Mitzvah #212 – Replicating the Anointing Oil

Tweet about this on Twitter0Share on Facebook0Share on LinkedIn0Pin on Pinterest0
It’s forbidden to make scented oil using the recipe used for the Anointing Oil as described in Shemot Ch. 30, which was used by Moshe Rabbeinu to anoint the Mishkan and the Cohanim.

This is forbidden only if one intends to use the oil as lotion.  If one simply wants to learn how the Anointing Oil was made, then it’s permitted to make it.

Applies to everybody, always, everywhere

Verse: “…and it’s recipe do not replicate” (Shemot 30:32)
