    The History, The Blend & The Benefits

    The Historic Folklore of Thieves Oil

    According to the long-told historic tale….
    The use of thieves oil dates alllll the way back to the year 1413.
    The time of the infamous Bubonic Plague (aka The Black Death) that devastated a large portion of France.
    The Black Death spread like wild-fire amongst the citizens,
    and the doctors alike.
    It seemed impossible to be in the vicinity
    without contracting it, and at the time,
    the sickness really did mean ultimate demise.
    During this time, however, four thieves
    were captured and charged for stealing from the sick and dying.
    The thieves never contracted the plague,
    despite the close contact with the Black-Death victims.
    At this time, the crime these 4 men committed
    was punishable by burning alive.
    The judge was so intrigued by how these men
    had stayed immune to this terrible disease,
    that 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 & 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 & 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.

    From then on, the doctors who treated

    the Black Death victims put the herbal infusion
    on their hands, ears, temples & feet,
    and wore beak-like masks stuffed with cloths
    containing this special blend.
    The beak is how doctors got the long-lasting nickname
    You may recognize this somewhat terrifying uniform
    as a scary Hallowe’en costume worn today.
    Exactly the way you’d want your doctor to dress, right?
