Legendary 4Thieves oil derives its name from a legend of four spice traders who, during the Black Plague of the 16th century, created a powerful concoction of aromatics and herbs. Under the cover of night, they would douse themselves in this protective blend, and plunder the homes of the dead and dying without fear of becoming ill.
Today, these same powerful aromatics can shield you from dangerous micro organisms. The essential oils in this blend have traditionally been used for their antibacterial, antiviral and antiseptic properties, as well as to stimulate the immune, circulatory and respiratory systems.
Pure, high powered ingredients! These are common names but make no mistake ~ they’re not to be trifled with. When the volatile essential oil is distilled from strong, healthy [clove, lemon, cinnamon, rosemary, eucalyptus] plants, as ours are, the result is a volitile oil MANY times more potent than the herb. Do not overuse.
