Oils of the Bible
The Twelve Oils of Ancient Scripture Collection is a collection of spiritual essential oils from the Bible which was the first kit I purchased because I was attracted to the vibration of the oils in this collection. This collection of oils from the bible will help you during these transformative times we are currently experiencing on our planet with grace and ease. They have powerful effects when used during meditation, for clearing issues and for addressing spiritual issues. I have quite a lot of information on how to use these oils on my services web site and I am available for spiritual anointing sessions.
Twelve Oils of Ancient Scripture™ Essential Oil Collection
This oil collection contains the twelve most significant oils found in the Bible. Young Living's wish in bringing them to you is that you will savor and enjoy the beautiful fragrances and intriguing histories of these precious pure essential oils. Gary Young draws on his travels to biblical lands and explains the twelve oils on an audio CD, also included in this collection.
- Aloes/Sandalwood — It is believed that aloes of the Bible may have been fragrant sandalwood, a spice accessible to the residents of ancient Palestine. "And there came also Nicodemus, which at the first came to Jesus by night, and brought a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about an hundred pound weight." (John 19:39)
- Cassia — this is similar to Cinnamon — Cassia was a key ingredient in the temple incense. "All thy garments smell of myrrh, and aloes, and cassia, out of the ivory palaces, whereby they have made thee glad." (Psalms 45:8)
- Cedarwood — From the mighty "Cedars of Lebanon" came the fragrant and long-lasting wood used to build Solomon's temple. "And he spake of trees, from the cedar tree that is in Lebanon even unto the hyssop that springeth out of the wall." (1 Kings 4:33)
- Cypress — This oil is extracted from the cypress tree, which has wood so durable that the cypress doors of St. Peter's in Rome show no sign of decay even after 1,200 years. "He heweth him down cedars, and taketh the cypress and the oak, which he strengtheneth for himself among the trees of the forest." (Isaiah 44:14)
- Frankincense — The Hebrew word for frankincense, levonah (sometimes translated as "incense"), is in the Bible 22 times. "Who is this that cometh out of the wilderness like pillars of smoke, perfumed with myrrh and frankincense, with all powders of the merchant?" (Song of Solomon 3:6)
- Galbanum — This oil has a pungent, balsamic odor. "And the Lord said unto Moses, Take unto thee sweet spices, stacte, and onycha, and galbanum; these sweet spices with pure frankincense of each there shall be a like weight." (Exodus 30:34)
- Hyssop — In 1745 one writer suggested 18 different plants for the biblical hyssop. While the exact variety may not be known, an antiseptic or cleansing property is suggested because it was employed in many purification rites. "Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean; wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow." (Psalms 51:7)
- Myrrh — Myrrh was used in burial and was highly regarded by David and Solomon. It was one of the ingredients of the holy anointing oil. "I have perfumed my bed with myrrh, and aloes, and cinnamon." (Proverbs 7:17)
- Myrtle — Myrtle branches are still used by Jews for the Feast of Tabernacles. "Go forth unto the mount, and fetch olive branches, and pine branches, and myrtle branches, and palm branches, and branches of thick trees, to make booths, as it is written." (Nehemiah 8:15)
- Onycha (pronounced oh-nigh-kah) — Onycha was an ingredient in the holy annointing oil: "And the Lord said unto Moses, Take unto thee sweet spices, stacte, and onycha, and galbanum; these sweet spices with pure frankincense: of each shall there be a like weight. (Exodus 30:34)
- Rose of Sharon/Cistus — This beautiful rose has a soft honey-like scent and may be the small shrubby tree called the rose of Sharon. I am the rose of Sharon, and the lily of the valley." (Song of Solomon 2:1)
- Spikenard — A very expensive oil, spikenard was sealed in alabaster boxes. "And [Jesus] being in Bethany, in the house of Simon the leper, as he sat at meat, there came a woman having an alabaster box of ointment of spikenard, very precious, and she brake the box, and poured it on his head." (Mark 14:3)
