PRECIOUS GIFT! This lovely, hand-carved alabaster jar in white measures 4.25" high and comes with 1/4oz Spikenard Anointing Oil. This beautiful set comes packaged in a beautiful gold box perfect for presentation and gifting. The jar will hold approximately 1/8 oz of oil. However, it is a porous stone and will absorb the oil so advised to only fill with what you will use at the time. This makes a beautiful gift or to have for your ministry of annointing.
Spikenard, a rare and costly fragrant oil, was used by Mary of Bethany to anoint the head and feet of the Messiah two days before His death, as recorded in John 12:3: “Then Mary took a pound of ointment of spikenard, very costly, and anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped his feet with her hair: and the house was filled with the odor of the ointment.” It speaks of the Bride’s extravagant adoration of and intimacy with the Bridegroom, in total abandonment, without regard to cost.
Song of Sol 1:12"While the king sits at his table, my spikenard sends forth its fragrance."
