Spikenard Oil

Spikenard, a flowering plant belonging to the Valerian family, thrives in the high altitudes of the sub-alpine and alpine regions of the Himalayan mountains. The essential oil derived from Spikenard is obtained through steam distillation of its roots and has held significant value for centuries. Traditionally, it was employed to anoint individuals of high honor and played a role in Ayurvedic health practices in India. Throughout history, Spikenard was renowned for its ability to uplift mood and induce relaxation, as well as for promoting clean and healthy skin.

In contemporary use, Spikenard essential oil is commonly incorporated into perfumes and massage oils, appreciated for its distinctive woody and musty fragrance. Through the strategic sourcing of Spikenard oil from Nepal, dōTERRA contributes to vital income streams for harvesters and partner distillers, especially in remote harvesting areas. Additionally, this sourcing approach supports essential rural community development projects through the Cō-Impact Sourcing® initiatives.

Details of the product include the extraction method (steam distillation), the aromatic description (woody, spicy, musty), and the main chemical components (Jatamansone, gurjunene). The product itself is identified as Spikenard (Nardostachys jatamansi) in a 5 mL volume, with a unique code (49510001).
