Thieves Oil has a peculiar and macabre history. Originally used by grave robbers in the early 1400's, they would pack this special blend of potent herbs into a mask to ward off bad luck, and to protect against the overwhelming scent of death while going about their ghastly business.
Our Thieves Oil is a blend of Lemon, Eucalyptus, Cinnamon, Clove, Rosemary, and Sage. With all those potent herbs, it is easy to imagine they masked the scent of death fairly well.
Hats off, erm...masks off to those clever Thieves!
Available in glass bottles in a range of volumes from 1/3 oz to 1 oz, with optional eyedropper or rollerball caps in select sizes.
Our oils can be used in a variety of ways. Visit our Fragrance Oil Ideas page for plenty of tips and tricks!
Fragrance Oils vs Essential Oils
Silk Road Traders offers Fragrance Oils (also called Perfume Oils), which are synthetically made and designed for topical use only. Why synthetic fragrance oils? ESSENTIAL OILS ARE HARD ON THE ENVIRONMENT! The volume of plant matter needed to sustain the booming essential oil industry in the Western World is wreaking havoc on delicate exotic ecosystems around the world. Additionally, since we at Silk Road Traders are perfumers and not aromatherapists, homeopaths, or healers, our goal is to help you smell good with as minimal an impact on the environment as possible.
