The priests of ancient Egypt had great interest in what they called holy oils. Holy oils played a very important role in daily life inside and outside the temples.
The priests discovered how the holy oils had magical results in cleaning and opening increasing energy. They knew the effects of these oils on the Ba and the Ka. They used oil to make their meditation more powerful. They knew that the sense of smell was in communication with the oldest memory in our brains.
The holy oils were also used to relieve pain and control other physical symptoms. The oils roses – lotus – mint – camphor – olive – jasmine – lavender – sandalwood are still used today for these purposes. For meditation they mainly used musk.
