The Thieves blend (an essential oil mix) is a popular and old fashioned way of keeping the germies away. At first I was skeptical, as I am about most things. However this blend was worn by “thieves” during the plague as they looted the dead. A bit morbid, but it worked for them and it works wonders for us. We rarely get sick and if we do it doesn’t last long. When my daughter wasn’t feeling well I made her this adorable little aromatherapy owl packed with oats, rice, lavender and thieves blend oil. She loved him, takes him everywhere, and named him Hooty Hoo, the owl. You can sew whatever you’d like. I used a soft wool blend felt so he’d be cuddly. I had a bit of filling leftover as he’s only pocket size. Put it in a vase, or a canister. The scent keeps really well. Depending on the materials and details you sew onto yours, you should be able to heat or cool the mixture, similar to any aromatherapy thing you might buy at the store. Enjoy!
