deeperShopping - Balm of Gilead Anointing Oils!
The Queen of Sheba gave King Solomon from the Old Testament balm of Gilead as a gift. An aromatic desert schrub found in the Holy Land - Commiphora apobalsamum is a rare plant and is protected in Israel. Several other plants also bare the name Balm of Gilead.
Another of the plants recognized as Balm of Gilead hales from the Canary Islands, as indicated by its species name (Cedronella canariensis). This version of the balm of Gilead is now established in many temperate regions of the world. Many plants have been called balm of Gilead: the common link is that they all have a musky, eucalyptus or camphorlike fragrance.
Our Balm Of Gilead features essential oils sourced from the Holy Land.
