Biblical Aromatherapy

by Robert Bike

The Bible mentions about 232 plants by name, or closely enough to figure out what plant is meant. Of these, 24 are aromatic plants; that is, parts of the plants can be pressed or distilled to get an essential oil. Essential oils are the lifeblood of plants and have tremendous healing capabilities.

The healing power of plants is the basis for modern medicines.

Biblical Aromatherapy
discusses how the plants were used in biblical days and how you can use the essential oils from biblical plants.

Originally published in manuscript form in 1999, I completely revised the book and added illustrations.

George Dewey Lipscomb was probably the first black person to graduate from Freeport High School. He is the only non-white in the 1919 Polaris from any graduation class. Black Abe was the first black to attend Freeport schools in 1846, but I cannot find a record that he graduated.

In 1915, during Freeport's 80th birthday party, there was a pageant celebrating historical events in Freeport, including the 1858 Lincoln-Douglas debate. Lipscomb played the abolitionist Frederick Douglass. (FHS principal Luther Fulwider played John Addams, father of Jane Addams; Frank Furst, founder of Furst-McNess played Abraham Lincoln; and Roscoe Carnahan played Stephen A. Douglas.)

Lipscomb won the State Oratorical championship while at FHS. He went on to Northwestern University, where he won other oratorical honors.

He taught at Wiley College, West Virginia State College, and at Howard University in Washington, D. C. His play, "Frances" won the National Opportunity Prize.

Lipscomb became a published author:

Bobby on Safari in the Elephant Country by George Lipscomb and Elton C. Fax (1938)

Dr. George Washington Carver, Scientist by Shirley Graham, George Dewey Lipscomb, and Elton C. Fax (1944)

Handbook for Students of Speech

Tales From the Land of Simba (A Wonderful World Book) by George Dewey Lipscomb (1961), written for the New York City Board of Education.

Lipscomb's co-authors are of note.

Elton Fax was one of America's best black artists. Over a 60-year career, he illustrated more than 30 books and drew a weekly cartoon strip, "Susabelle."

Shirley Graham was an early black American author, playwright, composer, and activist. She married W.E.B. DuBois.

His book about Carver has been translated into seven languages and is used by the State Department in information centers.
