    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 hand cleanser and 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

     Solution: Make sure the wick is trimmed to be no longer than 1/4” – 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

    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.

    Repeat purchase of The Four Thieves. I have been using this as a natural deodorant and it works amazingly for that purpose. Will be back for more! Thank you so much for the amazing products and extra touches, every time I receive a package from Teresa and Gabe it makes me feel like I am receiving a special gift.


    This is good stuff and smells like the historic recipe. Thank you!


    Just as described. Works well for mosquitoes. Thank you.


    I have been reducing my plastic waste over the last couple of years and have been making my own deodorant. I ran out and, out of desperation, spritzed some of my Four Thieves spray on my pits before running out the door. I didn’t take notice until I got home that evening that it worked better than my deodorant...even better than the natural store bought deodorants! Is their anything this spray can’t do? 😂
