Biblical perfumes from Jerusalem –

Perfume from the Holy Land made with biblical flowers, spices and essence of Jerusalem. Stunning range of unique scents all created with love here in the Holy Land.

When one thinks of biblical perfumes, the story of Mary Magdalene comes to mind, as she used expensive perfume from her alabaster box to anoint Jesus’ head, pre-crucifixion.  Mark 14:3 tells us, “And being in Bethany at the house of Simon, the leper, as He sat at the table, a woman came having an alabaster flask of very costly oil of spikenard. Then she broke the flask and poured it on His head.”

This perfume was very expensive, and this action triggered murmurings among those present who felt that such valuable perfume could have instead been sold and given to the poor. However, Jesus rebuked them and pointed out that Mary had done a noble thing, and wherever the gospel is preached throughout the world, her actions will be a memorial to her.

Jesus’ words have indeed come to pass as we at Zak’s Jerusalem Gifts specialize in a stunning range of unique scents of Biblical Perfumes from Jerusalem using a blend of biblical flowers, spices, and essence. One such scent includes our Alabaster Jar with Spikenard Magdalena Perfume, an actual memorial to this woman’s costly sacrifice in honor of Jesus.

Throughout the Bible, we see where spices and essence were always a part of special occasions. From Exodus 30, a chapter dedicated to the Altar of Incense, we can learn some of the blends used in Biblical Perfumes from Jerusalem. “Also take for yourself quality spices—five hundred shekels of liquid myrrh, half as much sweet-smelling cinnamon (two hundred and fifty shekels), two hundred and fifty shekels of sweet-smelling cane, five hundred shekels of cassia, according to the shekel of the sanctuary, and a hin of olive oil.  And you shall make from these a holy anointing oil, an ointment compounded according to the art of the perfumer. It shall be a holy anointing oil.” (Exodus 30:23-25.)

With such Biblical details, Zak’s Jerusalem Gifts is not short on unique combinations for our Biblical Perfumes from Jerusalem collection, making meaningful gifts for your loved ones and yourself.

Proverbs 27:9 says, “Ointment and perfume delight the heart, and the sweetness of a man’s friend gives delight by hearty counsel.
