    Missy Wombat's Note:

    A basic version of his antiseptic brew so named because the four thieves used to apply this to themselves to protect themselves from the Bubonic Plague while plundering those who had died from it.

      Piper Lee, you can use this as a salad dressing, have a spoon full in the morning (as you would medicine), use it for antiseptic, or in the bath for general protection.

      It works really well as a salad dressing, I agree. You can also spray down countertops (handy, for those who can't use commercial cleaners) and repel bugs without smelling like bug spray, though you do smell like a vinagarette. Also, everything in it is either antiviral, antifungal, antiparasitic, or antibiotic. The recipe that I have also uses lemon balm, which has all of the above qualities.

      I think this recipe is very interesting and all, but I'm at a loss as to what to do with it once it's made. Can I use it to sterilize things? Do I use it as a hand-wash/rinse when I'm in town and have to touch doors and grocery carts, instead of Purell or some other hand-sanitizer? Please, if anyone knows what this recipe is meant for, besides protecting one's self from the Plague, LOL, I'd love to know how to use it. Thanks!
