Spark Naturals is pleased to offer this ancient ‘robbers’ or ‘thieves’ blend. Legend has it that in 15th century England, thieves working in the spice industry created their own blend of Clove, Cinnamon Bark, Lemon, Eucalyptus, and Rosemary to protect themselves from disease while robbing graves of plague victims. With its spicy and warm aroma, Shield Blend’s potential benefits include fighting infections and boosting the immune system. This potent blend is uncut, meaning it contains the essential oils only and is not diluted with a carrier oil.
About the Blend:
Lemon oil - can effectively reduce fevers and lower levels of free radical activities.
Eucalyptus oil - can fight all kinds of bacteria and viruses.
Rosemary oil - like eucalyptus, it contains the compound cineole. Cineole may help break up mucus and reduce inflammation.
