General Information about Dr. Thief's Shield Oil Formulas

Tips for using Shield Oil

  1. Anoint candles for protection (25% dilution recommended)
  2. Use as a personal fragrance for protection, balance, energy, power (25% dilution recommended)
  3. Add to spell bags to “seal” them and prevent them from being adulterated. (25% dilution recommended)
  4. Anoint crystals, stones, tools, altars to bless, consecrate, and protect (25% dilution recommended)
  5. Diffuse into the air for protection, study, memory work, and energy (any dilution rate from 10% to 100%)
  6. Use the room spray to purify and bless an area.

Whenever you will have direct skin contact with Shield Oil such as for anointing candles, crystals, or tools, it is recommended that you use a diluted blend. For diffusing or warmers, use straight or diluted to 25%. Wearable diffuser pendants work well when you have sensitive skin but wish to wear this as a magical perfume oil.

Created by the Practical Witch Apothecary

Friday Gladheart, author of The Practical Witch's Almanac, has expertly created this blend in the tradition of four thieves oil, but with significant modern improvements based on scientific studies and field research by Witches, psychics, spiritual healers, and light workers.

Antimicrobial Shield

Dr.Thief’s Shield Oil is also designed to be highly protective physically. Although we do not, and cannot legally make any sort of health claims, the oils used in this blend have shown significant antimicrobial properties in numerous scientific studies. We offer Dr. Thief's Shield Oil for spiritual and aromatherapy uses only, and make no claims that it can mitigate, prevent, treat, diagnose, or cure disease.

This oil is the result of meticulous research that began with recipes and remedies from folklore, and continued into modern scientific studies. The resulting blend of pure essential oils should show significant antimicrobial properties based on this diligent research. This blend includes essential oils shown throughout history, and in numerous contemporary studies to be effective anti-fungal,anti-bacterial, or anti-viral. Based on our considerable experience, we have blended these effective ingredients into a synergistic formula.

Clients report using Dr. Thief’s Shield Oil in many inventive ways. Here are some Tips:

  1. Use as a spray for masks and facial coverings. An easy spray can be made for multi-purpose sanitizing needs such as on toys,counter-tops, litter boxes, sinks, door knobs, etc. In a spray bottle, combine:

– 8 ounces of 70% Rubbing Alcohol

– ¼ teaspoon Sea Salt or non-iodized salt

– ½ teaspoon 100% Concentrate Shield Oil (for a final 1% dilution) or 1 teaspoon 100% Concentrate Shield Oil (for extra strength 2% final dilution)

– Shake well before each use and lightly spray clean surfaces. Spray lightly on the outside of face masks and coverings and allow to dry before wearing. Avoid spraying excessively on the inside of masks to avoid skin contact. When spraying multiple surfaces, use in a ventilated area. Alcohol is flammable! Avoid using this spray near open flame, electronics or motors that can emit sparks. To reduce this risk, you can substitute 40% Rubbing Alcohol in this recipe. Shield Oil may separate more readily in 40%, but the normal shake before each use will overcome this issue.

  1. Add1 drop 100% Concentrate Shield Oil to 1 ounce hand sanitizer
  2. Diffuse into the air (the ingredients said to kill air-borne pathogens and remove congestion and phlegm)
  3. Use a 3% dilution topically for scrapes, shallow scratches,inflammation,and cuts. (see dilution rates above).
  4. Use on feet to help defeat fungus at a 10% to 50% dilution (test for sensitivity first)
  5. Add 1 to 3 drops to 12-24 ounces mouthwash
  6. Use at 1% as a massage oil to increase circulation and improve breathing
