I just wanted to pass this on for new workers. Many workers use a holy oil of some type. Holy oil is also sometimes called blessing oil, exodus oil, healing oil, spiritual oil, prayer oil, altar oil, or high altar oil. Whatever name it is called it is the same type of oil. The oil itself comes from the bible.
23 Take thou also unto thee principal spices, of pure myrrh five hundred shekels, and of sweet cinnamon half so much, even two hundred and fifty shekels, and of sweet calamus two hundred and fifty shekels,
24 And of cassia five hundred shekels, after the shekel of the sanctuary, and of oil olive an hin:
25 And thou shalt make it an oil of holy ointment, an ointment compound after the art of the apothecary: it shall be an holy anointing oil.
So the instructions for making holy oil comes directly from the bible. Now, currently some new workers are trying to reproduce this exact same version of oil. I'm not going to tell anybody what to do, only pass on what I was taught. I was taught that when making holy oil that it's not appropriate to try to reproduce the exact same oil because the oil was only meant to be used in the temple. So when making this oil one should change it or alter it somewhat. Below is a very simple method of making holy oil.
-Glass or plastic jar with lid
-Black Marker or felt-tip pen
-Cheese cloth or other cloth
Place ingredients in the jar. Pour olive oil into the jar just so much that it covers the ingredients. It's okay to have maybe a half-inch or so extra oil on the top but no more than that. Use the handle of the wooden spoon to stir everything together. Make sure that all the ingredients have been mixed into the oil and that there are no "dry" pockets. Put the lid back on and with the tape and marker, label and date the jar. Set the jar aside for a month. Every few days or at least once a week, use the spoon handle to stir up the oil. I recommend praying over the oil often. After a month check the fragrance of the oil. If the fragrance suits your taste, strain the oil and bottle it. If the fragrance has not developed properly, strain the oil and refill the jar with fresh ingredients. Place the same oil back over the fresh ingredients and repeat the process.
