Story of Four Thieves:
"Thieves oil” essential oil blends may be marketed as proprietary formulas today, but herbalists have passed along recipes for the famed “four thieves” remedy for literally hundreds of years. The basic legend has it that four robbers caught rifling through homes in plague-ridden France attained their freedom by revealing why they never got sick from the homes of infected patients. Apparently, the thieves created an herbal vinegar which they drank and sprinkled on themselves every two hours.
The tales of what this concoction contained vary wildly. Modern “four thieves” blends often focus on four to five essential oils. Medical research bears out that these oils—usually lemon, rosemary, clove, cinnamon and eucalyptus—have powerful therapeutic benefits.
