You left the first comment on my UBP party post! Nice to meet you! :)Hey, you chose some of the same prizes I did. Yes, the Thieves essential oil and the whole Thieves line of products is among my top favorites from Young Living. Can't beat the wonderful smell of cinnamon and lemon! Have you tried it?
