History: Used since ancient times as an anointing oil in the Near East, being mentioned in Egyptian perfume texts and Biblical texts. It was also used in Roman perfumery – the preparation being known as nardinium, as well as being used to flavour wine. During the Middle Ages, it was a highly prized commodity, being traded for its weight in gold in many instances. A Mughal Empress called Nur Jehan in the 16th Century used Spikenard in her skincare regime. It was also used in traditional Ayurvedic medicine in India to treat skin conditions and encourage healthy hair growth.
