Kereru -Good Samaritan Essential Oil Blend
A blend of Eucalyptus Radiata, Rosemary, Lemon, Clove bud, & Cinnamon bark oils
This blend is made up of the same essential oils as Kereru's Thieves Oil blend but the spicy oils are in smaller proportion and the Eucalyptus & Rosemary more apparent. Thieves Oil is a blend of natural essential oils selected for their antibacterial, antiviral, cleansing, and protective qualities. The name comes from the legend of a gang of thieves who stole from the dead and dying during the plague (15th century). They successfully used spices and other botanicals to protect themselves from infection.
It is not suitable for use with babies or young children or during pregnancy.
- In a diffuser or oil burner to cleanse the air in the room and to aid the respiratory system
- As a spray mix at between 1 and 5 % and use as a sanitising spray, shaking frequently. (A hand sanitiser can be made with some of the essential oil blend diluted into a 50/50 mix of water and witch hazel.)
- It can be made into a dilution with a carrier oil eg almond, coconut, or olive oil, etc and rubbed onto the body, the soles of the feet can be a very good place. (Try a very small area first - this patch testing is a good idea with essential oil mixes being applied to the skin.)
- A drop or two in water can make an excellent mouth wash or gargle.
6 drops in 30ml of water or carrier oil makes a 1% mix.
Essential oils should be diluted before use (exceptions are lavender and tea tree which can be applied directly). For massage dilute at a rate of 1 drop of essential oil to 2 mls vegetable oil. Citrus oils should not be applied before exposure to the sun. Some essential oils are toxic if ingested.

Many essential oils should be avoided during pregnancy and breastfeeding, pregnant women should check the suitability of an essential oil with their midwives or other health professional.
