A flowering plant of the Valerian family, Spikenard is native to high altitudes in the sub-alpine and alpine regions of the Himalayan mountains. One of the greatest benefits of Spikenard essential oil is its ability to promote feelings of relaxation and calmness, making it a popular choice for aromatherapy and meditation. Spikenard has been valued for centuries, traditionally used to anoint people of high honour and in the Ayurvedic health practices of India. Today, the oil is commonly used in perfumes and relaxing massages for its woody, musty scent. Spikenard is also known to promote clean, healthy skin.
