Talk to just about anyone who has been using essential oils and they have probably heard about that blend of oils with a trademarked name that means “burglar” or “robber”. At about $44 for 1/2 oz. retail price it can get expensive quickly if you use a lot. If you already have a good collection of single essential oils you probably have everything you need to make your own “robber” blend.
What makes this blend so useful is that all of the oils used in it have antibacterial, antiseptic, antiviral and antifungal properties. Several also support healthy respiratory and immune systems. Plus it just plain smells good!
To make custom blends you need a clean, dark glass lidded container to put it in. You also need to label your blend with the ingredients and their amounts plus the date you made it. Essential oils last a long time, but after about two years they may begin to lose their potency, so that’s why it’s important to date your blends.
Homemade “Robber” Essential Oil Blend
Clove essential oil 9 drops
Lemon essential oil 7 drops
Cinnamon essential oil 4 drops
Eucalyptus essential oil 3 drops
Rosemary essential oil 2 drops
Place all of the oils in a clean, dark glass bottle. Label with ingredients and date. Roll the capped bottle gently between your hands to warm the oils and help them to mix together. Store your essential oils in a cool, dark place or in the refrigerator.
If you want the convenience of a pre-made blend that also includes the spicy notes of Frankincense try the Bandito blend from BeeYoutiful.
