What is Thieves’ Oil?
Thieve’s Oil is a blend of essential oils, inspired by the legend of four 15th-century French thieves who formulated and wore a special aromatic combination of clove, rosemary, vinegar, and other botanicals that they believed provided protection while they were stealing. French authorities recognized that there was such value in this mixture that upon the thieves’ capture, they received a more merciful punishment on condition that they divulge the ingredients in their secret formula.
Kim Sorden, who created Band of Thieves Hand Sanitizer, tells the legend behind this special blend:
“Centuries before a band of four thieves are believed to have bargained for their lives with a recipe, spiritual advisors protected themselves from the plague with essential herbs preserved in vinegar. This preparation was consumed internally and doused upon the body and clothing.
However, it is the story of the thieves of Marseilles of the 15th century, caught while fleecing the bodies of plague victims for valuables while protected with their own herbal blend, which became associated with this potent mixture.
Timeless in its ability to both protect and soothe, this proprietary blend of Thieves-inspired oil continues the legacy of essential well being via a trusted herbal recipe—a recipe worth the lives of its makers.”
