Health is one of the appreciable assets a man can possess. When one’s health is challenged, everything a man owns loses its value. With the cost of health services high on the rise, many have turned towards alternative and natural healers given to us by God and within nature.
Nature is God’s gift to us, and in it, we find health and cures; one of which is the “Balm of Gilead oil”. In the Bible it says, through prophet Jeremiah, the word of the Lord came as a promise for healing, saying; “Behold, I will bring it cure and health, and I will heal them and will show unto them the abundance of peace and truth.” (Jeremiah 33:6)
Earlier in Jeremiah’s book, the prophet had lamented about the pain and hurt Israel is experiencing at the time. He asked rhetorically; “Is there no balm in Gilead; is there no physician there? Why then is not the health of the daughter of my people recovered?” (Jeremiah 8:22). The response then came in chapter 33, where God promised to give healing and cure.
The prophet’s expression lets us recognize that God wants us to be spiritually, physically, psychologically, emotionally, and mentally healthy.
What’s in the balm of Gilead Oil?
Balm of Gilead or Balsam oil is a general term used to describe a resinous, oily, and aromatic substance secreted by various bushes and plants. It’s often used to prepare perfumes and incense such as our Aroma-Fragrance oil due to its uniqueness in smell. Balsam oil was one of the luxurious possessions in the Middle Eastern world.
Shortly after the Israelites came out of Egypt, the balsam oil was among the ingredients used in preparing the incense and anointing oil used at the Tabernacle. It was an oil of prestige mostly found among people of class and high status.
It is said to be among the lavish gifts that the queen of Sheba brought to King Solomon. Also, Esther received six months of beauty care with the balsam oil before presenting herself to the king of Persia, an exercise believed to have made her preferred above her competitors.
Therefore, the Balm of Gilead made from the balsam oil is known for its medicinal properties and as an instrument for beauty care. However, it is more known as a wound-healing balm. Ancient literature frequently referred to it as a restorative, curative, and magical balm essentially in relation to its ability to heal wounds.
