador; Lavandin, which we distill at our farm in France; Melaleuca Alternifolia; and Myrtle.

Purification is magical for soothing the skin, so use it in a spray bottle to clear skin of blemishes. It’s just amazing.

It also cleanses the air and neutralizes disagreeable odors.
