The Story of The Four Thieves and the Oil that Protected Them
The Bubonic Plague / Black Death originating in China quickly spread across Asia, Middle East and Europe throughout the mid 14th and early 15th Century .
In Europe the plague was so contagious people feared even going near the dead, no burials took place and bodies were lined up on the outskirts of towns.
The historical tale of the Four Thieves and the oil that protected them, occurred in what was once a thriving seaport city in France.
As the bodies were piled up along with their bedding and personnel effect, it was witnesses that 4 men were robbing the bodies of any possessions .
To rob the death was an act punishable by death.
When the men were brought before the magistrate, he was amazed that the robbers who not only repeatedly walked among the dead each night but used the dead’s bedding, clothing, personnel effects, and coin for themselves.
How could it be they were not Infected?
The four robbers were happy to answer how this was possible, if it would save their lives.
They explained that they were merchants of perfume and spice.
As they traveled the world they had seen how plant oils carried both medicinal and preventive qualities. During their travels they collected different plant oils, each with unique protective properties.
They eventually discovered that by combining a few oils, in a certain way, these oils could help protect them from and is how they could rob the bodies infected with the plague.
Aunt Lyn’s has taken the original thieves oil formula, increased the potency of three ingredients and added another powerful anti-viral and anti-bacterial, oil of oregano.

This was done to offset the strengthening of microbes; virus and bacteria, primarily caused in the last two centuries by the advent of man-made antibiotics, microbes to become resistant by mutating .
Aunt Lyn’s 4 Robbers’ Oil – can help you keep you and your household sanitized and disinfected, simply by adding a few drops to your cleaning products, moisturizers, hand soaps and of course diffusers.
Why It was Developed
When circumstances in China led to the unleashing of Covid19 into world, Aunt Lyn’s like many of you, struggled with getting basic household items .
Luckily, we had our Cold & Flu Away and Holistic Defense to use as sanitizers and disinfectants. However, this was costly to use in the scale that was needed to keep a household , office or facility disinfected and sanitized.
Additionally the supply chain for our organic, American grown essential oils and herbs we use to formulate our products were slowing down, as bottling facilities switched to providing for health care, hospitals , essential worker PPE needs.
Still wanted to help our clients as well as ourselves, by creating a concentrated cleaning disinfecting formula using readily available natural plant oils but realized producing a concentrated cleaner and having it bottled and shipped by the gallon would not be possible, under Coronavirus conditions.
That’s when I thought of my Four Robbers oil, my version of thieves!
I have always added my 4 Robbers to my hand soap, floor cleaner, laundry , shampoo, and was adding to the had begun adding it to Aunt Lyn’s Cold & Flu and Holistic Defense Quick Wipe both of which were being used as sanitizers.
A few drops into any cleaner or hand sanitizer will help protect and disinfect!
We decided to increase the potency and add an additional powerhouse ingredient, Oil of Oregano !
We tested by using and sharing 6 Robbers Oil throughout the height of the pandemic here in New York and New Jersey and think you will LOVE IT!
