Are you stressed and exhausted from adjusting to the back to school schedule? doTERRA Spikenard, a lesser known oil, is famous for its positive and calming effects on emotions and can be applied topically to promote youthful, glowing skin. Although it is an unlikely oil to diffuse, when blended with Frankincense and Lavender, Spikenard becomes a soothing woodland blend that can help manage your mood.

Today, it’s used in perfumes and massage oils for its woody, musty and deep aroma. Combine with your favorite moisturizer for soft, smooth, and hydrated skin.
Some potential ways to use Spikenard:

This lesser known oil packs a big punch and should be a staple in any home due to it’s powerful impact. What I also love about this oil is that it highlights the incredible co-impact sourcing that we’re doing in Nepal. Not only does this oil do incredible things for us as users, we’re helping provide economic value to the growers in Nepal and families put food on their table by working exclusively with them.
