“Take the following fine spices: 500 shekels of liquid myrrh, half as much (250 shekels) of fragrant cinnamon,
250 shekels of fragrant calamus, 500 shekels of cassia—all according to the sanctuary shekel—and a hin of
olive oil. Make these into a sacred anointing oil, a fragrant blend, the work of a perfumer. It will be the sacred
anointing oil.” – Exodus 30:23-25

Essential oils can be powerful tools for improving levels of wellness and expanding consciousness, and they form
part of an ancient healing tradition that dates back thousands of years. In this month of December—a month that
includes Kwanzaa, Hanukkah, Christmas and spiritually significant days for Muslims, Buddhists, Pagans and
Zoroastrians—we’d like to share these sacred oils.

There are numerous references throughout the Bible regarding anointing oils to be used for ceremonial purposes,
and Young Living’s Oils of Ancient Scripture™ set contains 10 oils created from the most significant plants,
botanicals, and resins mentioned in the Bible—from Cypress (Isaiah 44:14) to “the rose of Sharon” (Song of Solomon

When we share these particular essential oils in our Polarity Therapy classes, we notice our participants having
profound experiences, reporting that they can really let go and obtain inner peace and calm.

brought to Jesus.

Biblical figures such as David and Solomon.

to do so by God.
