Thieves® Essential Oil Blend was created based on history of a group of thieves in the 1600's who were stealing from the dead and dying victims of the plague. They were captured and offered leniency if they revealed how they resisted the infection. They told about how they used a combination of cloves, rosemary, and other perfumes (oils) that they would apply to themselves and breathe in as they were amongst the victims of the plague.
