The Bandits’ Blend (Band of Thieves Essential Oil Blend)

While essential oils such as Clove Bud, Lemon, Cinnamon Bark, Eucalyptus and Rosemary all have incredible benefits and healing properties individually, as a synergy blend they are even more powerful. Research at Weber State University has found when these essential oils are diffused they have a 99% kill rate against airborne bacteria. Other case studies concluded similar results demonstrating this combination of essential oils is proven to eradicate viruses and bacteria related sicknesses within minutes.

As the name ‘Bandits’ Blend’ indicates, this is what many believe to be a closest formula to the essential oils likely used by the band of thieves in protecting themselves from the Bubonic Plague. Heralded as the hero that stopped England from the ravage of the Bubonic Plague, King James commuted their death sentence in exchange for the secret of their survival.  This information is recorded in the Royal English Archive.

Three recipes have been provided for making your own Bandits’ blend. The first recipe is in an undiluted, concentrated form without a carrier oil.  Please use caution as all essential oils should be diluted using a carrier oil or alcohol before applying to the skin.
