Many stores now sell ‘essential oils’. It seems that they are now all the rage and in many products. But, buyer beware! Most of what is sold in retail storesas essential oils have been adulterated or even are completely synthetic. That means they may smell nice, but they will do nothing for your health and may even contribute to toxins building up in your body.
Medicinal herbs and essential oils, which are distilled essences of plant material, were used by priests and physicians thousands of years ago. Translations of ancient Egyptian Hieroglyphics and Chinese manuscripts show that these, along with foods, were mankind’s first medicine. There are over 150 references to ‘oils’ in the Bible. Oils like frankincense, myrrh, rosemary, spikenard, cinnamon, cedarwood, juniper, coriander, and others are mentioned in the Bible. Of the three gifts brought to the Christ Child, two of those were essential oils of frankincense and myrrh. Very valuable indeed.
Many of them were used for cleansing, some for embalming, others for healing, skin beauty, perfumes, and some of the resins burnt for prayer and meditation. Frankincense resins were so valued that it was traded as a precious commodity along the “Frankincense Trails” in the Middle East.
Modern science is now catching up with ancient wisdom and there exists a huge body of scientifically research documenting the many benefits to the body, including immune stimulating properties. Frankincense oil is now being used therapeutically in European Hospitals and doTERRA is working with many university research departments in studying the benefits of their essential oils.
