  • Safety/Caution
  • Nutmeg Essential Oil is derived from an evergreen tree capable of growing 20 meters in height. It produces a fleshy red fruit that is then dried. The exterior husk is dried and produces Mace, while the seeds produce Nutmeg. It has been prized as a culinary spice in ancient China, for embalming by the ancient Egyptians, and by the 8th century was commonly used in Britain. In the 12th century, Hildegard of Bingen cited it in her herbal, the first known textbook on the medicinal use of herbs. Today it is used by the food and cosmetics industries, as well as aromatherapists and naturopathic practitioners.

Beautiful product, very happy with the actual product and with the time frame of arrival

Happy with Jojoba

very happy with the purchase, arrived as indicated,

Excellent quality

Lovely scent of lavender and beautiful colour. Will order again.

Very smooth

Very nice size and quality; I liked that there were some pebble sized pieces along with the larger chunks. Although it didn’t have that deep cocoa smell I expected, it melts nicely, and sets up and stays that way.
