Spikenard Essential Oil (Nardostachys grandiflora) - Nepal

Scents of Earth $43.00

Spikenard essential oil (Nardostachys grandiflora), is wild harvested from Nepal. Spikenard oil from Nepal is considered the finest in the world. Jesus had his feet anointed with spikenard by Mary Magdalene before the Last Supper. Spikenard oil's rich, mysterious, earthy constituents mingle with a soft warm spiciness, a balm to the heart and soul. It captures something of the spirit of sacred places of devotion for countless centuries. The Himalayan ranges of Nepal, India and Burma provide the natural habitat for this botanical gem, which has been revered both in the east and west for many centuries. Spikenard oil is used as an anointing oil and aromatic treasure in the Bible.

Traditional therapeutic uses: harvested for local use as well as for the trade of its valuable roots/rhizomes. Traditional healers use the root for different purposes. It's used as a stimulant, antiseptic, insect repellent and for the treatment of epilepsy, hysteria, convulsive affections, stomachache, constipation and cholera. The rhizome is used as an aromatic adjunct in the preparation of medicinal oil. It is also believed to be useful for leprosy. Mixed with sesame oil, it is rubbed on the head as a nerve sedative. Spikenard oil is also believed to promote growth and impart blackness to hair. The local people also use the rhizome for making incense by mixing it with the powder of Juniper and Sunpati. The rhizome of Spikenard is used in the preparation of medicinal oils and in perfumery. The dried rhizomes are steam-distilled to yield between 1 - 2% of essential oil, commercially known as Spikenard oil. Spikenard oil of good quality has a greenish color and an odor suggestive of patchouli and Indian valerian (Valeriana officinalis L.), which has a sweet, woody, and spicy animal odor. It can be used in perfumes with an oriental basis, heavy florals, animal amber types, etc. It blends well with Cedarwood and Lavender. The oil reverts to a resinous state upon exposure to air.
