Steam distilled from the root of Nardostachys jatamansi, a flowering plant of the Valerian family, Spikenard is also called nard, nardin, muskroot, or false Indian valerian root. In ancient times, this aromatic oil was heavily used in perfumery and in religious context in India, Middle East, and Europe. It was also commonly used in both Eastern and Ayurvedic medicine.
Today, Spikenard is a favourite among the yogis, aromatherapists, and massage therapists for its grounding properties as well as its ability to promote calmness and relaxation. If you're having a hard time coping with a busy life, diffuse or apply topically for a fragrant and natural way to relax.
Regarded as a luxurious perfume by the ancient Egyptians and Romans, Spikenard essential oil is known for its deeply woody, musky, and earthy scent. Combine with Clove, Cypress, Frankincense, Geranium, Juniper Berry, Lavender, Myrrh, Wild Orange, Rose, and Vetiver to blend your own personalised fragrances!
