Thick as Thieves Handmade Salve contains a classic blend of Clove, Lemon, Cinnamon, Eucalyptus and Rosemary essential oils.
This classic blend is derived from the 17th century four thieves saga.
The story has it that during the height of the bubonic plague in the France, four men were notoriously robbing the infected dead or nearly dead of their possessions without themselves becoming sick. The men were apprehended and traded their secret for a reduced sentence. While there is no official record for the herbal blend they used, there is a general agreed upon recipe which is used to this day. Please remember this is just a historic tale, it is not an indication that this product will cure the bubonic plague or any other illness or condition.
