Healthy Lung Support
Dilute 15 drops with 15 drops of carrier oil. Massage over lungs, chest and back.
Minor Aches associated with daily activities
Dilute 15 drops with 15 drops of carrier oil. Massage into lower back, on the upper back of thighs, and back of neck.
*Note: When I get minor body aches, I massage Thieves undiluted or “neat” to my lower back, and on the top back of my thighs. Personally this works better for me.
Some members of our family have sensitive skin, and Thieves Oil is too "hot" for them to apply undiluted, like I do on my back and thighs. Diluting thieves oil is the recommended way for use. Always test for sensitivity and have vegetable oil nearby to wipe off if necessary.

These recipes may prove beneficial in supporting the body in healing itself. I firmly believe that it is the body that heals. I also highly recommend seeking professional medical care and advise when necessary.
