Spikenard G I FT FR O M T H E PEAK S On April 25, 2015, Nepal experienced a devastating earthquake that killed almost 9,000 people and injured nearly 22,000. The earthquake had a magnitude of 7.8Mw or 8.1Ms and a maximum Mercalli Intensity of IX (Violent). “Spikenard was an oil that we had on our radar for quite some time,” said Jared Moon, do-TERRA Strategic Sourcing Manager. “So we added it to our post- earthquake economic impact efforts.” Spikenard is a primitive oil that has been used for centuries in Ayurvedic practices for benefits such as mental clarity and grounding, as well as helping skin and hair health. Spikenard is a great addition to our collection. The exciting thing about Spikenard is that it is being produced and harvested in areas completely separate from Wintergreen. 30 / SUMMER 2017 LIVING MAGAZINE
