Holy Anointing Oils

Exodus 30 (KJV)
22 Moreover the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,
23 Take thou also unto thee principal spices, of pure myrrh five hundred shekels, and of sweet cinnamon half so much, even two hundred and fifty shekels, and of sweet calamus two hundred and fifty shekels,
24 And of cassia five hundred shekels, after the shekel of the sanctuary, and of oil olive an hin:
25 And thou shalt make it an oil of holy ointment, an ointment compound after the art of the apothecary: it shall be an holy anointing oil.





Pure myrrh (מר דרור mar deror) 500 shekels (about 12 lbs)
Sweet cinnamon (קינמון בשם kinnemon besem) 250 shekels (about 6 lbs)

Cassia (קדה kiddah) 500 shekels (about 12 lbs)
Olive oil (שמן זית shemen sayith) one hin (about 5 quarts according to Adam Clarke; about 4 liters according to Shiurei Torah, 7 liters according to the Chazon Ish)
