Oil of the Three Marys - Biblical Oil
Please note handling time for this oil is 10 business days.
This listing is for a half-ounce bottle of Oil of the Three Marys, containing appropriate essential oils and herbs, including spikenard.
The Oil of the Three Marys is the same formula as the Ointment of the Three Marys, only in a liquid form. This biblical formula is an ancient and revered blessing and healing formula, containing rare (and costly) herbs and essences. It was historically used to anoint those who are sick, wounded, or possessed by evil spirits, and to call blessings and healing on the faithful.
In medieval tradition, this is the ointment that Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of Jesus, and Mary of Bethany (the sister of Martha and Lazarus) brought to anoint the body of Jesus (which they were shocked to find missing from its tomb). Some sources say the Three Marys with the ointment were Mary Magdalene, Mary Salome, and Mary the mother of James.
Obviously there have been variations over the centuries in terms of the legend, but the rich tradition of this ointment as used in healing and blessing is ancient. For more information on this tradition, see Bede's 8th century Martyrology (or my blog when I get around to translating it and writing it up), or Chretien de Troyes' 12th century "Knight of the Cart."
Sold as a curio only. Not a substitute for medical attention or advice. No medical treatment or efficacy is expressed or implied. This is absolutely not medicine. In fact, it's not even formulated as a cosmetic for skin use; it's a spiritual oil for use in prayer and the anointing of objects. Do not use on children or open wounds. Do not ingest. Do not try to resurrect the dead. God helps those who help themselves and God invented doctors for a reason. Seek professional medical treatment for medical problems. Do not be an idiot.
