We ran a contest Dec 11-14 with these 3 oils being the prize. The response was truly wonderful and we wanted to offer this trio to all of you for a fraction on the price until Jan 2019.
Here is a brief explanation as to the significance of Frankincense, Myrrh and Gold. We know that Goldenrod Essential Oil is not a substitute for Gold but it works for what we would like to accomplish in promoting essential oils.
For those who would like, Pure Joy Naturals would be happy to send or give you a Bible at no cost to you. We will put it on out product list for you to choose if you like. You are also welcome to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Frankincense is a white resin or gum. It is obtained from a tree by making incisions in the bark and allowing the gum to flow out. It is highly fragrant when burned and was therefore used in worship, where it was burned as a pleasant offering to God (Exodus 30:34). Frankincense is a symbol of holiness and righteousness. The gift of frankincense to the Christ child was symbolic of His willingness to become a sacrifice, wholly giving Himself up.
Myrrh was also a product of Arabia, and was obtained from a tree in the same manner as frankincense. It was a spice and was used in embalming. It was also sometimes mingled with wine to form an article of drink. Such a drink was given to our Savior when He was about to be crucified, as a stupefying potion (Mark 15:23). Matthew 27:34 refers to it as “gall.” Myrrh symbolizes bitterness, suffering, and affliction. The baby Jesus would grow to suffer greatly as a man and would pay the ultimate price when He gave His life on the cross for all who would believe in Him.
Gold is a precious metal and as such was a very valuable commodity. Gold is a symbol of divinity and is mentioned throughout the Bible. The gift of gold to the Christ child was symbolic of His divinity—God in flesh.
Golden rod which is also known as the Solidago Canadensis is the botanical plant of daisy family. The essential oil is extracted from the goldenrod flowers by the process of steam distillation. It has been used for medication purposes. The term Solidago was derived from the Latin term solidare which means to make whole. The plant has leaves in alternated form with the golden flowers on the top which grows from 2 to 3 feet high. It works wonder for skin care and urinary tract infections. This plant is an inherent to Canada, USA and Mexico but some species is an inherent to the parts of Europe. Goldenrod has anti-inflammatory, carminative, antifungal, diuretic and expectorant properties. We will add this to our line of essential oils.
The goldenrod essential oil can be used in variety of ways:
- The goldenrod essential oil can be inhaled to treat respiratory conditions or allergies. The inhalation can be done by directly from the bottle or breathing in its fumes or putting few drops in handkerchief. A few drops can be added to the palm of hands and cup them over the nose.
- Excess build up mucus can be cleared by adding 5 drops of goldenrod oil to a sink full of hot water and breathing the vapors by covering the upper torso and head with a towel.
- Massage the aching joints and muscles with the mixture of goldenrod essential oil and good quality base oil such as sweet almond, jojoba, coconut. This massage can provide a relax experience.
- A few drops if added alone or with other oil to a diffuser then it provides calm and supports general well being and mental clarity.
