"The Bible contains 33 species and more than 500 references to essential oils and aromatic plants from which they came."
When I read this in Dr. Stewart's book I wondered, "why don't I know more about these? After all, I've read my Bible and even taught classes but don't remember anything special about essential oils"
Dr. Stewart explains it this way in a section called, "Why Explain the Obvious?" He says the lack of detail to the oils in the Bible are because the authors were focused on other purposes, but also because oils in the form of incense, perfumes, spices ointments and medicines were so much a part of the lives of everyone that they needed no explanation."
I love to search old books for herbal healing, natural healing, etc. and until recently it wasn't easy to find these books. Our old timers and Native Americans knew how to use herbs and plants but it became lost knowledge. This is what happened to the oils of the Bible.
Frankincense and Myrrh were brought to our Savior when He was a baby. I knew what the names were but I didn't know that these are Essential Oils, did you? They were precious oils and of great value.
Frankincense properties include anti-infectious, antiseptic, anti-tumoral, expectorant, Immune-stimulant and sedative. Myrrh properties include Anti-infectious, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, astringent and tonic. These oils can be purchased and used today for our healing. Most of us have been conditioned to heading to the doctor for medicines if we have aches or sickness. There is another way through Essential Oils. Using Essential Oils is easy and they begin working within a few seconds of being applied to the skin or being diffused into the air.
I hope you will come back to learn more. My next post will feature Thieves Oil.
