    Our special blend of The Four Thieves spray is is perfect for all seasons!

    Spring/Summer- Mosquitos and biting/stinging pests as well as a VERY effective natural spray deodorant.

    Fall/Winter- Helps reduce the spread of bugs, great on the go hand cleanser as well as deodorant.

    🌿 The legend of The Four Thieves tells of four thieves who robbed the homes of the dead during the bubonic plague. One of the thieves was an herbalist who made a tincture from Apple cider vinegar and herbs which they applied to themselves and wore on scarves tied over their faces. The tincture was credited for preventing the thieves from contracting the plague and keeping them healthy during their deeds.
    One account of the story says they were eventually brought to trial and given their freedom in return for the potion, another is they were forced to bury the bodies of the dead and released after they survived as they were believed to be Witches.

    Regardless of the ending, the formula survives and has been used ever since as a powerful antiseptic, deodorant and insect repellant.

    Our little magical green bottles are the tincture of lore, a magical infusion of organic apple cider vinegar with the Mother, essential oil of Rosemary, Clove, Mint, Lavender and Sage and a couple other essential oils.

    The strong herbs cover the scent of the vinegar from humans while allowing the powerful astringent to work its magic.

    Our potion starts with aloe Vera juice, we then add Organic Apple Cider Vinegar with the Mother and infuse with essential oil of Mint, Lavender, Sage, Clove, Rosemary and our secret EO.

    We present it in a green glass 2 ounce bottle to prevent loss of potency.

    Added to the bottle, to ensure a consistent blend when shaken, areTigers eye stones for added protection and because we love stones and crystals.

    Our potions contain NO additives, NO alcohol or preservatives and as such must be shaken to blend the oils prior to spraying.

    Be sure to remove the stones when the potion is gone and place with your other stones and crystals.

    The bottle can be reused for your own personal blend and the stones may be left in if desired.

    I recommend cleaning the bottle and stones well and filling with spring water and returning the stones for a great on the go facial spritz to refresh and protect.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    How do I trim and light my wood wick?

    Check out our blog for care and burning tips
    www.teresalynns.com/blog

    If lighting seems difficult, the wick is too far above the surface of the wax when the candle is initially lit. Always light at the wax level, not the top of the wick.

     Solution: Make sure the wick is trimmed to be no longer than 1/8” – 3/16” / 6.4mm – 4.8mm above the wax. This seems counterintuitive, as we think a longer wick will make a larger flame, but it will not. The longer the wick, the harder it is for the wax to flow up to the top.
    (The Wooden Wick patented wood wick company).

    Wholesale availability

    We do not offer wholesale. Our candles are priced at wholesale price points to allow our customers the simple luxury of our candles for everyday use.

    Shipping costs

    We combine shipping upon written request when placed and requested within one hour of each order.

    Are Soy Candles Safe?

    Now let’s talk about wax. Unless you are eating your candles (which you shouldn’t be) you don’t need to worry about them being produced with “Organic Soy wax”. This is good because organic soy wax doesn’t exist.

    The process of converting the oil into a wax itself renders the wax ineligible for organic certification. Even if a manufacture used the 5-9% of soybeans grown in the USA that are Organic Bean, the process itself makes them not organic.
    Should you worry about this? The simple answer is no, soy wax is safe.

    You should worry about a company that claims their soy candles are organic.
    We use wax made with only Midwest Grown Soybeans.

    We use only phthalate free fragrance oils and essential oil blends in our products.

    Return policy

    We do not accept returns or exchanges to ensure each customers order is fresh and new to them.

    We always suggest starting with the smallest size offered on new products to ensure you love it before adding the larger size to your collection.

    We always strive to ensure the satisfaction of our beloved customers. If you have received a damaged item we will help you file your claim with USPS, if you received the incorrect item we will replace it as soon as possible. If you have an issue, please contact us.

    What do I do if my item is received damaged or is lost in transit?

    We are happy to assist you with filing a claim with USPS if you received a damaged item or your package is lost.


    FILING CLAIMS FOR DAMAGES/LOSS is now the responsibility of the customer as USPS has changed their policies and often requires the recipient to present the damaged package along with proof of payment from your financial institute (all things we do not have).

    Note: You must create an account with the USPS if you don’t already have one.

    ***When filing a claim with USPS, the damaged article, container, packaging, and any other items received must be presented to the Postal Service for inspection along with proof of payment from your financial institution. Be certain to safely save the entire box, label and all the contents.**

    Holiday Shipping

    USPS is experiencing critical demand this year and there is the possibility your packages will not arrive in time for your holiday. Etsy provides tracking numbers in your invoice as soon as we print your label and package your order. Please use this to check on your shipment as we can’t possibly respond to all the tracking and shipping questions at this time.

    Return to Sender packages

    Packages received back to us as RTS (Return to Sender) may be resent at your request by purchasing a postage listing customized for your parcel.
    We are not responsible for invalid addresses, forwarded mail or refused parcels and will not refund or pay return shipping.
    We will contact you via messages with a link to the shipping listing which will be active for 30 days.

    Summer Lotion Shipping

    Please see our heat advisory at the beginning of each listing as high temps (80 degrees +) can cause melting, settling and thinning of lotions. Please only purchase if this is a risk you are willing to take. We do have express shipping offered to help prevent heat damage in shipping.

    This works wonderfully as a natural deodorant, have purchased several times and will be a repeat customer for life! There was a slight mixup with my order but Teresa responded immediately, was super helpful and cleared everything up! Teresa and Gabe's products and service can't be beat!



    Perfect size spray on bottle of natural mosquito repellent. Just what I needed for travel and home. Lovely hand written note. Great packaging with lots of samples. Thank you.



    I'm not sure ACV always works but it did smell pretty good!
