The Oils of Ancient Scripture™

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.
