Medieval Thieves Roll On
You've heard the legend of the robbers taking valuables off of plague victims? Well, whether or not the story is true, this formula sure does work well on fighting harmful microbes (and it smells spicy yummy too)! This is not a kid-safe blend for children under 10, but we are formulating one and it will be available soon!
We have several formulas of already diluted, ready-to-apply, Haven-exclusive essential oil blends in .35 ounce roller ball vials. This size is convenient to tuck into a pocket or bag!
Ingredients (locally sourced whenever possible):
Extra Virgin Olive Oil*, Eos of Cinnamon*, Clove*, Lemon*, Eucalyptus* and Rosemary* (*indicates organic) Diluted to 5%. This formula is not safe for children under 10.
How to Use:
Aromatherapy, or the therapeutic use of essential oils, is powerful. So powerful in fact, it can harm you if you do not use them safely and properly. If it is powerful enough to heal, it can also harm.
Not all oils are safe for children, infants, immuno-compromised people, pregnant women, and the elderly. You should also never use essential oils topically on cats or birds.
Aromatherapy works by entering the bloodstream, and there are two effective ways to do that:
1. Inhalation. Gas exchange in the capillaries of the lungs ensure the fastest method of getting essential oils into your bloodstream. This can be done by inhaling directly from the package or by using a diffuser.
2. Topical application. Again, these are highly concentrated substances that need to be diluted before use. Not only are you throwing money away by applying essential oils undiluted, but you could be damaging the skin and liver. Our roll ons are already diluted to a therapeutic dose of 5%-10%.
PLEASE DO NOT INGEST essential oils. Ingestion is not only less effective in getting the constituents quickly into the bloodstream, it is also unsafe for the mucus membranes and liver (which they come into contact with in the digestive tract).
ALWAYS dilute your essential oils if they come in contact with your skin- in baths, in massages, in products. Or simply buy pre-diluted roll ons like these.
