Words by Anny Schneider

Nard oil from the Himalayas is extracted from the root of this plant growing in the high mountains of Nepal.

From Egypt to ancient Greece, from Dioscoride to Pliny, not to mention the Bible of the two testaments, it is found as a major ingredient in several sacred oils. 

Nard is a cousin of our "Valium végétal" valerian.

Its woody and musky fragrance soothes the nervous system and calms spasms of all kinds.

It soothes and soothes in case of excessive tension. 

Mixed with a fluid vegetable oil, it relieves itching of the scalp and/or those of the skin in general.

Origin of this essential oil

This organic essential oil of Himalayan spikenard from Nepal is distilled from the rhizomes of the plant.

Suggestions for use

The essential oil of the Himalayan Nard, Nardostachys jatamansi, is a plant of the family Valerianaceae native to the Himalayan mountains of India, Nepal and Tibet.

In Ayurvedic traditional medicine beyond its earthy scent, it is often used in synergy, for its calming and soothing virtues.

This oil is known to promote emotional balance, relieve emotional shocks, nervous tension, migraines and act on some psoriasis.

In India, diluted in mustard oil, it is known to promote the regrowth of hair. Nard is a noble oil, used in many rituals and rites of passage, mentioned in several sacred texts, including the Bible.

 It helps to more easily accept the inevitable changes that punctuate each life, including its end.


Keep away from children, air, heat and light.
