Thief by Third Day

So, I used to be heavily involved in the creative arts, and hope to get back to it someday. Inspired by the song “Thief”, and active imagination, and the Lord, this came about, and nearly 10 years later, it still seems to touch people. I hope you enjoy!


Pain Cream

This combo is what got me started on essential oils when I hurt my back. I added the oils to lotion, and realized I had a winner for me!! I use my coconut cloud cream as my base, but really, any unscented lotion will work in a pinch.


4-6 oz unscented cream/lotion (you can use the coconut cloud cream without the other oils)

6-8 drops Valor essential oil

6-8 drops Panaway essential oil

6-8 drops peppermint essential oil

Mix together and store in a glass jar. Apply directly to affected areas as needed.

Valor works with more than just the physical aspect of the body. Renowned for its strengthening qualities, it enhances an individual’s internal resources. It also has been found to help energy alignment in the body. It contains spruce, rosewood, blue tansy, and frankincense.
