The Legend dates back to the Bubonic Plague (aka Black Plague/Death 1400-1800). This folklore tale is about four men that were perfume and spice merchants from Marseilles, France. During the Black Plague, seaports throughout Europe were closed, chaos, unemployment, and crime were rampant. The four merchants had restored to looting homes of people that had died from the Plague. Wheather mythic or legend, four thieves prepared an essential oil concoction that kept them from contracting the disease. When they were caught, however, the King give them an ultimatum, either tell us your secret or be burned alive (no loopholes there). It was not a hard choice to make, the four thieves gave up their secret. To this day, Four Thieves essential oil is the symbol of the end of the Bubonic Plague.
So, what is a blend of oils? A blend of essential oils is a group of oils that are blended to make one essential oil, like the Thieves essential oil of the Bubonic Plague. When Essential oils are blended, they become a team, such as Thieves oil. The blend that Soaps Creams & Things make, has five essential oils blended together. That makes our blend five times stronger, five times antibacterial, five times relaxed, five times less nasal and sinus congestion, and five times more immune system properties. In the case of the Thieves oil; Clove Bud, Lemon, Cinnamon, Eucalyptus, and Rosemary oils are used. Soaps Creams & Things, uses organic essential oils, making them even more potent. Why is a blend more potent? Simply put, when essential oils interact with one another, they can bring out superseding effects that cannot be reduced to any individual essential oil. In aromatherapy, this phenomenon is known as 'synergy'.
Essential oil blending brings the Synergy of, gentle, natural, melodious, raucous, strong, smooth, rich, distinct, deep, thick, mellow, and shrill. Amazingly enough, this is the description of words that is used to describe music. Thieves essential oil, produce peace, harmony, happiness, excitement, and balance, a ‘Synergy’ that makes a harmonic sound that only the brain can hear.
