The olive oil which the children of Israel brought to the priest, so that the priest may light the lamp stand with 7 branches called the "menorah" (Leviticus 24:1-4), that olive oil represented the souls of the people that brought the olive oil.
Oil represents the human soul in Hebrew:
The word "soul" in Hebrew is equivalent to "oil", first fruits and inspiration, but also this same word "soul" means the tithe, the tenth, or ten attributes which are concealed in a human soul.
In Hebrew the human soul has ten attributes which are called the ten siffirot" (which consists of the three faculties of the mind and the seven emotions of the soul, 3+7=10)
The soul of a person who keeps God's commandments contains "olive oil" which derives from the tree of life (Revelation 22:14),
but a soul of person who breaks God's commandments contains "defiled or unclean oil" which derives from the eating from the tree of knowledge of good and evil (Genesis 2:17).
Ezekiel 44:30 says; The best of all firstfruits of any kind, and every sacrifice of any kind from all your sacrifices, shall be the priest’s; also you shall give to the priest the first of your ground meal, to cause a blessing to rest on your house.
Isaiah 6:13 But yet a tenth will be in it, And will return and be for consuming, As a terebinth tree or as an oak, Whose stump remains when it is cut down. So the holy seed shall be its stump.”
1 Corinthians 15:44 says; it's sown (given) in a natural body, it is raised in a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body.
The oil represented the people's physical and natural energies in form of tithes, offerings, and strength, which were given to support, to build, to promote and to connect into God's work or will which was done by those who were chosen by God to lead His people.
The human soul has 7 emotions, but also the earth has 7 attributes, Matthew 5:14-16 says; “You are the light of the world....
Simply meaning that; the person who has developed his 7 emotions into God's spiritual order or tabernacle, will also be able to influence the 7 attributes that are in the earth.
