Cinnamon oil and clove oil are both present in thieves oil, and both of these oils possess strong antibacterial properties, which aid the respiratory system in that they fight off infections. Upper respiratory infections, more commonly known as common colds, and influenza, to give two examples, are ailments which range from mild to moderate, affecting most people up to two or three times a year. When thieves oil is used in diffusers, or as the main ingredient in steam ingestion, it is particularly good at opening up the respiratory faculties by moistening the back of the throat and the muscles involved in the breathing process.
For best results dispense a few drops of Theives oil into a mist diffuser or humidifier. Use caution when applying to your skin from the roll-on as it may cause an allergic reaction in some people.
