Our organic shield blend is a variation on the ubiquitous herbal recipes of the middle ages, and there are many modifications to be found of the historic cleansing herbal blend. The mythologized story tells of a group of four thieves were caught looting from the sick or deceased during the bubonic plague in Europe. They had not contracted the disease even after coming into close contact with bodies and authorities demanded to know how this was possible. As the tale goes, the thieves revealed they were unemployed spice merchants who used their wares to create an infusion to rub around their heads and hands to ward off disease.
This blend contains essential oils that are quite strong and irritating for skin such as cinnamon bark and clove. We recommend caution before using them topically even when properly diluted.
