Hieroglyphs on the walls of the Egyptian temples depict the blending of oils and describe hundreds of oil recipes. These ancient blending traditions date back thousands of years and are even mentioned in scripture. The first recorded blend in scripture is a recipe God gave to Moses for anointing the tabernacle and the tools found therein.
The holy anointing oil described in Exodus 30:22-25 was created from: Pure myrrh (מר דרור mar deror) 500 shekels (about 6 kg) Sweet cinnamon (קינמון בשם kinnemon besem) 250 shekels (about 3 kg) Kaneh bosem (קְנֵה-בֹשֶׂם kaneh bosm) 250 shekels (about 3 kg).
Today, we can use blends created by doTERRA for respiratory health (Breathe), Digestive health (DigestZen), and muscle and joint support (Deep Blue), just to name a few. It's interesting that blending didn't start with us though, but rather, it started way back in the old testament with Moses.
