FORTIFY Holy Anointing Oil 10ml
“Then you shall take the anointing oil and pour it on his head and anoint him.”~Exodus 29:7~ This gentle scented but powerful blend of oils that was carefully put together was made with the purest of oils that was prayed over, purified and blessed! Each oil was handpicked with purpose for cleansing, purification, beauty, healing, for worshiping, praising, traveling, and praying. Olive Oil in the Bible is mentioned several times as the oil used for lighting lamps (Leviticus 24:2; Exodus 27:20). Olive oil was also used for anointing oil (Exodus 30:23–25) and as part of the grain offerings (Leviticus 2:1–10).
Kings were anointed with olive oil as a sign that they were chosen by God to rule (1 Samuel 16:1). As an important ingredient in the recipe for anointing oil, olive oil was used to sanctify priests (Exodus 29:7), the tabernacle, and all its furnishings (Exodus 40:9). I purposely chose this bottle with a gold top because not only was gold given to Jesus at the time when he was a little child as one of his gifts BUT gold represented Jesus’ kingship! I added Frankincense to symbolize his role as a priest. Frankincense represents Jesus' deity. In the Old Testament, frankincense was traditionally burned in the temple as an offering to God.
Myrrh dates back to Exodus when the Israelites would use myrrh as a main ingredient in holy anointing oil (Exodus 30:23). It had two main uses, perfume (Esther 2:12) and embalming (John 19:39). I purposely added Myrrh more so for the remembrance of what Jesus Christ came here on earth to do for us! To be the human sacrifice that saved us all! His death gave us life!
Cassia comes from the Hebrew word, “qadad” which means to bow the head, to stoop and to strip off. Like cinnamon the leaves of the cassia shrub are first stripped off and then the bark is ground into a fine powder. This portrays Jesus’s sacrificial laying down of his own life. He was willing to empty Himself out and to be stripped of His deity. He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point death (Phil. 2:3-8) and was crushed for us. It reminds us of the sacrifice He made on our behalf and that He became our propitiation and our substitute. (I John 2:2) ”And He [that same Jesus Himself] is the propitiation (the atoning sacrifice) for our sins, and not for ours alone but also for the [sins of] the whole world.” Psalm 51:7 says “Purify me with hyssop, and I will be clean; Wash me, and I will be whiter than snow.” Hyssop was used for cleansing and purification.
King Solomon used cedarwood in building God's temple and Jesus was crucified on a cross made of cedarwood or cypress. It was thought to bring wisdom. Cedarwood was used for ritual cleansing and served as medicine in treating skin conditions and leprosy. Aloes was used by the Egyptians for embalming dead bodies. Nicodemus brought it (pounded aloe-wood) to embalm the body of Christ (John 19:39). Jesus was proof that you were worth dying for! His body took every beaten that we deserved.
The Myrtle tree is an evergreen shrub that has a very strong root system. Although it takes so many years to fully mature, even during horrible times the tree is strong enough to withstand it, even if you cut it down to the stump! Because if the strong root system, it will sprout again!
