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.

Eric Buus is a US Navy Test Pilot. Lt. Cmdr. Eric "Magic" Buus was the first United States Navy pilot to fly the F-35C on February 11, 2011 (video of the flight below). He was also the first Naval Aviator to fly the F-35B on February 3, 2011. “The in-air handling qualities of the F-35C are excellent, and very similar to the B variant. I immediately felt right at home in the aircraft,” said Buus. “The Navy should be excited about having an aircraft that will be able to launch from our carriers with enough internal fuel and weapons to project power where we need to, and will have the stealth characteristics to go in and out of harm’s way unseen. This will be a great leap in technology and capability for the future of Naval Aviation.”
