Spikenard is seriously such a lovely essential oil. It has a wonderful woody, spicy, and musty aroma and I am so glad that it is one of the new doTERRA® products this year! Spikenard is steam distilled from the roots of the flowering plant that is native to high altitudes in the sub-alpine regions of the Himalayan mountains. Spikenard is known to help uplift the mood and promote relaxation. It is also known to help promote clean, healthy skin, and be used in massage oils.
Spikenard is sourced in Nepal and is a part of the doTERRA Co-Impact Sourcing Initiative. Through this initiative, doTERRA is able to support much needed income streams for harvesters and partner distillers, particularly in the remote areas where it is harvested.
Here are some ways you can use Spikenard essential oil:
- Diffuse 3-4 drops to help promote feelings of relaxation and tranquility
- Add one drop to your facial moisturizer for anti-aging benefits
- Blend equal parts Spikenard, Wild Orange, and Juniper Berry for a cleansing and rejuvenating aroma
