How To Make Thieves Oil And Why You Should Be Using It Every Day

Have you heard of the four thieves legend, or of four thieves oil? Check it out - we'll tell you how to make your own!

In the story of the four thieves, these four thieves with a particular herbal remedy were able to take advantage of the chaos of the plague - surviving and thriving even as all their thieving mates died off.

It's said that their particular remedy protected them from the plague, such that they were inhuman to the disease's ravages.

As the legend goes, eventually the four were caught, and sentenced to death. "Spare our lives," they said, "and we'll give you our remedy."

We're here to teach you how to make the blend yourself.

Combine the following essential  oils in a small, glass vial:

  • 15 drops clove bud oil
  • 20 drops lavender oil
  • 15 drops lemon eucalyptus oil
  • 15 drops orange oil
  • 15 drops peppermint oil
  • 10 drops rosemary oil

Apply the blend topically, or via aromatherapy; do not ingest them.

Or, if you'd prefer an oral treatment, you can do that using the following recipe, with a vinegar base. 

You'll need:

  • 1 tsp organic lavender flowers
  • 1 tbsp organic sage leaf
  • ½ tsp organic peppercorns
  • 1 tsp organic rosemary leaf
  • ½ tsp organic thyme leaf
  • 16oz raw organic apple cider vinegar, unfiltered


  • Place the herbs in a pint jar and fill to the top with gently warmed (not boiling) apple cider vinegar.
  • Close with a plastic lid or place a piece of natural parchment paper under a metal lid to keep the vinegar from touching the metal.
  • Allow to extract for four weeks, gently shaking occasionally.
  • Strain the vinegar into a clean glass jar.
  • Store in a cool, dark area.

Regardless of which version you choose to make, it's uses are many:

  • As an insect repellent: put 1/4 cup into a spray bottle that you fill with water, then spray on skin and/or clothes to keep the “skeeters” away.
  • Disinfect surface areas: Diluted, spray on surfaces.
  • For infectious illnesses: Take one or two tablespoons with honey often throughout the day.
  • Topical treatments: dilute to use as a foot soak for toenail fungus or athlete’s foot, or to treat dandruff.
