Biblical Essential Oils
The study of biblical oils is very rewarding and at the same time very frustrating. Many references do not give clear meaning to the essential oils involved or they dispute other references. hat is right can be a difficult issue to determine but worth the effort. We suggest that you use pray or mediation to determine what the Bible is attempting to tell you. Ancient references can be misunderstood as to botanical source and may not exist at this present time. Substitutions may need to be considered. We have found that intention and prayer allow one to bring oils together to fulfill the biblical intention. It is up to you within your own divine guidance to determine this. Here is a list of common words with Hebrew, English and essential oil correspondence.
