ketoret essential oil blend
Ketoret essential oil blend based on the Holy incense described in Exodus. 5ml
Havenessence Ketoret essential oil blend is based on the Holy incense described in Exodus:
And the Lord said unto Moses, Take unto yourself sweet spices, stacte, and onycha, and galbanum; these sweet spices with pure frankincense: of each shall there be a like weight: And you shall make it a perfume, a confection after the art of the apothecary…
Experts disagree over the identity of Stacte and Onycha, but likely candidates include Myrrh (or a distillate thereof), Labdanum, Benzoin and Spikenard (also known as Nard), or mixtures of those ingredients (such as Labdanum blended with Benzoin).
Our Ketoret essential oil blend is a mixture of Indian Frankincense (Boswellia serrata), Myrrh (Commiphora myrrha), Galbanum (Ferula galbaniflua), Labdanum (Cistus ladanifera), Benzoin (Styrax benzoin in MPG) and Spikenard (Nardostachys jatmansi).
How authentic it is we cannot say, but this is a wonderfully fragrant, aromatic and sweet blend that lends itself very well to vapourising with heat (eg. in an oil burner, radiator burner or lightbulb ring), instilling an air of peace and calm.
This blend is full strength, so please always dilute to 5% in a carrier oil before applying directly to the skin. 5ml
