Traditionally:

  • Nutmeg was used as a food flavoring (one I love to cook with) and medicinally.
  • Nutmeg has also long been known for its narcotic affect and is the first recorded hallucinogenic effect by Lobelius in 1576.
  • As an herbal medicine it has been known to be useful in ailments such as diarrhea, gastric spasms and flatulence

    This is a very potent oil and should be used sparingly, as it is know to over stimulate the heart and brain when used in excess.

    Note: the psychotropic effects associated with nutmeg are believed to be due the myristicin and elimicin found in nutmeg.

    Usages:

  • In blends a drop of nutmeg brings a sweetness with a spicy aphrodisiac note.
  • In massage it is an excellent oil because of its warming property for muscular aches & pains as well as rheumatism.
  • Known as a mental stimulant and an aid for general fatigue.

    Blends well with the sweet citrus oil as well as Geranium, Petitgrain, Ylang Ylang.

    EXTERNAL USE ONLY.
    Do not use undiluted on the skin.
