Oils for healing, cleansing, and holy anointing are mentioned more than 500 times in the Bible. Aloes, Cassia, Frankincense, Galbanum, Hyssop, Balm, Spikenard, Cedarwood, Myrrh, and many more. Why did the Wisemen bring Jesus, Mary and Joseph the gift of Frankincense and Myrrh? What were they used for 2000 years ago? What are these precious oils used for today? Modern Science finds some of them to be as effective as antibiotics and to promote overall health, vitality and longevity. The Healing Oils of the Bible “And they went out…and they anointed with oil many that were sick and healed them.” Mark 6:12-13 First Essential Oil in the Bible • Myrrh – Story of Joseph and his brothers • Genesis 37:23-28 Gen. 43:11 Near Lake Tiberias, Site of Joseph's well Syria.

It carries molecules directly into the emotional center of the brain where memories & emotions are stored. Elevation (Joyful Blend) contains: Lavandin,Tangerine, Elemi, Lemon Myrtle, Melissa, YlangYlang, Osmanthus, Sandalwood Our Amazing Cells! • Our bodies have 100 trillion cells • Each cell has 6 gigabytes of memory (one person’s cells contain more memory than all the computers of the world combined!) • These 100 trillion cells must work together well for our bodies to function properly. • How cells communicate: 1. Nervous system – electrical pulses 2. Hormones – called Lingan’s (messages sent from brain thru courier system). Each lingan contains a key that will only open the cell to which it’s carrying a message for = The cells Receptor Site • These receptor sites can become blocked (unhealthy diet, pharmaceuticals, toxins in our bodies…) • Without clean receptor sites, cells cannot communicate, and the body malfunctions resulting in sickness. God’s Amazing Essential Oils • Because of the tiny molecular structure of the components of an essential oil, they are extremely concentrated. • On drop contains approx. 40 million-trillion molecules! (4 with 19 zeros after it!) 40,000,000,000,000,000,000 • We have 100-trillion cells • Therefore 1 drop of essential oil contains enough molecules to cover every cell in our bodies with 40,000 molecules. • Considering it only takes one molecule of the right kind to open a Receptor Site and communicate with the DNA to alter cellular function, you can see why even one drop can have profound effects on the body, brain, and emotions. Quick Mention of “The Big Triple Punch” - PMS A major aspect responsible for the therapeutic and healing ability familiar to essential oil users • Phenylpropanoids and Phenols – Cleans the receptor sites in our cells (along with alcohols, ketones and aldehydes). • Sesquiterpenes – come into the cell and erase/delete all the bad information. • Monoterpenes – Help to reprogram cells and reestablish cell to it’s healthy state. These 3 classes of chemical components may be why essential oils sometimes affect a healing that is virtually instant and also permanent. Interesting Things to Ponder… 1. Fragrances of essential oils were in the Garden of Eden. Genesis 1:11-13 2. Types of oils plants make: Essential Oils and Fatty Oils 3. The Biblical meaning of “anoint” is the Hebrew word “masach” which is to “rub or massage.” Very similar to the English word “massage”. Psalm 23 & Exodus 30:22-25 – Sacred Anointing Oil 4. The original healers in Bible-times were priests who often did their healing in temples. Leviticus 8: 1,2 & 10-12 5. Interesting point about Holy Anointing Oil (Cleaning the instruments in the temple) The Christmas Story: Matthew 2:1-12 The amazing gifts of Frankincense & Myrrh The Gift of Frankincense • Frankincense was valued more than gold during the ancient times. • Frankincense symbolizes divinity; it was one of the three gifts given to Jesus at his birth. • Frankincense was used to anoint the newborn sons of kings and priests, which helps to explain why it was brought to baby Jesus by the Magi. • Frankincense was once greatly valued throughout the Middle East, from Rome to India. It was very expensive and a gift having a wonderful fragrance. It was used for a variety of purposes such as incense (Ex. 30:34), medical treatment, and perfume (Song of Solomon 3:6; 4:14). We discover from the Bible that Frankincense was used in worship. • Frankincense was a Holy Anointing Oil, a cure-all. It was thought to assist one in the transition of death, used for embalming and perfume.

Myrrh is first mentioned in the Bible in Gen. 37:25, where the Ishmaelite caravan carried Joseph to slavery in Egypt. And When Jacob sent his sons into Egypt for food he told them to take along some myrrh as a gift for the man in charge (Gen 43:11). The Gift of Myrrh • Myrrh was an extremely valuable commodity during biblical times and was imported from India and Arabia. • Liquid myrrh was used in the making of the Holy Anointing oil for the anointing of the priests and the articles of the Tabernacle. • More Ancient Uses: Pregnant mothers anointed themselves for protection against infectious diseases • Used after childbirth to prevent or remove abdominal stretch marks. • Customarily used on umbilical cords of newborns to protect from infection, which symbolically is meant to cut off generational curses. * It may have been for all of these uses that Myrrh was brought to Mary and Baby Jesus. MYRRH (Commiphora myrrha) • Action: Anti-infectious, antiviral, parasitic (worms), hormone-like, anti-inflammatory, soothes skin conditions, anti-hyperthyroid, and supports immune system. • Traditional Indications: Bronchitis, diarrhea, dysentery, hyperthyroidism, stretch marks, thrush, ulcers, vaginal thrush and viral hepatitis. • Historical Uses: This oil may help asthma, athlete’s foot, candida, coughs, eczema, digestion, fungal infection, gingivitis, gum infections, hemorrhoids, mouth ulcers, ringworm, and sore throats, skin conditions (chapped and cracked), wounds, and wrinkles. SANDLEWOOD/ALOES (Santalum album) “And there came also Nicodemus, which at the first came to Jesus by night, and brought a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about seventy-five pounds. Taking Jesus’ body, Joseph and Nicodemus wrapped it with spices in strips of linen. This was in accordance with Jewish burial customs.” (John 19:39-40). Many botanists believe that aloes was derived from sandalwood, one of the oldest incenses known to man. Its 4,000-year history includes use as a carved wood as well as distillation for its sweet-, woody-, and fruity-scented oil. The great quantity of myrrh and aloes used in preparing Christ’s body for burial was indicative of respect. SANDLEWOOD/ALOES (Santalum album) • Action: Sandalwood is high in sesquiterpenes that have been researched in Europe for their ability to stimulate the pineal gland and the limbic region of the brain. The pineal gland is responsible for releasing melatonin, a powerful antioxidant that enhances deep sleep. Sandalwood is similar to Frankincense oil in its support of nerves and circulation. • Indications: Bronchitis (chronic), herpes, cystitis, and skin tumors. • Uses: May help with cystitis and urinary tract infections. It may also be beneficial for acne, depression, pulmonary infections, menstrual problems, nervous tension, and skin infection. It may help dry or dehydrated skin. • Emotional Uses: May unlock emotional trauma from DNA of cells, oxygenate the pineal and pituitary glands, thus improving attitude. CASSIA “All thy garments smell of myrrh, and aloes, and cassia, out of the ivory palaces, whereby they have made thee glad” (Psalm 45:8). CASSIA (Cinnamomum cassia) • Two of the oldest known spices in the world are cinnamon and cassia. It was an ingredient in the holy anointing oil and the incense that was burned daily in the temple. While its aroma is similar to cinnamon, cassia is chemically and physically quite different. • Action: Antibacterial, antiviral, and anti-fungal. • Traditional Uses: Immune system builder. The British have used this oil specifically for dyspepsia or colic with nausea. In Chinese medicine it is used particularly for vascular disorders. Cassia oil is among the most antiseptic of essential oils. CINNAMON Cinnamon comes from the inner bark layers of a tropical evergreen tree that is predominantly found in Sri Lanka. In the United States, most of what we know as cinnamon comes from the bark of the Cassia tree, and is not as sweet as real cinnamon. CINNAMON • Ancient Uses: Holy Anointing Oils. Perfume • Modern Uses: Antimicrobial and cleansing. The combination of powerful compounds in cinnamon oil make it one of the most powerful antibacterial, antimicrobial, antiparasitic, and antifungal oils of all! • In lab tests it had been proven as effective or better than several antibiotics. • Historical Use: Has been applied to several tropical diseases, typhoid, and can regulate blood sugar. • Applications: Diffuse, topically, orally and as incense. CYPRESS (Mediterranean Cypress) "He hewest him down cedars, and taketh the cypress and the oak, which he strengtheneth for himself among the trees of the forest" (Isaiah 44:14). The cypress tree is renowned for its durability. The sturdy cypress doors of St. Peter's in Rome, for example, show no signs of decay, even after 1,200 years! Some Bible scholars believe that cypress may be the "gopher wood" used to build Noah's Ark. CYPRESS • Action: Improves circulation and supports the nerves and intestines. Anti-infectious, antibacterial, anti-microbial (causative agent of tuberculosis), and strengthens blood of capillaries. • Traditional Indications: Arthritis, bronchitis, circulation, cramps, hemorrhoids, insomnia, intestinal parasites, menopausal problems, menstrual pin, pancreas insufficiencies, pulmonary infections, rheumatism, spasms, throat problems, varicose veins, and fluid retention. • Historical Use: This oil may be beneficial for asthma, strengthening blood capillary walls, reducing cellulite, circulatory system, strengthening connective tissue, coughs, edema, improving energy, gallbladder, bleeding gums, hemorrhaging, laryngitis, liver disorders, muscular cramps, nervous tension, nose bleeds, and ovarian cysts. It is outstanding when used in skin care, lessening scar tissue. • Emotional Use: Cypress influences, strengthens, and helps ease the feeling of loss. It creates a feeling of security, grounding, and helps heal emotional trauma. • Matthew 26:6-12 • James 5:13-16 Want to Know More? • Get a few great reference books • Attend other classes offered in our area • Listen to webinars from experts on line (www.builddoterra.com) Exciting Special Offers Tonight!
