Essential Oil Saturdays#5 - Biblical History: Holy Anointing Oil
This is the fifth post in my series on Essential Oils.  Today we are focusing on "Essential Oil History" and specifically "Biblical Holy Anointing Oil."
There are hundreds of references in the Bible about incense, oils, aromatics &/or ointments.  Historically, essential oils were used not just as perfume but mainly for anointing and in so doing either for healing or for sacred purposes.
Today we are going to focus on the Holy Anointing Oil that was give to Moses in Exodus:
"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.  Then use it to anoint the tent of meeting, the ark of the covenant law, the table and all its articles, the lampstand and its accessories, the altar of incense, the altar of burnt offering and all its utensils, and the basin with its stand.  You shall consecrate them so they will be most holy, and whatever touches them will be holy.  Anoint Aaron and his sons and consecrate them so they may serve me as priests.  Say to the Israelites, this is to be my sacred anointing oil for the generations to come.' "  Exodus 30:22-31

"Five hundred shekels" is equivalent to 1 gallon in modern terms and a "hin" is about 1.25 gallons.  Most of the prayer/baptism/anointing oils that can be purchased today still contain many of these ingredients like: myrrh and cinnamon.
