Spikenard Essential Oil

This earthy fragrance helps the spirit to make peace with wrong choices of the past. Its fragrance is calming and so is often incorporated into meditation oils (for some it can be strongly sedating). However, it is also often a part of love charms and sex magick (which puts an interesting spin on the woman who anointed Jesus' feet with it). Its scent is earthy and for that reason (and because it comes from a root), its perfume is considered to be Earth. But the phoenix was believed to build its nest of cinammon, myrrh, and spikenard, so try it in an oil for Fire or Sun magick or for works involving resurrection. Logically enough, it is also associated with the Hanged Man in the Tarot. Spikenard smells musty at first and then dries to a sweet woody and spicy fragrance reminiscent of animal odor. Steam-distilled from Nardostachys jatamansi in India. Top

Combining With Other Essential Oils

The fragrance of spikenard combines well with the natural scents of clary sage, clove, cypress, frankincense, geranium, juniper, lavender, lemon, myrrh, palmarosa, patchouli, pine, rose, and vetiver. Top
