Clove, cinnamon leaf, rosemary, eucalyptus, and citrusy, earthy litsea cubeba.

In a story that's likely apocryphal, medieval thieves wanting to protect themselves from getting sick while robbing plague victims mixed up a concoction of the most antiseptic, antibacterial substances they could get their hands on: clove, lemon, cinnamon, rosemary, and eucalyptus. We don't make any claims for the disease-fighting qualities of the mixture, but it smells wonderful, especially with complex, citrusy litsea cubeba subbed in for the lemon.
