This is one of the hardest oils to blend because this blend actually has a specific amount of each oil according to the Hebrew texts of the Tanach and Hebrew texts of Jewish Sages. This is especially well-kept secret like the Shemen sod of the Ketoret (Temple Incense blend).

The Balm of Gilead is an aromatic resin, sap, also its leaves and twigs are used for medical purposes that were exported from Tyre and elsewhere. This is seen in scriptures where it is mentioned that the Ishmaelites (Arabs) who carried Yosef into Mitzrayim bondage were also Gilead Balm traders who were passing through the holy from hills of Gilead in Jericho Valley.

The Holy One arranged for a Spice caravan to bring Joseph to Egypt, so he would be surrounded by pleasant and intoxicating fragrances that enhance dreams and gave him the gift of interpreting dreams such as Balsam, Labdanum (Rose of Sharon), and Frankincense.  See Genesis 37:25. The fruit was usually crushed and made into a gooey salve. The resin was used for Holy Temple incense and the leaves were used to make healing oil. The whole tree was used nothing was ever thrown away or wasted.

Balsam trees are native to the Gilead area of Jericho Valley near the Dead Sea. Incisions in the bark of a balsam tree yield three or four drops a day from each, and left to stand the balsam becomes of a golden color and pellucid as a gem. Balm was so scarce that the Jericho gardens yielded only six or seven gallons yearly, which was worth twice its weight in silver or gold.

Today the Ancient Balsam of Gilead is once again back in Israel. Guy Erlich got his first plant from a shoot that was smuggled by a German scientist out of Saudi Arabia and brought to Israel and is now being reintroduced in Israel and the trees are once again flourishing along with the Frankincense trees.

Psalm 56 says “You have taken account of my wanderings; put my tears in Thy bottle; are {they} not in Thy book? In the ancient world, when a loved one died, mourners would catch their falling tears in a bottle and bury them as a token of eternal devotion.

Psalm 84 also speaks about Bacha (weeping) where it says ‘How blessed is the man whose strength is in you; in whose heart are the highways {to Zion} Passing through the valley of Baca, they make it a spring, the early rain also covers it with blessings. They go from strength to strength, {every one of them} appears before G-d in Zion.”

Tanach texts related to this oil can be found in Genesis 37:25, Ezekiel 27:17, Jeremiah 8:22, Song of Songs 4:1, Song of Songs 6:13, 2 Sam 5:22-25.
