Cedarwood and Solomon

“Beloved, I wish above all things that you may prosper and be in health, even as your soul prospers.” 3 John 2

Cedarwood, one of  “The Twelve Oils of Ancient Scripture” oils that we use in the study by Dr. David Stewart called, “Healing, God’s Forgotten Gift.” This eight week study allows us to use the oils, share, grasp, and see clearly the resources God has made readily available before our existence. Each one has meaning for every household.

Sadly, we have chosen not to see, recognize, learn about, or use these resources.

King Solomon was one of the wisest people to ever have lived (1 Kings 3:5-12; 4:29-34). From day one of his reign, he asked God for wisdom. He had chose Cedarwood for building material in building the temple and his decision changes the course of Israel’s relationship with God (1 Kings 5)

Have you ever wondered why Solomon used Cedarwood to build God’s temple? Cedarwood would have been one of the most expensive building materials in Solomon’s time and very difficult to get.

King Solomon was aware of the history and value of Cedarwood just as his father, King David was. King David used it to build his own palace. The Egyptians used it for preserving documents. Insects had a natural dislike for the aroma.

Solomon knew that Cedarwood did more than work well as a construction material it also had effects on mental thought. He also knew that Cedarwood would be valued as much as a king’s ransom in creating a structure worthy to come within and worship God.

This long-lasting aromatic substance did more than simply preserve cloth, scrolls, and worldly treasures, its fragrance cleared the mental passages of those who came to worship God in this temple.

Also, Cedarwood oil mixed with Hyssop was used as a medicinal oil. God gave Moses the formula for leprosy and a variety of rashes, swelling, eruptions, and diseases of the skin, which includes psoriasis, skin cancers and some tumors (Leviticus 14:54)

If the scent of Cedarwood was good for King Solomon, does it make sense that we could also benefit from using it?

It makes sense to apply a mentally enhancing aroma, created by God, to assist us in our praying, our studies, and in our thinking. Of all essential oils, Cedarwood is highest in sesquiterpenes which are oxygen delivering molecules capable of crossing the blood-brain barrier.

Uses: mental clarity, effective insect repellant, enhance immune system, and boost the body’s natural defenses, help to inhibit hair loss, bronchitis, enhance deep sleep, improve symptoms of sinusitis, clean, disinfect, and protect wounded skin from infection, and much more.

Scriptures where you can learn about Cedarwood and how it was used to benefit ones health in many ways. Psalm 104:16 ~ Leviticus 14:1-2, 4, 15,-18, 54 ~ 1 Kings 6:15

Anointing parts on the body (Lev. 14): Lobe of ear, pad of right thumb, and right big toe. All are emotional release points (Exodus 29, Lev. 8 & 14).

All are on the right side and correspond to reflex points for the right brain to which emotional memories are analogue.

They are specifically stated in the Bible and have specific application of reflexology. The Old Testament priest’s must have known something about reflexology even though the word doesn’t appear anywhere in the Bible.

The right big toe is where addictions and compulsory behavior can be released. That includes bad habits you might have.

The lobe of the right ear is where blockages in ones heart or mind can be released and helps us relieve of prejudice or forms of narrowedness that interferes with our relationship with God.

The pad of the right thumb is where mental or emotional blocks to learning and acquiring new information are released.

Applying Cedarwood to these points can lead to the release of the emotions associated there.

It is my prayer that you will rediscover and experience the gifts God has given to us to restore and heal our physical and emotional body. That he would give you wisdom to learn all the wonderful benefits to your health and the health of your loved ones when using what He has provided.

“God’s perfect will is not to heal you; His perfect will is that you don’t get sick to begin with.”
