Holy oil from reliquiaries
« on: March 15, 2019, 12:24:05 AM »
Out of curiosity, is anyone aware of where holy oil from saints relics may be obtained online? I am aware of the oil of Saint John Maximovitch and the Holy Martyr Panteleimon as they were listed on a inactive thread, but are there any others?

Thank you for the link! I looked all over the website for holy oil, and all I could find was herbal essential oil and olive oil. Maybe I'm looking in the wrong place and the website doesn't call it holy oil?

Oops. Sorry. I find it hard to search in English, found in Russian ))
oil - http://ioann-shop.ru/ru/305-maslo-osvyasshennoe-na-mosshakh
payment - http://ioann-shop.ru/ru/content/5-payment
shipping (say overseas shipping is) - http://ioann-shop.ru/ru/content/1-delivery

In General, there should be many such shops.

Your best bet for the "real" thing.... is to visit such a relic and get it first-hand.

Often myrrh streaming icons "travel" to various parishes.... and it may be good for you to do a "pilgrimage" of sorts to meet up with one.

I have some from the tomb of St. George which was streaming oil when I visited the Holy Land a couple years ago.
I also have some from St. Savva, when we visited his monastery also in the Holy Land.

I have others, that people have sent me... from their own personal pilgrimages and visits to relics.

I would just be worried about purchasing online something so holy. 
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.
