Sickness Swindler is a blend of 100% pure essential oils of Clove Bud, Lemon, Rosemary, Cinnamon Bark, and Eucalyptus. This blend is actually an ancient recipe; its roots go all the way back to the Bubonic Plague that ravaged Europe and Asia in the 15th century. Legend has it that a group of four thieves plundered the dead who had succumbed to the plague. But the thieves miraculously never contracted the highly infectious disease! Eventually, they were caught and charged, but the magistrate offered them a deal. They could trade their secret for avoiding the plague for a reduced sentence. They took the deal and told the magistrate their specific herbal blend that protected them.
This recipe has been passed on for centuries! It cannot be verified if the story of the four thieves is true, but we do know that a Weber State University study found that the “thieves” essential oil blend has a 99.96% success rate at killing airborne bacteria! This powerful combination of essential oils is antiseptic, antiviral, antibacterial and antimicrobial!
This cream has a base of coconut oil and beeswax. This cream also contains clove bud essential oil, lemon (Sicily) essential oil, cinnamon bark essential oil, eucalyptus globulus 80/85, and rosemary essential oil.
