What Does The Bible Say About Using Anointing Oil?

The sight of a pastor or a priest anointing a member of their congregation is a pretty common one, but not always one that new members to the fold can understand. Anointing CBD oil in USA is much more than a new, stylish kind of facial moisturizer! Here is a quick peek at the true meaning of anointing and anointing oils, and how they are used in the family of God.

What Does It Mean to be Anointed?

Before one can understand the symbolism of oil used for anointing they would have to first understand what it means to be anointed. Someone who is anointed has been set apart, made different from those around them in the eyes of God. Abba Anointing Oil had perhaps the best definition of what it truly means to be anointed on the web:

“To be “anointed” is, among other things, to be made sacred (consecrated); to be set apart and dedicated to serve God; to be endowed with enabling gifts and grace; to be divinely designated, inaugurated, or chosen for some purpose.”

The words “anointed” and “anointing” appear often in the Bible.

Anointing Oils

There are many different kinds of anointing oils in USA, and which is used is usually determined by the church, temple or synagogue that is performing the ceremony or invocation. The first anointing oil in the Bible was found in Exodus, when the Lord ordered Moses to make a holy anointing oil of the finest spices, including flowing myrrh, sweet-smelling cinnamon, fragrant cane, cassia and olive oil. This oil was used by the priests in the temple. Today anointing oils are made of similar ingredients; one recipe calls for an oil to be made of olive oil, salt, sugar, allspice seeds, whole cloves, myrrh or frankincense.

What The Bible Says About Anointing Oil

Calamus (Acorus calamus) is mentioned three times in the Bible Exodus 30:23, Ezekiel 27:19 and

"Your channel is an orchard of pomegranates with all choicest fruits, henna with nard, nard and saffron, calamus and cinnamon, with all trees of frankincense, myrrh and aloes, with all chief spices-a garden fountain, a well of living water, and flowing streams from Lebanon." Song of Solomon 4:13-15.

Calamus was also referred to as "aromatic cane" in the NRSV. It was one of the four oils in the "holy" blend given to Moses to be used to anoint the people, the altar, the vessels and the tabernacle. There is some doubt whether the botanical plant we call calamus today is actually the same plant available to Moses. It is a reed plant that grows in marshy areas. From that description, Moses might have had access to this oil.

The ancient world used calamus as a holy anointing oil and in perfumes and incense. The healing properties are mainly due to the aromatic oil contained primarily in the root. It was esteemed as an aromatic stimulant and tonic for fever, nervous complaints, vertigo, headaches, dysentery, etc.

Today calamus is considered an antispasmodic, anti-inflammatory, and it soothes inflammation of the gastrointestinal tract. It is helpful for asthmatic bronchitis, kidney congestion after alcohol intoxication, cystitis, gout and low blood pressure. Calamus is still current in the British Herbal Pharmacopoeia. It is considered spiritually uplifting as part of a holy anointing oil.

This oil can be used topically over the abdomen for its soothing affect on the GI tract. It can be applied to the temples, brow and throat for spiritual connection and clarity of thought. Calamus can also be used as in incense. This oil is rare and hard to find and generally not used except in blends.

As for safety, there are much better oils than calamus and therefore this oil is not recommended for general use. You will find it on most British lists of oils never to be used and yet there is insufficient rationale for this oil to be so listed. It is a difficult oil to obtain and one must be careful that the oil you have is really calamus and is truly the same as the ancient oil named in the Bible.

To learn more about calamus and other Biblical essential oils you might want to consider becoming a certified aromatherapist. Educational courses in healing energy and aromatherapy can help you understand how essential oils heal the body/mind/spirit.
