Nardostachys jatamansi or Spikenard or Narde as we commonly know it, is a aromatic and soft herb which has a rhizome root equally bitter and pungent to smell at. When it comes to the oil, a poorly distillated Narde is rather smoky and harsh smelling. The mountains of Japan and China and more abundantly the Northern Indian Mountains are the places where this is grown the most. Spikenard is a little known and used herb and oil in the modern times, yet it has been valuable for those who have an affinity for ancient oils.
As per the various historical sources, Spikenard essential oil was one of the early aromatics used by the ancient Egyptians. It is also mentioned in the Bible – in Solomon’s Song and in the Book of John – where Mary used it to anoint the feet of Jesus. It was a prized possession of wealthy Roman women for their uses in perfumes and cosmetic preparations.
The organically cultivated herb root of Narde is steam-distilled to produce a Golden colored sensual, joyful, exotic and lasting woody essence which is a very rare-to-find when done artistically. I am sure most Aroma-therapists across the globe have experienced and known the difference of how good the artfully distilled organic Spikenard essential oil smells when compared with a badly or casually distilled Narde essential oil. Such lasting aromatic organic Narde essential oil gives depth to any blend!
