Thieves® Oil was developed from historical information about four brothers in 15th century France who would rob graves and deceased victims of the Black Plague in their contaminated homes.
According to the records, these brothers were the sons of a perfumer and herbalist. They would protect themselves from ‘the plague’ with a secret recipe of Thieves® Oil’s natural ingredients including cloves and rosemary that they had come to respect as protective and healing medicinal agents. Later, the robbers were captured and given a lighter sentence in exchange for their recipe.
You’ve probably come across others talking about a particular oil blend that has a name that is a synonymous with “robber.” The modern-day version of this oil is simply a blend of several essential oils that are known for their infection-fighting properties. Anyone can make it if you know the ratios for mixing.
