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.
