Thieves 101 Class

Welcome to the Thieves 101 Class! If you started your Young Living adventure with The Thieves Premium Starter Kit than this is definitely a great place to start. It’s also for anyone wanting to get to know the Thieves line a little better. And if you’re starting to regret that you didn’t choose this yourself, there are two options that might make you a little less left out. The Thieves Essential Rewards Kit (exclusive for those who sign up for Essential Rewards) and the Thieves Home Cleaning Kit. Either way, this is the class for you.

The comments next to the pictures are the experiences of my family. In compliance with Young Living Policy and status of me not being a doctor, I can not diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease. Information shared is from my own anecdotal experience and Young Living publications. I also share excerpts from the Life Science Essential Oils Desk Reference.

We have little (and big) bottles of Thieves stashed everywhere. I consider this my go-to option when it comes to germs. My husband even used to rub it through his facial hair when he worked customer service and I swear he never got sick!

Thieves also comes in the Vitality Line! That means it is 100% approved for dietary use. Don’t let the different colored labels fool you. The exact same oil is in both bottles. I know, it’s complicated. It has to do with an FDA rule about things being labeled for internal and external purposes on the same label. You’ll receive the colored label, not the white label in your kit but I’m including ALL of the information here.


The proprietary blend used in Thieves Essential Oil was inspired by the legend of four 15th-century French thieves who formulated and wore a special aromatic combination of clove, rosemary, vinegar, and other botanicals. French authorities recognized 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. Combining Clove, Cinnamon, Lemon, Eucalyptus, and Rosemary essential oils, Thieves Vitality is one of our most popular products.

So I’m not going to tell you that this suddenly made cleaning fun, but it did make it easier for me to put the spray bottle in my children’s hands. Oh yeah, even the little ones. And the bottle lasts a really long time because you’re only using a cap (or two if you’re feeling froggy) at a time.

My two cents: We keep two spray bottles with Thieves Household Cleaner. One is a lighter ratio with an added tablespoon of vinegar and the other is a heavier ratio for everything else. And by everything else I really do mean everything else. From counters to the stove to the toilet in the bathroom. We don’t have a lot of square footage but every inch of it smells good.

I still have my original two foam pumps. I keep one in the bathroom and one in the kitchen. I thought I would miss the variety of a certain B&B store but I LOVE the smell of this soap.

Pro Tip: This can be diluted to make two or even three bottles if you so choose. Just pour the extra soap into a glass container for storage, add an extra drop or three of Thieves or Lemon Essential Oil, and top off with distilled water. Just make sure you leave enough room for the pump or you’ll have a very clean mess on your hands. You can purchase a large refill for your dispensers here.


Keeping hands clean is one of the most important things you can do to avoid getting sick and spreading germs to others. With a formula safe for the whole family to use, Thieves Foaming Hand Soap gently and effectively cleanses hands with the power of pure essential oils and cleansing botanicals. Combining the germ-fighting power of denatured alcohol with the skin-conditioning ingredients of gingko biloba and aloe vera, Thieves Foaming Hand Soap is an excellent way to protect your skin from both germs and dryness.


  • Combines Thieves, Lemon, and Orange essential oils with other naturally derived ingredients to clean hands
  • Instant foam makes it easy to lather and rinse
  • Leaves skin soft and clean with a light Thieves scent
  • Delivers a gentle clean for the whole family
  • Formulated with naturally derived, plant-based ingredients
  • Works as a gentle and effective alternative to commercial hand soaps

This stuff is intense the first time you use it but once I got past the shock…I LOVED it! I have perpetually dry mouth from my Sjogren’s that commercial mouthwashes tend to make worse. This didn’t dry me out at all! My kids will also grab this for a quick rinse anytime they lose a tooth or bite their tongue.

Pro Tip: Do not remove the inside covering from the mouth of the bottle. Instead poke a hole in the circle and then you can squeeze out the mouthwash into a cup instead of having to pour. This makes for a much cleaner bottle in the long run.

This handy little 1oz bottle fits perfectly into the purse too. (I really didn’t think my purse was this big…) My favorite thing to spray? Shopping carts. Especially during flu season. Just the thought of how many people touch those carts before me gives me the oogies.

Ah Stress Away…how we love you when we’re teaching fractions. Or teenagers to drive. Or Littles to wait. The addition of vanilla to this blend really makes it feel like a vacation in a bottle. Don’t think I haven’t been caught huffing it in parking lots after clothes shopping for three girls.

It includes botanicals with influence that spans the globe, including Copaiba, which has been used since the 16th century in Brazil; Lavender, a staple in the Provence region of France; and Cedarwood, which can be found in Morocco and the United States. With these essential oils and the addition of Lime and vanilla, Stress Away was specially formulated by Founder D. Gary Young to calm the mind and help you take on life’s challenges with its soothing aroma.
Stress Away essential oil blend joined the Young Living family in 2016.
