Oils of Ancient Scripture Kit contents
- Aloes/Royal Hawaiian Sandalwood (Santalum paniculatum)
“And there came also Nicodemus, which at first came to Jesus by night, and brought a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about a hundred pound weight.” (John 19:39)
Aloes (also known as sandalwood) has a rich, sweet, warm, wood aroma. Used traditionally as incense in religious ceremonies and for meditation, it is uplifting, relaxing and valued in skin care. Sandalwood is high in sesquiterpenes and has been studied for its ability to oxygenate the brain.*
- Cassia (Cinnamomum cassia)
“All they garments smell of myrrh, and aloes, and cassia, out of the ivory palaces, by whereby they have made thee glad.” (Psalm 45:8)
Cassia is one of the ingredients in Moses’ Holy Anointing Oil and it was burned daily in the temple. Two of the oldest known spices in the world are cinnamon and cassia. Cassia is similar to cinnamon, but has a more pungent, less delicate aroma. It is known for its cleansing properties.*
- Cedarwood (Cedrus atlantica)
“And he shall take, to cleanse the house, two birds, cedarwood, scarlet, and hyssop.” (Leviticus 14:49)
Cedarwood has a warm, balsamic, woody aroma. It was an integral part of two Biblical purification rituals. Smelling cedarwood helps clear the mind of clutter and clarify thinking.* Cedarwood is recognized historically for its calming and purifying properties.
- Cypress (Cupressus sempervirens)
“He cuts down cedars for himself, And takes the cypress and the oak; He secures it for himself among the trees of the forest.” (Isaiah 44:14)
Its fresh, herbaceous, slightly evergreen aroma is refreshing and restores feelings of security and stability. It is used to support the circulatory system.* Cypress is also beneficial for oily or troubled skin. Some Bible scholars believe that cypress may be the “gopher wood” used to build Noah’s Ark.
- Frankincense (Boswellia carteri)
“Who is this coming out the wilderness like pillars of smoke, performed with myrrh and frankincense…?” (Song of Solomon 3:6)
Frankincense is stimulating and elevating to the mind. Useful for visualizing, improving one’s spiritual connection.* Frankincense is considered the holy anointing oil in the Middle East, where it has been used in religious ceremonies for thousands of years. It is the second most frequently mentioned oil of the Bible.
- Hyssop (Hyssopus officinalis)
“Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean; Wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.” (Psalm 51:7)
Hyssop has a fresh, woody scent that is slightly sweet. Hyssop was used in purification rituals and is noted for its purifying properties. It is also known for supporting the respiratory system. It can be used to uplift the spirits.*
- Myrrh (Commiphora myrrha)
“…And when they had opened their treasures, they presented gifts to Him; gold, frankincense, and myrrh.” (Matthew 2:11)
Myrrh is mentioned 156 times in the Bible, more than any other oil. Myrrh has a rich, smoky, balsamic aroma that is purifying, restorative, revitalizing, and uplifting. It is a helpful aid to meditation, having one of the highest levels of sesquiterpenes available. It is used to support healthy skin.*
- Myrtle (Myrtus communis)
“…And instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle tree; And it shall be to the LORD for a name, for an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off.” (Isaiah 55:13)
Myrtle has a clear fresh, herbaceous scent, similar to eucalyptus. Supportive of the respiratory system, skin, and hair, it has been researched for its effects of glandular imbalances and its soothing effects when inhaled.*
- Onycha (Styrax benzoin)
“And the LORD said to Moses: ‘Take sweet spices, stacte and onycha and galbanum, and pure frankincense with these sweet spices…'” (Exodus 30:34)
Onycha was used traditionally in the holy incense. It has a wonderful odor of vanilla because it contains vanillin aldehyde, also found in the vanilla plant. It is known for its ability to heal wounds. It also helps supports the digestive system and uplift the spirits.*
- Rose of Sharon/Cistus (Cistus ladanifer)
“I am the rose of Sharon, and the lily of the valley…” (Song of Solomon 2:1)
Rose of Sharon (also known as Cistus) comes from a rose that has a soft, honey-like scent. Calming and uplifting, it is helpful for meditating and counseling. Traditionally, cistus has been used to support the immune system.*
