I can still recall walking into the dimly lit room for a massage and becoming acutely aware of a pleasant, almost calming odor in the air. It smelled so foreign to me: What was this fragrance? The aroma made me feel happy and relaxed all at the same time. There were several small machines throughout the spa, shooting a beautiful-smelling mist up and out into the air. You just couldn’t quite put your finger on what it was, but you knew the aroma was rich and uplifting. I have come to know these scents as eucalyptus, lavender, frankincense, myrrh, sandalwood, and many more. The health benefits of applying and inhaling these precious oils are priceless for our health and well-being.
Aromatherapy has become more popular today than ever, as science has found that pure, therapeutic-grade essential oils have enormous benefits to our health. As I began to learn about the essential oils, I realized there is a huge community of people who are just as fascinated by their healing properties as I am. People in the United States, as well as across the globe, are getting back to basics and using the oils to heal themselves. These oils are not just used as aromatherapy, they are also used topically when diluted. I began researching and working with these healing oils and came to realize that they dated back to biblical times. The oils are mentioned more than two hundred times in the New and Old Testaments of the Bible. There are actually twelve essential oils mentioned in the Bible: calamus, cinnamon, frankincense, juniper, cassia, cypress, galbanum, myrrh, cedar wood, fir, hyssop, and myrtle.
As children many of us are taught the Bible story of the three wise men. They brought the baby Jesus the gifts of frankincense and myrrh, as these oils were very precious in those times. The baby Jesus was anointed with spikenard, a spiritual oil used for relaxing, centering, and grounding the body. It is used for conditions of the heart and the nervous system today. I did not realize how precious these oils were. They were more expensive than gold in biblical times because the people knew that they held healing properties within them. Essential oils were used in ancient times for anointing and cleansing, in medicines and ointments, and for aromatic healing, and each oil holds a special energy within it to cure our ailments. This is what the oils were intended for.
After researching the compounds of the oils and what they were used for, I learned that the oils penetrate our skin rather quickly. As I studied further, I was reminded that in biblical times, the oils were applied to people’s feet. I discovered this was done because the pores of the feet are large and can absorb the oils more easily and quickly. Once absorbed into the body, the oils can last up to a week. Now that’s amazing healing power!
Oils each have their own unique frequency, and each part of the body has a frequency as well. Research has shown that the frequency of an oil causes it to be attracted to the like frequency within the body. The quickest way to absorb the oils is through the inhalation of the mist. The second quickest way is through the feet, then the ears.
One of the most important oils to keep on hand is called “thieves oil.” This story explains the reason why. During the Black Death plague of the sixteenth century, a band of thieves was apprehended and brought before the king. The king forced them to explain how they were able to steal money and jewelry from the deceased victims and not contract the highly contagious disease themselves. The king, of course, wanted to protect his family and his kingdom from getting the plague as well. The thieves confessed that they came from a family of apothecaries. With their knowledge of healing remedies passed down through generations, they were able to combine specific oils extracted from plants. With the right combination of oils, they could protect themselves from the plague. This historic occurrence shows the power within the essential oils and the healing power they provide for us as God intended.
The recipe for thieves oil can still be found in the Royal English Archives to this day. The recipe includes clove, lemon, cinnamon, rosemary, and eucalyptus. This combination of oils in the Thieves® proprietary blend was tested at Weber State University in Ogden, Utah. The findings show a 99.96 percent effective rate against airborne bacteria. We are fortunate that thieves oil is sold today by many vendors across the country. We use thieves oil in our household for cleaning and disinfecting. Essential oil companies have created cleaning solutions, dish soap, dishwasher soap, and hand soap using the thieves oil blend.
