Meet Me, Esther Cohen
Hi, my name is Esther Cohen, I am the CEO of Holy Land Oils because of my passion for aromatherapy, I love oils, balms, and creams of which I have made many combinations at my home in Israel. It pleases me that people enjoy my blend of ingredients and benefit from their healing, soothing and holistic properties. Olive oil is a very rich oil with many healing therapeutic properties, emotionally, spiritually, and physically.
I am also a personal trainer and holistic nutritionist, I teach a wide range of exercise and fitness classes, such as Pilates, body sculpting, aerobics, and aqua exercise classes. Over the past 25 years, I have been training and teaching krav maga and am a black belt 4th, Dan. I train men, women, and children from all over the world how to defend themselves and that gives me a lot of satisfaction.
Holy Land Oils uses oils that are made right here on Israeli soil. Our soil is rich in minerals, which influences and endows the high quality of my oils. Using organic essential oils that are from their natural grown environment, makes them rich in healing qualities. They bear a strong, rich, and fresh scent, the very same as our ancestors would have smelled in biblical times.
Oils in Biblical Times, Aromatherapy, and the bible are very connected. In the Holy Temple of Jerusalem, the high priest (the Cohen) was the only one authorized to use the oil. In the bible, the word oil was always olive oil. Later the prophets and kings were also allowed.
In Israel, we pray for the coming of the Messiah, which means the “anointed one”. The high priest used to anoint kings, prophets, priests, and Temple articles. The olive oil was enhanced with essential oils such as Myrrh, Myrtle, and Cinnamon. The holy anointing oil is described in Exodus 30:22-25.
The Land of Israel is known as the land of milk and honey. Israel has seven species of trees and plants naturally grown in its lands, these are olives, grapes, wheat, barley, figs, dates, and pomegranates. Even today, Olive trees which were abundant in biblical times in Israel are till today growing on the plains and in her beautiful hills, from the Galilee to Samaria and the Judean Dessert.
