Spikenard, a flowering plant of the Valerian family, is native to high altitudes in the sub-alpine and alpine regions of the Himalayan mountains. Spikenard essential oil is steam distilled from the roots of the plant and has been valued for centuries, traditionally used to anoint people of high honour and in the Ayurvedic practices of India. Historically, Spikenard was used for its uplifting and relaxing qualities.

Spikenard promotes clean, healthy looking skin. Today, the oil is commonly used in perfumes and relaxing massage oils for its woody, musty scent. By sourcing Spikenard oil from Nepal, doTERRA is able to help support much needed income streams for harvesters and partner distillers, particularly in the remote areas where it is harvested, as well as support rural community development projects through our Co-Impact Sourcing® initiatives.
