The Legend of Thieves Oil

The Origin of Thieves Oil

During the horrible Black Plague, trading came to a stand still and those in that industry struggled to survive. Out of desperation, the traders became thieves and looted those who had lost their lives to the plague. There was a major risk, bodies were still contagious but the thieves had a secret. The spices they traded had incredible medicinal properties which protected them from the plague.

The legend of the Thieves spread across the land. Somehow, these criminals found a magic solution to protect themselves from the plague. Word spread to the King and captured Thieves were taken before the King. He demanded they share their secrets or be put to death. The Thieves shared their “magical” blend, which is still in use today to help prevent the spread of certain germs and illnesses.
