Have you ever asked: 'What does the Bible really say about oils for healing?' Many people have. It is my hope that these few paragraphs will inspire you to delve further into the infinite care and detail to which our Creator has gone, so as to provide for us the medicines we need to heal and maintain our health.
It is not for us to create these healing substances, though. God did that already. It is for us to tune in with his wisdom and his will and to educate ourselves on how to restore our wellness and maintain our health by the use of what he has already created. Among these divine gifts are the oils of plants. God made them and gave us the intelligence to discover and learn how to use them.

Healing is a holistic spiritual term, not a medical one. The ancient priests and prophets of the Bible anointed people with oil and prayed with them for their spiritual purification, moral repentance, and healing. So did Jesus. So did his disciples. and so did those in the first century church.
The healing oils of the Bible are essential or aromatic. These oils are the vital fluids of plants that are their life blood. They are called "essential" because they are necessary for the life of the plant and contain the "essence" of the plant. Essential oils contain life force and intelligence (they are God created to work in specific ways, not only in the plant, but also within the human body). It was part of God's healing plan before we were even created.
These oils contain vibrational energy that imbues them with healing abilities that work within the human body. Essential oils are composed of tiny molecules that can penetrate into every cell, administering healing therapy at the most fundamental levels of our bodies.
They differ from the fatty oils we use for cooking. Fatty oils are composed of molecules much too large to penetrate to cellular levels. The familiar vegetable oils we use for foods have no therapeutic abilities, at least not in the same ways as essential oils.
In biblical times, essential oils were inhaled, applied to the body, and taken internally. Their benefits extend to every aspect of our beings: physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual. The ancient people of the Holy Land seemed to understand this quite well. They used aromatic oils for every purpose from maintaining wellness, to physical healing, to enhancement of spiritual states in worship, to emotional cleansing, to purification from sin.
