Spikenard Essential Oil (Nardostachys jatamansi) - India

Scents of Earth $15.00

Spikenard essential oil (Nardostachys jatamansi) - Select Green is wild harvested from India. Spikenard oil's rich, mysterious, earthy constituents mingle with a soft warm spiciness, a balm to the heart and soul. It captures in itself 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.

The jatamansi species is harvested for local use as well as for the trade of its valuable roots/rhizomes as 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 jatamansi species 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 bases, heavy florals, animal amber types, and attempts to revert to a resinous form upon long exposure to air.
