I will use a lot of words to describe this particular product line, but in case you do not want to read all of the words, I can sum it all up for you...this is the most effective all natural, organic product that will KILL ALL Fungus, Bacteria (germs) and Viruses, on contact and airborne!
It began with a legend of four thieves in France, circa 14th century, during the bubonic plague. As with any good legend, there are several versions. The "Four Thieves" Formula, also called Marseilles Vinegar, Marseilles Remedy, Prophylactic Vinegar, Vinegar of the Four Thieves, camphorated acetic acid, Vinaigre des Quatre Voleurs, and Acetum Quator Furum is a concoction of vinegar, from red or white wine, infused with herbs, spices and/or garlic that was believed to protect users from the bubonic plague. The recipe for this vinegar has almost as many variations as its legend. The thieves were caught robbing the dying and already dead and were sentenced to death by burning at the stake, but then the king granted immunity to life in prison, if they would reveal how they had never "caught" the black death!!!
This peaked my interest and I began a two year research of the various ingredients of the thieves oil and many other all natural herbal ingredients that would kill viruses, bacteria and fungus.
Many facts came forward, like; essential oils will penetrate the cell wall of a virus, fungus or germ, when synthetic drugs can not! or "Smart Germs" (MRSA - Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus) can not mutate or change to become resistant to the killing power of essential oils!
I read many research papers and studied results from laboratory "controlled" experiments that revealed amazing positive facts on the killing power of certain specific essential oils and herbals, that worked on all types of fungus, bacteria and viruses, so I began to create a formula that contained the most powerful of these ingredients. Each ingredient contributes various strengths to the formula and performs different jobs desired, whether attacking viruses, bacteria or fungi.
