Thieves’ Oil Recipe – Research Says It Really Works

During the Middle Ages while the black plague was trying to wipe out the population of Europe. The story goes that thieves capitalized on the situation by stealing the belongings of the dead and dying. Yet, despite their contact with the deadly bacteria, the thieves didn’t contract the disease. The theory is that is because these thieves were also merchants of herbals and oils.

Research has shown that the essential oils used in our Thieves’ Oil are an effective means of keeping the flu and colds at bay. They will also help you heal faster and feel better should you get sick.
