What are Essential Oils? Essential Oils Defined “The term “essential oil” is a contraction of the original “quintessential oil.” This stems from the Aristotelian idea that matter is composed of four elements, namely, fire, air, earth, and water. The fifth element, or quintessence, was then considered to be spirit or life force. Distillation and evaporation were thought to be processes of removing the spirit from the plant and this is also reflected in our language since the term “spirits” is used to describe distilled alcoholic beverages such as brandy, whiskey, and eau de vie. The last of these again shows reference to the concept of removing the life force from the plant. …..” National Association for Holistic Aromatherapy UNIQUE CHEMISTRY OF BIBLICAL OILS: The dominant classes of compounds in the oils of the Bible are: Sesquiterpenes, Monoterpenes, and Phenols (including phenylpropanoids) along with Ketones, Aldehydes, and Esters. There are more than 10,000 types of sesquiterpenes, more than 2,000 varieties of monoterpenes, and hundreds of phenols along with thousands of kinds of ketones, aldehydes, and esters. Phenols, ketones, and aldehydes are antiseptic, cleanse receptor sites, and detoxify our bodies. Sesquiterpenes are oxygenating, mood elevating, and deprogram miswritten or garbled codes in the DNA. Monoterpenes are hostile to microbes and reprogram cells with correct information. Esters are calming, stress-reducing, and emotionally releasing. UNIQUE CHEMISTRY OF BIBLICAL OILS: Sesquiterpenes are mainly in: Cedarwood-98%, Sandalwood-95%, Cypress-12%. Myrrh-65%, Spikenard-46%, and Monoterpenes are in: Frankincense-82%, Cypress-77%, Galbanum-75%, Rose of Sharon-54%, Myrtle-37%, Spikenard-36%, and Hyssop-30%. Phenols are in: Calamus-30%, Cinnamon-25%, and Cassia-8%. These last three oils are all ingredients of the Holy Anointing Oil of Exodus 30:23-24 UNIQUE CHEMISTRY OF BIBLICAL OILS: Sesquiterpenes and Monoterpenes can be spiritually elevating by stimulating the pineal gland and their oxygenating capabilities can create an environment that makes it difficult for cancer cells to survive. They are also strong supporters of the immune system and boost the body’s natural defenses. Phenols, in addition to their antimicrobial and cleansing abilities, also promote hormonal balance and healthy bodily function. Modern research has found Cinnamon oil to be as effective against certain bacteria as Penicillin and Ampicillin. Thus, the oils of the Bible serve us on all levels: Spiritual, Emotional, Mental, and Physical.
