To prevent illness during the winter season, a few drops of The Four Thieves blend can be used topically daily, as it has strong antiviral and antibacterial properties that are great for preventing or combating colds, ‘flu and infections. It is best applied on the soles of the feet where the skin is thicker, as clove and cinnamon oils can cause skin irritation if used undiluted on sensitive skin.

Mix up a batch consisting of 5 ml of the concentrate in 20 ml of jojoba carrier oil and apply a few drops to each foot daily for a potent treatment. Please make sure the oils used are top quality, complete and very fresh when using them regularly.
