The tale behind the Four Thieves blend
According to the long-told historic tale, the use of thieves oil dates to the time of the infamous Bubonic Plague or Black Death that devastated a large portion of France. The Black Death ravaged the population and it seemed impossible to be near the contagion without contracting it. At the time, the sickness really did mean ultimate demise.
During this time, four thieves were captured and charged with stealing from the sick and dying. The thieves never contracted the plague, despite their close contact with the Black Death victims.
The crime these four men committed was punishable by burning alive. The judge was so intrigued by how these men had stayed immune to this terrible disease, he told them if they shared their secret he would spare them of this punishment.
The Thieves told the judge their secret. They were perfume and spice merchants who were unemployed due to the closure of the sea ports and the devastation of the plague. They had prepared an essential oil recipe that when applied to their hands, ears, temples, feet and a mask over their mouths, kept them safe from infection. The judge stayed true to his word. The men were not burned alive, but instead they were hanged for their crimes!
Massage onto the soles of the feet and the hands.
Avoid if you suffer from liver problems or are on blood thinning medication. Take care if you have sensitive skin. Avoid if pregnant or if you have been diagnosed with high blood pressure or epilepsy.
