As the urban legend goes, during the time of the plague in the 1300's, four thieves created a secret recipe to protect themselves. Also known as Thieves Remedy, the essential oils used have many benefits.
Although their motives weren't at all altruistic, (because they were pillaging), the thieves still managed to do some good for the world by creating a recipe that would be passed down from generation to generation, helping countless people with their health and wellness along the way.
I often wonder how the medieval thieves came up with this concoction in the first place back in the 14th century. I can just picture them cooking up the herbs and spices by day and then going around town stealing by night.
Apparently, when they were finally caught, the court gave them leniency if they gave up their recipe that was keeping them from catching the Plague even though they were constantly exposed to it. It looks like they "borrowed" the practice of wearing this aromatic perfume, so to speak, from the physicians of the day, who were doing something similar.
Anyway, the essential oils in this legendary recipe include Clove Bud, Lemon, Cinnamon, Eucalyptus, Rosemary, Thyme, and Myrrh, and together they have a comforting, medicinal aroma.
Personally, with or without this colourful history, I think it's a good idea to stock up on our Medieval Thymes products, especially since we're starting a new school year and are heading into the winter months.
