Four Thieves Vinegar Print
The Legend of Four Thieves Vinegar In the midst of the bubonic plague, four thieves secured their freedom from captivity by divulging a preventive homeopathic concoction rumored to ward off the disease. Herbs, garlic and vinegar were rendered into a solution that was to be applied to cotton wraps covering the body and face. Whether a clever con on a desperate people or a true prevention against the plague, the mixture was a ray of hope in a fearful time.
