The perfect home for essential oils, our restored classic engraving depicting the anointing of Jesus adorns this heirloom quality chest. Traditionally attributed to Mary Magdalen or an 'unknown sinner woman' in the Gospel of Luke 7:36-50. "Nard" or Spikenard is taken from an alabaster jar to anoint Jesus and he says:
Do you see this woman? I came into your house. You did not give me any water for my feet, but she wet my feet with her tears and wiped them with her hair. You did not give me a kiss, but this woman, from the time I entered, has not stopped kissing my feet. You did not put oil on my head, but she has poured perfume on my feet. Therefore, I tell you, her many sins have been forgiven—as her great love has shown. But whoever has been forgiven little loves little.” Then Jesus said to her, “Your sins are forgiven.” The other guests began to say among themselves, “Who is this who even forgives sins?” Jesus said to the woman, “Your faith has saved you; go in peace.”
