The essential oil blend in our Four Thieves Bar Soap was inspired by the legend of four 15th-century French thieves who formulated and wore a special aromatic combination of clove, lemon, cinnamon, eucalyptus, rosemary, vinegar, and other botanicals which they believed provided protection from infection while they were stealing from the dead and dying victims of the Bubonic Plague.
French authorities recognized that there was such value in this mixture that upon the thieves’ capture, they received a more merciful punishment on condition that they divulge the ingredients in their secret formula.
While we can't claim that this soap bar will protect you from death, we can say that it will provide a deep cleaning, thick, rich lather, and an intriguing scent that is slightly spicy and slightly citrus.
