SPICE DEFENSE ~ NEW FORMULA! The oils in this formula are notorious for being the ones that protected the Spice Traders who were thieves stealing from the dead during the time of the Bubonic Plague! When questioned by the king as to how they did not die from the plague while robbing the sick and dead, they answered it was the oils and spices of their trade! Today, science has tested and proven the strong antibiotic effects of Oregano. Cinnamon, an ingredient in the Holy Anointing Oil in Scripture (Exodus 30) has long been known to ward off evil. Think of the plague and viruses as evil — hmmmm. Be sure to read the beneficial descriptions of each SHeMeN/oil contained in this blend and how they have been historically and traditionally used.

Contains: Clove Bud, Cinnamon Bark, Lemon, Eucalyptus radiata, Myrrh, Thyme, Orange, Oregano, Nutmeg, Rosemary, and Ginger Root.
This now contains Myrrh and the Citronella has been omitted which leaves it with a warm spicey citrusy aroma. Citronella can cause problems for some people and, in some aromatherapy circles, it is considered to have too many potential side affects for safety purposes. Personally, I'm one of those who gets extreme headaches from Citronella so I have removed it from the blend. If you woud like Citronella in it, just purchase it separately and add it.
*Neat: Pure plant oil with NO carrier base added.
Caution: There are some hot oils in this synergy so use with caution and always dilute.
