  • Native Country: Indonesia, Sri Lanka and rare in India
  • Parts Used: dried seeds
  • Extraction Method: Steam Distilled

Uses: This warming spicy essential oil is used in aromatherapy to fight inflammations and muscle as well as rheumatic pain, while assisting the digestive system and supporting the reproductive system, and at the same time stimulating and invigorating the mind. Its aromatherapy uses are generally related to muscular aches and pains.

Description: It is an evergreen tree that grows up to 20 meters (65 feet) with dense foliage and small dull-yellow flowers. The fruit resembles a small peach and the oil is obtained from the kernel of the seeds. The oil is steam distilled from the worm-eaten nutmeg seed to obtain a sweet, warm-spicy essence with a terpene-like top note. Nutmeg oil from Sri Lanka and Indonesia is considered superior.
