Really long story short... During the Black Plaque in England (1348~1350) about 50% of the population died from this dreaded disease. Curiously enough, many of the thieves that stole from the deceased did not catch the plaque. As documented in the Royal Archives of England, records show that the Monarchy demanded the thieves share their secret. Unknowingly, the thieves had provided themselves a layer of natural protection by applying blends of essential oils to themselves, to mask the undesirable smells of their nefarious deeds.
Science now documents (PubMed, National Institute of Health) the powerful anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-protozoal properties of using certain essential oils and specific blends of essential oils. Although there are variations on this exact formula, here is a basic Thieves Oil 'recipe':
- 10 drops of Clove Oil
- 9 drops of Lemon Oil
- 5 drops of Cinnamon Bark
- 4 drops of Eucalyptus Oil
- 3 drops of Rosemary Oil
Not only does this make a wonderful air freshener, it may help reduce the pathogenic (germ) levels* in the air and on surfaces.
- Use diluted in a spray bottle as a multi-purpose cleaner
- A few drops added to aloe vera gel, makes a great hand sanitizer*
- A drop or two in water, or added to your toothpaste, makes a refreshing oral treatment*

Never ingest any essential oil unless under the advice of a Licensed Practitioner or Medical Professional. It is ALWAYS recommended you use only 100% pure, therapeutic-grade essential oils. Essential oils brands are not equal, and 'fragrance & flavor oils' are NOT necessarily natural or plant derived.
