Spikenard Essential Oil Wildcrafted
Spikenard: Nardostachys jatamansi (DC.)
Why spikenard? In antiquity, spikenard was highly prized for its root. Richly aromatic, the aromatherapy essential oil has warm and spicy undertones, wonderful in earthy perfume blends. Many people also find the complex aroma soothing or relaxing.
Quality Assured: The spikenard aromatherapy essential oil is sustainably wildcrafted and sourced from Northern India. The essential oil is steam distilled from the rhizome and roots. Additionally, our expert aromatherapists here at the Apothecary Shoppe personally assess all of our oils—using touch, taste, smell, and lab analyses—to ensure that your essential oil is suitable for use and entirely free of adulterants.
