10 OILS FOR EVERY HOUSE

Essential oils tend to create a bit of controversy, even among believers in Jesus. Given that there are over 600 verses that discuss oils and the plants they come from, I find this most disturbing. Some go so far as to say using essential oils is a form of idol worship. There certainly is idol worship in our world, yet that statement is misplaced. In ancient cultures all over the world, the healers of any society were the priests. When science came on the scene men’s faith in God began to be replaced by faith in science in the belief that the scientific method could provide answers to all life’s questions. Textbooks now are completely void of any mention of God, yet He is still Healer. Prayer and God are not required in medical school. Yet, God is the One who heals. It is Him and Him alone that will bring healing and allow it to take place.


 

A LOOK AT MODERN MEDICINE


Over 100,000 people die every year in the US alone from properly administered prescription drugs, and another 100,000 die from improperly administered drugs and medical mistakes. This does not take into account the recent virus and the number of deaths which occurred in March due to medical mismanagement.

Between the time of 1993-98 fewer than 200 deaths occurred from taking herbs and supplements (not essential oils), and almost 1 Million people died from properly prescribed medications. This has become the leading cause of death in the US, only a little higher than cancer and cardiovascular disease.


The roots of modern medicine are revealed in the Greek word used in scripture- pharmakeuein, meaning to practice witchcraft, the word pharmokon meaning poison.

In the book of Galatians, 5:19-21, Paul lists acts of the flesh as The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; 20 idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions. Paul uses the word pharmakeia, medicine or drugs from a pharmacy. Looks like the bible is warning us against such medicine.

It is important to be equipped with the knowledge of words and how they are used so that you fully understand the use and intent of oils, incense and herbs as we find them in the scriptures.


If oils are from God, how then should we use them?

Glossing over the hundreds of scriptures that speak to the use of anointing oils and their use is just unacceptable. Especially if we claim to hold fast to the word of God.

One aspect of God's character is His Divine provision. Throughout the ages He has provided something that we have only recently rediscovered~ liquid gold, AKA essential oils. These have made a profound impact on my own family and millions around the world. Many people have found life again from using these oils. The first mention of essential oils in the bible is Genesis 37:25; Joseph was sold as a slave by his brothers for the price of 20 shekels of silver traders carrying spices, balms and myrrh.

The intent of discussing oils in scripture was to record God’s word. When they are mentioned it is more in the line of worshipping, religious ceremonies, and anointings for kings. In Matthew and Luke it’s mentioned as tithing as well. Emotionally uplifting and spiritual attributes of oils are suggested but not explained. Being a part of the times and cultures it is likely that to record such trivial matters was unthinkable.


 

With the advent of modern science as we now know it to be, we have the opportunity to research and discover how these oils ought to be used as well as their healing properties. Let's have a look-


OIL IN THE HOUSE

of the wise...

In Genesis 1:29-30, God gives to mankind every plant and tree for food. The word for food is 'that which is eaten', the idea being for any reason, filling, nourishment or medicine.
In Ezekiel 47:12 we read, "on the banks, on both sides of the river, there will grow all kinds of tress for food. Their leaves will not wither not their fruit fail, but they will bear fresh fruit every month, because the water for them flows from the sanctuary. Their fruit will be for food and their leaves for healing"
In Revelation 22:2 "the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations."

CREATE YOUR OWN EDEN

with Cedarwood...

Imagine in the Garden of Eden what that must have smelled like- pure, unadulterated plant fragrances wafting through the air. As it turns out we can live in our comfortable abodes and still create a mini Eden.

Cedarwood is thought to be the oldest known oil distilled as the wood was used for all manner of objects and uses in Egypt and we see it in our scriptures as wood fit for a king as well as a place for worship.


Inhaling Cedarwood increases the ability to think clearly and opens the awareness needed for meditation (listening to God and chewing on His word) and prayer (you talking to God). Cedarwood has been suggested to prevent senility and Alzheimer's. Dating all the way back to 3500 BC, Cedarwood was used for situations such as temple worship, emotional clearing, mental clarity, embalming, and insect repellant.

For even more practical uses outside your daily worship, use this essential oil to remove blocks that hinder you from learning, especially when learning something new.


ATTENTION ALL YOU NEW TO HOME SCHOOLERS.... perhaps now is the time to open a fresh bottle of Cedarwood and go nuts on your children.

In addition to this, Cedarwood is a melatonin stimulant so you will get a deeper sleep when applying to the brain stem or diffusing at night.

CREATE YOUR OWN EDEN

with Aloes (Sandalwood)...


Raise your hand if you've ever thought Sandalwood was a bit salty on the price? Joseph of Arimethea knew the cost, yet chose to invest $200,000 worth of Aloes and Myrrh to bury the body of our Lord. $90 doesn't sound too high now, does it?

Especially when understand truly how remarkable this essential oil is. As mentioned above, Sandalwood has been seen to help remove the negative emotions of fear, terror, dread and co-dependency. Overthink and worry too much? This one assists with that too. Remember, if you are put off OR if you find yourself so in love with this oil, both feelings indicated an emotional need for it. Dig in my friends, this is one to sit with.


WRITE THIS DOWN


Sandalwood reprograms miswritten information and carries oxygen at a cellular level. A drop over the face to tell your skin to regenerate in a youthful manner, over the abdomen for the ladies to encourage healthy reproductive activity, over the thyroid for a happy thyroid and finally- over the bladder to keep things flowing at a normal rate.

Myrrh

Myrrh has long been an oil used as a fixative, something added to hold the aroma of another oil or scent source. The coolest part about that is when we hold the aroma longer, we also reap the benefits of that oil. Myrrh was also one the oils brought to Jesus, Mary and Joseph. In times past I would have said "if it's good enough for Jesus, it is sure enough for me". Yet, the wise men wouldn't have brought Jesus because He needed the oils, though they certainly had some benefit for Mary and Joseph seeing that the incense was quite valuable. The Wise Men brought what they treasured most.


Please think about this... what they TREASURED they GAVE.

It's super lovely to make up notions such as Mary needed it for birth or preventing stretch marks. While those benefits exist for us using Myrrh, it would not have been a use Mary had. By the time she was gifted Myrrh, the birthing was long over with, about 2 years later in fact. And stretch marks, hmmm, that certainly is taking liberty in the idea of vanity in an ancient culture who didn't put as much stock in what the body of a woman looked like. Let's not assume to know how she would have used it personally, given there was no fashion magazine to tell Mary her hip were akin to road maps, which, also not applicable.



WRITE THIS DOWN


Myrrh in ancient times was used for skin conditions, oral hygiene, embalming, and as an insect repellent.

In a modern sense with all our unchecked negative emotions swirling about, fear of facing the world is a key use for the oil of Myrrh. When fear of any kind is present the adrenals in the body take a hit. The best place to apply Myrrh when dealing with fears? You guessed it, adrenals!

When applying this oil it is best practice to praying pair an affirmation of "I AM safe, I FEEL secure" in order to train your mind to be fully and utterly at peace with the word around you.


Dig into your bibles my friends and note the ways this oil is mentioned. Also, in the case of our wealth Wise Men, they were also men who saw the signs in the sky, and knew this Child was special. The gifts they brought were prophetic as well, since Myrrh was an embalming oil. Pair that with the fact that when He was born, Jesus was wrapped in Mary's death clothes (common for a hugely pregnant woman to have on a road trip in case she died along the way). His birth was incredibly symbolic of what was to come.

Rather than shower your loved ones with gifts this year, perhaps your time and resources would be better spent on getting to know this Savior who came in such an obscure way, who was given truly strange yet wonderful gifts.


 

attention all bedwetters

Well you certainly are giving attention now are you not?

I purchased this oil for two reason-

  1. to remove cockroaches

  2. to help my little one stop wetting the bed.

It only worked on the second issue. The other required diatomaceous earth.

Let's talk some healing properties and get down to business.



CREATE YOUR OWN EDEN

Cypress

Grounding, peaceful, serene... Yes these all describe the oil of Cypress and I should think just that alone would inspire one to create their own garden of sorts. It is also spiritually grounding and helps us accept change by allowing us to go with the flow and feeling more secure with ourselves.

WRITE THIS DOWN

When it comes to insecurities, the place many feel nervousness is in the bladder. I knew a women who would joke about needing to use the bathroom just before she got up on stage to speak. Oh no, not me, I was born with a mic in my hand. Someone else. But next to death, public speaking is a legit fear for most of the population.

So it should come as no surprise that if a child is more of the nervous nelly type, they may also have bedwetting challenges. Some may say it's because they are more heavy sleepers. Sure, Id buy that except our person's didn't cease until I applied Cypress over the bladder. This isn't isolated to children with bladder control challenges, my friends. I've watched tv, I've seen commercials... Also, I've been to a regular grocery store and see the products they sell. Perhaps Cypress over the bladder could calm the overactive stimulation and allow for better control? Just thinking out loud here....

In any case, sit with your Cypress today. Add 4-5 drops in your diffuser as you prepare for bed. Imagine if the whole world went to bed tonight feeling so incredibly secure and peaceful.

Onycha

Available only in the Ancient oils collection, Onycha is a rare treat. It has been used in more modern times for over 200 years as the Tincture f Benzoin as an hospital antiseptic. With the super strains of viruses pharma defenses are unable to touch such things so many hospitals are rediscovering the effectiveness of the tincture. Not that you're going to hear about this on mainstream media however. Hence, why we have this group- to tell you all the truths about healing.



WRITE THIS DOWN

In the modern specific uses for Onycha we see it used for stimulating renal output and for all many of intestinal situations. Well, for the emotional response of terror, guess where it is suggested those emotions are stored? Yes! In the area of the bladder and colon- specifically peritoneum!

Inhale for bronchitis, sinusitis, colds, coughing and sore throat. Excellent for speeding up wound healing and prevents infection.
