A brief history lesson about the infamous Bubonic Plague (AKA The Black Death) that devastated a large portion of France in 1413 AD. The Black Death spread like wildfire amongst citizens and doctors alike. It seemed impossible to be in the vicinity without contracting it, and at the time, falling ill did mean you were likely to meet your ultimate demise.
According to lore, four thieves were caught and charged with stealing from the sick and dying. The judge was so intrigued by how these men had stayed immune to this terrible disease, that he told them if they shared their secret he would spare them of the intended punishment of being burned alive.
The four thieves told the judge their secret; they were perfume & spice merchants and had prepared an essential oil recipe that had kept them safe. The concoction was applied to their bodies and the thieves stuffed a beak shaped mask with cloths doused in the oils. The judge stayed true to his word and the men were not burned alive, but instead they were hanged for their crimes.
Notes have hints of sweet orange, clove bud, rose, rosemary, cinnamon, and vetiver, it will have you transported back to a time where it was normal to call your doctor a quack in such a heavenly way!
