Our immune systems can use a boost especially during cold and flu season. Thieves tea is a great way to help prevent illness and shorten a cold if you happen to catch one anyway.
What is Thieves Essential Oil?
The main ingredient in this tea is Thieves essential oil. It’s a blend of clove, cinnamon, lemon, eucalyptus radiata and rosemary. There is an old legend that during one of the European plagues, four thieves were caught robbing the sick and dying but never caught the plague themselves. It turns out they were wearing masks rubbed with clove, cinnamon, lemon, eucalyptus and rosemary – the Thieves blend! They never caught the highly contagious illness. Today, the Thieves essential oil blend is used to boost the immune system. The pleasant smell and spicy taste is perfect for tea.
