The Anointing Oil, originally known as the “Oil of Messiah” also known as “Kaneh Bosem”, when translated from Hebrew it means “Scented Tube” which the commentaries say is probably cinnamon. It was first prescribed for the High Priest of the Temple, known as the Kohen Ha Gadol. The high priest of the Temple of Jerusalem, Israel was instructed to put the oil on himself before he blessed the children of Israel. Later this same oil was used by the Kings of Israel to anoint kings and prophets.
Nowadays we use the anointing oil to symbolize a priestly, regal, and higher self within ourselves, allowing ourselves to connect and identify with G-d. The Bible gives careful instructions on how to make up the very holy anointing oil used in the Holiest of Holies in the Temple of Jerusalem. It can be seen in the Bible in Exodus 30:23-25. The Bible recipe gives very specific instructions by parts, known then as shekels. Olive Oil mixed with myrrh and a hint of cinnamon is used to make up this oil.
