Preparation of the St. Raphael Holy Healing Oil is a multi-step process. The 100% pure olive oil, imported from Italy, is boiled with the precise amount of rose petals and rose pestals, then cooled and bottled. Throughout this process many people pray the Rosary, the Chaplet of Divine Mercy and various other prayers. The priest reads the entire Book of Tobit, blesses the oil, hears confessions and celebrates Holy Mass. All of these prayers go into the holy oil.
