Spikenard – Nardostachys jatamansi – is a very special oil extracted from a flowering plant that grows in the Himalayas. It is an intensely aromatic amber-coloured essential oil distilled from the root/underground stems. Our oil is pure and natural and comes from Nepal. Spikenard oil from Nepal is considered the finest in the world.
In ancient times this oil was used as an anointing oil in religious ceremonies, as perfume and also as a traditional medicine. It is known as nard oil and was coveted and very expensive at the time. Other names for it is nardin or muskroot and means “light”. It is believed that when you allow the aroma into your house you are “turning on the light”. In religious connotations it would be turning on the “light“ inside of you hence it’s use as an anointing oil.
This is the oil that Mary anointed Jesus’s feet before the last supper in the Bible. That’s why the others were so appalled at her ‘wasting’ such a valuable oil.
I never understood why they freaked out about it but now I know. Spikenard has so many benefits. Every woman should have this in her home.
