Description
 

This book brings us a complete look at healing in the early Christian church. They practiced a healing ministry that included prayer, hands-on healing and anointing which has formed a foundation for healing through the ages. They didn't anoint with cooking oils, but rather, they anointed with healing aromatic oils. Nurses, ministers, and lay-healers alike will benefit from this contemporary look at Christian healing.

"Through her book and her ministry, I believe Linda Smith to be an agent of God anointed to bring to the 21st century the healing techniques as taught by Jesus and practiced by his disciples and the early church. This is the missing link in today's Christian ministry - a healing art that has been lost for more than a thousand years. This book, both ancient and advanced, both scriptural and scientific, can empower you to experience levels of health and wellness that exceed even the best that modern medicine can offer. Thank you Linda for the love, hope, and compassion you and your book offers to a suffering world."
-David Stewart, Ph.D., Author of Healing Oils of the Bible

"This extraordinary book is a very comprehensive manual for using essential oils in spiritual healing, growth, and awareness, and is sure to be a favorite of those seeking spiritual truth."
-Vicki Opfer, Teacher of Natural Healing

"Finally! The coming together of the greatest healing gifts - touch, prayer, and nature's wisdom found in essential oils. Linda Smith's thorough approach covers the basics about healing oils from history to modern-day hands-on healing techniques. Her delivery is an enjoyable read. Her message is Divine."
-Marilee Tolen, RN, HNC, CHTP, CHTI, Healing Touch Practitioner and Instructor.

Size: 320 pages; 9"x 6".
