Thieves Essential Oil has to be one of the most useful Essential Oils from Young Living there is!
Thieves® essential oil blend was inspired by the legend of four 15th-century French thieves, who formulated a special aromatic blend composed of clove, rosemary, and other botanicals to use while robbing the dead and dying.
Our one-of-a-kind Thieves blend, crafted in the spirit of that legendary blend, contains powerful essential oils that defend and protect.
The Story Behind The Thieves Essential Oil Blend
The Thieves® Oil Recipe was created by Gary Young in the early 1990’s during his study and research on Essential Oils.
According to Gary, there are 17 different versions of the “Story of Thieves” or the story of “The Four Thieves” and each story contains a different list of oils.
Intrigued by these different “Thieves Oil Recipes” he extensively researched the properties of each of the different oils.
Choosing certain oils due to their chemical structure and anti-infectious properties he created his own powerful blend now known as Young Living’s Thieves® Oil Blend.
The Story of the Four Thieves
The thieves were actually spice traders and merchants who imported spices, including cinnamon and clove from India. When the Black Plague hit, all international shipping and trade was closed down. Unable to do business, these spice traders quickly ran out of money and had to find a way to support themselves.
Since everyone was afraid to touch the dead bodies, they decided to loot the homes and bodies of the plaque victims. They would take clothes, jewelry, pots and pans, and then barter or trade them for food and money. They knew they wouldn’t get sick if they rubbed vinegar, oils, and certain spices all over their bodies.
Their plan worked and they were able to set up a very lucrative pawn business. Until the King found out…
When the King heard about the story of the thieves he wanted to know their secret. He wanted to know how they were able to touch dead bodies without getting sick! How did they protect themselves from the dreaded disease?
He sent his Constables out to capture them. Four of the thieves were caught and brought before the King. He gave them a choice to either share their secret formula of “immunity” or be burned at the stake. The four thieves decided to share their secret formula with the King.
The King immediately posted the thieves secret formula all over the town.
Hence the story of the four thieves.
