Product Overview

Our Nutmeg essential oil’s lively, highly aromatic aroma is light, fresh, warm, spicy-sweet, with a warm, woody drydown. Nutmeg oil is used in the perfume industry in “spicy” perfumes, men’s fragrances, after-shaves and lotions[3], and is an interesting and warm top note in floral blends.

Nutmeg is suitable for massage blends, joint rubs, in relaxing baths, and skincare preparations. In a diffuser, the aroma of Nutmeg encourages an ambiance of peace and comfort. It has been highly esteemed since the ancient civilizations of India and Egypt.[1] Myristica fragrans essential oil is distilled from the dried kernels of the fruit of this evergreen tree that originated in the Moluccas (historically known as the Spice Islands) of Indonesia. The trees are now found in various parts of Indonesia, Malaysia, India, Sri Lanka, and the Caribbean (especially Grenada).[2],[3]
