Out of his being. Created in the garden. Grown in profusion and filling the air with the essence of
heaven.The fragrances of the Creator. Holy anointing oil, poured out on Kings and priests, the high and the low. Anointing
the head and feet of Messiah, consecrating vessels, softening the spirit, healing the body, cleansing the soul. Song1:3 "Pleasing
is the fragrance of your oils; your name is like perfume poured out." Pr 21:20 " There is desirable treasure
and oil in the dwelling of the wise."
Each Oil or fragrance has
a deep symbolic meaning in its use and the purpose for which it was chosen. The oils themselves do not carry any power of
their own, they are a prophetic tool, a symbolic example, declaring an unspoken truth. Anointing oils are an aid to prayer
and can increase faith as well as give direction when led by the Holy Spirit. The bible is full of symbolic elements being
used to release the Lord's desire. The use of prophetic anointing oils can open a door for the release of His blessing and
the fragrance of His presence to overcome.
All our oils are preblended in extra virgin olive oil. Olive oil is representiative
of the Holy Spirit, the one that unites all the elements and holds them together.
A rare and costly fragrant oil. Being difficult to obtain, Spikenard was considered extremely rare and was one of the costliest
aromatics of the ancient world. Spikenard speaks of extravagant devotion and intimacy without regard to cost. Mary of Bethany
broke open the alabaster jar and anointed the feet of Jesus - her beloved, boldly and without fear of man in a humble act
Frankincense: In ancient days Frankincense was also very valuable and costly. It was prized for its medicinal
virtues as well as used in incense and perfumes. Frankincense was one of the spices given to the Christ child at his birth.
In Hebrew Frankincense means " to make or become absolutely white" representing purity. In the temple Frankincense
was one of the ingredients in the incense that was burnt before the Lord day and night and was also the primary ingredient
in the Holy anointing oil.
a highly prized medicine in biblical days and beyond. Throughout the scriptures Myrrh is mentioned 17 times in the old testament as
well as the new and was known to be a highly prized commodity. Myrrh was used as a burial spice and used in purification
rites and was a primary ingredient in the Holy Anointing oil. The Hebrew word for Myrrh means "bitter", though Myrrh
is fragrant and sweet to smell it was bitter to the taste. Myrrh was one of the gifts offered to Jesus at his birth and also
offered to him on the cross, at his death. It represents "death to self", as we walk out the sufferings of Jesus
in our present day and become more like him, we give off a sweet smelling fragrance to the Lord and those around
one of the principal spices of the Holy anointing oil used to anoint kings, priests and their garments. cassia was highly
valued in biblical times and the root word in Hebrew means to strip off, to stoop or bow low. Cassia represents humility,
being stripped of pride, set apart (Holy) with a servants heart. Even in the natural cassia is prepared by literally stripping
the bark away from the shrub where it is then ground into very fine powder, the process we go through to produce humility. Jesus
is our ultimate example, even his robes carry the fragrance of Cassia (Ps 45:8).
a well known plant in the bible and is referred to 10 times in the Old Testament and two in the New Testament. Hyssop was
first mentioned Ex12:22, in applying the blood to the doorpost's during passover, this application was a seal of protection
against the plague of death. Hyssop was used in connection with ceremonial cleansing (Lev 14:4) and speaks of spiritual cleansing
by the refining fire of the Holy Spirit. It is interesting to note that the hyssop plant grows in arid climates and rocky
places, so our cleansing also comes out of the trials and testings in everyday life. Ps 51:7 "cleanse me with hyssop
and I will be clean, purge me and I will be whiter than snow"
is mentioned 51 times in the bible and in most cases refers to the famous "Cedars of Lebanon". The root word for
cedars means "firm". This tree often reached 120 ft in height with a 40 ft circumference. not only is this
tree noble, beautiful and fragrant but almost indestructible by insects. Cedars were used to build David's house as well as
Solomon's house and much of the First Temple. It was also used along with hyssop in the cleansing of a leper's house. It speaks
of strength, permanence and wholeness.
The first mention of cinnamon is in Ex 30:23 as one of the ingredients in the Holy Anointing Oil. It is also one of the prized
botanicals in King Solomon's locked garden (SS 4:14). cinnamon is one of the oldest spices known to man and provided oil for
perfume, food flavouring, and was considered one of the chief spices of the Near East, at times it was even more valuable
than gold. The Hebrew word for cinnamon means to be "erect" or "upright" and points to the holiness of
Jesus, being upright and blameless in all he did. Symbolically it represents holiness, the chief ingredient that releases a
fragrance that draws us to the Lord.
