Product Abstract

Spikenard oil has been deemed a highly valuable commodity and was treasured by nobility throughout the ages. It has been used for religious purposes in both the old and new testament –  Judaic priests would burn spikenard as a form of incense and use it as an offering and in the Catholic church, spikenard is used to represent Saint Joseph – Mary’s husband. However, in everyday, contemporary life spikenard still has a valuable role as an essential oil that is readily and easily available, affordable and very effective.


Also known as Nard and Musk Root, Spikenard was one of the early aromatics used by the ancient Egyptians and is mentioned in the Bible in The Song of Solomon, and in the Gospel Of John where Mary used it to anoint the feet of Jesus. It was used in ancient Rome in perfumes and beauty preparations.
