Esther was a queen.
Her Scent is a rich, warm aroma including essences of Amber, Jasmine, Lotus, Myrrh, Sandalwood and Vanilla.
The daughter of Abihail, a Benjamite, she lived with her cousin Mordecai, who held an office in the household of the Persian king Ahasuerus. After divorcing Vashti, he made Esther his wife who had been prepared 6 months with aloe and myrrh and six months with spices after the custom.
King Ahasuerus was tricked by Haman the Agagite, his prime minister, into giving him authority to kill all the Jews in the Persian empire. Esther averted this catastrophe when she found favor after appearing before the king following three days of prayer and fasting. She was a woman of deep, faith, courage, patriotism, and resolution; a dutiful daughter to her adopted father, obedient to his counsel, and anxious to share the king’s favor with him for the good of the Jewish people. There must have been a singular grace and charm in her countenance and manners, since “she obtained favor in the sight of all them that looked upon her” (Esther 2:15). She was raised up as an instrument in the hand of God to avert the destruction of the Jewish people, and to provide them protection and advance their wealth and peace while in captivity.
The Jews established an annual feast, the feast of Purim, in memory of their wonderful deliverance.
