Irish Blessings Oils – The tradition of anointing with sacred oil is very old indeed. It is used in sacraments and also as a devotional practice. The sick person is invited to apply oil on the part of their body they want healed but as they do so, they are asked to pray to whomever the oil is dedicated to. The Irish blessings oils do not have miraculous power, as it is God who has the power to heal. Prayer and a gesture of faith, like applying the oil, are important ways for us to express our faith in God’s power.
The Irish Blessings oils, which have a healing affect, are dedicated to the Holy Spirit, Our Lady and the saints. The oils come through prayer and are placed on their designated altars for a period of prayer before being sent out. All the oils have their own individual essential oil fragrance. The oils are of therapeutic grade.
The bottles of oils going out are accompanied with a prayer card personalised for the saint to whom the oil is dedicated to.
