This anointing oil is made in Israel - the Land of the Bible by local perfumers using natural Galilee and Jerusalem virgin olive oil and scented with flowers and herbal essences that are mentioned in the Bible and characteristic of the Holy Land.
This lovely olive wood cross is made from olive wood trees from the Bethlehem area. It is better known as the 'comfort cross' as holding the soft wood offers one solace and over time the cross will develop its own natural patina adding hues and richness. This cross is also environmentally friendly since it is carved from the pruned branches of olive wood trees.
It is shaped unevenly in order to fit into your hand comfortably.
This is a beautiful spiritual keepsake for yourself or to give as a gift to someone you care about, who needs solace. Sometimes just holding this cross will bring comfort. Please note that no two crosses look exactly the same.
Dimensions: 2 3/4'' wide x 4 1/3'' long and over 1/2 inch thick.
The anointing oil comes packaged in its own decorative box. Each vial of essence has a truly unique fragrance and is produced in Jerusalem. Contains 10 ml or 0.34 fl ozs. of oil.
The idea that the Magi were three in number may have grown from the number of gifts - gold, frankincense and myrrh - offered to the infant Christ.
