Anointing In The Bible
There are different types of anointings. There is the spiritual anointing (Acts 10:38) and literal oil (Exodus 30:22-25). Such examples can be seen in the Old and New Testament.
9 “Then you shall take the anointing oil and anoint the tabernacle and all that is in it, and consecrate it and all its furniture, so that it may become holy. 10 You shall also anoint the altar of burnt offering and all its utensils, and consecrate the altar, so that the altar may become most holy. -Exodus 40:9-10
At that time, anointing oil was regulated by priests for the tabernacle. Whatever would be anointed became holy. It was set apart for God.
In the New Testament, there are at least two references to using oil when people were sick (James 5:14, Mark 6:13).
The LORD says this about Jesus in Hebrews 1:9, "You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness; therefore God, your God, has anointed you with the oil of gladness beyond your companions.”
So you can see all types of anointing take place all throughout the Bible. Anointing leads to blessings.
Five Ways to Bless Your Home
You can bless your home in these simple five ways…

Prayer. Ask God to protect your home and pray in each room of the house if you feel led to.

If you experience unpleasantness in your home it is possible there is a bad spirit lingering. This could be from your house not being protected or an object brought in has an attachment to it. This is why the first step to take is to throw them away. Entities can also come in by a person in the home who sinned. In this case, it calls for repentance.
