Finding the Sacred Herb – Nard (Nardostachys Jatamansi)

“While the king sitteth at his table, my spikenard sendeth forth the smell thereof”
— Song of Songs 1:12 KJV

Nard, also known as Nardostachys Jatamansi, grows at an altitude of 3,000 – 5,000 feet in the Himalayan mountains. It has thousands of years of history dating back to ancient Israel, where it was recorded as being used for essential oils and also as a precious herbal medicine mentioned in the Bible’s Song of Solomon.

Nard essential oil boasts a wealth of medicinal and therapeutic benefits, such as easing stress and tension, relieving anxiety, insomnia, neurasthenia, epilepsy, and more. In the Bible, Mary of Bethany, sister of Lazarus, also used pure nard as a precious ointment to anoint Jesus’s feet and wiped them dry with her hair

Calming, Sleep-inducing Essential Oil Blend

The method of making nard essential oil was long lost in the Middle East due to incessant wars and population movements. Surprisingly, its unique formulation was passed down to the central Eurasian region, where the Uyghurs have preserved the practice of soothing the mind and body for restful sleep with Nardostachys essential oil. Martin M. Maiwulanjiang, an Uyghur researcher at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, brought this traditional medicinal formulation to Hong Kong. As a good friend of Martin, Dr. PIG®, also known as Dr. Gallant Chan, was fascinated by the herb’s remarkable sleep-enhancing properties compared to prescription sleeping pills. He worked tirelessly over this formula to develop what is now the CANTICLES® Nard Essential Oil, named after its use in the Song of Solomon.
