Nutmeg Oil

Myristica fragrans

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. Along with helping to support healthy digestion, nutmeg essential oil can also be a tremendous support when looking to manage minor pain and inflammation as well as help ease unwanted muscle spasms. 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.
