Floral Accent - Green

You know the aroma of nutmeg; maybe it makes you crave spice cake or eggnog. But nutmeg oil has many therapeutic properties as well. In traditional medicine, the essential oil was used to treat disorders related to the nervous and digestive systems. Those are still common usages. Rub it mixed with a carrier oil into your belly to relieve indigestion and all its nasty symptoms. If inflammation rears its ugly head in your body, a nutmeg-and-oil massage can reduce pain and stiffness.

RECIPES

Nutmeg Blend Relief

3 drops nutmeg

2 drops ginger CO2 extract

4 drops sweet marjoram

2 drops peppermint

1 oz. unscented lotion or 1 oz. jojoba (use unscented lotion for digestive issues and use jojoba for muscle and joint pain)

Directions:

If you are using the recipe for digestive issues, blend all the essential oils above with unscented lotion instead of jojoba. The lotion absorbs into the skin faster, so you can get faster relief (acute issues)!

If you are using the recipe above for muscle or joint pain, blend all the essential oils above with jojoba instead of unscented lotion. The jojoba stays on the skin longer – slower absorption for chronic issues.

Gently rub onto affected area.

 

SAFETY

The use of the oil on the skin is considered safe at low dilutions: 0.8% for East Indian Nutmeg oil, and 5% for West Indian one, which has lower levels of safrole and methyleugenol. Nutmeg can irritate the skin when oxidized, and also if used in higher dilutions, as it is a hot oil. Some sources suggest avoiding the use of Nutmeg oil during pregnancy.

If pregnant, nursing or under a doctor’s care, consult your physician or clinical certified aromatherapist. For external use only. Keep away from mucous membranes & eyes. Test a small amount on skin for allergic reaction. Keep out of reach of children. Avoid using on infants and small children under the age of five.

Always dilute essential oils with a carrier oil.
