Spikenard:- Narostachys Jatamasi
The health benefits of Spikenard Essential Oil can be attributed to its properties as an antibacterial, anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, deodorant, laxative, sedative and uterine substance. The traditional use of this plant was for the skin and female reproductive organs such as the uterus and ovaries. Due to its earthy and somewhat wet, soil-like smell, which resembles the smell of moss, it is also used in aromatherapy as a sedative and calming agent. This plant is very famous on the Indian Subcontinent by the name of Jatamansi and is widely used in herbal medicines.
From a spiritual aspect, it is believed to inspire devotion and to add inner peace.
