Essential Oils in the Bible

Do you ever encounter something about essential oils and pass it off as some new fad going around? Essentials oils are definitely not something new, in fact, they were mentioned in the Bible as well as their sources. In Bible times, essential oils were used as fragrances, odors, ointments, aromas, perfumes, and sweet savors which are many of the uses that we use them for today.

I hope you enjoy this presentation on how essential oils were used during Bible times!
