The Power of Biblical Oils
– Respiratory system, skin and brain
The well-known sacred oils are a combination recommended according to the Bible, including 10 kinds of the most effective plants mentioned in the Ancient Scripture. The combination is characterized by the fresh fragrance of myrtle and cedarwood, as well as the rich fragrance of frankincense and myrrh, bringing people to enjoy and appreciate the intriguing history of these precious pure essential oils.
In the Bible, essential oil was sacred. It was a way for people to connect with God and helped their soul meet. It is recommended the users to communicate with their soul during application. In the old time of Jesus Christ, essential oils were used for health care. More than two thousand years ago, frankincense and myrrh were even “sacred gifts” for the birth of Jesus. We now can use the oils to relieve anxiety, arthritis, asthma, respiratory infections, parasites, throat problems, etc…
Just 1-3 times a week, half an hour before going to bed, you can apply the 10 essential oils, in sequence, around the temples to the ears (dilute with base oil as needed, for example, dilution ratio as 1:5 to 1:10 for children) or massage the big toes (brain reflex area) or rub the feet bottom. Wait for a few seconds after applying one essential oil, and then apply another for better results. Add a pump of base oil as you wish for dilution at the end. The use of essential oils is a supplement for the body to heal by itself but not for medical treatment.
