Spikenard Essential Oil



Spikenard essential oil was a very precious oil in ancient times, used only by priests or initiates. It is recorded in the Bible that Mary of Bethany used oil of spikenard to anoint the feet of Jesus:

"Then took Mary a pound of ointment of spikenard, very costly, and anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped his feet with her hair; and the house was filled with the odor of the ointment."

Joseph 12:3

Anointment by spikenard was an honor afforded only to those held in high regard.
