So the story goes: Deep in the Royal English Archives is a 15th century recipe so powerful that it protected those who used it from the black plague. During this time the plague was running rampant through Europe. Four thieves who were robbing the infectious dead bodies of all their possessions, miraculously never contracted the highly infectious plague.
Eventually the thieves were caught and made a deal, sharing their secret for a reduced sentence. They professed herbal knowledge and told stories of their powerful medicinal properties when combined in certain ways.
The traditionally accepted recipe contains a blend of 5 essential oils: Clove bud, lemon, cinnamon bark, rosemary and eucalyptus. Research from Weber State University in Utah showed that the blend has an impressive 99.96% success rate at killing airborne bacteria.
We don’t know whether or not the Thieves story is true, but the essential oils are antiseptic, antiviral, antibacterial, and anti-infectious. Truly, a protective blend!Try our Protector™ essential oil blend undiluted or pre-diluted and bottled with a convenient, roll-on applicator.
