This blend was created to be similar to the recipe for vinegar of the four thieves, some study done about a group of 15th century thieves who rubbed oils and aromatics on themselves to avoid contracting the plague while they robbed the bodies of the dead and dying. It is assumed they also inhaled these oils by smudging the herbs. When authorities caught and arrested these guys, the thieves disclosed the formula of herbs, spices, and oils they used to protect themselves in exchange for a more lenient sentence. Documentation of this can be found in the Dictionary of Medical Science, dated 1873, found in the Library of Congress, written by R. Dunglison, M.D.; among other sources.

Cinnamon essential oil is the oil of wealth from the Orient and part of the anointing oil formula the Lord gave Moses (Exodus 30:22-27). Cinnamon oil was regarded by the emperors of China and India to have great value; the emperors' wealth was measured by the amount of oil they possessed. Traditionally, it was thought to attract wealth and abundance. Physically, cinnamon bark oil has many attributes. It is anti-infectious, antibacterial, anti-parasitic, antiviral, and anti-fungal.
