The Legend of Four Thieves®
Thieves® Therapeutic Essential Oil Blend is named for the legendary band of thieves from Marseilles, France who roamed the English countryside robbing the victims of the 15th Century Black Plague. They miraculously escaped the Plague because their ancestors were skilled in the art of distillation of essential oils. They created what was called a “Vinegar” solution of oils to protect themselves from disease. The record of this historic escapade can be found in the Royal London Archives and the legend was showcased in a 1910 issue of the Scientific American Magazine.
