Yeah! Day 1 of A Biblical Look on Essential Oils!
Did you know, the people in the bible were way more knowledgeable about essential oils than we are today. They used these oils for anointing, religious rituals, and for supporting peoples health.
So it only seems appropriate to begin this class with one of the more famous oils… Myrrh.
Myrrh is mentioned 18 times directly in the bible and 138 times indirectly. Some other verses where you will find Myrrh mentioned are:
-Song of Solomon 1:13
-Song of Solomon 3:6
-Song of Solomon 4:6
-Song of Solomon 4:14
-Song of Solomon 5:1
-Song of Solomon 5:5
If you are familiar with the Old Testament, then you have heard the phrase “holy anointing oil”. Moses was given a recipe for this holy anointing oil which consisted of myrrh, cinnamon, calamus, and cassia.
The Arabian people used myrrh for many skin conditions, such as chapped and cracked skin and wrinkles.
I recently started using Myrrh when I received it in my essential rewards order. I started doing some research on ways to use this healing oil of the bible and I found some amazing uses for Myrrh. Since it is a “fix it” oil it helps prolong any oil that it is paired with. So I thought why not add it to my daily face cleansing routine. Maybe I will start looking like I’m 16 again! (hehehe).
My favorite use:
I add one drop along with 1 drop of frankincense to my daily face cleansing routine to promote healthy skin.
Tune in tomorrow as we take a closer look at the oils of the Bible!
Living Well in Him,
