Nutmeg Essential oil is steam distilled from the seeds of the Myristica fragrans plant. This plant mostly grows in Indonesia, Sri Lanka and India.

It has almost a warm, fresh, woody, spicy and pine-like aroma. Using it in Aromatherapy can have a hypnotic, uplifting effect and it is known to enhance imagination.

Fun Fact: Nostradamus used Nutmeg to enter deep trances for prophetic visions.

Energetically, it invigorates and stimulates the mind and can produce intense colourful dreams.

Safety Information : 

Nutmeg can irritate the skin when oxidized, and also if used in higher dilutions, as it is a hot oil. 

How to use:

 When blending Essential Oils please keep in mind the dilution ratio, 3 to 5% dilution in a base or carrier oil, refer to the attached dilution chart in the link below to understand the number of drops.
For Facial Skin – 0.7 to 2%

Body Massage – 1.5 to 3%
Pain Relief – 5 – 7%
(To make it easier mix about 50 drops of the Essential Oil in 50 ml of carrier oil for pain relief)

Few things you should know

  • Fragrance oils aren’t Essential Oils (read labels carefully)
  • Essential Oils are high concentrated, use them sparingly and carefully
  • When Pregnant skip Essential oil usage, especially in the first trimester
  • Always do a patch test, if you are allergic to the plant – you will be allergic to the EO
  • Make sure you are using high quality 100% Pure Essential Oils
  • Keep Essential Oils away from direct heat and sunlight and they can last over years!
  • It’s perfectly fine to be confused when using EO’s the first time, reach out to people to clear your doubts

    The thumb rule to keep in mind for all Essential Oil usage is the dilution should be kept at 3%. Essential Oils are very strong and potent and should be used sparingly. Please maintain caution on usage.
