Spikenard is a relaxing and soothing oil for the skin and mind; it's used as a sedative and calming agent. It's also a natural coolant, so it rids the mind of anger and aggression. It sedates feelings of depression and restlessness and can serve as a natural way to relieve stress.
When blending Spikenard oil with other essential oils, consider using woody or spicy oils like Clove, Frankincense, Juniper Berry, Myrrh, or Vetiver oil. Spikenard also pairs well with floral essential oils like Geranium, Lavender, and Rose.
