Cistus Essential Oil - a Bible Healing Oil

Cistus ladanifer1Juan SanchezCistus essential oil (Cistus ladanifer) is derived from the plant that is referred to as the Rose of Sharon in the Bible.

The Rose of Sharon is also known as the rock rose and ladanum.

As sheep and goats browsed near Mt Carmel, an aromatic resin from the Rose of Sharon would collect on the wool and hair. Shepherds discovered that rubbing the resin on wounds found among the flock would soothe them.
