Essential Oils of the Holy Bible

Essential oils in the Holy Bible are mentioned as liquids (i.e. liquid myrrh), scented oil, incenses, perfumes, odors, aromas, sweet savors, fragrant, spices, oleo-gum-resins, anointing oil, and ointments. In Biblical times essential oils served for healing the sick, burial, embalming the dead, and food flavoring. Essential oils were used by early Christians.

When the Bible speaks of spices, they are in oil form for the reason that essential oils are extremely robust in flavor and aroma, along with their power to heal. Essential oils are more 75-100% more potent than dried herbs or fresh herbs. When the plant is dehydrated, it looses much of the healing properties, such as oxygen. Cells need oxygen to rejuvenate the body. Therapeutic-Grade essential oils have oxygenating molecules, ozone, negative ions, and frequency.

Essential oils and/or aromatic plants mentioned in the Bible are: Aloes-Sandalwood, Anise, Balm, Bay, Bdellium, Calamus, Cassia, Cedarwood, Cinnamon, Coriander, cumin, Cypress, Dill, Fir, Frankinscense, Galbanum, Henna-Camphire, Hyssop, Juniper, Mint-Peppermint, Mustard Seed, Myrrh, Myrtle, Onycha, Pine, Rose of Isaiah, Rose of Sharon, Rue, Saffron, Shittim-Acacia, Nard-Spikenared, Terebinth, and Wormwood.

Referring to plants; “…their fruit will be for food and their leaf thereof for medicine (Ezekiel 47:12)”.

God’s “original medicine” has been covered up by societal influences, and giants in the money-market industry. Only “serpent healthcare” forms of medicine (drugs and surgery) are allowed to be advertised and promoted on television.

When a serpent healthcare doctor tells you there is no cure for such a condition, what he is really saying is, there is no cure within their family circle of “serpent healthcare”! But outside their circle of drugs and surgery there ARE natural remedies – but of course they are not going to tell you that.


“Then the Lord said to Moses, Take the following fine spices: 500 shekels of liquid myrrh, half as much (that is, 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 30:22-25

It was Frankincense and Myrrh that was brought to the Christ child (baby Jesus at birth).

Anyone can receive a healing through prayer to God and/or through faith. And yes, as a Christian, we can receive healing in the Name of Jesus Christ. God gave us more than one method for healing. Essential oils do work in the very likeness of God, but essential oils are a creation of God and not God himself. A person can receive healing directly from God – The Creator. It is okay to still use herbs and essential oils, natural remedies, as a Christian, as long as you ALSO have a personal relationship with God-Jesus too. Nothing, no matter how well it works, in the nature of God, should be used as a substitute for having a personal relationship with God-Jesus; meaning, don’t use them as your only source of ‘god’!

As a Christian, it is not a sin to use natural remedies; it is not forbidden by God nor a command of God not to use them. In the early days (Leviticus 14:4), cedar wood and hyssop was used by priest in the ritual for dealing with leprosy (infectious skin disease) – by a command from God.

“John 12:3 (KJV) – Then Mary took a pound of ointment of spikenard, very costly, and anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped his feet with her hair: and the house was filled with the odour of the ointment.”  [Note: if herbs/essential oils were ungodly, Jesus would have forbidden it on Him! — Jesus permitted it.]
