Protect & Defend essential oil blend is a powerful combination of Clove, Lemon, Cinnamon, Eucalyptus Radiata, and Rosemary essential oils for an aromatic blend that fills any space with a rich, spicy aroma.

You may also recognize this blend as "Thieves"*. Cool story - it was inspired by the legend of four 15th-century French thieves who formulated a special aromatic blend composed of clove, rosemary, and other botanicals used while robbing the dead and dying victims of the Black Plague! Their blend, as well as variations of it, is still used today and has been proven by a study at Weber State University in Utah to have antibacterial, antiseptic and antiviral, and immune-stimulating properties, even able to kill up to 99% of airborne bacteria.

The benefits of this blend include incredible cleaning power, amazing immune-boosting and general health benefits and an irresistibly spicy scent. Looking to make your home smell as clean as it looks? Diffuse our Protect & Defend oil blend throughout the house for an aroma that makes every room smell more like fall baking than harsh cleaning formulas.

Safety Guidelines & Explanations:

Please see the following websites for more safety tips:


Please keep out of the heat, the sun and the light. It is best to store essential oils in a cool, dark place or room. Do not leave in your vehicle in warm (75+ degrees) or very cold temperatures. Heat especially destroys the medicinal/therapeutic properties of essential oils. Make sure to keep cap tightly closed. It is best to use your essential oils within one year, although they will last much longer than that if taken care of properly (above). If not taken care of properly, essential oils can degrade and/or go rancid, and will no longer be medicinal/therapeutic for you.
