🌿 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.

**SPRAY**

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. **May be in an amber glass bottle depending on supply at this time**

We also offer refills of 16 oz in amber glass to allow for extended shelf life for a seasons worth of protection. We do suggest storing this in the refrigerator for longer shelf life.

**Roller Ball**

Our original formula of oils added to 2 ml of Organic MCT oil for a carrier. Presented in an amber glass bottle to preserve potency with a stainless steel roller ball for smooth and consistent application.

Added to the bottle (to ensure a consistent blend when shaken) are Tigers eye stones. We chose this for 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

My wick is difficult to light, or won’t stay lit the first few times.

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 is 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.

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.

I really am enjoying this wonderful spray! It certainly is multipurpose. I have been using this as a quick deodorant, bug spray, and spraying it on my masks before I wear them. So far, so good and some people have commented to me how nice I smell lol. Thank you for making this product! I look forward to ordering more in the future.
