What Does Anointing Oil Represent In The Bible?
Frankincense truly has proven to be a gift from the creator for me and my family! As are all of the oils I use from Young Living!
I personally have used frankincense for a number of things, including creating a blend that included frankincense for my husband after he suffered a small stroke from food poisoning. As a result of this, he had double-vision. The eye doctor said he had a small nerve damaged in the brain. So, I made up an oil blend which included frankincense that I applied to the brain stem, temples, top of head, and on the brain reflex points on the feet. I applied it 2-3 times. And the next day...no more double vision!
Frankincense truly is a healing gift! Considered the Holy Anointing Oil, it is well-known historically for its healing powers. It has been used medicinally and spiritually for thousands of years, since the dawn of recorded history. It is mentioned in the Bible 22 times from Exodus to Revelation. A man's wealth was measured by his stores of frankincense oil. Because it was valued more than gold at that time, it was given to Jesus. It takes 40 years for a frankincense tree to mature so that the oil resin can be extracted. This accounts for the esteemed value of the oil.

"In 1993 a friend of mine introduced me to essential oils. As he shared his love for the oils, I showed him a small basal cell carcinoma that was near my lip and told him I was scheduled the following week to have it surgically removed. He handed me a small bottle of frankincense and told me to apply it three or four times a day. I applied it immediately and within 24 hours the carcinoma had changed characteristic and, within 36 hours, was completely gone. The carcinoma has never returned and that fateful meeting changed my life forever."
-Jean Marie Hepworth
