Thieves Immunity Tea Recipe

While I thoroughly enjoy having a cup of hot tea in the evening hours, this thieves immunity tea recipe is ideal for preventing or aiding cold symptoms and is definitely not something we drink every day.

Thieves Immunity Tea Recipe

That said, anytime someone in our home gets exposed to sickness, feels that slight tingle in the back of their throat, or has a full-blown cold, this immunity tea recipe is one of the natural preventatives we always lean on.


  • 1/2 – 1 Tbsp honey
  • 1 drop of frankincense oil
  • 1 drop thieves oil
  • 1 Tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1 immunity-boosting tea bag


This one is so easy, you guys!

First, pick up some simple immunity-boosting tea bags to keep on hand for making this tea in a pinch.

Our go-to options are Echinacea Plus with elderberry, Throat Coat with eucalyptus, and Throat Coat with echinacea.

Not only will these tea bags enhance the flavor of your thieves tea, but they also have incredible immune system benefits you will need when trying to prevent or recover from an illness.

If leaning on 1 time use tea bags isn’t your jam, simply create your own immunity blend to use in this recipe instead!

Always Add Honey to Your Immunity Tea Recipe

Next, pour some honey into an empty mug, covering the bottom.

Truthfully, I don’t measure the honey (I just eyeball it) but 1/2 Tbsp – 1 Tbsp should be adequate.

Add essential oils, 1-2 drops each, and mix them into the honey.

Then, add a splash of apple cider vinegar.

Again, I don’t typically measure this, but 1 Tbsp is about perfect.

Pouring Hot Water for Tea

Finally, add 6-8 oz of hot water and your tea bag!

It really is that simple, you guys!

Immunity Tea Recipe Variations

While our original thieves immunity tea recipe is typically our go-to, we do sometimes add in other ingredients to maximize the benefits.

Cough Drop for Fighting Colds

If you have a persistent cough or sinus infection, consider adding a thieves cough drop and a drop of copaiba essential oil to the bottom of your mug before adding the hot water.

You can also add in liquid vitamins that are important for recovery and immune system building — such as zinc, vitamin C, or elderberry.
