Directions/Comments

Combine all of the oils in an essential oil dropper bottle. Add 5 drops of the mix to your diffuser.

According to legend, this blend is based on a combination of aromatic herbs used by four 15th century French thieves to protect themselves from the plague while they were robbing the dead and dying. Whatever it's origin, this traditional recipe has become one of the most well known essential oil blends in the world.
