The Story of Thieves

As the bubonic plague decimated Europe in the year 1413, four thieves were captured and 

charged with robbing the dead and dying victims. When the thieves were tried, the magistrate 

offered leniency if they would reveal how they resisted contracting the infection as they 

performed their gruesome acts. The four thieves explained that they were perfumers and spice 

traders and told of a special concoction of aromatic herbs, including cloves and rosemary, that 

they rubbed on their hands, ears and temples. The proprietary Thieves essential oil blend

was created based on research of the recipe used by the thieves of the 15th century. In1997, 

studies conducted at Weber State University showed the Thieves essential oil blend to have a

99.96% success rate against airborne bacteria. The bacteria cultures were sprayed in an 

enclosed area, and Thieves oil blend was diffused for a given amount of time. This can be 

duplicated in the home using a cool-air diffuser.


Diffusing oils in our home has become a daily habit. Cold-air diffusion is putting micro -beads of essential oil into the air. It is an extremely beneficial way to continually expose yourself and your family to the oils. I have mine set on a timer that turns on three times a day. And in fact, I have three diffusers in my home. Even if you do not use therapeutic essential oils topically or internally, the health of your family will dramatically improve if you diffuse oils throughout your house daily. One reason for improved health is that diffused oils raise the vibration of one's environment while clearing it of airborne pathogens.
