Spikenard, also called nard, nardin, and muskroot, is a class of aromatic amber-colored essential oil derived from Nardostachys jatamansi, a flowering plant of the valerian family which grows in the Himalayas of Nepal, China, and India. The oil has been used over centuries as a perfume, a traditional medicine, or in religious ceremonies across a wide territory from India to Europe.

Spikenard (John 12:3) Anointing Blend is a part of our Ageless Anointing Oils Pack, and is effective for tension, stress, migraine, nervous indigestion and insomnia. It seems to have rejuvenating qualities especially for mature skin, and can help with allergies, skin inflammations and rashes.

In Song of Solomon 4:13 -16 we read:

13 Thy plants are an orchard of pomegranates, with pleasant fruits; camphire, with spikenard,
14 Spikenard and saffron; calamus and cinnamon, with all trees of frankincense; myrrh and aloes, with all the chief spices:
15 A fountain of gardens, a well of living waters, and streams from Lebanon.
16 Awake, O north wind; and come, thou south; blow upon my garden, that the spices thereof may flow out. Let my beloved come into his garden, and eat his pleasant fruits.

As the Easter celebration commences, let’s look at how Spikenard was used in the time of the Passover:

Mark 14 verse 3 & 8

3 And being in Bethany in the house of Simon the leper, as he sat at meat, there came a woman having an alabaster box of ointment of spikenard very precious; and she brake the box, and poured it on his head.
8 She hath done what she could: she is come aforehand to anoint my body to the burying.

John 12:3

Then took Mary a pound of ointment of spikenard, very costly, and anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped his feet with her hair: and the house was filled with the odour of the ointment.
