Note: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants. Also, the brand should use 100% pure, high-quality essential oils that do not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask a trusted friend to find a brand that is reputable.
This oil is discussed in the Bible as the part of the unguent used by Mary Magdalene to anoint the feet of Jesus at the Last Supper. Based on this act, spikenard is steeped in historic symbolism.
It can be used by those working in hospices who care and treat patients that are very ill. I have created many products for personal use using spikenard - deodorant, bath salts, hair color oil, muscle relaxing liniment, meditation blend, study blend and as a digestive blend in capsules.
Spikenard (nardostachys jatamansi) works on the circulatory system as a blood purifier; on the muscular system as an analgesic, on the nervous system for anxiety, absentmindedness, claustrophobia, indecision, convulsions (epilepsy and hysteria), and on panic attacks.
It works for the digestive system as a digestive aid for flatulence, kidney stones and used to increase metabolism to reduce fat; on the hair as a hair tonic (makes the hair grow faster and also keeps your hair in its original color) and for dandruff.
It is also good topically for skin care to heal rashes, sooth snake and scorpion bites and rejuvenating mature skin; and on the psychology of coping with change, fear, sadness, self-criticism, tantrums, unforgiveness, and worry.
