Thieves Oil Concentrate (Cost: approximately $1.25 per batch)
- Fill a pot with a quart of water and add the first four ingredients.
- Heat on the stove top to boiling, then reduce the heat and simmer for 30 minutes. Or, once the mixture has boiled, turn off the heat and let it sit for 2 hours.
- Strain the mixture and pour the remaining liquid into a glass jar. Glass is better than plastic for many reasons! But in this case, the essential oils can react with plastic.
- Add the five drops of eucalyptus oil.
A Quick Note On The Ingredients
Make sure to cut your lemon peel and not zest (grate it). I learned this the hard way! See my lemon zest in the picture? It’s really difficult to get the zest back after straining to use again.
