The Dark Ages was the time of the black plague. The plague killed millions of people during this time. No one wanted to go near the dead to remove the bodies for fear of catching it themselves. A band of thieves were caught robbing the dead bodies of jewelry and other personal effects. When they were caught and the king had them arrested, he demanded to know why they did not get sick and catch the plague from touching the plague victims or they would be put to death.

This amazing blend of essential oils literally repelled the plague.

The mixture can be used straight and rubbed on the bottom of your feet. If you have sensitive skin they can be mixed with a base oil such as grape seed oil, olive oil, almond oil etc.
