If you research Four Thieves a bit you will find a plethora of information. In summary, its name was inspired by the legend of four French thieves in the 15th century who wore a special blend of rosemary, clove and other botanicals while they robbed the dead and dying. In simple terms Thieves essential oil helps to create a highly oxygenated environment that is unfriendly to bacteria, viruses, fungi and other nasty things.
Aromatherapy is administered by inhalation and topically. When inhaled, very simply, the molecules interact with the surface of your nasal cavity. Tiny olfactory nerves that are located in the room of the inner nose transmit these aromas to the part of the brain called the limbic system. The limbic system interacts to control heart rate, blood pressure, breathing, memory, stress level and hormone balance. This is why essential oils have such a powerful effect on our moods and general state of mind. When applied externally, the essential oils get absorbed into your skin and you get a more systemic approach.
