Containing several uplifting oils in use since Biblical times, as well as others known for their mood enhancing properties or “rejoicing the heart” as the writer of Proverbs so aptly put it, this beautiful and intoxicating blend of therapeutic grade essential oils known as Joy™, is available today from Young Living ~ Pioneer and world leader in essential oils.
“The Biblical writers may not have understood how aromas feed directly to the emotional brain, but they knew by experience, led by God, that certain perfumes, ointments, and incenses brought joy to their hearts, relieved their stresses, brought them peace and calmness, clarified their thinking, uplifted their spiritual awareness, and assisted them in their prayers, worship, and daily living.”(1)
Four Bible passages from both the Old and New Testaments (Psalms 45:7, Proverbs 27:9, Isaiah 61:1,3, and Hebrews 1:9) all have one thing in common. They each refer to aromatic anointing oils as vehicles of joy, gladness, and rejoicing.
“Why would the Bible suggest that a physical substance like an oil be associated with an emotional state?”
This is an important questions answered by Dr. David Stewart, author of Healing Oils of the Bible.
“There is a scientific answer to that question”, writes Dr. Stewart, “The oils of joy or gladness referenced in the scriptures above were all essential oils or vegetable oils containing essential oils. How do we know this? Only essential oils have mood altering properties. Vegetable oils do not. The anointing oils of the Bible always contained aromatic essential oils…all essential oils have emotional impacts. This is why…”
“…It all has to do with the way our noses are wired into the brain.”(2)
Our nose is different from our other four senses (touch, taste, sight, and hearing). Rather than being connected with the rational part of our cerebral cortex, our nose is wired to the brain backwards. The olfactory nerves connect directly to the “diencephalon” or the “amygdala” otherwise referred to as the limbic system or “emotional / central brain”. This system includes neural cortex and endocrine glands, so it functions both electrically and chemically via hormones.
The emotional brain does not respond to words, whether read, spoken, heard, or felt by braille. The emotional brain only responds to smell.
Your central brain stores your emotional memories somewhere in and throughout your body. The brain-body connection is very interesting and many researchers believe the roots of many illnesses and physical conditions stem from buried, stored, repressed emotions that we have not faced.
Essential oils are known to be extremely valuable in releasing emotional patterns that trouble us on any and/or all levels – physical, mental, social, emotional, and spiritual.
Through our olfactory system connected to the limbic region of our brain, essential oils touch our emotions in ways that cannot be reached by any other means.
“When the roots of our illnesses or conditions stem from buried emotions, essential oils can assist in releasing such blocks to our health and happiness…The peoples of the Bible seemed to understand this and diffused the fragrances of a variety of essential oils in their homes and synagogues and rubbed them on their bodies as well.”(3)
A state of cheerfulness is elevating to the immune system, helping to protect one from illness. Our emotional state IS a key element to our state of health and our bodies ability to remain free of dis-ease.
Dr. Stewart notes that “a positive mental attitude must be accompanied by right habits of healthful living…but a little oil of joy can go a long way in keeping us well.”(4)
“The Biblical writers may not have understood how aromas feed directly to the emotional brain, but they knew by experience, led by God, that certain perfumes, ointments, and incenses brought joy to their hearts, relieved their stresses, brought them peace and calmness, clarified their thinking, uplifted their spiritual awareness, and assisted them in their prayers, worship, and daily living.”(5)
