The practice of anointing, or blessing, with oil dates back some 5,000 years to the coronation ceremonies of Mesopotamian and Egyptian royalty. Soon after, evidence arises of it's use by the priest-class to consecrate temples and cast out spirits. In an arid climate where daily washing is not always practical, the astringent, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-microbial properties of anointing oil's key ingredients were invaluable, and must have seemed unearthly. It is no accident that frankincense and myrrh, for example, were used on infants whose parents could afford such kingly oils.

 

Our signature blend was adopted from several of the oldest recipes available. Aside from the uses listed above, it's also great for meditation and/or stimulating relaxation. Traditionally 1-2 drops at the crown is all that is needed. One may also anoint along the chakras, but as this is a powerful oil, use along the extremities (arms, legs, hands and feet) should be avoided.
