Nutmeg oil has a nutty, spicy and woody aroma, and is pale yellow in colour. It is extracted from the seed of the nutmeg plant using steam distillation.
Nutmeg oil has many applications, but is perhaps most commonly used to aid with pain relief relating to muscles and joints. When vaporised the aroma is reported to reduce mood swings, decrease stress, clear the mind and enhance concentration.
It is also often used to combat bad breath by neutralising odours at source.
