The Story Behind Four Thieves:
Picture it, Europe 1348, a Perfumer, a Spice Trader and 2 Merchants by day, grave robbers by night. These four dastardly Thieves make their fortune robbing the bodies of those infected with the Black Plague bacteria without contracting the contagious illness by using a secret formula to protect themselves while robing and pillaging the dying and dead.
These Four Thieves had a pretty good track record of stealing riches until the King of France found out and issued a proclamation to have them captured. The Thieves were tried for their acts of looting and pilfering.
At the trial the magistrates were so anxious to get their hands on this magical formula they offered a deal; burning at the stake, being hung by the neck or disclosing their secret weapon in exchange for immunity. Agreeing to a bargain the Thieves confessed they’d rubbed themselves with a concoction of aromatic herbs, spices and essential oils thereby imparting their knowledge of the powerfully combined medicinal properties of their recipe.
Many people believe Four Thieves had only 4 ingredients, each spice and/or essential oil a representation of a thief. However that theory is unfounded. After extensive examination of historical data it’s crucial to utilize the plants of medicinal curatives going as far back as ancient biblical times, therefore harnessing the potential of both nature and science and not limiting Four Thieves to merely 4 familiar and easily attainable elements.
What Zen a Four Thieves’ Antiviral Salve is chocked full of essential oils, a broad spectrum of antiseptic, antibacterial, antimicrobial and anti-infectious herbs and spices. Studies have proven the effectiveness of this proprietary blend for its cleansing abilities which are remarkably effective in supporting the immune system. What Zen a Four Thieves’ Antiviral Salve essentially abolishes common airborne bacteria, viruses and fungus, while stimulating the circulatory and respiratory system, radically reducing the incidence of flu, colds, bronchitis, pneumonia and sore throats.
Keep some of this exceptional neutralizing salve on hand throughout the cold and flu season … It makes a great replacement for traditional hand sanitizers AND it doesn’t contain any harmful chemicals or drying agents commercial sanitizers incorporate, and as an extra added bonus it moisturizes your hands while it protects them!
SUGGESTED USE: Before going out in public, scoop a split pea sized portion with the back of your fingertip or a cotton swab, rub into your hands and just a wisp under the nostril area to help clear sinuses’ and keep those nasty germs away. You’ll feel a penetrating warmth and slightly tingling sensation as it’s absorbed. Remember only a tiny amount is needed and it’s a great way to overcome germs that snuck in when you weren’t expecting them, so at the first sign of a cold or flu apply the 4 Thieves Salve onto hands, soles of feet and chest.
A time saving topical application packed in a pocket size amber jar with a smooth twist on black cap. What Zen a 4 Thieves is an ideal travel companion perfectly suited to meet flight regulations while fitting comfortably into your luggage, purse, backpack or pocket.

A little bit of Black Death History:
The Bubonic Plague or as many call it Black Death, killed somewhere in the neighborhood of 1½ million people between 1348 and1350 caused by Oriental Rat Fleas carried on the backs of Black Rats arriving on the Silk Road of China in October 1347.
When the 12 Genoese trading ships docked at the Sicilian port of Messina after a long journey through the Black Sea, people gathered on the docks waiting to greet the ships were met with a horrifying surprise: Most of the sailors aboard were dead, and those still alive were gravely ill, overcome with fever, unable to keep food down and delirious from pain. Strangest of all, they were covered in mysterious black boils that oozed blood and pus which gave their illness its name: “Black Death.” The Sicilian authorities hastily ordered the fleet of “death ships” out of the harbor, but it was too late:
In towns and cities people lived in very close proximity, streets littered with filth gave flea infested rats the perfect environment to breed and increase in number. The town’s people knew nothing about contagious diseases so the disposal of bodies was very crude which helped to spread the disease and those who handled the bodies did not protect themselves therefore fleas bit into them infusing them with the bacterial disease. .
