Attar Bazaar Bandit's Blend - Essential Oil Blend
Bandit's Blend by Attar Bazaar comes from an old folkloric recipe dating back to the time of the bubonic plague in Europe. It consists of Eucalyptus Essential Oil, Lemon Essential Oil, Clove Essential Oil, Cinnamon Essential Oil, and Rosemary Essential Oil. As with all essential oils, never use them undiluted. Do not take internally. Keep away from children. If applying an essential oil to your skin always perform a small patch test to an insensitive part of the body.
About Bandit's Blend
Have you ever heard of this essential oil blend?
The folklore regarding this blend goes way back to the time of the bubonic plague in Europe around the mid-fourteenth century. As the story goes, there was a band of thieves who wandered about stealing valuables from those victims who died from the plague. It was quite a mystery as to why they didn’t catch the disease even though they touched the contaminated bodies.
After some time, they were finally captured and the king promised leniency of their punishment if they would disclose the secret of their protection.
Well, as it turned out, their secret was the use of an essential oil combination of Eucalyptus, Lemon, Clove, Cinnamon, and Rosemary.
As the story goes, the four or five thieves were perfume & spice merchants who were unemployed due to the devastation of the plague. They created this essential oil recipe and applied it to their hands, ears, faces, heads and feet and also soaked their face-masks in it.
Although there exists no evidence-based studies that prove Bandits Oil works, we think the fresh scent and calming aroma will be enjoyed by everyone.
