Product Abstract: Spikenard is a soft, aromatic herb with a strongly pungent rhizome root. It is native to the mountainous regions of Northern India, as well as China and Japan. 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. It was also used in culinary recipes from Roman times throughout the Middle Ages, and was used to spice wine and beer.

I had never smelled spikenard before, and wanted to get it because it was mentioned in the Bible and I wanted a greater spiritual connection to my faith. Well...in the bottle, it smells like a mix of camphor and the moldy smell I get when I leave my clothes in the washer for several days. Not too surprising, since it's related to Valerian, another plant with roots that smell of stinky feet. But once it's on the skin, it dries to a very deep woodsy scent. It reminds me of sandalwood without a hint of sweetness, or a dry, wooden sauna. Still retains some of the mold odor, but it would probably do much better in a fragrance blend, and others might not mind it so much. Aside from the scent, it seems potent; I think those who want the oil for therapeutic rather than fragrance purposes, or who want a cheaper, natural, and more ethical alternative to sandalwood for scent may be very pleased.

If you are a migraine sufferer, Spikenard is a must. The price is a little high, but for the relief I gain, it's worth it.

What a glorious Spikenard this is! It's almost leathery, "I-need-to-ride-my-Arabian Steed-off-into-the-Desert-sunset" headiness is perfect for my Perfume. I give it 100!
