The Story of the Four Thieves, who used essential oils to survive the plague.
The use of Thieves oil dates all the way back to the year 1593. The time of the infamous Bubonic (The Black Death) Plague, it ran rampant through Europe and Asia. Spreading like wild-fire among the citizens and physicians alike. Seeming impossible to be in the vicinity without contracting the Plague. At the time, the sickness really did mean Black Death!
However, these four thieves, (who notoriously robbed the infected dead bodies of all their possessions) miraculously never contracted the highly infectious plague. They were soon captured and charged for stealing from the sick and the dead.
The crime these four men committed was punishable by being burnt alive. The judge was so intrigued by how these men had stayed immune to this terrible disease, that he told them if they shared their secret he would spare them this punishment. Taking the deal, they told stories of their herbal knowledge and their powerful medicinal properties when combined in certain ways.
The Thieves told the judge their secret. They were perfume and spice merchants. Due to the plague they were left unemployed (due to the closure of the seaports). Around this time; all physicians wore: long black robes, wide-brimmed hats, and masks that appeared to have a beak. The reason for the masks was said to have contained a combination of herbs, spices, and essential oils. The four thieves would breathe these combined mixtures to keep them self safe from the plague.
It was also said; their hands, ears, face, masks and robes were doused in a similar fragrant concoction. (Current research continues to build upon this theory) to keep them safe from getting infected.
