Four Thieves is a historic germ-fighting folk recipe that possibly originated from the early 1400’s. The story says that during the Bubonic Plague, a group of thieves was stealing money from dead bodies without becoming sick themselves. When they were finally caught, in exchange for their life, they were asked to share their secret of how they were able to survive for so long without getting sick. They then described their secret recipe of herbs that they applied to their hands, ears, temples, feet, and under their nose beneath their mask.
It is said that from then on, doctors who treated the Black Death used this herbal infusion in a similar manner to the thieves. Regardless of whether this entire story is true or not, the herbs included in Four Thieves recipes are well known for their antimicrobial actions and these blends are still beloved today.
