Young Living created a line of natural household products packed with the power and protection of Thieves® without using any dangerous chemicals. From toothpaste and mouthwash to cleaning products, hand soaps, and even throat lozenges, the Thieves® product line provides safe, natural alternatives for use in the home.
Young Living's Thieves essential oil blend was created based on the historical tale of four thieves in France who protected themselves from the black plague with cloves, rosemary, and other aromatics while robbing victims of the killer disease. When captured, they were offered a lighter sentence in exchange for their secret recipe. In modern days, these same herbs and essential oils have been found to be an effective barrier against topical and airborne microorganisms. Young Living's proprietary Thieves oil blend includes clove, cinnamon bark, rosemary, lemon, and Eucalyptus radiata and has been specially blended to offer the same kind of defense as it did in the fifteenth century. Thieves has been university tested and found to be highly effective in supporting the immune system and good health.*
During the 14th century, the plague spread across Europe. It was estimated to have killed a third of Europe's population while spreading to Asia and the Middle East. It was also known as the "Black Death" because one of the symptoms, acral necrosis, caused skin to blacken from subdermal hemorrhages. So terrorizing was the disease that it killed within a week, usually 3-4 days, wiping out entire families. “The pestilence was so contagious that those who touched the dead or the sick were immediately affected themselves and died".
During this time, there was a group of four thieves who were able to not only go near the dying and dead, but were able to touch them. The thieves robbed the bodies of the inflicted and did not become ill, themselves. They were caught in 1413 in Marseilles, France. When they were tried, the magistrate offered leniency if they exposed their secret to resisting the infection. The thieves disclosed a concoction of aromatic herbs, including cloves and rosemary, that they rubbed on their hands, ears, and temples in order to avoid contracting the plague.
This recipe was recreated in Young Living’s blend, Thieves®, which contains the oils of clove, lemon, cinnamon bark, eucalyptus, and rosemary. It is highly antimicrobial. When tested at Weber State University, it was found to have a 99.96% kill rate against airborne bacteria. It also carries a frequency of 150 Mhz.
