No, I cannot make the claim that they will heal every ailment and erase every bad day. However, I can offer my personal knowledge and experience as a therapeutic bodyworker, as well as provide science-based resources, some that date back well beyond my years. Here is a poetic example: "Take the finest spices of liquid myrrh five hundred shekels, sweet-smelling cinnamon half as much, two hundred fifty of aromatic cane (calamus), and five hundred of cassia- measured by the shekel- and a hin of olive oil; and you shall make of these a sacred anointing oil blend..."
