Based on a 15th Century recipe found in the Royal English Archives, this oil blend protected a band of plundering thieves from the Black Death, even as they looted the highly-contagious bodies of the dead victims. During the course of their activity, four of the thieves were caught by the King’s men. The thieves traded this secret recipe in exchange for leniency.
