Ketubah Blend- Dodi Li®™ (My Beloved) Essential Oils




This blend was first created back in 2002 when my husband I got married. The blend was sprinkled onto our ketubah canvas, sprinkled onto our Chuppah and on my bouquet of roses and lilies. The blend recepie was inspired when I was reading several passages of the Shir  ha’Shirim (Song of Songs) so I decided to take all my favorite florals with the citron which is the  Etrog because our wedding was in the High Holiday season of the year. All these oils properties are listed in the Holy texts of the tanach (The Bible). I blended them carefully together to create this beautiful unique oil. The ingredients are essential oils of flowers and citrus that are grown and distilled in Israel. Sincethat first batch in 2002 we have improved the blend recepie to greater depths and notes of citrus and floral harmony. Love is not a strong enough word to describe this beautiful blend.

It’s love and pure happiness in a bottle. Inspired from these verses: Song of Songs 2:16, and 6:3, My beloved is mine, and I am his. He feeds his flock among the lilies. Song of Songs 2:1, I am a rose of Sharon, a lily of the valleys.Song of Songs 6:7 ,Your temples behind your veil are like the halves of a pomegranate. Song of Songs 8:2, I would lead you and bring you to my mother’s house– she who has taught me. I would give you spiced wine to drink, the nectar of my pomegranates. The first batch I ever made was from oils I obtained in our holy land Israel and created this blend for my wedding day in 2002. This Blend is so inspiring that you will want to share this with you friends who are newly engaged, newlyweds, or the already married. It brings balance clarity and is very spiritually uplifting.  Enjoy with Fragrant Joy and Aromatic Blessings, Rivka
