God’s Favorite Aroma Part II

Aromatherapy and the Christian Bible

Stink Stank Stunk
Jesus tells us that we are to be a light set on a hill in order to let other people see the light of God, or to be salt so that others can taste the goodness of God’s love.(Matthew 5:13-16) If light or salt is not good it is simple gone. Non-existent. When you say the light in the room is bad it means it is too dark. Or if good food is tasteless it is because there is no salt. To say that we are to be the aroma of Christ is another matter. When aroma is bad it stinks. People will go away from anything stinky, or try to get rid of it. As Christians we do not want to cause people to turn away from God because of our bad behavior. How many times have you heard some one say that they do not want to have anything to do with God or the Church because of some one’s un-Christian behavior? We need to renew our minds daily, to spend time reading and studying God’s Word and to pray often. We need to refresh our aroma so that we can always be a lovely aroma to God and to a lovely aroma for Christ.
“Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.” Romans 12:1-2
“But even if you should suffer for the sake of righteousness, you are blessed. and do not fear their intimidation, and do not be troubled,  but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you, yet with gentleness and reverence; and keep a good conscience so that in the thing in which you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ will be put to shame.” 1Peter 3:14-16
“Let your speech always be with grace, as though seasoned with salt, so that you will know how you should respond to each person.” Colossians 4:6

Hi, my name is Naomi, I am a Christian, certified aromatherapist. I also have an Associate Degree in Bible. I looked for books about aromatherapy from a Christian point of view and didn't find any, so I wrote one, The Aromatherapy Advocate. An introductory book for Christians on aromatherapy. I have one son whom I home schooled. I started using essential oils 10 years ago. I love the fragrances and I love the powerful benefits of using essential oils. I received my certificate about 10 years ago and have been teaching and writing about aromatherapy from a Christian perspective since then.
