Essential oils have been documented throughout history including in Ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics and the Bible. The oils that are spoken of in the Bible are not the diluted, synthetic versions that we find in grocery stores today. These were the ordinary medical means used by the Jews and Gentiles in ancient times. Essential oils or the plants that produced them are mentioned 36 out of 39 books in the Old Testament and 10 out of 27 of the books in the New Testament. The healing oils of the body are different than “olive oil”. The oils mentioned in the Bible, such as Frankincense, Myrrh, Sandalwood/aloes, and Balsam are very high in sesquiterpines. This class of oils carries oxygen, repairs DNA, protects DNA from breaking down, directly stimulates the pituitary, thymus and amygdala (where memory and emotions are stored). Many of the biblical oils are highly anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-tumoral. The following is a list of the biblical oils and some bible references for your study.
