Oils for Healing Purposes

God so thoughtfully prescribed aromatic oils for the Old Testament people as a means to uplift their spirits, enable them to pray more easily and communicate with Jesus, and as a means to protect themselves from the pathogens that could arise from daily animal sacrifices and infectious disease.

Could it be possible that God, in His loving thoughtfulness, also had in mind that we apply His oils today for health, protection and healing in our daily lives?

Jesus Himself instructed to anoint with oils and heal the sick. Nothing has changed since then…except us that is, in forgetting and overlooking this wonderful gift that God has given us of healing others through laying on of hands, anointing with oil, and praying. Prayer can work on its own, the oils can work on their own, but combined together with the laying on of hands is optimal!

I’ve always wondered through the years why those that have the gift of healing didn’t just go into the hospitals and heal everyone there? Now, I see why. Not everyone has their faith in the right spot. Some have no faith at all. Jesus never prayed for healing for someone that didn’t first believe.

One of God’s first gifts may be what again preserves mankind’s existence. Because of the instructions given to use the essential oils, the priests and helpers never got sick from it.

God’s aromatic anointing oil and incense not only hold secrets that served ancient man but we will learn how they can serve us today.

Aloes/Sandalwood (Santalum album) has a rich, sweet, warm, and woody aroma that is sensual and romantic. Used traditionally as incense in religious ceremonies and for meditation, it is uplifting and relaxing. It is valued in skin care for its moisturizing and normalizing properties. Sandalwood has an approximate ORAC of 1,655 (TE/L). TE/L is expressed as micromole Trolox equivalent per liter. Sandalwood contains the forth highest concentration of sesquiterpenes of all the oils (90%), and has been researched for its ability to stimulate the pineal gland and the limbic region of the brain. It supports the nerves and circulation like Frankincense.

Sesquiterpenes deprogram misinformation and carry oxygen at the cellular level.

Medicinal properties: Enhances deep sleep, supportive of female reproductive and endocrine systems, helps with cystitis and urinary tract infections, menstrual problems, nervous tension, and skin infections.

Historical uses: *Apply on tumor to remove them * Rub above eyebrows around the eye to help with vision * Use as men’s cologne * Apply on tummy area for acute or chronic diarrhea * Cold sores * Massage in hair and scalp to retard graying * Use to prevent infection from wounds and speed healing.

Keep out of reach of children. If pregnant, nursing, taking medication, or have a medical condition, consult a healthcare practitioner prior to use. Keep in a cool, dark place.

3 Wise Men (A blend of oils containing Sandalwood (Aloes), Myrrh, Juniper, Frankincense, Spruce, and Almond Oil as a base). Promotes feelings of reverence and spiritual awareness with a blend of therapeutic-grade essential oils formulated to open the subconscious. This blend, considered a gift by many, enhances emotional equilibrium as it soothes and uplifts the heart.

Possible skin sensitivity. If pregnant or under a doctor’s care, consult your physician. Dilution not required; suitable for all but the most sensitive skin. Generally safe for children over 2 years of age.

Galbanum (Ferula gummosa) has an earthy aroma. It was used in ancient temple ritual incense anointings associated with springtime. Galbanum supports the immune, digestive, respiratory, circulatory, and other body systems.* It is also useful as an aid for troubled or mature skin. Galbanum has an approximate ORAC of 261,826 (TE/L). TE/L is expressed as micromole Trolox equivalent per liter. It is anti-infectious, analgestic, antispasmodic, stimulant, supports kidneys, and helps during menstruation. Though Galbanum has low frequency, when it is combined with other oils such as Frankincense or Sandalwood, the frequency rises dramatically.

Historical uses: *Use on temple to bring feelings back into emotional balance * Used for indigestion by rubbing a drop on the stomach * Inhaled or applied to temples or massage into scalp to relieve a headache * Used during times of prayer for deeper spiritual awareness.

Exodus II is a timeless blend of essential oils from the same type of plants that Moses used for temple incense. Exodus II energizes while it complements Young Living’s Exodus dietary supplement.

Anointing with oils is prescribed by God, Himself. Exodus 30:22-36; 1 Samuel 16:13; 1 Kings 1:39; Psalm 23:5

Where do you first turn when you need healing of some type? The hospital, 911, God?  Who or what are we putting our faith in?
