This. Stuff. Is. Amazing.
Some of you know that I had the pleasure of traveling to Austin, TX last week for the annual Savings.com SaveUp conference. As always, it was a total blast and I learned a ton to help me continue to make Bargain Blessings a better place for you all.
After all the fun was over, and I got back in Denver, I pretty much immediately came down with a sore throat…lame! The good thing though is that I actually had something that I could do about it! I’ve already put my “kick crud’s butt” practice to the test twice now with perfect success so I jumped right on again. Here is what I did:
1. One drop of Thieves on the bottom of each foot. Did you know that the largest pores in our bodies are found on the bottoms of our feet and that the molecules in Essential Oil are extremely small, allowing them to travel very quickly through our body? Studies have shown that essential oil can be detected in saliva just minutes after being applied to the bottom of ones’ feet…pretty cool!
2. One spritz of Thieves throat spray in my throat. When my friend Rachel told me I could spray this stuff in my throat I thought she was crazy…but I decided to give it a try anyway and I’m so glad I did. Now I will tell you that this stuff is S-T-R-O-N-G…either that or I’m just a total wimp. 😉 But, it has worked wonders for me now three times in a row!
I repeat this every 4-8 hours until I’m feeling better.
Within less than 2 hours my body temperature was feeling back to normal and in less than 24 hours my sore throat was completely non existent! Score! I’ve decided to nickname Thieves the Sore Throat Slayer now and it’s definitely something I’m so grateful to have going into cold and flu season!
Why does it work? I’m always interested to know know the science behind things. Dr. H.K. Link is a researcher at the University of Oklahoma. Here is what he has to say about Thieves:
“Thieves essential oil blend is effective against the flu virus and infectious diseases. When the virus enters the body, it is attached to our cells and then engulfed into the cells. The virus then integrates into our genomes and activate our cells to reproduce. Thieves oil doesn’t affect the attachment of virus to cells. It does not affect the proliferation in our cells. But, it blocks the protein synthesis of the virus, thus it can’t be spread. Other essential oils also have this type of properties.” ~ Dr. H.K. Lin
How neat is that?!
