Authentic Athos spikenard myrrh, produced by the monks of Vigla of the Holy Cell of St. Archangels of Hilandar Monastery on Mount Athos according to their own special technology.
In the original Greek Gospel text, the myrrh is designated by the word "μύρον". This word can be translated not only as "myrrh", but also in a broader sense as "incense". In the Gospel according to John (12:3) it is said: "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 odour of the ointment". And so, this Athos oil made from spikenard is also a myrrh.
Christians anoint their foreheads and sore spots crosswise with the spikenard myrrh to heal physical and spiritual ailments. It is believed that it protects from misfortune. Therefore, it is very important to have spikenard oil in your home as a symbol of the grace and love of our Lord.
The oil is composed only of natural ingredients, and the production process is invariably accompanied by prayer. In addition to its symbolic value, the oil contains antioxidants and has antimicrobial, tonic and wound healing properties.
The oil can be used for prayer or as an aromatic remedy. Thanks to the special packaging with a roll-on dispenser it is convenient to apply to the body.
