      Just read about spikenard being an expensive herb from the Himalyas harvested at altitudes of 15,000 feet. One writer suggests that Jesus' feet were anointed with such an ointment, although I haven't seen any other source that suggests that it was spikenard.

      I don't yet know what the Napali or Tibetan name for the herb is but plan to look it up sometime.

        Hi Allan,

        Spikenard is not overly expensive. You can buy it from Alchemy Works.
        It is a wonderful store with a very knowledgeable owner, but he tends
        to be very slow, such that you actually may think that he forgot about
        you. He also has some other ingredients that are hard to find.

        Just curious, what recipe are you trying to cook?

        Here is a link to his site:
