Nutmeg essential oil (Myristica Fragrans) is the symbol for Iranian Sufis of the man in search of God, wrapped in his pilgrim’s cloak. It is an oil that has always had a place of honour in the kitchen. It was once prescribed as an aphrodisiac.

- Room diffuser: 1 to 2 drops in 100 ml of water. We suggest combining it with other essential oils.
- Bath: 5 to 7 drops of essential oil emulsified in coarse salt, milk, cream, or honey in hot water (this prevents the oil from evaporating due to the heat).
- Massage: we recommend diluting 1/2 drops of essential oil in a tablespoon of carrier oil.
- Culinary use: we recommend 1 drop for every 3 to 400 ml of food to be flavoured and added at the end of cooking (we suggest you always start with the lowest recommended dose and increase the drops in the future). This essential oil also goes very well in certain cocktails.
Warnings: Always use in moderation. Do not use in case of chronic diseases, during pregnancy and lactation. If in doubt, consult a doctor/naturopath.
