      We totally agree, Spikenard is a fabulous oil and it is a pitty that it is not as well known under the general public.

    High Quality Spikenard!

    I bought the 100ml primarily for Biblical reasons. My wife also bought an awesome diffuser however even if the essential oils she use are of high quality, either the essential oils are too sweet or too strong.

    Spikenard is earthy and relaxing. It is best used while I am studying and meditating. It is also great to help for sleep. Unlike other essential oils we used which requires two to three drops to be effective, this one only requires one drop. High quality indeed.

    I also like the sweet dreams, as it is obviously designed for sleeping 🙂
