Shemen: Oils of the Ancient World

In the ancient days of the Bible, essential oils and spices were widely used for holy ceremonies, perfumes, health and wellness, cooking, and various other everyday needs. These are the precursors and foundation for modern day essential oil use. Shemen is an exploration into the original Hebrew and Greek words for the plants from which these essential oils are distilled. Joshua Graff has brought to life the stories and events of the Bible that reveal how essential oils are intertwined in our history and give a glimpse of God’s amazing creation and His love for His people. 

116 pages, softcover


“Joshua has combined the true context of oil usage in scripture with a common sense understanding of essential oils today. This is a great resource for anyone using oils to maintain personal wellness; a must-have book for my essential oils toolbox.” 

- Dr. Billy Graff (PhD), President of I-Connect Outreach


“I found this book to be very informative. Being new to essential oil usage, learning about the connection between Biblical oils and modern day essential oils and their uses was very interesting to me. I highly recommend this book to any believer in the Messiah who seeks a greater understanding of the use of essential oils in the Bible.”

 -  Rabbi Mordecai Silver, Ph.D., Etz Chayim-Tree of Life Messianic Congregation, New Mexico
