Our four thieves oil comparison is by far our top selling essential oil blend. We are one of the nation's largest suppliers of essentials oils and that includes our popular "compare to version" of thieves oil. The story of how this blend was created comes from the legend of four thieves which was cited in a number of aromatherapy books. The basic premise of the story is that for centuries, the bubonic plague outbreaks decimated Asian and European cultures. From this period came popular legends of thieves who were captured and charged with stealing from the dead. When the thieves were finally tried, they were offered leniency if they would reveal how they avoided contracting the infection as they performed these horrible acts. They revealed a concoction of herbs and vinegar known as thieves oil that they rubbed on themselves before committing their crimes. As time went on, researchers have taken the essential oils from some of these herbs sited in the legend and applied them to popular essential oil blends. It is important to note this is a legend and should not be used to support theories that thieves oil can prevent the bubonic plague or any other disease or infection.

I have been using Thieves from another company YL for a very long time. I decided to try BA # 0008. I started with a small bottle to see if I liked it, and now I buy it in the 16oz. size. It is not only more affordable, but Love this blend even more. I use it in my diffuses when I am not feeling well or having problems with breathing, and I add it to some of my creams. I also put it on the bottom of my feet with coconut oil and then wear sox to bed. It has helped a lot.
I would never go back to the other brand as they really are charging a lot for the same product, and actually I like BA’s even better. : )
I tried the smaller size first, as i have used YL Thieves for years. I Loved this blend even better.
Now i order only the 16 oz. size as i use it for so many different creams and great when you are getting a cold.
I purchased a small bottle of this oil blend first, to try it out. I love Thieves by YL and once i tried this blend I would not go back to the original. Less money and just as nice or better.
The last time i bought the 16 oz. size as I use it for multiple purposes and LOVE, LOVE LOVE IT.
You will not be disappointed.
Believe the hype.
I make soaps, body butters and sugar scrubs. Thieves Blend is my second best seller after Lavender. People love it. Thanks BA!
This product is better than Young Living and the price makes it affordable for everyone...I do not know how these MLM companies can charge so much and get away with it!..I tell everyone about Bulk..they are by far the best products
Love this Thieves Blend. I ran it in my diffuser when I started getting sick. I knocked that illness out in about three days total. Meanwhile, a couple of my friends at work were sick for a few weeks. (I gave them your name). I also used a dab on a cotton swab to disinfect a mouth/gum irritation I had. It tastes terrible and if you don't dilute it, your mouth will feel like it's on fire (ask me how I know:) I rubbed a little coconut oil on my gums and it took away the burn immediately. It healed my gum infection by the next day. Seriously awesome stuff. It made my mouth feel very clean and fresh afterward. I have bought many oils from Bulk Apothecary and I have never had a complaint about the quality. They are amazing! I even asked for certifications with my first order, and they sent them to me with my order. After checking them out, I realized their oils are of very high quality, but less expensive than the higher priced alternatives.
I will say, I'm not as fond of the new labeling. It's nice, but I would like the name of the oil to be in larger lettering so I can see it without my glasses.
I used to buy Thieves oil from Young living, and this formula is just as effective I would say 100% as effective for one third less the price. I am so grateful to have found this product and order it regularly now from BULK Apothecary. I put a few drops on my toothbrush as well as in my water pic every night. I've had excellent results during my 6 months dental checkups.
I had bought 2 2oz bottles of this blend earlier and liked them. I gave one bottle to one of my kids around Christmas when we were visiting them and later was looking around the house and realized that I only had a half bottle left. I ordered another 2 oz. bottle and when it arrived, I received .05oz I called customer service and offered to send the bottle back so I could get what I ordered. Anthony (think that was his name), was wonderful and just sent out my order. They have wonderful pricing, products and are a stand up company.
