Spikenard Essential Oil


Shipping to United States: Free

Spikenard Essential Oil is a base note with a strong aroma with an earthy woody mysterious smell. At times slightly musty it has a distinctly leathery undertone.

It is one of the early aromatics used by the ancient Egyptians and mentioned in the Bible in 'Song of Solomon', and in the 'Book of John' where Mary used it to anoint the feet of Jesus before the last supper "Then took Mary a pound of ointment of spikenard, very costly, and anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped his feet with her hair, and the house was filled with the odor of the ointment."

Spikenard was also used by Roman perfumers in the preparation of nardinum,one of their most celebrated scented oils. Can be used as a substitute for Valerian oil. Often used during a spiritual quest and during meditation, in order to bring one closer to their diety. Spikenard is a wonderful complement to any relaxation routine.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are your Oils 100% Pure?

Yes, all of my Essential Oils are 100% pure with no additives. Listings will state clearly if the oil is a blend.

US and International orders come with tracking and can be found on your Etsy receipt.
