made up of the most potent immune stimulating and antimicrobial essential oils, this blend will prevent illness & keep germs from spreading in an environment
We originally named this blend Thieves, as it's based on recipes for this most potent antimicrobial herbal blend, found in old perfume texts.
Defence, as it's known today, is an incredibly powerful blend of antiviral & antibacterial essential oils. It is helpful for clearing the air of infection, keeping germs out of your airways, combating congestion & boosting immunity. It truly does it all when it comes to cold & flu season.
Perhaps our favourite thing about Defence Blend is that the aroma, despite being such a strong medicinal blend, is still something you'd choose to have on yourself all day long. A beautiful herbal aroma, with a slightly spicy top note
