I posted this on Natasha's home remedy for the flu thread:
Mother of four here - I use Thieves essential oil at the first signs of sniffles or flu like symtoms. Three drops in warm tea three times a day works every time. (I do give it to the children, but must be used with extreme caution for children under the age of about six.) It's very important to use therapeutic grade
essential oils. I am quite happy with this brand and it is available on amazon.com at a much better price than other top brands.

Supposedly, Thieves was the concoction used by robbers to steal possessions from dead bodies after people died of the bubonic plague, but the thieves never got sick.

I would recommend that anyone interested do a google search of Four Thieves Essential Oils and get informed. Do your own research!
I have included a stockpile of Thieves in our medical preps just in case.
As daily maintenance, I include cinnamon and cloves essential oils (2 of the 5 ingredients in thieves)in my tea. They are very powerful antibiotics and anti-viral tools. There is no one sick in my household. Essential oils are also a great natural way to raise your vibrations.
Hope this helps.
