Did you know: Vayikra is the first parsha [portion] of sefer [the book of] Vayikra [Leviticus]?

Bible: We will be reading this lesson from Torah Class about the Olah and Minchah. We will learn about these burnt offerings of meat and grain.

Current Events: The altar being built by the Temple Institute is now complete (you can read about that here). This week, we will be reading about the showbread that they are baking as well.

Science: This week we learn that the offerings made by fire created a pleasing aroma unto the LORD. In honor of this fact, we will be studying our sense of smell. Did you know that your sense of smell is linked to parts of your brain that process emotion?

Fun Craft: This week, we learn all about scents, smells, and essential oils. That being said, it would be wonderful to spread some health-boosting scents through our house. We will be making our own homemade reed diffusers. This is the tutorial online. It seems easy enough, right?

Culinary Fun: This week we read about cakes made with grain (flour), oil, and frankincense. Because of this, we will be making simple recipes using essential oils. Some essential oils are not edible so don’t just make up a recipe. Do you research and make sure what you are choosing to cook with is safe for culinary use. When in doubt, purchase extracts from your grocery store rather than using random essential oils. I like to cook with citrus essential oils. We are using this site as our basis for information and recipes. The lavender lemonade sounds wonderful… especially as the weather is warming up slowly here in the Northeast.

Health: Continuing our study of essential oils from our Culinary Fun unit this week, we will be studying the benefits of essential oils (applied topically and smelled). We will probably visit the local health store and see what they offer. We will definitely sample some of their testers. Here is one site to get your started. Another are of study for us is the study of herbs used in healthcare. We will be perusing The Natural Health School’s website. They offer free classes online that cover a variety of topics in the subject of herbalism and human body systems.
