This amazing herb is called ‘Spikenard’ or ‘True Nard’ in English. Its from the Valerian family and is called ‘Nardostachys Jatamansi’. Once growing all over the earth, in recent centuries it almost went into extinction – found wild only in the higher mountains of asia.
It’s the stuff of legend – a lucky charm, a sacred symbol associated with love (the Song of Solomon in the Bible) and regeneration of dying and lost causes.
I have found it all absolutely true.
