Thieves Oil Gives

Several of the oils used in this ancient Thieves Oil blend have antimicrobial properties. So they may help fight bacteria, fungi, or viruses. You can use the Thieves Oil topically on the skin or carefully on small cuts and wounds, perhaps dilute with a carrier oil like Ancient Purity's Black Seed Oil first. In one study, researchers found that Eucalyptus Oil could help with a skin some nasty skin issues. Another, more recent study showed that Clove and Cinnamon Oils have some effect against infections. Research has also found that vapors from Cinnamon Oil stopped other nasty issues. 

Some research exists that supports the antimicrobial properties of the Lemon Oil. In a 2019 study examining several oils, researchers noted that lemon oil has antibacterial and antioxidant effects. In another study, researchers concluded that lemon oil can help against foodborne illness. Rosemary Oil, one of the oils in thieves oil, might help improve a person’s overall mood. A small study on 10 males and 10 females, researchers concluded that rosemary oil produces positive stimulatory effects when people inhale it. These are modern studies that we can't tell you much about you'll have to look. All we can say is Thieves Oil has been around a long time and used for hundreds of years, the fact it still exists and people still talk about it and use it says soemthing to its power. Why not research or find out for yourself.

An Old Secret

thieves essential oil benefits

Ancient History

In 1413 AD the Bubonic Plague, better known as The Black Death/Pestilence/Great Plague was rife in Europe, spreading like wild-fire among citizens of all ages and doctors alike. It seemed impossible at the time to live in the vicinity of anyone with this horrible bacterial disease without contracting it, and, at the time the sickness really did mean ultimate death, there was no cure at all.

During this time, in Marseille - France, 4 men were taking advantage of the death and devastation and became famous for robbing the possessions of the infected and dead - yet never actually catching the disease themselves. People were stunned that these thieves were able to touch the bodies and remain healthy. Word began to spread about a special concoction that the thieves were using to protect themselves. It was said that this special oil could be soaked into a cloth and wrapped over the nose to prevent the ‘pestilence’ from entering.

Eventually these men were captured, at the time the crimes they committed were punishable by burning alive! The judge at their trial was so intrigued by how these men had stayed immune to this terrible disease that he told them if they shared their secret, (they were perfume & spice merchants who were unemployed due to the closure of the sea ports and the devastation of the plague) he would not commit them to the fire. They told that they had prepared an essential oil recipe that, when applied to their hands, ears, temples, feet and a mask over their mouths, kept them safe from infection. The judge stayed true to his word. The men were not burned alive, but were hanged for their crimes instead.

During the plague outbreak in the 15th Century the doctors who treated the Black Death victims put the herbal infusion on their hands, ears, temples and feet and wore beak-like masks stuffed with cloths containing this special blend and lavender. The costume also consisted of an ankle length overcoat along with gloves, boots, a brim hat and an outer over-clothing garment! It is suggested that the beak is how doctors got the long-lasting nickname “quacks” still used today.
