Testimonials for "Healing Oils of the Bible"
Dr. David Stewart has delivered far more than I was hoping for in his excellent book, The Healing Oils of the Bible. Reading it through the first time was one of those delightful experiences where I just wanted to absorb all the details with accuracy and remember them well. I marked it all up with a yellow highlighter and am now eager to go back through it again.
"Not only does Dr. Stewart present a clear Biblical answer to the many questions I had on the historical and technical aspects of the so-called "spices" and "ointments" mentioned in the Bible, but his clear examination of practical personal applications became a virtual "revelation" to me as I read. This rare information has been hidden long enough. Now it's time to open the door to these amazing creations of the Master Chemist.
"Every honest and alert student of Scripture and science will find here yet another demonstration of the unfathomable riches of God Who has created all things with purpose and amazing design. More importantly, with this book we now have divulged for us God's relevant solution to many of the perplexing disease and attitude problems of modern culture. Through the information Dr. Stewart has researched so brilliantly, even non-technical people can find life-changing guidance to the healing provision God has intended. As health issues become more complex and challenging in our time, every family will welcome the wisdom provided in this valuable resource.
This is the best book I have ever read in my life. I finished it in three days despite the fact that I have two young boys (ages 2 and 4). I liked it because it establishes a Biblical basis for aromatherapy and the use of essential oils, subjects that I love. I just couldnt put it down and I keep going back.
I just received Healing Oils of the Bible a month ago and am now on my third time reading it through. I feel like I have discovered a great treasure chest. I have been a Christian all my life, since earliest childhood, and am discovering things about my faith I never knew before. This book has really opened things up for me. What an exciting book!
I have just received my first 20 copies of Healing Oils of the Bible. WOW! Dr. Stewart has done a fantastic job of getting tons of information into one great resource for anyone using oils. The appendices are fantastic. So rich, so thorough. I got so excited, I had to get out my scriptural oils and start anointing myself. I kept my blend of oils from Exodus in my pocket the whole time I read the book. Dr. Stewart outlines a great Bible Oils program at the end that you can do in your community. Anyone could do the program with this helpful text. Even me. I learned so much! What a great book!

Most enjoyable. Easy to read. Very objective. Presents modern-day applications of essential oils as well as their use in scriptural times. A good book for ministers to gain a perspective on anointing with oils. I was amazed at the comprehensive research Dr. Stewart has done. Very thorough. So much wonderful material. I enjoyed the book very much.

A great piece of work. This is a book you will definitely want to read and have as a reference in your library. The research is all there: How the ancients of Biblical times used essential oils for health and longevity, why the essential oils you use need to be pure and unadulterated as they were in Biblical times, how the chemicals and additives we consume on a daily basis pose dangers to ourselves, and why essential oils have the ability to protect us from these toxic substances. The book also includes a guide by which you may teach others about the Healing Oils of the Bible. To everyone who wants to understand the importance and scriptural basis of pure essential oils and what they can do for you, this is a must read. Thanks to David Stewart and his fine staff.

I ABSOLUTELY love this book! It is not 'just' another book on aromatherapy. The scientific and historical research on essential oils are thorough and the presentation is easy to read and follow. Most importantly, its fun to read! I can't put the book down. . . If you are new to essential oils, this book is a MUST. It will greatly enhance your appreciation and understanding of the power of these wonderful 'God given' oils.

Dr. Stewart has done his homework. His delivery of hundreds of Bible references to essential oils combined with their uses is clear, concise, enjoyable, and fun. He has a rare gift for integrating, synthesizing, and applying vast amounts of information. A must read for anyone interested in the Biblical bases of healing with oils.

My first copy of Healing Oils of the Bible arrived while I was at ministerial school. After classes ended for the term, I took one week to vegetate and what did I do but lay in the camper that was provided for me and read and reread this fabulous book. My friends who were ordained during this session have now received this book as a gift from me. In fact, this book is one of the main gifts I give away to everyone now. I quote from it constantly.
David Stewart has a way of communicating that is easy to read and understand. After reading the book, I immediately ordered another one so that I could share it with others. For me the book brought a union of the physical and spiritual world and helped me to understand that there is much more to healing than just the physical. David Stewart has brought ancient healing practices together with today's science for tomorrow's future.
I just received your book, Healing Oils of the Bible and am totally fascinated by it. I was up till 4 A.M. reading it! It just amazes me what you have in there. Reading it has been a real awakening for me. I love the way you have it formatted so that you can pick any chapter and it reads as a stand-alone work. And as for the Bible Program at the end, I am really touched by your generosity and graciousness. This is a ministry I want to do. I just want to bless you and thank for such a beautiful gift.
This is one of the few books I have ever read that I absolutely could not put down until I finished it. I cant tell you how much I have enjoyed reading this book. It is truly wonderful!
"Healing Oils of the Bible is a book well worth reading. It is written in a comfortable and interesting style. It contains invaluable information for individuals seeking alternative therapies for themselves and their families. The book will also allay anyone's fears regarding using oils for health. This would be a good book for Bible study as Dr. Stewart has really done his research! The book contains an amazing amount of information that any student can use and enjoy. I want to share this information with as many people as possible. Anyone, regardless of race or religion, would benefit from reading this. Thank you."

"This book is extremely enlightening as well as a great source of reference. One feature I really appreciate is that you can open it to any chapter and read the information you are after without losing anything from previous chapters. It is not necessary to read the book in it's chronological order. Thank you David for organizing it in this manner."
Debbie Allen, C.N.H.P.
Davids book culminates in an easy to use, extremely well researched program that offers members of a congregation (and/or individuals who gather in their own homes) the knowledge that Jesus and his disciples practiced when they ministered to people with therapeutically active essential oils by anointing them for wellness (Mark 6:13). It is time this powerful information was available to every day use once again. You shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free, says John 8:32. Or, as more recently stated by C. Everett Koop, Former U.S. Surgeon General, The best prescription is knowledge. And knowledge on anointing and why, is the gift within the pages of Davids book. Bravo David!
