Thieves Oil...criminals paying it forward

Anyone who thinks what’s going on is a new thing is not reading their history. Disease, pandemic, ignorance, panic and creative thinking are as old as time itself. The Mother Earth has found ways to buck us off repeatedly, with spotty success. I have lifted this little historical treatise directly from the Health Essentials website, it is well written, concise, and conveys the essence of the concept of Thieves Oil, and what it is possible for it to do for you today.

Thieves Oil — The History, The Blend & The Benefits.

The Historic Folklore of Thieves Oil

According to the long-told historic tale…. The use of thieves oil dates alllll the way back to the year 1413. The time of the infamous Bubonic Plague (aka The Black Death) that devastated a large portion of France. The Black Death spread like wild-fire amongst the citizens, and the doctors alike. It seemed impossible to be in the vicinity without contracting it, and at the time, the sickness really did mean ultimate demise.

During this time, however, four thieves were captured and charged for stealing from the sick and dying. The thieves never contracted the plague, despite the close contact with the Black-Death victims.

At this time, the crime these 4 men committed was punishable by burning 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 of this punishment.

The Thieves told the judge their secret: they were perfume & spice merchants who were unemployed due to the closure of the sea ports and the devastation of the plague. They had prepared an essential oil recipe that when applied to their hands, ears, temples, feet & a mask over their mouths, kept them safe from infection. The judge stayed true to his word. The men were not burned alive, but instead they were hanged for their crimes.

From then on, the doctors who treated the Black Death victims put the herbal infusion on their hands, ears, temples & feet, and wore beak-like masks stuffed with cloths containing this special blend. The beak is how doctors got the long-lasting nickname “quack”.

Thieves Oil Blend

Traditional Thieves Oil is a blend of 5 essential oils:


Syzygium aromaticum





Citrus limon





Cinnamomum verum





Eucalyptus globulus




Commercially produced Thieves oil varies in quality and price, and it pays to do your homework. It is possible to make it yourself of course, those early thieves certainly did. Herb wisdom is beautiful and powerful. Some people add different additional ingredients, but these are the basics.

I have a feeling this is just the beginning of a very interesting time for humans on this planet. Contradictory and sometimes terrifyingly wrong “medical” advice is coming from sources that ought to know better. what can it hurt to refer back to a time when this Thieves Oil practice actually worked, and in a time when plague killed virtually every being it came in contact with. This might not be the end of powerful communicable diseases, and we should arm ourselves with common sense, a good solid spiritual grounding and practice, and tools that might preserve our very lives.

For myself, I use it every day now. I irrigate and blow my nose first thing in the morning, wash my hands, and put a few drops of the oil all around my nose, upper lip, and up into my nostrils. Wash hands again. I also place about three drops into my container of tea to drink throughout the day. I also take the essential ingredient of Mucinex, Guaifenisen, every day. I may try the ears, temples, hands and feet approach with the oil as well. I have received many blessings of protection, and to strengthen my immunity from my spiritual teacher, master Zhi Gang Sha, and that gives me a great feeling of confidence. It’s incumbent on me to use all practical tools in the physical realm as well, to protect and heal myself so that I can be a light here on Mother Earth.

I hope this information is helpful to all of you! Love and Blessings to all.
