Spikenard Oil

Nardostachys jatamansi

Our organically crafted spikenard essential oil is produced from sustainably wildcrafted roots of a plant in the Valerian family that grows high in the Himalayan Mountains of Nepal. These plants come from a forest that is carefully managed by the Nepalese government. Globally, there is considerable debate whether spikenard essential oil should be produced at all since the plant is now on the critically endangered species list. Currently, we have decided to continue sourcing this oil from our distiller in Nepal due to the careful, sustainable way they go about harvesting the roots from live plants in a rotation that does not hurt or damage the life cycle of the plant. Since we know where our spikenard oil comes from and that it is sustainably produced, we are honored to be able to offer this precious essential oil. However, in order to help preserve these amazing plants as much as possible, we choose to use our spikenard essential oil rarely and sparingly.

Benefits and uses

This essential oil is on our sustainability watch list. We are incredibly fortunate to work with a distiller who is passionate about taking every measure to ensure that their spikenard essential oil is produced sustainably. Our distiller only distills oil from small parts of living plants that are intentionally harvested every few years, in a rotation, to ensure the continued life of a healthy, thriving ecosystem.

The roots of the Nardostachys jatamansi plant create a sweet, earthy, woodsy, slightly spicy essential oil. Spikenard essential oil is a beautiful oil to use when looking to reduce unwanted muscle spasms. This essential oil is also highly sought after when wanting to manage minor pain and inflammation, as it is incredibly soothing and comforting.

Emotionally and energetically, spikenard essential oil calms the heart, stabilizes the mind, and helps balance during emotionally turbulent times.
