The History of Thieves Oil Blend

The history of the Thieves oil blend is an interesting story. At first when I heard the name I thought, “Why in the world would someone name an oil blend ‘Thieves’?” Here is the story:

Essential oils come in “singles” or “blends”. Single oils like lemon, peppermint, or lavender are distilled from a single plant. Blends are just that, a blend of different oils for a specific purpose. The oil blend Valor helps people increase their feelings of courage. The Thieves blend was not developed to help people steal, but it does have a good story.

The Plague

Back in the time of the Plague in the 1400s, authorities noticed that thieves were stealing items from the homes of the dead. This puzzled them because everyone that came in contact with someone with the Plague also died. They couldn’t figure out how these thieves were staying alive after being exposed to the Plague. Once caught, the magistrate offered the thieves leniency if they would explain how they were able avoid contracting this deadly disease. It turns out that these thieves were perfumers and spice traders who knew what to use to avoid getting the disease. Hence the name “thieves” was born.
