Thieves Household Cleaner

Thieves essential oil blend was inspired by the legend of four 15th-century French thieves, who formulated a special aromatic blend composed of clove, rosemary, and other botanicals to use while robbing the dead and dying. Thieves blend combines pure Clove, Cinnamon Bark, Rosemary, Lemon, and Eucalyptus essential oils and has been university tested for its cleansing properties.
