Sacred Anointing Oils

To anoint with oil is one of man’s oldest healing techniques, and one of the most beautiful gestures you can give, for Anointing is an act of blessing oneself or another, to consecrate or “make sacred”.

In most ancient traditions the practice of anointing was performed to consecrate kings or other high standing dignitaries for public and/or spiritual office. Hindus and Buddhists also anointed statues of holy deities, Egyptians anointed the dead, while Christians and Jews sometimes anointed for medicinal and social purposes.

From butter, sweet smelling flower preparations, ash, milk, water and oils, a variety of materials were used. Today scented anointing oils are usually applied to your wrist, neck, temples or hair to enhance and celebrate that special moment.

Blended from essential oils specifically selected to raise your vibration and align you with your sacred self, our precious Anointing Oils will enhance your meditations, prayers, healing sessions, or group activities and help you raise your consciousness in the new millennium.
