Ever hear of Thieves Oil?
First, let's go back in time for a brief history lesson ....
The Plague, also known as the Black Death, the Pestilence, Bubonic Plague, the Great Plague. It was one of the most devastating pandemics in human history resulting in the deaths of an estimated 50 to 200 million people. It was a multi-century pandemic labeled as 'The Greatest Catastrophe Ever'.
This plague is so ancient, even the Bible records the Bubonic Plague in I Samuyl 5:6 - "Yahweh's hand was heavy upon the people of Ashdod and its territory; He ravaged them and struck them with buboes in the groin."
Century after century, the Plague decimated the populations. Out of these pandemic outbreaks, a story emerged. It goes like this:
Four 15th Century French thieves went from house to house to rob the dead and dying victims of the plague. After the thieves were captured and tried for their acts of robbery, a judge offered leniency if they would share how they were able to be around those afflicted long and often enough to rob them but not be affected by the illness.
Yup! The thieves NEVER caught the plague themselves!
How did the thieves stay healthy?
People were stunned that these thieves were able to touch the bodies and remain healthy, as the plague was highly contagious. Word began to spread of this 'special concoction' that could be soaked into a towel and wrapped over the nose to prevent the “pestilence” from entering.
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 an essential oil recipe that when applied to their hands, ears, temples, feet & a mask over their mouths, kept them safe from infection.
From then on, the doctors who treated the Black Death victims put the herbal infusion on their hands, ears, temples & feet, and wore beak-like masks stuffed with cloths containing this special blend.

What were the herbs, spices, and essential oils used in the masks of the thieves and later, the physicians?
