According to historical account from fifteenth century France, there was a band of thieves who anointed themselves with various aromatics such a cinnamon and clove, prior to robbing the homes of plague victims. The thieves never became ill and once captured were forced to relinquish their secret formula. Young Living's essential oil blend, Thieves®, is based on this ancient account.
An exclusive blend of pure clove, cinnamon bark, rosemary, lemon, and Eucalyptus radiata essential oils, Thieves has been university tested and proven to be 99.9 percent effective at killing airborne bacteria.* The natural antibacterial properties of Thieves inspired an entire line of natural home and body solutions including oral care, hand care, and household products.
