The Bubonic Plague wrecked havoc in Europe, and had a big influence on William Shakespeare. This period of time is responsible for physicians wearing dark robes, wide brimmed hats and masks with long beaks. But why? These masks held dried herbs and essential oils which the physicians breathed in. Meanwhile, there were four thieves in France whom breathed in a similar concoction to steal from the rich who were infected with the plague. Fast forward to the current, Gary Young of the company Young Living created a blend of this oil used all those years ago. According to Secret of Thieves:
