This amazing fresh cleaning spray is our latest addition of excellent products based on a popular “Thieves” essential oil blend. The basic composition is clove, cinnamon, rosemary, lemon and eucalyptus radiata. The secret is that the oils in the blend are highly anti-microbic. Most essential oils are, but these mixed together really pack a punch!
This powerful and proprietary blend of essential oils used in the spray has spun off from the legend of the “4 thieves” remedy originated around the time of Nicholas Culpepper, a noted botanist from the 16th century. The story apparently originated during the Bubonic Plague, Four thieves who had come together each with a highly disinfectant plant concoction, combined these plants to protect themselves against the plagues so they could rob the dead and dying of valuables. Rather morbid to say the least. Upon their capture, they gave up this recipe, and in return their lives were spared. It was thought that anything that could protect others from this horrible disease was worth knowing and putting to the public.
The original recipe was thought to be mixtures of garlic, eucalyptus, cinnamon, clove camphor, wintergreen plus many other variations boiled down into vinegar. While it does not really resemble the original concoction (they didn’t have access to many essential oils back then, especially eucalyptus) other companies have come up with their own patented formula and trademarked “Thieves” so no one can sell a blend under this name. How on earth someone can trademark a word in the dictionary is beyond my understanding, but to avoid any issues, we have appropriately named our blend “Robbers Remedy” Please read safety information and disclaimer at bottom of page before use.
