Ein Gedi Anointing Oil
Some of the most ancient oils are frankincense, myrrh and spikenard. In the Torah, incense (ketores) is mentioned as a fragrant offering brought in the Jewish Holy Temples - Beit Hamikdash. It consisted of eleven ingredients and it was given to produce a satisfying aroma before G-d. It is said that the smelling of a fragrance invigorates a person's soul and life force. Jasmine is the essence of a wondrously sweet smelling flower which blooms in late summer and has a heady aroma. The Galilee olive oil is pure oil from olive trees which grow bountifully in groves all over Israel. These ancient trees have roots in the land since biblical times and were used in religious ceremonies, such as lighting the Menorah in the Beit Hamikdash, the most famous use being connected with the story of Chanukah.
