featured products
Probably more than any other blend our Lavender Thieves Protection Blend is our numero uno!  It's versatile enough to protect from cold and flu bugs, it can kill a cold sore, stop an itch and mow down oral infections whether you use it oil pulling or spot application.  But it's preventative properties are worth sharing too. Here's a super easy DAILY protocol to blend up for your family and friends in the name of prevention!  CW Lavender Thieves Salve is gentle enough to use every day, even for young kids and babies. Give the gift that keeps on giving, especially to those who are either unknowing or doubtful about essential oils, they just may see the light after jumping in. Explain to your "newbs" that it's simple, versatile, preventative and, all kinds of amazing if you can get someone to massage it on your feet for you! Calling all Parents, this protocol can create a fun, healthy family tradition every night just before bedtime.  Line up the kiddos for a relaxing foot massage every night, boost their immunity and get the following benefits too... If you break most protective type blends down, this is what you're getting with a daily dose! Cinnamon Bark:  can help level blood sugar, may improve blood circulation, may help prevent heart disease, ease menstrual pain, may help in destroying germs in the gall bladder and the bacteria present in staph infections. Rosemary: Especially helpful for sprains and strains, arthritis, respiratory infection and congestion relief, circulation stimulation, especially helpful for REYNAUDS disease to stimulate circulation. Eucalyptus: Great for respiratory issues and this bonus: if you're experiencing joint and muscle pain, massaging Eucalyptus on the surface of the skin helps to relieve stress and pain. The volatile oil of Eucalyptus is analgesic and anti-inflammatory in nature. Clove:  Useful for boosting the immune system. Its antiviral properties and ability to purify blood increases resistance to disease because the antioxidants in clove essential oil scavenge the body of dangerous free radicals that cause a multitude of diseases like heart disease and certain types of cancer.  AND: Clove essential oil is aphrodisiac in nature, serving as an excellent stress reliever. It has a stimulating effect on the mind and can reduce mental exhaustion and fatigue. When ingested in moderation (dietary standard only), it refreshes the mind and stimulates brain function.

Can you put it directly on a cold sore in its oil form?

I believe it’s the opposite, the feet boast the largest pores and absorb EOs quickly and effectively and that’s been my experience as well. I suppose you’ll need to experiment with this and have your own experience :)

Hi Rebecca,
Thanks for another great recipe! I’m hoping to make some salve for my family members for Christmas using your recipe! I’m excited:) Wondering if you have a recommendation regarding stickers/labels on the outside of the jars…is there a brand that you have found that work well? I know my bottles often get a bit greasy so I’m wondering what labels would hold up the best. Thanks for any input! Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend!
Blessings,
KK

This sounds great but I have a question about the application. Why the feet? I’ve read contradictory information that says the skin on the feet is really too thick for proper absorption and also due to the concentration of sweat glands on the feet it prevents absorption (something about oil & water don’t mix and sweat glands remove not take in). Can you elaborate on why the feet are the best place for absorption?

You need to make a salve catagory…there are so many great recipes and it would be awesome to have them all in one spot

Camp Wander is right on…While sweat glands don’t "absorb, the skin does. Think of skin as primary and glands as secondary (the glands reside behind or under that first and sometimes even second layer of skin (we have multiple) so they aren’t in primary contact with the oils you apply to the foot). Even with a high concentration of glands on the feet, the oils are still absorbed and can cruise on by the glands with no issue. The skin and glands perform their duties via the pores…think of the pores like tunnels on a highway system…they are just a living route. The skin on the feet has the largest pores in the body. They have long been used in Chinese medicine for both absorption and detox regimens. Without being overly technical, PH and Molecular size along with component make up of an oil dictate rate of absorption but skin is constantly drawing in through pores (oxygen, moisture, nutrients, etc).
Don’t think of Essential Oils like “OIL”… the “oil and water don’t mix” premise doesn’t fit Essential Oils as majority of them are water soluble. Even if they weren’t soluble, the only time that would be a problem is if you’re applying to wet or sweaty feet (eeeewwww). Essential Oils are typically absorbed through the pores within seconds to minutes and it’s recommended to apply when your feet are clean & dry. Hope that helps!

I love Shield for myself and will definitely be making this! Do you consider this suitable for small children? I am seeing so much contradictory information about whether or not Shield/Thieves is safe for little guys. What is the next best EO to use as a cold preventative?

Yes, you can. Dab lightly, it may sting a bit if you’re using the blend undiluted. You can always add a little carrier oil to avoid the sting!
