Historically, essential oils have been used to promote prayer, meditation, and in religious ceremonies. In ancient Egypt, priests used resins, balms, and oils from plants for religious purposes. The Vedas, a sacred book and collection of Indian hymns and texts, has many references to herb and fragrant materials. In the Old Testament of the Bible, a holy anointing oil was used to pour on the heads of the priests as well as used throughout the Tabernacle and on it’s contents. Oils are referenced many times throughout the Bible.
Essential oils vibrate at high frequencies and can be used to strengthen prayer and meditation and as preparation for bible study, devotional time, fasting, praise, and worship. When using your essential oils for this purpose, pray while applying and come forth with an attitude of expectancy. God will show up.
“The Lord is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth.” –Psalm 145:18
