The Thieves Story

The story goes that a group of spice traders and merchants, which were dubbed the “Thieves” lived in the 15th century and traded the likes of cinnamon and cloves from India across Europe. When the bubonic plague struck, international shipping and trade stopped. The spice traders needed a way to support themselves so they began covering themselves in protective spices.

In the early 1990s Gary Young studied essential oils and recreated a blend he had been researching based on the story of these spice traders. According to Gary there are 17 different versions of the story of the spice-trading thieves and each contains a different amounts of different oils. This intrigued Gary to research essential oils and make the perfect Thieves Oil blend for everyday use.

He researched the properties of all of the different oils in the multiple ingredients lists he found. His research lead to a proprietary oil blend which became Young Living Thieves Essential Oil.
