The bible is rich in references to aromatic botanicals, aromatic oils and anointing oils used for healing, ceremonial purification, blessings, anointing, beauty and perfumery.
There has been so much interest in essential oils in recent years but did you know that plant aromatics have been used for thousands of years by ancient civilizations and it is recorded in the bible from Genesis to Revelation?
With Passover and Easter around the corner, I thought this would be a great time to explore the oils and plant aromatics mentioned in ancient scripture and how these are relevant for us today as modern solution to support our health and wellbeing. Personally, have journeyed with these oils since 2007 and I truly love them.
I have been immensely blessed by using these oils not just for my own wellbeing but have introduced them to my loved ones and clients as well. I must say that I am still getting to know them and their healing power, oils like Frankincense, Cedarwood, Galbanum, Onycha, Cypress, Juniper, Fir, Cassia, Cinnamon, Spikenard & Myrrh feature in my wellbeing blends and perfumes and they are the ones I will be sharing in this upcoming workshop in April - see details below.
There is treasure to be desired and oil in the dwelling of the wise.” – Proverbs 21:20
Why does the above scripture say that possession of oil is a sign of wisdom?
You have probably heard of the Christmas story and the 3 Wise Men bringing Frankincense, Gold & Myrrh to gift baby Jesus, but did you know that Spikenard was used to prepare him for His burial?
Also, in the famous story of the Good Samaritan, we often hear about his heart of charity and compassion for this unknown traveller but did you know that the act of charity that Jesus commended was his great generosity - and that was in him pouring wine and oil on the wounds of the poor traveller who was robbed and left to die by the roadside.
This is just one of the accounts in Scripture that is not in plain sight about oils but I have found so many scripture references to oils and that is quite exciting for someone who loves and uses these plant aromatics.
So if you have always wanted to find out more about ancient oils of the bible and want to have a hands-on experience, join me in this workshop .You will get to know and connect with these powerful fragrances and have the opportunity to learn about the historic healing properties of these pure oils.
There is no cost to attend this workshop. You do have the opportunity to purchase oils and have custom made blends made for you from the olfactive and sensory connection you make with the oils towards the end of the session.
