In ancient Egypt, the priests and priestesses at the healing Temple of Hathor at Dendera both taught and administered the Sacred Science of essential oils. This knowledge, which was handed down by the priest/initiates for over 5,000 years is recorded on the walls of Dendera Temple. Some people believe that Jesus and Mary Magdalene participated in the Mystery School as taught at Dendera and learned the magic of the esoteric anointing oils. The Egyptian Blue Lotus, Frankincense and Myrrh, as well as spikenard, galbanum, and rose were all treasured for their healing and spiritual properties. They were kept in treasuries and guarded as fiercely as gold. There is an outer building at Dendera called the Sanatorium, where the initiates were anointed with oils by the priests in order to experience prophetic and oracular dreams. The Sanatorium was later used as a healing center, where holy water was mixed with essential oils, amulets and crystals and used for bathing to relieve physical, mental and emotional distress. The Greeks, and later the Romans, adopted this practice and carried it into Celtic Britain and Gaul, and the idea of the "spa" was born. (Information courtesy of Mary Lomando)
Rose has been used for the skin for thousands of years. The Arab physician, Avicenna, was responsbile for first distilling rose oil, eventually authoring an entire book on the healing attributes of the rose water derived from the distillation of rose essential oil. Rosa damascena comes to us from Bulgaria and Turkey and is very high in citronellol (34-44%). Throughout much of ancient history, the oil was produced by enfleurage, a process of pressing the petals along with a vegetable oil to extract the essence. Today, however almost all rose oils are solvent extracted, which means a lower vibrational field in these products. Did you know that it takes 5,000 pounds of rose petals to distill one pound of rose oil, or approximately 60,000 roses to produce just 1 oz of Rose Oil? That's about two and a half dozen roses to make just one drop – making Rose Essential Oil one of the most treasured and worthwhile oils available!
