According to the long-told historic tale…. The use of thieves oil dates back to the year 1413. The time of the infamous Bubonic Plague that devastated a large portion of France. The Black Death spread like wild-fire amongst the citizens, and the doctors alike. It seemed impossible to be in the vicinity without contracting it, and at the time, the sickness really did mean ultimate demise.
During this time, however, four thieves were captured and charged for stealing from the dying. The thieves never contracted the plague, despite the close contact with the Black-Death victims.
The Thieves told the judge their secret: they were perfume & spice merchants who were unemployed due to the closure of the sea ports and the devastation of the plague. They had prepared a spice recipe that when applied to their hands, ears, temples, feet & a mask over their mouths, kept them safe from infection.
