How Did Purify™/Thieves Get Its Name?
As legend would have it, during the 15th-century, the black plague was killing citizens of all rank and file in England. The field of medicine stood helpless – they had no cure and no prevention. All people could do was stay as far away from plague victims as they could.
However, a band of thieves ran rampant, handling and robbing plague victims and their graves of all their jewelry and valuables never caught the highly contagious disease themselves. How did they do it? What protected them?
Inevitably, the thieves were caught and instead of facing harsh sentences for their crimes, they revealed the secret to the judge.
The thieves were spice traders and perfumers who often traveled the Silk Road. Their knowledge of essential oils and spices taught them the exact oils to apply onto their bodies to protect themselves from the plague.
