Essential oils have become quite popular in recent years.  Either you or someone you know uses them, but did you know that some of these oils were used in the Ancient Near East?  In Proverbs 21:20 we read:  “There is treasure to be desired and oil in the dwelling of the wise.”  Why would possession of oil be a sign of wisdom?  There are over 600 references to essential oils and/or the aromatic plants from which they were extracted in the Bible.  Why were these oils important during bible times and why are they important to us today?   This Lenten season, come experience frankincense, myrrh, sandalwood, cedar wood and other oils of the Bible.  We will look at scripture and learn about the healing properties of these revered aromatic oils.
