Ancient cultures such as the Egyptians, Persians, Romans, and Israelites have all been documented as proponents of essential oils, but did you know that we can also trace certain essential oils to the Bible itself? Our Oils of Ancient Scripture set contains 10 of these oils, each with modern benefits that you can use in your own home. Always check the essential oil’s label for usage instructions before application.

  • Terry Call

    2 questions: How do you pronounce Onycha? & why isn’t Cassia sold seperately?

    • Young Living

      Hi Terry, Onycha is pronounced \ˈänə̇kə\. Cassia is only available in the Ancient Scripture Collection. We do not have specific information available to provide for why we do not offer this oil individually; however, it is typically due to a lack of demand or insufficient supply that meets our high-quality standards. Thanks for stopping by!

  • Kari Hartman

    Limiting my choice to just one is rough, as I’d like the effects of all of them. But if I’m only to choose one, Myrtle would be that one. Frankincense has been my longstanding favorite, though.

  • They all sound wonderful, but if I had to choose just one it would be myrtle. Thank you for the article!

  • Kim

    I would love slides that go w the new kit- if anyone had any.

  • Kendra D Watts

    Just ordered this for F R E E today!!

  • Debra B Arpe

    I am teaching Oils of Ancient Scripture Classes in Texas, I can be reached at debraarpe@yahoo.com. for private classes. Frankincense is my favorite of these oils.

  • Vee

    I have had my kit for some time but it has 12 oils in it–Does the new kit only have 10 oils in it???

    • Young Living

      Hi Vee, You are correct Spikenard and Galbanum are no longer available with no prospective return date. The availability of the products has diminished because we are in the process of performing a supply chain assessment of the oils at this time. We greatly appreciate your understanding as we work to ensure that our supply chain complies with Young Living’s standard of 100% compliance and superior quality.

  • This is so awesome thank you. I love here in Utah and many church organizations have been hiring me to teach my class on Healing Oils of the Bible. This is such a great resource for me to make as a handout. Wow! came at such a great time

  • Leslie Hancock

    What happened to Galbanum essential oil? It used to be part of the Ancient Oils collection. Is it not being made any longer? Will it ever be available again? I use it when I meditate and I would miss it if we can not get it anymore. Is there a good substitute for it?

    • Young Living

      Galbanum is currently unavailable with no prospective return date. The availability of the product has diminished because we are in the process of performing a supply chain assessment of Galbanum at this time. It was also removed from the Oils of Ancient Scripture Collection. We greatly appreciate your understanding as we work to ensure that our supply chain complies with Young Living’s standard of 100% compliance and superior quality. Recommended Alternatives:
      Elemi, Frankincense, Helichrysum, Myrrh, Palo Santo, Sacred Frankincense

  • Kleo K

    Myrtle. Why? It’s that kick that I need to get me moving. Maybe it’s that kick we all need to get moving.

    Rose of Sharon. Why? I like honey and beeswax scents. I add beeswax to most of my homemade cremes now and to all of my lip balms. The therapeutic effect is out
    of this world when combined with the YL oils and other natural ingredients.

    Myrrh. Why? This is an essential oil no home should be without. I wait for the day that I will be able to afford to purchase this oil among oils. I have a diluted roller ball sample from a friend. It’s a respected and loved oil that takes you on that journey of journeys….

  • Emilie

    Bring back Spikenard! Oh how I miss it!
