According to Matthew 10:5-8 You can’t buy anointing just like you can’t buy any other gift of the holy spirit. Isaiah 55:1 encourages us to get it for free from Jesus.

The only way anointing oil works is to act as an extension of the anointed one who is connected to heaven itself and drawing from there.
The oil by itself has no power all what is required is point of contact linked to heaven.

According to psalm 23:4 as a shepherd boy he used to anoint with olive oil his animals at night in case of injury and also to protect them from insects since if insects come inside the ears will enter the brain and kill the animal.So as Christians we should be anointed regularly to ward off the devil.
