Meet one of our favorite essential oil roll-ons:

Thievery Roll-On

What kind of name is that?… Well, let me tell you a little about thievery oil history (you know it's gonna be good with a name like "thievery"!

As folklore has it... Back in the day, we’re talking waaaaay back in the 15th Century Bubonic Plague day (that's circa 1413 in case were wondering), the story goes there was a group of European thieves (four thieves to be exact) who robbed plague victims & their graves, but they never got the plague. Pretty incredible when you consider that the Bubonic Plague was so highly contagious that it was also know as "the Black Death"... Yikes! Once the thieves were finally apprehended, they were given a choice to either give up their secrets to staying healthy, or perish. As you might imagine, they chose to give up the secrets! As it turns out, they ended up being spice merchants by trade. The trade business had come to a halt due to the closure of the sea ports thanks to the plague, so they turned to looting plague victims & their graves as a way of making money. They had deep herbal knowledge as a result of their trade and they revealed that they used a highly effective blend of oils & herbs to protect them. Their secret recipe included Cinnamon, Clove, Eucalyptus, Rosemary, & Lemon. Legend has it that they applied the oils to their hands, feet, temples, ears and even wore a mask covering their mouths that had the blend applied to it. The saving grace for the thieves, essential oil! 

So what does that have to do with us non-plagued folks worrying about people of today? Well, testing & studies have shown that the essential oils in this blend can be helpful in protecting your state of wellbeing. So you get well & stay well.

And what does that have to do with a roll-on, you ask... 

We know that this blend of oils is effective for getting well and staying well, so we decided to take this germ-fighting essential oil blend, mix it up with our favorite Squalane Oil & put a roller top on it for easy, anywhere & anytime application. This thievery roll-on is portable, convenient, and travel-friendly so you never have to be without it!
