Ancient Thieves Story

Ancient Thieves Story

There are many stories but the recurring theme is that during the Dark Ages (Bubonic Plague) there was reported to be a family (or group) of thieves and body robbers that were able to steal from the plague victims but did not get sick. When apprehended, the King’s men told them they would have a “lighter” sentence if they revealed their secret of how they did not get sick and die from the plague. Lighter means not being drawn and quartered or burned at the stake.

Many stories report that the thieves were spice merchants and they were able to use a combination of herbal oils and vinegars to avoid contracting the plague or disease.

Believe what you may but there is actual proof of the antimicrobial properties in this combination is strong. The scent is pleasant and has overtones of cloves.
