Living Light Herbal Series: Healing oils of the Bible
July 16, 2016 : 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
Session #4- July 16th – Healing oils of the Bible
Have you ever taken a look at the many healing oils of the bible? There are over 600 references to oils and aromatic plants there. Get a chance to examine some of them and the modern-day essential oils from whence they come from. Frankincense, Hyssop, Lavender, Cinnamon Peppermint, Galbanum Cederwood, sandlewood, Myrtle, Cypress, spiknard and olive oil are 12 oils we will get to know. You will meet some of the plants and individual resins these oils come from and learn safe use and applications of essential oils. Getting to know our olfactory senses and discussing quality of essential oils are all part of the fun that this section offers. We will even do a blind comparison of three oils to see how you can sniff out the specific qualities in them. Since this is our last workshop we will host a potluck lunch. Please bring a special healing dish from home and celebrate the wonderful gift of coming together.
