I have had several people ask me about making anointing oil.
Just so you know, there is no power in the oil itself, the power is in our faith, understanding and supplications unto God. That is where the power is. The oil is just a symbol or tool that we use to help focus our prayers.
So with that said, simple olive oil can be used and is used at times in scripture.
Other times there is fragrant anointing oil that is used. I have seen this sold at Christian book stores, but I prefer making my own and praying over it as I make it. This anointing oil what I use on our home, personal items and property, but I also use it on myself and wear it as a fragrance or use it to anoint myself.
Here are the oils that I use…

Feel free to use any oils that you wish to use. I also use a lite base oil like grape seed or sweet almond. You can use lite olive oil, but I do not use virgin or extra virgin because it will battle with the other fragrances. I then put my mixture in a one ounce bottles.

Blending The Anointing Oil
This is where your own personal preference comes into play. I mix what I think smells good to me. But the one thing I make sure that I have is frankincense, myrrh, lavender and clove. The lavender and clove have healing properties in it and can help the healing process if you are using this oil on a sick child or other family member.
To start, take one of your empty bottles and start dropping drops of the oils you have selected. You can count your drops and write down your recipe if you want. Me, I tend to blend on the go and my anointing oil is never the same twice.
While I am doing this I am usually humming praise songs. I also pray asking God to bless the oil and bless and protect everything that I anoint with this holy oil.
Why Do I Use It As A Fragrance?
By doing this, it helps me to reflect more on the Lord. I smell the sweet smell and it reminds me to think about the Lord, pray, praise, sing, etc. The fragrance helps me stay in a state of holy awareness, if that makes sense to you.
Often when I am at a speaking engagement I will anoint myself and the aroma helps me maintain a full on mindset for the Lord.
For the women, I have seen some nice necklaces that are diffusers. Meaning that you can place drops of your oil on little porous stone balls and put them in a broach and you can smell the aroma all day.
For example here is one that looks like a heart with a cross.

In today’s very busy world, we tend to not think about God all the time. This is why I like wearing my anointing oil. The key is to be able to use the aroma as a trigger to help you stay in a conscious state where we are thinking about the Lord all through the day. This in turn helps us to praise Him, thank Him and continue to talk to the Lord all day long. At least that is what it does for me.
Anointing Your Home and Property
What I do is start praying out loud that God protect our home. I let any evil that may be in the home know that they are no longer welcome and they are commanded to leave. I walk around anointing the doors, windows and vents in our home.
I also anoint the door to our bedroom and our bed itself and ask God’s blessings, favor and protection while we sleep. I anoint any other doors like the bathroom or closets asking God’s protection.
Before anointing the final door, I commanded, in the Name of Jesus, that every evil spirit in the house leave through that un-anointed door.
Finally I anoint / seal (draw a cross with the oil) over and on the sides of the last door. I ask God to protect our home and that our home remain being a holy place where God via the holy spirit abides. I ask that His favor, mercy, blessing, protection in and over our home. I also ask that He give us and everyone who comes into our home wisdom, patients and love for one another.
I have found this to work every time and it provides a safe haven for me and my family.
Now, with that said, you may need to do this once a year or several times a year. In our modern day and age we are ignorant as to what we may bring into our home that might create an opening for evil to come in again. If that is the case, you and your spouse pray over the home and go through the anointing process again.
