Shemen HaMishchah, or Anointing Oils, are favorite of Emerald customers! All essential oils and carrier oils are anointing oils in my opinion, but these are specifically blended to be as close as the biblical 'recipes' as possible according to the research I've done at the inspiration of the Ruach HaKodesh. (The Holy Spirit.) It has took months and months to get these off the ground, much longer than anticipated. Almost as if unseen forces didn't want them to become available! Hmmm. But YHWH!



Esther's anointing is of course based on the preparation blend of Queen Esther, let's briefly discover the mysteries of this magnificent story, and the deep meaning behind the oils she was anointed with....



"Now the king was attracted to Esther more than to any of the other women, and she won his favor and approval more than any of the other virgins. So he set a royal crown on her head and made her queen instead of Vashti." Esther 1:17"




Before a young woman’s turn came to go in to King Xerxes, she had to complete twelve months of beauty treatments prescribed for the women, six months with oil of myrrh and six with perfumes and cosmetics." Esther 2:12



Six full months just with oil of Myrrh alone! WOW. Yes we know that Myrrh is great for retaining youthful skin among other health benefits like being calming, anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory just to name a few, but I don't believe that's why Esther was anointed with Myrrh. Biblically speaking Myrrh is for purity, embalming and anointing for burial. Could it be that she was anointed with Myrrh as a means to leaving her old life behind and starting her new life with the King? Is this sounding familiar to anyone? "Then Jesus said to His disciples, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me." Matthew 16:24"Whoever seeks to save his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life will preserve it." Luke 17:33




"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.' 2 Corinthians 5:17After six months of anointing with Myrrh, Esther is treated to another six months of anointing, this time with perfumes and cosmetics, certainly to make her a beautifully, sweet aroma to her King.




"For we are to God the pleasing aroma of Christ among those who are being saved and those who are perishing." 2 Corinthians 2:15As we know, her King held out the scepter of acceptance when she went to him with her requests. As you anoint yourself or others with this oil, let us never forget who is the Author and Finisher of our faith and the Giver of every good and perfect gift.


The other oils in the Esther's Anointing blend are listed in Alphabetical order along with their scriptural meaning, or skincare benefits if the biblical meaning is unknown.


Esther's Anointing

  • Here is a Live Video discussion I made on the oils that I think will be a blessing to you as you explore the new Shemen Hamishchah!

  • Cardamom- As one of the world's most ancient spices, the history of cardamom is long, dating back at least 4000 years, and although not mentioned by name in the bible as with a lot of spices in those times, it was prized for its medicinal qualities, used in freshening breath and the Greeks and Romans used cardamom spice for perfumes, ointments and aromatic oils. Historically speaking, it makes sense to think it may have been part of the anointing ritual of Esther.




    Cinnamon- Sweet Cinnamon is one of the four aromatic ingredients of the Holy Anointing Oil described in Exodus 30:23, it is BOLDLY aromatic and implies passion and courage.



    Copaiba Balsam-Balsam was an ingredient of the incense (ketoret) burned in the Tabernacle and was a costly, sought after oil. Today it is used as a healing agent for wounds and as an antidote to snakebite and the sting of scorpions! AMAZING! (Luke 10:19 Comes to mind!)




    Frankincense-Is one of the ingredients YHWH instructed the Israelites to use in making the pure and sacred incense blend for the most holy place in the tabernacle. The Hebrew word for frankincense is labonah, which means "white," and is believed to have been chosen as one of the three gifts given to Yeshua at His birth because it indicates ROYALTY.
