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 use to use Melaleuca's Armor at $20 a pop then I found this Blend #0008 by Bulk Apothecary and I'll never go back. It smells just as good and for half the price! I'm in love with Bulk Apothecary!
I used this in a pendant all last winter and never even got a sniffle. Just ordered more for family.
My family uses the Thieves blend and I really like it. It is so much more affordable than the "***terra" version, but seems identical. Thank you for making this affordable and available to all!
I never heard of this and thought it sounded like a terrible blend of fragrances. But I was intrigued and tried it. Now, I'm afraid of running out!
It's hard to describe: clean, mysterious, refreshing, a little spicy. I'm now using it for everything from a deodorizer in the cat box to laundry and dishes to cleaning my mirrors and counters. My bathroom mirrors and fixtures are absolutely gleaming with no streaks or film left behind.
I loved this blend-I made a batch of soap with it (30 bars) and it sold out quickly and I just made my 2nd batch. I'm very happy with it and will buy it again
I was a bit skeptical, having been disappointed in the past with other suppliers. But I am so happy with the quality of your oils I will be a loyal customer and tell my friends :)
I am so pleased with the quality and the price. I wish I would have discovered Bulk Apothecary years ago.
I love this oil blend. I find that when I am stressed it helps calm me. I feel it keeps me balanced and healthy.
I have used thieves-like-blend before.
Waiting to finish existing blend right now.
Will let you know results later.
