Method of Extraction: The dried ripe seed of the fruit of an evergreen tree.
There are two main types of nutmeg; East Indian type, from Indonesia and Sri Lanka, and West Indian nutmeg, grown particularly in Grenada. The former is preferred for its higher aromatic value and richer body. Nutmeg is the dried ripe seed of the fruit of an evergreen tree. The husk of the seed is Mace, which can also be used to produce Mace essential oil. Nutmeg essential oil is complex to produce because a large proportion of the oil is fixed oil as opposed to essential oil. Great skill is therefore required in the production, which is reflected in the excellent quality of this Indonesian oil selected by Absolute Aromas.
Do not use Nutmeg during pregnancy.
Add 1 drop each of Nutmeg and Cinnamon Leaf and 3 drops of Mandarin to the water in an oil burner to create a wonderful, spicy room fragrance over the Festive season.
For a warming bath on a cold winter's night, blend 1 drop each of Nutmeg, Benzoin and Geranium in 10ml of Peach Kernel oil, add to the water and soak in it for 10 minutes.
Absolute Aromas sources, professionally packages and presents over 100 pure essential oils, 22 carrier oils and a wide range of aromatherapy accessories of the highest possible quality.
Each essential oil is sourced from established producers in the best country of origin for that particular oil. Every batch is subjected to rigorous testing by an experienced and qualified essential oils chemist, using methods such as gas chromatography.
The same strict standards are applied to the rest of the Absolute Aromas range. Carrier oils are, wherever possible, organically-produced, cold-pressed and of the freshest quality. The specialist infused carrier oils are hand-made using organically-produced plant material infused in organic Sesame oil. We believe that as carrier oils usually make up 98% of an aromatherapy blend, their quality has a very significant impact on the efficiency of the blend.
