Therapeutic Effects of the 12 Oils of Ancient Scripture
Considering there are 12 oils mentioned numerous times throughout the Holy Scriptures it is no coincidence that God has given these oil to mankind to sustain a healthy body. These oils alone address all the body systems and appear to be prophetic when considering the volatile times fast approaching God’s people. A brief synopsis of the oils will be presented to further educate those interested in taking responsibility for their own health.
ALOES / SANDALWOOD – (Santalum album)
"And there came also Nicodemus, which at the first came to Jesus by night, and brought a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about a hundred pound weight"
(John 19:39). Many botanists believe that aloes was derived from sandalwood, one of the oldest incenses known to man. Its 4,000-year history includes use as a carved wood as well as distillation for its sweet-, woody-, and fruity-scented oil. The great quantity of myrrh and aloes used in preparing Christ’s body for burial was indicative of respect.
Action: Sandalwood is high in sesquiterpenes that have been researched in Europe for their ability to stimulate the pineal gland and the limbic region of the brain. The pineal gland is responsible for releasing melatonin, a powerful antioxidant that enhances deep sleep. Sandalwood is similar to Frankincense oil in its support of nerves and circulation.
Indications: Bronchitis (chronic), herpes, cystitis, and skin tumors.
Uses: May help with cystitis and urinary tract infections. It may also be beneficial for acne, depression, pulmonary infections, menstrual problems, nervous tension, and skin infection. It may help dry or dehydrated skin.
Emotional Uses: May unlock emotional trauma fro DNA of cells, oxygenate the pineal and pituitary glands, thus improving attitude.
CASSIA – (Cinnamomum cassia)
"All thy garments smell of myrrh, and aloes, and cassia, out of the ivory palaces, whereby they have made thee glad" (Psalm 45:8). Two of the oldest known spices in the world are cinnamon and cassia. It was an ingredient in the holy anointing oil and the incense that was burned daily in the temple.
While its aroma is similar to cinnamon, cassia is chemically and physically quite different.
Action: Antibacterial, antiviral, and anti-fungal.
Traditional Uses: The British have used this oil specifically for flatulent dyspepsia or colic with nausea. In Chinese medicine it is used particularly for vascular disorders. Cassia oil is among the most antiseptic of essential oils.
CEDARWOOD – (Cedrus atlantica)
"Then the priest shall command to take for him who is to be cleansed two birds alive and clean and Cedarwood and scarlet material and hyssop."
(Leviticus14:4). The cedars of Lebanon were used to build Solomon’s Temple and Herod’s Temple where Christ taught. Cedar was an integral part of two biblical purification rituals – one for lepers and another for those who were impure from touching a dead body. Cedar was noted for its incorruptibility; and in ancient times, clothing was anointed with cedar to protect if from humidity.
Action: Mildly antiseptic, Cedarwood may be effective against tuberculosis, bronchitis, gonorrhea, urinary infections, and skin disorders such as acne and psoriasis. It can reduce hardening of the artery walls. It also may help stimulate the pineal gland, which releases melatonin, an antioxidant hormone associated with deep sleep.
Traditional Uses: Cedarwood may help with acne, anxiety, arthritis, congestion, coughs, cystitis, dandruff, psoriasis, respiratory system, sinusitis, skin diseases and fluid retention.
Emotional Uses: It is high in sesquiterpenes that can stimulate the limbic region of the brain (the center of our emotions). It is recognized for its calming and purifying effects.
CYPRESS – (Cupressus sempervirens)
"He hewest him down cedars, and taketh the cypress and the oak, which he strengthen for himself among the trees of the forest" (Isaiah 44:14). The cypress tree is renowned for its durability. The sturdy cypress doors of the St. Peter’s in Rome, for example, show no signs of decay, even after 1,200 years! The mighty cypress groves of Lebanon were described in the Apocryphal Book of Ecclesiasticus as trees "which groweth up to the clouds"
(50:10). Some Bible scholars believe that cypress may be the "gopher wood"
used to build Noah’s Ark.
Action: Improves circulation and supports the nerves and intestines.
Anti-infectious, antibacterial, anti-microbial (causative agent of tuberculosis), and strengthens blood of capillaries.
Traditional Indications: Arthritis, bronchitis, circulation, cramps, hemorrhoids, insomnia, intestinal parasites, menopausal problems, menstrual pin, pancreas insufficiencies, pulmonary infections, rheumatism, spasms, throat problems, varicose veins, and fluid retention.
Historical Use: This oil may be beneficial for asthma, strengthening blood capillary walls, reducing cellulite, circulatory system, strengthening connective tissue, coughs, edema, improving energy, gallbladder, bleeding gums, hemorrhaging, laryngitis, liver disorders, muscular cramps, nervous tension, nose bleeds, and ovarian cysts. It is outstanding when used in skin care, lessening scar tissue.
Emotional Use: Cypress influences, strengthens, and helps ease the feeling of loss. It creates a feeling of security, grounding, and helps heal emotional trauma.
FRANKINCENSE- (Olibanum-Boswellia carteri)
"Who is this that cometh out of the wilderness like pillars of smoke, perfumed with myrrh and frankincense, with all powders of the merchant?"
(Song of Solomon 3:6).
An ancient synonym for frankincense is "olibanum", derived from the Latin Olium libanum (oil from Lebanon). Because frankincense symbolizes divinity, it was one of the three gifts given to the Christ child. The temples of antiquity were fragrant with the aroma of burning frankincense. It was well known for its healing powers during the time of Christ. "Used to treat every conceivable ill known to man", frankincense was valued more than gold during the ancient times. Frankincense is now being researched and used therapeutically in European hospitals and is being investigated for its ability to improve human growth hormone production.
Action: Expectorant, anti-tumoral, immune-stimulant, anti-catarrhal, and anti-depressant.
Traditional Indications: Asthma, depression, and ulcers. Supports the immune system. It increases the activity of leukocytes in defense of the body against infection.
Historical Uses: This oil may help with allergies, bites (insect and snake), bronchitis, cancer, respiratory infections, diphtheria, headaches, hemorrhaging, herpes, high blood pressure, inflammation, stress, tonsillitis, typhoid, and warts.
GALBANUM – (Ferula gummosa)
"And the Lord said unto Moses, "take unto thee sweet spices, stacte, and onycha, and galbanum; these sweet spices with pure frankincense; of each there shall be a like weight" (Exodus 30:34). There is an interesting suggestion in the Jewish Talmud as to why this powerful, less-than-fragrant resin was used in the holy incense: "Every communal fast that does not include sinners of Israel is not a fast." This has been linked to the fact that incense included spices or perfumes with lovely fragrances, but was not complete without one spice, galbanum, with its earthy odor. Also during Biblical times this oil was used for its medicinal properties.
Action: Anti-infectious, anti-inflammatory, stimulant, supporting to the kidneys and menstruation, analgesic, light antispasmodic, and strengthening for the body.
Indications: Asthma, inflammation, poor circulation and wounds.
Historical Uses: May help with abscesses, acne, asthma, bronchitis, chronic coughs, cramps, cuts, indigestion, muscular aches and pains, nervous tension, rheumatism, scar tissue, stress, wrinkles, and wounds.
Hyssop – (Hyssopus officinalis)
"Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean; wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow" (Psalm 51:7). The hyssop plant was used during the exodus from Egypt to dab the Hebrews’ doorposts with lamb’s blood, protecting them from the plague of death. Hyssop may be the most difficult biblical plant to identify because so many possibilities have been suggested. However, because hyssop (along with cedar) was used in purification rituals, modern-day hyssop with the chemical constituent carvacrol, which has antibacterial properties, make it a likely choice.
Action: Anti-asthmatic, anti-catarrhal, anti-infectious, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, anti-parasitic, antiseptic, antispasmodic, antiviral, astringent, decongestant, diuretic, mucolytic, and sedative.
Traditional Indications: Arthritis, asthma, bruises, respiratory
infections, coughs, cuts, dermatitis, indigestion, fatigue, nervous tension, parasites (expelling worms), rheumatism, sore throats, viral infections, and wounds.
Historical Uses: This oil may help with colds and coughs, digestions,
fever, gout, regulating lipid metabolism, raising low blood pressure, clearing lungs, discharging mucus, strengthening and toning the nervous system, preventing scarring, and viral infections.
Emotional Uses: Hyssop may be beneficial for anxiety and may also aid concentration and alertness by stimulating and clearing the mind.
MYRRH – (Commiphora myrrha)
"I have perfumed my bed with myrrh, and aloes, and cinnamon" (Proverbs 7:17). Christ was given myrrh at His birth; and along with aloes, it was used in preparing His body for burial. Myrrh was included in the holy anointing oil and was well known to the ancient perfumers. From Ester 2:12, one learns that the candidates from which King Ahaseuerus was to pick his queen were prepared by anointing: "six month with oil of myrrh, and six months with sweet odours. The Arabian people of antiquity used myrrh for a variety of skin conditions.
Action: Anti-infectious, antiviral, parasitic (worms), hormone-like, anti-inflammatory, soothes skin conditions, anti-hyperthyroid, and supports immune system.
Traditional Indications: Bronchitis, diarrhea, dysentery, hyperthyroidism, stretch marks, thrush, ulcers, vaginal thrush and viral hepatitis.
Historical Uses: This oil may help asthma, athlete’s foot, candida, coughs, eczema, digestion, fungal infection, gingivitis, gum infections, hemorrhoids, mouth ulcers, ringworm, and sore throats, skin conditions (chapped and cracked), wounds, and wrinkles.
MYRTLE– (Myrtus communis)
"Go forth unto the mount, and fetch olive branches, and pine branches, and myrtle branches, and palm branches, and branches of thick trees, to make booths, as it is written" (Nehemiah 8:15). When the Jews came out of Babylonian captivity, Kin Nehemiah commanded that they gather branches from four trees, including myrtle. To the ancient Jews, myrtle was symbolic of peace and justice. One of the promises to Israel for the future is that "instead of the brier shall come up they myrtle tree" (Isaiah 55:13)
Action: Expectorant, anti-infectious, liver stimulant, prostate decongestant, light antispasmodic, hormone-like for the thyroid and ovary, and a tonic for the skin.
Traditional Indications: Bronchitis, coughs, hypothyroidism, insomnia, thyroid hormone-like effects, prostrate decongestant, respiratory tract ailments, sinus infection, tuberculosis, and ureter infections. Researched by Dr. Daniel Penoel, Myrtle has been found useful for normalizing hormonal imbalances of the thyroid and ovaries, as well as balancing the hypothyroid.
It has also been researched for its soothing effects on the respiratory system.
Historical Uses: Asthma, respiratory infections, cystitis, diarrhea, dysentery, dyspepsia (impaired digestion), flatulence, hemorrhoids, hormonal imbalances, support immune system, infections, infectious diseases, pulmonary disorders skin conditions (acne, blemishes, bruises, oily skin, psoriasis, etc.), and sinusitis. Use on children for chest complaints and coughs.
ONYCHA – (Styrax benzoin)
"And to the Lord said unto Moses, Take unto thee sweet spices, stacte, and onycha, and galbanum; these sweet spices with pure frankincense; of each shall there be a like weight." (Exodus 30:34). The great Jewish scholar Rashi said that onycha is a kind of root, while the Tulmud states it came from an annual plant. It is a possibility that styrax benzoin may be the plan source for onycha. Like frankincense and myrrh, benzoin is a resin.
Action: Anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, antiseptic, carminative, and expectorant.
Traditional Indications: Arthritis, gout, asthma, bronchitis and skin conditions.
Historical Uses: Poor circulation, rheumatism, flu, chills, colic, coughs, laryngitis, cuts, chapped skin, and inflamed and irritated skin conditions.
Emotional Uses: Traditionally known for its comforting and soothing properties for nervous tension and stress.
ROSE OF SHARON / CISTUS – (Labdanum – Cistus Ladanifer)
"I am the rose of Sharon, and the lily of the valley" (Song of Solomon 2:1).
In ancient times, the gum that exudes from this plant was collected from the hair of goats that had browsed among the bushes.
Cistus has been studied for its effect on cell regeneration.
Action: Anti-infectious, antiviral, antibacterial, powerful anti-hemorrhaging agent helps reduce inflammation.
Traditional Indications: Bronchitis, respiratory infections, urinary infections, wounds and wrinkles.
Historical Uses: Coughs, rhinitis, and may strengthen and support the
immune system (due to phenol action).
Emotional Uses: Cistus may affect the upper part of the brain. It may also help quiet the nerves and calm the insomniac.
SPIKENARD – (Nardostachys jatamansi)
"And Jesus being in Bethany, in the house of Simon the leper, as he sat at meat, there came a woman having an alabaster box of ointment of spikenard, very precious, and she broke the box, and poured the ointment on his head."
(Mark 14:3). Spikenard was transported to the Holy Land in sealed alabaster boxes all the way from the Himalayan Mountains. When distinguished guest came visiting, the master of the house showed honor by breaking open the spikenard and anointing the guest. The Hebrew and the Romans used spikenard in the burial of their dead. This is why Jesus said of the woman who poured the precious spikenard oil on Him, "She is come aforehand to anoint my body to the burying" (Mark 14:8).
Action: Antibacterial, anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, and skin tonic.
Traditional Indications: This oil is known for helping the treatment of allergic skin reactions.

Spiritual & Emotional Uses of Young Living's
12 Oils of Ancient Scripture Kit
Created by Daia Sun Alone (Judy DeRuvo) for the Anoint the Spirit Team June 2002
ALOES / SANDALWOOD - (santalum album) Sandalwood has been used in India for thousands of years as an enhancement to meditation and prayer. It quiets the mental chatter that can distract us in meditation. It allows the mind to move into the deepest states of meditation and connects us with the great cosmic prayer, the infinite meditation.
Sandalwood affects Chakra energy in so many different ways because it is a very complex oil with many different actions at the subtle level. One of its greatest virtues lies in linking the Kundalini energy at the Base Chakra with the Crown Chakra. It's scent invokes a feeling of exotic sensuality and spiritual wholeness at the same time - divine sensuality. Sandalwood aligns all the chakras and subtle bodies allowing a person to be totally in their body and learn to feel all the subtle energy around them.
Sandalwood helps to keep you grounded, close to your divine essence, helps through periods of fear, and allows you to surrender to divine will.
It helps to reprogram the brain and stimulates the pituitary and pineal glands. It is a builder of the entire endocrine system. It is a very high in substances that are similar to the male hormone (androgen). It is the regulator of the uterus.
Sesquiterpene contents is 90%. Sesquiterpines have the ability to pull oxygen out of food and air. Thus, they increase oxygen in the body as well as the brain. Increased oxygen to the brain stimulates the pineal and pituitary glands and the amygdala.
Sandalwood is a cooling oil - Cools the brain in meditation Reprograms DNA level - 3rd Eye for reprogramming
It is believed that aloes of the Bible may have been fragrant sandalwood, a spice accessible to the residents of ancient Palestine.
"And there came also Nicodemus, which at the first came to Jesus by night, and brought a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about an hundred pound weight."
CASSIA - (cinnamomum cassia) Similar to Cinnamon but it smells sweeter and more pleasant. It enhances circulation and supports the heart and empowers the will. It also supports the sacral chakra, especially during menopause.
It is a good oil to use if you wake up in the morning and feel sluggish.
Cassia energetically works to free the memories of enslavement held deep in the unconscious. It also assists us in remembering the reasons for a rebellious nature and distaste for authority that derive from lifetimes of begin a slave, indentured servant, or powerless.
Cassia has 90% phenol propenoids. Phenol propenoids increase frequency, which increase spirituality. Cassia was a key ingredient in temple incense in ancient times. (Other oils with phenol propenoids are clove 90%, basil 75%, cinnamon 73%, nutmeg 75%.)
According to Dr. Young, a recent study shows that extracts of this herb can stimulate T-lymphocyte activity and immuno-globulin production by B cells, which are key elements of immune function.
Caution - Cassia oil can be irritating to the skin. Use on the bottom of the feet.
Places one in instant meditative state . use on 3rd Eye for clear vision.
Use in the etheric over chakras in healing.
Burns off - clears out buildups - clears receptor sites to experience healing energies.
It helps for empowerment.
It strengthens the immune system.
* Use in very small amounts. *
Cassia was a key ingredient in the temple incense.
"All thy garments smell of myrrh, and aloes, and cassia, out of the ivory palaces, whereby they have made thee glad." (Psalms 45:8)
CEDARWOOD- (cedrus atlantica) Steadiness and balance is the message of the spirit of Cedarwood. It is the spirit of integrity, of stability, of solidarity in all things. It has qualities that are often needed when the spirit is weakened by too much . loving too hard and being unable to forgive. It encourages the strength we need to continue on our pathway, and urges us to hold fast to our dreams, helping bring our hopes to reality.
Inhaling Cedarwood oil relaxes and over-analytical mind. Use Cedarwood oil before and after business meetings to generate greater clarity, to quickly perceive the core issue or to get to the point. Cedarwood has a purifying energy that helps to release emotional toxins lodged in the subtle bodies.
Cedarwood oil aligns the heart chakra of the mental body to the physical and allows the experience of just being. Cedarwood oil stimulates memories of feeling true spiritual love and generates feelings of being totally secure and protected by that love.
Cedarwood has been used since time immemorial in civilizations as diverse as Egypt and Tibet. It is still actively used in Tibetan medicine and as a meditation aid by Tibetan Buddhists and others. It is thought to enhance spirituality and strengthen our connection with the Divine. Cedarwood was used in the construction of temples to symbolize this.
Cedarwood oil is a powerful mucolytic (i.e. it breaks up catarrh) and we can see parallels in its subtle uses: helping us to cut through the "mental catarrh" that can clog our minds just as surely as the physical variety clogs our noses.
The "Cedar" which Native American Indians use in purification ceremonies 'smudging' is in fact a form of Juniper.
Sesquiterpene contents is 98%.
It can be used as an underarm deodorant and has a scent that men like.
This oil is most effective with ADD children . helps stabilize Beta/Theta waves.
From the mighty "Cedars of Lebanon" came the fragrant and long-lasting wood used to build Solomon's temple.
"And he spoke of trees, from the cedar tree that is in Lebanon even unto the hyssop that springeth out of the wall." (1 Kings 4:33)
CYPRESS - (cupressus sempervirens) Cypress oils is helpful in times of transition such as career changes, moving homes, menopause and major spiritual decisions. Cypress also helps with painful transitions such as bereavement or the ending of close relationships. Cypress has frequencies that are in transition between the physical and spiritual (etheric plane), which is why it can be used to give strength and comfort at the time of death.
Cypress helps reestablish the ability to flow with life without the anxiety of deciding what the next step is or how it will unfold. It offers strength and energetic protection to those who are vulnerable and insecure or have lost their purpose. It can be used to move on from a situation.
Using Cypress oil on the spleen point under the left rib cage clears blockages in energy flow and supports better assimilation of food. Cypress oil massaged into the abdominal and colon area releases stagnant energy beliefs in that area.
Energetically, Cypress oil disconnects spleen energy attachments. Cords and attachments are created between people through the over-empathizing. This is often the case for healers and will deplete the healer's energy. Also, many emotional caretakers are empathetic. Making people feel better is all they know how to do, not realizing the karmic implications of their actions.
Many people are unconscious empathic receivers and they take on other people's realities and ailments without realizing what they are doing.
Empaths must make a conscious effort to practice Divine Right Use of empathy. When Divine Right Use is in effect, empathic abilities can provide very important diagnostic information about the energy denied or repressed in the unconscious mind or emotional body. Divine Right Use employs appropriate empathizing energy and stays connected only as long as needed for interpreting information and then it consciously fully disengages. It is up to the individual needing healing to decide how or how not to act upon the knowledge an empath imparts. This keeps the empathic receiver from forming karmic bonds.
Cypress is good for anything in access. It is very grounding. It is a balancer of the female system and is often combined with clary sage for hot flashes and is used to reduce or inhibit ovarian cysts.
This is good for aiding with the natural flow of things.
Good with the transition of dying and with grieving.
This oil is extracted from the cypress tree, which has wood so durable that the cypress doors of St. Peter's in Rome who no sign of decay even after 1,200 years.
"He hewethe him down cedars, and taketh the cypress and the oak, which he strengtheneth for himself among the trees of the forest." (Isaiah 44:14)
FRANKINCENSE - (boswellia carteri). Sometimes called olibanum. This sweet protector of the heavens operates far beyond the auric field, in the light realms. It is adaptogenic - it will adapt to a person's spiritual state of being. Holding the wisdom of the ages, it waits for what is asked of it, and can do all that may be required. If it encounters malevolent energies attached to a person, it has the authority and power to assist in the removal of all that is unwanted.
In the cases of spiritual shock or loss, when the spirit can step out of the body, frankincense can gently ease us back to our earthly home.
Frankincense helps each of us connect to that part of ourselves, which is eternal and divine. It is one of the most ancient of the incenses, having been in use for at least 3,000 years.
Frankincense increases oxygenation, which increases the life force in the physical body. Frankincense has the ability to deepen and slow the breath and this helps to bring body and mind into a meditative state. It helps break ties with the past, especially when they block personal growth. Use it in baths with the conscious intention of "washing away" any old ties, which feel like a hindrance.
It is an important oil for anointing the dying and keeping the soul connected to its Divine presence. It is an excellent for the 6th Chakra, assisting in altering perception of truth and promoting clairvoyance. The crown and heart chakras also expand, as new realities are perceived. The light body enlarges as new realities and dimensions are experienced.
Frankincense has a sesquiterpene level of 8-11%.
It can help with memory.
It opens the 3rd Eye for connection.
It can be used for tumors . along with Lavender and BrainPower.
Helps clear away fogs.
The Hebrew word for frankincense, levonah (sometimes translated as "incense"), is in the Bible 22 times.
"Who is this that cometh out of the wilderness like pillars of smoke, perfumed with myrrh and frankincense with all powders of the merchant?"
(Song of Solomon 3:6)
GALBANUM - (ferula gummosa) This oil allows for the shedding of old ideas and outdated behavior and attitudes, resulting in total surrender to the Creator. It sheds light on life's purpose and on the inner self. This oil may unveil sadness, wrongdoing, untruthfulness and crimes against the soul.
It communicates with the deeper layers of self, allowing for gradual unfolding of truth. It is used to balance extreme or intense emotions.
Galbanum has a sesquiterpene level of 11%. This oil is the main ingredient in the blend "Gathering" because it aligns the brain with a person's spiritual purpose. Galbanum was Mose's favourite oil.
Testimonial by N.H. Reiki practitioner and Massage Therapist: "I put Galbanum on my hands when I was doing a long distance Reiki session. I became very aware of the physical presence of the person I was working on.
I could feel her liver, spleen and lungs very clearly, as if the person was actually in the room with me. This has happened on a few different occasions. Something about Galbanum oil is very deep and very ancient."
It helps to maintain focus.
It pulls energies together.
It maintains group consciousness.
It is surrendering oil.
This oil has a pungent, balsamic odor.
"And the Lord said unto Moses, Take unto thee sweet spices, stacte, and onycha, and galbanum; these sweet spices with pure frankincense: of each there shall be a like weight." (Exodus 30:34)
HYSSOP - (hyssopus officinalis) Hyssop has a very long history as a cleansing herb. Both the Egyptians and the Hebrews used it. Use it to cleanse any area in which you are planning to meditate, pray or give a healing. Purging old beliefs that do not serve spiritual growth calms the internal struggle of conflicting realities and the emotional, mental, physical and etheric bodies begin to release the density of fear. Hyssop clears the density around the aura caused by mental chatter.
Hyssop is a protective herb of the heavens. It is touched with the love and protection of the divine.
Hyssop oil initiates Divine self-acceptance and attracts the gaiety and mirth that are lost when carrying the burdens of guilt and duty. Hyssop expands lung energy by releasing guilt. Energetically Hyssop oil allows discovery of intense fears held in the unconscious mind by releasing stress held in the nervous system and allowing realization of how fears have constricted nerves over time. Hyssop teaches you to be gentler with Self and not be so stern and rigid. It lessens the drive behind convictions and permits the energy to ease into relaxation. This is a good oil for "Type A personalities, as it leads them to understanding they are the cause of their own internal pressure. When they comprehend the root of their need to be perfect, self-acceptance and compassionate tolerance are stimulated."
Hyssop helps you comprehend that errors are part of learning the process and there are no mistakes. Errors are recognized as true blessings in the perfection of Divine Right Timing.
Once we learn from "mistakes", we alter the energy and turn this to a positive learning experience.
Add Hyssop oil to a spray water bottle to clear a room of charged emotion or depression. It also transmutes dense thought forms that are vibrating in a room.
Rubbing Hyssop oil on the shoulders helps reduce the tension from carrying emotional burdens. Using Hyssop on the lung reflex points of the hands and feet helps break up congestion produced by inwardly grieving. Massaging with deep pressure into the colon reflex points of the hands and feet helps release stagnated energy from the colon and purges toxins from the physical body.
Caution - People with epilepsy or high blood pressure should consult a health care professional before using hyssop oil.
It helps to rid of past conditionings.
It clears dense thought forms.
It clears the aura and energy fields.
It clears inward grieving.
It breaks up blockages from the heart and lower chakras up to the throat to clear heart to throat.
In 1745 one writer suggested 18 different plants for the biblical hyssop.
While the exact variety may not be known, an antiseptic or cleansing property is suggested because it was employed in many purification rites.
"Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow." (Psalms 51:7)
MYRRH - (commiphora myrrha) Myrrh oil helps a person disengage from the mass consciousness conditioning. Social norms drain a person's spontaneous energy, obstructing the joy of being in the moment. Extended use of Myrrh oil empowers a person to develop their norms guided by Source.
Using Myrrh helps with issues of trust. Intent coupled with the oils'
gentle energy encourages looking at their fears that created the mistrust, and enable a person to admit to their loss of faith. Once resistance is acknowledged, trust in Self can begin rebuilding. Constraining emotions causes a very dense and weary feeling. People believe that denying heart feelings protects them but it only achieves keeping them in a state of separation and furthers the spell of illusion. These denied emotions create walls of armour around the aura, which block the physical body's ability to receive replenishing Pranic energy. Dense walls around the aura make it feel uncomfortable to be in the body. Myrrh energy generates a feeling of being enveloped in a shield of love that reflects all harmful influences and lets the heart stay open.
Massage the neck with Myrrh oil to reduce the need for control and release issues of not trusting.
Myrrh goes back at least 4,000 years. Use it as a meditational aid and before any healing session. It strengthens the Base Chakra. Myrrh is particularly valuable for people who feel "stuck" emotionally or spiritually and wants to move forward in their lives.
Myrrh is used to maintain and support the state of grace. It is good for people who are afraid to speak up about their emotions. The oil creates confidence and awareness. It moves fluids and so it is good for weight loss. Its centering properties make it an excellent inhalation for compulsive eaters, in part because it connects them with the real issues and does not allow them to hide behind their food.
This oil helps us to realize that we need to let go of our wounds, forgive and move forward. Energetically it helps overcome the martyr's burden of suffering and sorrow. It is excellent oil for the healer who carries the pain of those she works to heal. This fragrance enables the letting go of the need to stand up for the just against the unjust.
Myrrh has a sesquiterpene level of 62%.
Good for compulsive eaters. It moves fluids in the body.
In the Bible, when Esther was being prepared for marriage . Aloe, Cassia, Myrrh and Sandalwood were blended and massaged into her body every day for 30 days prior to the ceremony.
Myrrh was used in burial and was highly regarded by David and Solomon. It was one of the ingredients of the holy anointing oil.
"I have perfumed my bed with myrrh, and aloes and cinnamon." (Proverbs 7:17)
MYRTLE - (myrtus communis). The fragrance of myrtle allows entrance to the pure and absolute, where ego has no entrance, where all is One and One becomes all. Its spirit is truth, forgiveness and Divine love that embraces all living beings. Myrtle oil balances the inner male and female traits and achieves harmony by resolving internal conflict and confusion. In ancient times, the Myrtle tree embodied the Sumerian Mother of Heaven, Marienna.
The Goddess Aphrodite also was represented by this tree. Myrtle oil helps us understand the impermanent nature of matter. Once we understand this, it resolves the conflict between the Soul's immortality and the personality's impatience.
This oil is helpful with allergies because it helps us gain insight into the something or someone that we are irritated with.
Myrtle has been researched by Dr. Penoel for normalizing hormonal imbalances of the thyroid and ovaries. It balances hypothyroidism. It is also a liver stimulant and may release anger.
Represents Divine feminine energy.
The Myrtle Tree is related to the Mother of Heaven.
Releases anger that is withheld in the liver.
Myrtle branches are still used by the Jews for the Feast of Tabernacles.
"Go forth unto the mount, and fetch olive branches, and pine branches, and myrtle branches, and palm branches, and branches of thick trees, to make booths, as it is written." (Nehemiah 8:15)
ONYCHA (Styrax Benzoin) - (styrax benzoin) No matter what touches the spirit, the soul must be allowed to speak, to be able to penetrate to the core of being. This resin is the holder of the energies and fire of sunlight. It opens the heart and mind to receive gifts that have been denied. It allows the spirit to receive from the soul, in feeling, in knowing, in just being.
Onycha can be a pathway to understanding when all is confusion. It can assist in making choices with the heart. It can help guide us home to the inner sanctum of the soul.
Onycha tells us not to dismiss things that are difficult, but to hear the messages of the soul and be guided by them. It gives us peace and understanding on the pathway to inner enlightenment. It is a good oil for Spiritual Protection.
Patricia Davis, "I use Benzoin (onycha) to help people who are sad and lonely, depressed or anxious . We might perhaps see here an echo of it's former use to 'cast out devils', for what are the devils of our time, if not such psychological states as these."
Onycha is a great comforter and acts like a shield against outside events and disturbances. It is beneficial to an irritated nervous system and balances the hormonal system.
Onycha was an ingredient in the holy anointing oil.
And the Lord said unto Moses, Take unto thee sweet spices, stacte, and onycha, and galbanum; these sweet spices with pure frankincense: of each there shall be a like weight." (Exodus 30:34)
ROSE OF SHARON / CISTUS - (cistus ladanifer), also called Rock Rose or labdanum. This is a fragrance of prophecy, visions and all quests for truth. Rose of Sharon cannot provide answers, nor can it speak, but it stimulates the eternal knowledge that is intrinsic to all human beings.
Rose of Sharon brings awareness that the universal spirit can be glimpsed and absorbed into our very being, although the complete merging with God must remain just out of reach while we fulfill our role here on earth.
Good for auto-immune . use along the spine.
Vision of Truth . Internal Knowledge.
This beautiful rose has a soft honey-like scent and may be the small shrubby tree called the rose of Sharon.
"I am the rose of Sharon, and the lily of the valley." (Song of Solomon 2:1)
SPIKENARD - (nardostachys jatamansi) Known as Jatamansi in India. It is one of the best oils for calming the nerves. It is grounding and settles an out-of-balance mind. It is post-digestive oil in India. (One drop taken near the end of the meal calms the stomach.) It is a stimulant to the male hormonal system brings courage and power. It helps people feel in charge of their lives.
In preparation for the departure of the spirit to the heavens, Spikenard allows us to release our fears of the unknown and have the courage to step forward. Spikenard helps to reconcile all that has happened to us in this lifetime upon the earth, and to make peace with those who have hurt us. It is a fragrance of forgiveness. Its purpose is to release the past from the shackles of our own making, those that relentlessly bind us to repeating actions that affect the freedom of the Spirit.
This is the oil that Mary Magdeline broke the flask over Jesus. The disciples weren't happy with her actions, as the oil was very costly. Jesus told them the Mary was in the right and was just in her actions. There is controversy as to why she did this . perhaps it was to prepare him for his coming death, to help him to forgive all the unjust that had been done to him . perhaps it was to give him the courage to complete the life of which he knew the ending.
Very expensive oil, spikenard was sealed in alabaster boxes.
"And [Jesus] being in Bethany; in the house of Simon the leper; as he sat at meat, there came a woman having an alabaster box of ointment of spikenard, very precious, and she brake the box, and poured it on his head." (Mark 14:3)
Sesquiterpenes - This constituent mentioned in many of these oils in something that is shown to be able to pass the Blood Brain Barrier. When this is achieved, through the olfactory it passed through a hardened cellular wall to heal at the cellular/DNA level.
Sesquiterpenes can actually bypass and heal through de-programming of cellular and/or spiritual memory.
Many oils hold a constituent, mono-terpines. These oils help to re-program after de-programming has taken place. Citrus oils, lavender, the blend "Dream Catcher" are oils that contain the mono-terpines.
When you feel the need to "get out of your mind" to be able to touch spiritual areas . apply the oils on the temples and across the forehead, going from the left temple to the right.
When preparing for a meeting and needing to be more mental, apply the oils in the opposite direction . temples and across the forehead . going from the right temple to the left.

Applying the Feelings Kit in Your Daily Life
by David Stewart
(Based primarily on notes taken on Gary Young’s talk September 19, 2008, at the first Young Living European Convention, Vienna, Austria)
It has been said that when there is a conflict between reason and feeling, human beings will always side with feeling. According to Gary Young, “99% of life’s decisions are made from feelings.” Therefore, if you want your life to be guided by good decisions that lead to health, happiness, and fulfillment, you need to be aware of and in control of your present feelings and to learn how to release the repressed emotions of the past.
Most of our feelings from day to day are not responses to current happenings. They originate from the programming in cellular memory that was imprinted by the emotional experiences of our past that we were unable to understand, process, and resolve at the time.
These forgotten traumatic experiences function as live programming in our bodies, affecting every aspect of our lives and particularly in the area of how we make decisions. When our thoughts are limited by fears, lack of self-worth, and not feeling good enough for more or better, we make decisions that limit our success. Limited thinking leads to limited decisions that lead to a limited life far short of the God-given potential we actually possess.
By focusing on fixing your feelings, you can fix most aspects of your life--physical, mental, and spiritual. Essential oils are perfect vehicles to help you in this task because their molecules pass directly to the emotional brain and can bring us into contact with the issues we have long forgotten and enable us to deal with them and resolve them once and for all. When we clear our emotional baggage, we clear the way to manifest our true and highest potential.
According to Gary Young, “Thought equals frequency. Essential oils absorb our thoughts. They are registered in the oils as intent. Intent is directed energy. When you apply an intent-energized oil on your feet they can saturate all of your cells within 60 seconds, stimulating creative thinking and pushing negative energy out of the cells, thus increasing the frequencies of the cells throughout the body. In that uplifted state you can create a new desire to be better tomorrow. You have no limitations but those you choose to accept.”
Gary says, “Use the Feelings Kit. Apply feeling oils before work and every night before bed. Do this for 30 days and you will change your life.”
The Feelings Kit, is available in a modified version. It contains six oil blends: Valor, Harmony, Forgiveness, Release, Present Time, and Inner Child. Here is how Gary instructed us to use them at the Vienna Convention:
Put Valor Oil on the soles of both feet at nighttime along with Highest Potential Blend. These blends are effective to erase limited thinking. Valor balances and equalizes the body’s energies thereby increasing oxygen intake to the pineal glandthe seat of our higher intelligence and intuitive faculties. You will wake up in the morning more self assured and more alive to start the day.
Massage one drop of Harmony Oil on each of the energy center points of your body. There are seven of them along the spine: Coccyx, Sacrum, Lumbar, Dorsal (heart), Cervical (where neck meets shoulders), and Medulla (hollow place at center base of skull), and Pineal (center of forehead). You can also massage Harmony on the crown of the head. Harmony balances the parasympathetic and sympathetic nervous systems which, in turn, gives us progressive creativity and feelings of confidence. “The biggest sin is not having confidence in yourself,” says Gary, “He who lacks confidence lacks life.”
Apply Forgiveness Oil around the navel with the right hand going clockwise several times and think of situations where you need to forgive yourself or others. We beat up on ourselves, but everyone makes mistakes. Yet we struggle to forgive our own mistakes and those of others. Unforgiveness is one of the most common roots of physical, mental, and spiritual disease. Unforgiveness does not make the offending party sick. It makes us sick. Forgiveness is for our own benefit. It is accomplished in five steps. (1) Forgive yourself for allowing the person to affect your health and happiness. (2) Forgive the other person for any harm he or she may have caused you. (This need not be done directly with the person being forgiven, but is an inner adjustment on your part.) (3) Give the other person permission to forgive you. (4) See the good in the situation. (5) Be thankful for the experience and the lesson it taught you. Inhale and apply Forgiveness Oil while going through these steps and repeat as often as necessary toclear the feelings of unforgiveness.
Negative energy goes into the blood and then into the liver for cleansing where the toxins can remain trapped. Thus, the liver becomes a storage place for anger, resentment, bitterness, hatred, jealousy, envy, addictions, and a host of destructive feelings. Apply a few drops of Release Oil on your tongue to release the poisons of stored emotions from the liver. Rub Release over the liver area. Drink lots of pure water and do a liver cleanse.
When we live in the past or dwell on the future, we are not being productive in the present. Energize three drops of Present Time by making clockwise circles on the oil in the palm of your hand and then apply it to your thymus (the gland just under your sternum or breastbone). Besides keeping you focused on the tasks of today, this can also help you financially by increasing your abundance consciousness in the present.
“When you are a child all things are possible. There are no limitations,” says Gary Young. “When you find your inner child, you have found your true self. The child in you is your creativity.” Apply one drop of Inner Child onto the pad of your thumb and then place your thumb onto the roof of your mouth. This opens the cranial sutures and stimulates the pineal, pituitary, and other organs of the emotional brain that occupy the space just above the roof of your mouth. Walking backwards while you have your thumb in your mouth looks stupid but it changes the rotation in the pelvis, elongating the spine, and decompressing the discs in your back. Thus, you can clear the nerve channels for energy to flow smoothly throughout your brain and body.
In conclusion, Gary said, “Use the Feelings Kit morning and night for 30 days. You will feel enthusiastic. Your life will be full of excitement. And people will be drawn to you like a magnet.”

The Kit contains three single oils: Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia), Lemon (Citrus limon) and Peppermint (Mentha piperita), and four oil blends: Joy, PanAway, Peace & Calming and Purification. All single oils may be used as dietary supplements. All of the oils may by diffused. The diffuser from YLEO is a special air pump that is custom designed to disperse the oils in a microfiber vapor. This allows the oils to stay suspended in the air to reduce bacteria, fungi and mold. It also freshens the air with natural fragrances, eliminating the need for synthetic, harmful air fresheners. The diffuser disperses the oils without heat, which could render the essential oils less effective.
All of the oils can be applied to the Vita Flex points on the feet, added to bath water mixed with YLEO's Bath Gel Base, applied topically or used with body and foot massage.
GUIDELINES FOR THE SAFE USE OF YOUNG LIVING ESSENTIAL OILS:
1. Always keep a bottle of V-6 Vegetable Mixing Oil, Massage Oil Base or any pure vegetable oil handy when using essential oils. Vegetable oils dilute essential oils if they cause discomfort or skin irritation.
2. Keep bottles of essential oils tightly closed and store them in a cool location away from light. If stored properly, essential oils will maintain their potency for many years.
3. Keep essential oils out of reach of children. Treat them as you would any product for therapeutic use.
4. Do not use essential oils rich in menthol (such as peppermint) on the throat or neck area of children under 30 months of age.
5. Direct sunlight and essential oils. Lemon, bergamot, orange, grapefruit, tangerine, White Angelica and other citrus oils may cause a rash or darker pigmentation if applied to skin exposed to direct sunlight or UV rays within 3 to 4 days of use.
6. Keep essential oils away from eye area and do not put into ears. Do not handle contact lenses or rub eyes with essential oils on fingers. Oils with high phenol content: oregano, helichrysum, cinnamon, thyme, clove. Lemongrass, bergamot, Thieves and ImmuPower may damage contacts and irritate eyes.
7. Pregnant women should consult their health care professional before using essential oils containing constituents with hormone-like activity, such as clary sage, sage, Idaho tansy, juniper and fennel.
8. Epileptics and those with high blood pressure should consult their health care professional before using essential oils. Avoid hyssop, fennel and Idaho tansy oils.
9. People with allergies should test a small amount of oil on a small area of sensitive skin, such as the inside of the arm, before applying the oil on other areas. The bottom of the feet is one of the safest, most effective places to use essential oils.
10. Before taking GRAS (Generally Regarded as Safe) essential oils internally, always dilute with an oil-soluble liquid like honey, olive oil or soy milk.
11. Do not add undiluted essential oils directly to bath water. Use Bath Gel Base as a dispersing agent for oils in the bath.
