A long time ago (in the year 1413, to be exact), four thieves were accused of robbing people who were dead or dying from the bubonic plague in Europe. When put on trial, they were asked how they were able to be near infected people without contracting the deadly plague. Their answer was simple: a blend of herbs that they rubbed on their hands, ears and temples.
Since then, thieves oil has often been used to fight against a variety of airborne diseases. Today, the essential oil is a combination of several ingredients, including the original rosemary and cloves used by the thieves during the bubonic plague. The concoction also contains cinnamon, lemon and eucalyptus. Together the ingredients are said to create a very powerful essential oil that is used many ways and in many environments.
