🌿 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

Everyone gets a deal on shipping with our "Bottomless Box" shipping cost of $8.00 (candles) and $6.00 (skin care). Whether you purchase 1 or 101 your cost doesn't change!

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

The shipping cost for one candle to return it to us averages $10, the initial shipping was $8 making it cost prohibitive for customers to return an item for a refund. We can't return it to inventory for safety reasons and can’t refund postage making it cost prohibitive for us.

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

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.

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, UPS and FedEx are predicting critical demand again this year (Oct 3-December 31), there is the possibility your packages will not arrive in time for your holiday.
We provide tracking numbers on your invoice as soon as we package your order and print your label. Your order will be picked up by the next business day after we package.
Please use your tracking number to check on your shipment, as we can’t possibly respond to all the tracking and shipping questions during the holidays.

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(may appear less full) 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.
