You anoint my head with oil. Psalm 23:5 New for 2018, the Holy Land Gifts' anointing oils have a strong scent and come in attractive, leak-resistant packaging. Each scent is filled with a beautiful, biblical fragrance. Anointing oils were used in scripture as a symbolic representation of the Holy Spirit for prayers of healing, consecration, sanctification for leadership, and deliverance.. Myrrh was used as one of the sacred ingredients in anointing the Tabernacle and the Holy Temple, and of course was used as a gift to honor the Christ child. It was also used by Joseph of Arimathea and Nicodemus to anoint the linen used to wrap Jesus' body, and prepare him for burial.
