The Legend of Thieves Oil
It is believed in 1413, when the bubonic plague was running rampant in France, a group of spice merchants were unemployed due to the closure of France’s seaports. In order to make money, they dug up graves and robbed dead plague victims of their jewelry and precious items. 

Soon discovered, they were arrested, but the judge offered them leniency for their terrible crimes if they would share the secret which enabled them to expose themselves to the plague without contracting it. 

They explained preparing a special herbal oil blend which they applied to their hands, ears, feet, masks, and temples and this protected them from infection. As promised, the judge did not burn the men alive – he hanged them instead.

Soon after, plague doctors began to wear beak-like masks stuffed with hankerchiefs soaked in the merchants’ blend to protect them from the disease (the beak is how doctors got the long-lasting nickname “quack”). The merchants’ original blend, containing vinegar and garlic, was known primarily as Vinaigre de Marseille.
