Essentially Empowered Book Club

Aromatic plants, herbs and oils have been used for incense, perfume, culinary and medicinal purposes for thousands of years by many cultures.  Since ancient times, spices and oils have been an integral part of the Hebraic culture.  The Bible mentions over 33 species of fragrant plants with over 1,035 references to essential oils and/or plants in the Old and New Testaments.  

This month we will be discussing the twelve most highly-praised fragrances presented in Holy Scripture based on Rebecca Totilo’s book, Healing Oils of Ancient Scripture.  These include: Spikenard, Galbanum, Frankincense, Myrrh, Cypress, Cedarwood, Aloes/Sandalwood, Rose of Sharon, Cassia/Cinnamon, Hyssop, Onycha, and Myrtle.  While some perfumers have used these names to label their own formulas, only the attributes of the biblical oils that are pure, therapeutic grade essential oils from all over the world will be discussed.  

This is a free event. Open to the public.
