The Medieval Blend (formally Four Thieves) which is a recipe that comes from a medieval legend told about grave robbers who concocted a potion to protect them from being infected with the plague, has numerous health benefits. The mixture of Clove Bud, Lemon, Cinnamon Bark, Eucalyptus and Rosemary essential oils have antiseptic, antiviral, antibacterial and anti-infectious properties. This blend may be used either to protect you from viral or bacterial infections, or to decrease the severity of symptoms and expedite healing, should you become ill. It can be rolled on the hands as an antiseptic, rolled on the chest or bottoms of the feet to protect against or reduce the symptoms of respiratory illnesses. We have combined these oils with Fractionated Coconut Oil and recommend that you keep it away from your eyes. We also offer this blend in an aromatherapy inhaler, for protection against airborne bacteria.
