Different but Wonderful
Smells a bit different for sure. At first I thought I had made a mistake. But if you put in a diffuser with any of your other favorites, it compliments and comes alive with intoxicating scentsDry SkinHydrationSoothingAll Skin Types10 November 2022Tiffany Steiner
Similar but not quite "perfect"
in 2004, I found a tiny 5ml bottle of spikenard from an ashram in India (Oshadhi brand) while on a visit to an aunt in South Carolina..at a Beaufort health food store. It was at that time over $30. I still have a few drops left, and periodically open the bottle to inhale it, as there is something about it that reminds me of when the woman anointed the feet of Jesus, in the Bible story. . .but it's more than that...it's a quality. I cannot define with words. That product has been unavailable for some time, and I often search for a replacement. . .I decided to try this brand, GyaLabs.. .1/3 oz. The price seemed cheap by comparison. . .however, the scent is similar, but also seems (to my oversensitive nose) to have elements of sandalwood to it, and is much thinner than the more viscous, resinous Oshadi...I don't use it for pain...I have used it, with a drop or 2 of frankinsence, to blend into my hair before sleep. . .don't know why, but that's me. My only complaint about all of these oils is the stopper. . .I wish they would come with a little eye dropper..fortunately I have saved little droppers from other products that fit the Aura Cacia bottles, as I use Rosemary and Marjoram oils, with oregano oil to make a blend of ghee and olive oil spread. But overall, I am happy with this spikenard, and am not optimistic that it will last almost 20 years, as the other has!! But then, I won't use it as skimpily as I have that, since there seems to be a source for it now.....although N. jatamansi, native to the Alpine Himalayas, is a critically endangered, rhizome-bearing plant that grows best at high altitudes (3,000 to 5,000 m) so depending upon how "green" the world goes, many plants may be endangered..although there is always hydroponics, though I've never heard of this plant being grown that way....Dry SkinHydrationSoothingAll Skin Types29 October 2022Anna
Wanted to know what spikenard smelt like after reading about it in the Bible. Used it in a sermon to let the congregation know what it smelled like as wellâ€¦Dry SkinHydrationSoothingAll Skin Types25 July 2022Clydej
