Rose of Sharon

Rose of Sharon

“the flower of the field”

“the desert shall bloom like the rose.” Isaiah 35:1

“I am a rose of Sharon, a lily of the valleys.” Song of Songs 2:1

The woman says: I am a lily of Sharon, a rose of the valley. The first part is spoken by a woman, who is called by her lover “darling” in the Song of Songs.

The man replies: You ARE like a rose – and the rest of the girls are like thorns! Her lover responds by saying, “like a lily among thorns, so is my darling among the maidens.”

The woman responds: And you’re like an apple tree among all the other trees of the forest – your shade is delightful and your fruit is sweet. Take me to your banquet hall and demonstrate your love for me. Fill me with wine and cover my bed with your fragrant apples. Hold me in your embrace. The rest of you girls, do not come between me and my man! My beloved is coming, gracefully like a gazelle. He is peeking at me from behind the wall.

My love calls me to come away with him because winter has passed and spring has arrived. The land is full of flowers, singing birds, fresh figs, and aromatic grapes. My lover compares me to a dove in the cleft of a rock and he asks that I reveal myself so that he might see me and hear my voice. I ask that he seize people who, cunning as foxes, might try to come between us. I am my beloved’s and he is mine; he stays here, among the roses. When the sun was high, however, I caused him to depart like one to a distant mountain.

Rose of Sharon perfumed with authentic organic Rose Oil, enhanced with Sandalwood and Myrtle. This special blend contains a smooth, aromatic, and enriched scent with soothing extracts that have been famous since biblical days.  This delicately scented Rose of Sharon oil is based on rich olive oil, made from oil pressed from locally-grown olives from the hilltops surrounding Jerusalem, and is rich in antioxidant vitamins and organic essential oils.

This flower from the region of Sharon in Israel is actually not a rose but is part of the hibiscus family. Its blooms are nonetheless beautiful and glorious, just as Isaiah depicted the millennial reign when the Bride of Messiah shines forth in all the radiance of her heavenly glory and beauty. The flower name was borrowed from the Song of Songs, believing it was the very strain that caused Solomon to write his erotic song.

The holy Zohar compares the Jewish nation to a beautiful rose with 13 petals and 5 sepals. It is a fundamental principle of the Kabbala that all the things G‑d creates in the lower realm, i.e. this physical existence, are expressions of their spiritual roots, forces, and divine archetypes in the upper realms.

This is the full song:

“I am a rose of Sharon, a rose of the valleys.”       

“As a rose among the thorns, so is my beloved among the daughters.”         

“As an apple tree among the trees of the forest, so is my beloved among the sons; in his shade, I delighted and sat, and his fruit was sweet to my palate.         

He brought me to the banquet hall, and his attraction to me [was symbolic of his] love.          

Sustain me with flagons of wine, spread my bed with apples, for I am lovesick.          

His left hand was under my head, and his right hand would embrace me.        

I adjure you, O daughters of Jerusalem, by the gazelles or by the hinds of the field, that you neither awaken nor arouse the love while it is desirous.          

The sound of my beloved! Behold, he is coming, skipping over the mountains, jumping over the hills.       

My beloved resembles a gazelle or a fawn of the hinds; behold, he is standing behind our wall, looking from the windows, peering from the lattices. 

My beloved raised his voice and said to me, ‘Arise, my beloved, my fair one, and come away.    For behold, the winter has passed; the rain is over and gone.          

The blossoms have appeared in the land, the time of singing has arrived, and the voice of the turtledove is heard in our land.

The fig tree has put forth its green figs, and the vines with their tiny grapes have given forth their fragrance; arise, my beloved, my fair one, and come away.          

My dove, in the clefts of the rock, in the coverture of the steps, show me your appearance, let me hear your voice, for your voice is pleasant and your appearance is comely.’ 

Seize for us the foxes, the little foxes, who destroy the vineyards, for our vineyards are with tiny grapes.        

My beloved is mine, and I am his, who grazes among the roses.       

Until the sun spreads, and the shadows flee, go around; liken yourself, my beloved, to a gazelle or to a fawn of the hinds, on distant mountains.”

The benefits of this oil blend are prayer, meditation, blessing, love, and appreciation.

For Solomon the Rose of Sharon Bride of Messiah shines forth in all the radiance of her heavenly glory and beauty…
