Rose of Sharon

Used in : Song Of Songs Oil

"I am the Rose of Sharon, and the lily of the valley" Song of Songs 2:1

In Hebrew this flower is called “chavatstzelet” and was probably the meadow-saffron or crocus.

The same Hebrew word “chavatstzelet” is also mentioned in Isa 35:1-2 and translated there as crocus - “The wilderness and the desert will be glad, and the Arabah will rejoice and blossom; like the crocus. It will blossom profusely and rejoice with rejoicing and shout of joy. The glory of Lebanon will be given to it, the majesty of Carmel and Sharon. They will see the glory of the LORD, the majesty of our God.”

The exuberant joy of the new things is enhanced and celebrated by this fragrance. Our Bridegroom “the Rose of Sharon” is able to bring this forth, in our heart’s and life’s desert places.

Defining the Rose of Sharon requires the wisdom of Solomon. There were many disagreements in antiquity over Rose of Sharon as roses do not grow wild in the region. A likely candidate is Cistus, called Rock Rose. This beautiful flower has a soft honey-like scent and may be the small shrubby tree called the Rose of Sharon. Anciently, the gum that exudes from this plant was collected from the hair of goats that had browsed among the bushes.

Cistus has been studied for its effects on cell regeneration.
