This formula will help you and your family stay healthy and get sick less often, by providing a topical immunity booster! It is the same therapeutic formulation used in the powerful Four Thieves Spray.
This all-natural formula has safe but powerful ingredients mixed in a base of sunflower and 100% pure essential oils extracted from plants. This delivers superior protection from cold and flu illnesses. These ingredients have been used for thousands of years to prevent and cure illness. Each bottle is individually blended together by hand to provide you the highest quality possible.
This formula contains the same powerful, germ-killing therapeutic grade essential oils as the Four Thieves Spray!
Why a rubbing oil? Our skin is the largest organ in the body and our first line of immunity. It is permeable to all chemicals, whether they be good or bad. Medical research shows that significant amounts of ingredients penetrate the skin and go directly into the blood stream. Because our skin is so highly permeable, when we use powerful, natural ingredients they can help build us up!
Today, the administration of drugs and medicines is often through transdermal skin patches and other topical applications. This has been shown to be up to 95% more effective than oral medication. An interesting point is the fact that cosmetic manufacturers are not supposed to claim that the skin absorbs their products. If they did the products would be labeled a drug and governed by much stricter regulations!
Because I know just how powerful a topical application can be, I have taken our most powerful and NATURAL formula's and added them to a pure, nourishing oil base*
Adults and children 2 years and older, apply 10-30 drops (1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon in palm of hand) and massage onto feet and ankles at bedtime and in morning. Use every day all year or during cough, cold and flu season.
What is the difference between a flu and a cold? The main difference between the two is the symptoms. Influenza, caused by one of three different viruses (A, B, or C), is the more brutish, causing high fever, joint aches, and severe fatigue in addition to upper- and lower-respiratory distress. The common cold, caused by any one of two hundred bugs, most of them rhinoviruses, is more benign but usually lasts longer. More elementally, the flu can kill you; a cold can't.
Either way, we are happy to offer you our line of FOUR THIEVES FORMULATIONS to help aid you in preventing or catching either a flu or cold.
HISTORY OF THE FOUR THIEVES
A bit of background into how the Four Thieves Products we offer came about: In 1413, the bubonic plague decimated Europe. During that time, there were four thieves who robbed the dead and dying victims of the Black Death. When they were captured, they were told they must reveal how they resisted contracting the deadly plague. It was obvious that they had some type of special resistance. They explained that one of them was an herbalist and he revealed the special concoction of herbs that they rubbed on their clothes, hands,hair, face, etc. To prove is this was true, they were taken from prison and forced to bury the dead with the promise that if they lived, they would go free. They lived and everyone then knew it was true.
In today's modern scientific world, it is known that most viruses, fungi, and bacteria cannot live in the presence of many essential oils, especially those high in phenols, carcacrol, thymol, and terpenes.
All of Our "Grandma's Four Thieves Products" contain a THERAPEUTIC GRADE blend of those oils! A nearly identical blend was tested at Weber State University (1997) for its potent antimicrobial properties and found to have a 99.96 percent effectiveness rate against airborne bacteria.
