“I can’t stand a thief!” I’ve heard this my entire life. After a brief education & extended research, this word developed a whole new meaning for me around a year ago. I’ve learned that not all Thieves are bad. Yes, you read that correctly. The Thieves Essential Oil is actually a wonderful multipurpose oil. Lately, several have asked questions concerning this oil; thus the reason for this article.
The History of Thieves According to YoungLiving: “Europeans began producing essential oils in the 12th century. During the Plague of the 15th century, certain thieves robbed the dead without becoming infected. Finally, four thieves were captured in Marseilles, France, and charged with robbing the dead and dying victims of the plague. At the trial, the magistrate offered them leniency if they would reveal how they managed to avoid contracting the dreaded infection, in spite of their close contact with infected corpses. It was disclosed that these thieves were perfumers and spice traders who had rubbed themselves with a concoction of aromatic herbs (cinnamon, clove, and oregano).The formula for the Young Living Essential Oil blend, Thieves, is derived from the aromatic herbs used by the thieves of 15th century France.”
