Traditional Uses:
One of the most costly and precious of all aromatics in ancient times.
A detailed account of Mary Magdalene's use of Spikenard is found in the Bible.
'Mary brought in a pound of very costly ointment, pure nard,
and with it anointed the feet of Jesus,
wiping them clear with her hair,
the house was full of the scent of the ointment.'
Dioscordes suggests that the herb is 'warming and drying'.
Other Uses:
According to Gumbel, Spikenard is the ultimate essential oil to find inner balance in the emotional, spiritual and physical interplay of energies. He also suggests that Spikenard may have similar sedative properties to that of valerian.
Kurt Schnaubelt recommends rubbing Spikenard over the heart or the solar plexus to provide a sedative effect.
Worwood has said that Spikenard may be used to encourage forgiveness, reduce fearfulness and to instill calm and balance.
