The Four Thieves blend
Posie Botanical has created a modern day version of a long told historic tale of 4 spice merchants that became unemployed back in the early 1400s due to the Bubonic Plague (Black Death) that spread rampantly in Europe, devastating most every person that came in contact with it.
During this time, the four thieves were captured and charged for stealing from the sick and dying. The judge was very curious as to why not one single thief had contracted the disease. The Thieves told the judge their secret, that they were perfume & spice merchants who were unemployed due to the closure of the sea ports and the devastation of the plague. They had created and essential oil recipe from their wares that they had, that when applied to their hands, ears, temples, feet & a mask over their mouths, kept them safe from the plague.
From that moment on Doctors did exactly, that. Their masks that were quite “Beak like” had this blend underneath protecting them from the Bubonic Plague.
FUN FACT: This mask was where the nickname “Quack”originated. :-)
Benefits & Uses
This versatile blend can be used for more than just the Bubonic Plague due to its now well-known anti-bacterial, anti-fungal & anti-viral properties!

This relaxing mist is ideal for the inside or outside of your mask, not to mention any space or place you find germs. The beautiful citrus like aroma of this spray will beat bacteria until the fresh smell of Spring takes over. Some find it calming. We think that is a good reason to use it. Particularly during these times.
Bye Bye germs. You stink!

3)Thieves Blend Inhaler
I live by inhalers. Since beginning my journey towards my Certification I have always made myself inhalers. They are not only portable, they are effective!
The Thieves Blend inhaler is extremely handy to carry with you in any situation. Two long inhales on each nostril and congestion dissipates. The essential oils that are in the Thieves Blend are highly effective as stated previously to be anti bacterial and anti viral. Colds have not been able to hang out in my upper respiratory tract over the last few years…I am pretty sure I know why!
We make all kinds of inhalers for nausea, stress, sleepless nights and so on. Never leave home without one!
