What’s so special about Thieves?

Young Living’s Thieves essential oil blend was created based on the historical account of four thieves in France. When captured, they were offered a lighter sentence in exchange for their secret recipe. Young Living’s proprietary Thieves oil blend includes clove, cinnamon bark, rosemary, lemon, and Eucalyptus radiata and has been specially blended to offer the same kind of defense.
