The Scent of Ancient Scripture

If you have the Ancient Oils of Scripture Collection, here’s an AMAZING (and easy) perfume recipe to try! I think I’m in love! Seriously – so rich and exotic!

The inspiration came from a time when I stored my Scripture oils in a drawer in the bathroom. Every time I opened that drawer, my bathroom would be filled with the most intoxicating aroma – like a very expensive perfume – without the toxic after-scent! Even after I moved the collection to a closet, that drawer smelled like Heaven!

So I decided to just experiment and I’m thrilled with the result! Simply take 1 drop of each oil in the collection (except for Cassia – Cassia tries to take over, so leave her controlling-self home!).

Then finish it off with 1 extra drop of Rose of Sharon! Because…well, there’s just NOTHING like Rose of Sharon (aka: Cistus)!

Warning, again, this is a base-note heavy perfume; so it can be a powerful aphrodisiac! You are welcome, darling! 😘

Solomon’s Secret Base Blend

2 drops Sacred Sandalwood
2 drops Cedarwood
2 drops Cypress
2 drops Frankincense
2 drops Hyssop
2 drops Myrrh
2 drops Myrtle
2 drops Onycha
4 drops Rose of Sharon (Cistus)

To make a:

Spray Perfume:

  • 4 ml vodka
  • 1 ml Solomon’s Secret Base Blend
  • 5 ml glass spray bottle

Roller Bottle Perfume:

  • 4 ml Jojoba or Sweet Almond Oil
  • 1 ml Solomon’s Secret Base Blend
  • 5 ml glass roller or spray bottle


Although this blend makes an intensely romantic perfume, I’ve found that it’s also a wonderful blend to use during prayer. I like to put 1 drop of this blend on a page of my Bible. Try it! You’ll see what I mean!
