Nutmeg essential oil smells just like the spice used for seasonal dishes—warm, spicy, sweet, and woodsy. It’s a popular aroma that stirs the spirit and ignites the imagination, helping us engage in life with a full heart. Nutmeg essential oil can also spark the body’s energy, warming and comforting physical issues that feel cool, tight, sore, and tender. Dilute it well to protect skin in topical blends. Our wildcrafted nutmeg essential oil is steam distilled from the sun-dried seeds of tall trees in the tropical forests of Indonesia.
Benefits and uses
The rich, brown nuts from the Myristica fragrans tree create a sweet, spicy, warm, slightly woodsy essential oil.

This essential oil is also helpful when wanting to reduce the presence of unwelcome bacteria and fungus. Additionally, nutmeg essential oil can help improve overall circulation. Our nutmeg comes from Indonesia and is considered an East Indian nutmeg.
Emotionally and energetically, nutmeg essential oil is appreciated during times of situational depression and can help ease worry and improve negative thinking.
