Oils of the Bible

 

 Essential oils have been used for thousands of years throughout the world. This short study was done to show the reader that essential oils were used on a regular bases in Biblical times and are designed by the Creator to be used for man’s benefit. There are books that delve deeper into the subject and by no means is this an exhaustive study, but it will give you an idea of some of the uses for Essential oils not only then, but for today too.

In my opinion, every household and church in the world (this means you too) should have essential oils on hand along with essential oil infused products that are all natural by Young Living Essential oils, of whom I am a proud  independent distributor. My family and I have been using them for years to help keep us healthy.

After reading over this study, if you would like to buy essential oils or essential oil infused products (Such as household cleaners, personal care, pet care, etc) you can purchase them online or by phone. The contact information is found at the bottom of this page.

It is my sincere hope that you will incorporate essential oils into your everyday life style,
