You will understand why Jesus praised Mary of Bethany for anointing him with costly pure nard once you’ve indulged in its fragrance yourself. Revered for centuries, this precious oil from the Himalayas unleashes a deep sense of peace and is said to regulate the nervous system. Mary anointed the feet of Jesus with spikenard, wiping them with her hair; you can use it on your own hair to control dandruff or your skin to nourish and regenerate it. Bring this powerful essential oil from the wilds of Nepal to your life, and experience its highly regarded reputation as a calming, stabilizing, and anxiety-reducing oil.
