Aloha. My recommendations to make authentic holy anointing oil:
Allow 30 + minutes of un-interrupted time to concentrate on this sacred and service. Wash your hands thoroughly. Turn-off your phone and background tv, radio, etc. Breathe deeply. Relax. Enjoy your part in this ancient and special ceremony.
A Bible opened to Exodus 30:23 and Mark 6:13 to give thanks to God, to Moses and to Jesus, the anointed and the anointer. This is a Hebrew/Christian lineage we follow here. It’s a ‘mandate’ from old to continue the tradition of anointing for the wellbeing of the tribe.
2 @ 2-cup Pyrex measuring cups
a small, electric coffee grinder
a stainless steel strainer
a clean, white cloth (12″ x 12″ or so)
1/4 Oz. Premium Cannabis flower tops (buds)
1 cup (8 Oz.) Organic Extra virgin olive oil
Premium “essential oils” (Young Living is one excellent purveyor)
30 drops of myrrh
15 drops of cinnamon and
30 drops of cassia (cinnamon leaf)
(Preferred Method) the olive oil in a double boiler until quite warm. add herb. heat for 20 min being careful not to scorch the mixture. With a sieve drain the oil off, squeezing all the oil out of the herb. Add the rest of the ingredients stirring gently let cool and package.
(if you don’t have a double boiler)Put one cup of olive oil in a Pyrex cup. Put the Pyrex cup in a saucepan of water. Heat the olive oil in the double boiler until water boils for a few minutes and the oil gets hot.
Grind Cannabis buds in an electric coffee grinder, or similar. Add the ground Cannabis to the hot olive oil. Re-heat the mixture of oil and Cannabis on low flame or temp. for approximately 5 – 10 min. (Boil the water – not the oil.)
The (HOT!) Pyrex measuring cup with the oil and Cannabis is ready to be poured through the cloth and strainer (like a paper coffee filter fits into a strainer) into another Pyrex cup. Squeeze the remaining ground buds and olive oil mash to get most of the liquid mixture into the second Pyrex cup.
* Add the leftover ‘mash’ to spaghetti sauce or baked goods, etc.
Now you will have a 2-cup Pyrex measuring cup containing one relatively clear cup of Cannabis-infused olive oil.
Add drops of myrrh (30), cinnamon (15) and cassia (30) essential oil.
Add prayer, intention, blessing, song, chant, music.
Pour into smaller bottles as desired. (8 @ 1 ounce bottles, or 16 @ one-half ounce bottles, etc.). Done.
Offer the aroma first. Most people love the smell, but if they don’t appreciate it – don’t anoint them. Why? Because once it’s ON a person – it’s IN the person.
Offer a prayer or a blessing to set a high and healing intention. Then apply a small amount, an ‘underdose’. Put a few drops on the inner wrist, pulse-points. Then rub wrists together. I recommend putting some from the wrist to under the nose and inhale deeply the 3,300 year-old sacred recipe to record it into your aromatic memory bank. Then put about ten drops on the crown of the head, as in ‘anoint your head with oil’. Amen.
Happy, blessed anointing to you and yours!
