The seeds of the evergreen myristica fragrans tree, native to south-east Asia, are steam-distilled to produce the pale yellow oil which has countless applications in aromatherapy. Its aroma is similar to the culinary spice but richer and more fragrant, with spicy, sweet and woody notes.
Organic nutmeg oil is a valuable addition to your essential oils collection, although a little of this powerful fragrance goes a long way. When blended with oils such as lavender, clary sage and geranium, nutmeg adds warmth and spice.
