Back to Thieves

Short story of Thieves:

Inspired by the legend of four 15th-century French thieves who formulated and wore a special aromatic combination of clove, rosemary and other botanicals that they believed provided protection while they were robbing. 

French authorities recognised that there was such value in this mixture that upon the thieves’ capture, they received a more merciful punishment on condition that they divulge the ingredients in their secret formula.

Due to its potent properties an entire cleaning and oral health range has even been formulated so it's super convenient for you to use!

Recipe - Thieves Cleaner

Imagine having a single product to replace all your current cleaning products… Thieves Household Cleaner is this product! 

It only cost 93 cents to make your own 500ml general surface spray using 1 small capful (10ml) of cleaner mixed with some water. It effectively (and safely) cleans your kitchen, oven, bathroom (great for mould!), shower, glass, stainless steel etc.  Most ‘natural’ options at the supermarket cost at least $5 or more!

And you know it’s safe in case your kids eat off the floor…or you…no judgement here ;-)

I love making my own all-purpose surface cleaner and handwash and I just add some extra essential oils based on if I’d like a citrus, herbal or floral scent! Purification, Pine and Peppermint are great for the kitchen/bathrooms, and citrus and florals are lovely in  handwash.


Add some flavour!


As you already know, these oils are POTENT!! So imagine using

  • A single drop of Peppermint oil in batch of delicious raw cacao bliss balls?

  • Some Orange and Cinnamon oil in chocolate smoothie?

  • A drop of Rosemary in your favourite slow-cooking dish?

  • A drop of Lemon in your water or kombucha...or Lime in your Mojito ;-)

Over 30 of Young Living’s essential oils adhere to the guidelines set by Food Standards Australia and NZ – so you can be sure that they’re safe to use in your kitchen, or commercial kitchen in a cafe or restaurant. 

Go on, get creative!


International markets: As Young Living is a global company, their oils must comply to each country’s unique labelling laws. This means in the US they have a range of ‘Vitality’ oils to show which you can ingest or take as a dietary supplement. In Europe and the UK they have a range of separate “Plus” oils. Please know they are the same oils though as the oil that is just labelled for aromatic and topical use.

Recipe - Bliss Balls

These are my favourite go-to snack! The kids love them too – often they don’t make it into balls and we each just use a teaspoon!

You can also easily change the flavours by using a different combination of nuts, and also play around with your favourite flavours of essential oils. I love Orange, Peppermint, and Lavender/Orange. Or leave out the cacao and use some Lemon Myrtle or Lemon/Lime/Grapefruit for a refreshing twist!


NingXia Red - Energise, fortify and revitalise

As a mum you can’t afford to be on the sidelines, having a shot of this keeps me on the court and stay ahead of the game. And really - this doesn’t just apply to mums - but EVERYONE deserves this!

This is DELICIOUS! It’s a superjuice based on the Wolfberry (Gojiberry) from the NingXia region in China where the locals and doctors claim that this plays a key part in enhancing their longevity. 

Our whole family has 1x30ml shot of this per day. It’s our preventive insurance policy and keeps us running at optimum levels, and is jam packed with antioxidants which protects your body against free-radicals (these are unwanted and can lead to disease).  

It also contains these powerful ingredients that support normal cellular function: Grape seed extract, blueberry, plum, aronia, cherry and pomegranate, and is sweetened with Stevia which is a zero-calorie sweetener and it doesn’t spike blood sugar! And it’s infused with 4 citrus oils including orange and lemon (which have a naturally occurring constituent d-limonene), yuzu and tangerine.


30ml of NingXia Red is equivalent (in biological activity) to:

  • 59 broccoli florets

  • 4.5kg of spinach

  • 22 carrots

  • 34 onions

  • 100 oranges

  • 130 tomatoes

  • 814 blueberries

  • 22,814 almonds

  • 73 strawberries

  • 93 apples

The NingXia Wolberries (Gojiberries) also contain:

  • 15% protein

  • 18 types of amino acids

  • 21 trace minerals

  • 29 fatty acids

  • Vitamins B1, B2, B6, E, beta carotene and vitamin C


If you’d like a boost of energy in the morning then do yourself a favour and try this out for 3 months and see how you’re feeling. I have heard some a-mazing testimonials when people started drinking this, so if longevity and optimum health is something you want to strive for then add this to your order!

Protect your body

Did you know that Young Living also has a range of TGA (Australia’s Therapeutic Goods Association) approved oil-infused supplements?  All of these are infused with essential oils, in addition to other premium herbs, oils and minerals that are sourced from the quality sources to ensure the potency and effectiveness to keep you protected.

Why supplement? I’m a big advocate for whole food nutrition and trying to get the majority of vitamins and minerals from our food sources directly. But our soils over the decades have had their mineral content depleted, which means our food just isn't as nutritious as it once was. For me, selectively supplementing with QUALITY ingredients, as most commercial vitamins are completely synthetic, is how I choose to keep us above the wellness line.

The most popular ones include:

  • OmegaGize which is a potent fish oil (that isn’t RANCID like most commercial fish oils are!) that also contains CoQ10, vitamin D and is persevered with Clove essential oil (remember this has the highest antioxidant rating on the planet!)

  • Inner Defense contains only essential oils including Thieves (the powerhouse oil!) but with added Thyme, Oregano and Lemongrass oils. As the name implies, this will definitely defend and protect your inner defense (immune) system and great for the change of seasons!

  • Longevity is a potent blend of fat-soluable antioxidants to protect cells and tissues from the damaging effects of free radicals. It contains Clove, Frankincense, Orange and Thyme.

  • Digest and Cleanse are a combination of oils that tummies love. So many of us have digestive issues, and this interferes with us being able to absorb the full range of nutrients for our food, so this supplement is a great addition to support your gut health.

  • Mineral Essence is a natural liquid mineral complex, containing full-spectrum ionic minerals that are the most efficiently absorbed form of minerals available.

  • Sulfurzyme and BLM (Bones, Ligaments & Muscles) are 2 great products to support your muscles and joints and provide temporary relief from the pain of osteoarthritis.

  • Slique Essence includes a combination of citrus oils which your detox systems just love, and Ocotea which helps curb those cravings. Just add it to your tea or smoothie as part of a healthy weight management plan (and definitely include NingXia Red with this combination)
