Like other oils in this kit, Sandalwood helps maintain the appearance of healthy, beautiful, youthful skin and is supportive of overall health and well-being.
John 19:39 – “He was accompanied by Nicodemus, the man who earlier had visited Jesus at night, Nicodemus brought a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about seventy-five pounds.”
