Distilled from the seeds of Myristica fragrans, nutmeg essential oil is truly an expression of the greatly loved holiday spice. A very stimulating oil, more intense exposure has a reputation for prompting vivid dreams and can potentially be overstimulating if not carefully used.

Its spicy and sweet aroma brings with it the warming qualities known so well to us in the winter months. Just as the scent of spices permeating from fresh, holiday baking triggers a sense of comfort and happiness, nutmeg oil adds just that bit of coziness to a blend. Help loosen “stuck” energies and nervous attachments that can impede your ability to thrive. Embrace what life and the people in it have to offer.  Just a bit of nutmeg oil can appeal to emotional stagnation and set an aching heart on its path to wholeness.

Nutmeg pairs beautifully with other spice oils and sweet, juicy citrus oils that serve to create a classic sense of hearth and home. Add a  touch of vanilla or our cocoa absolute to round out any spicy blend containing nutmeg!

Nutmeg Essential Oil Safety Info

Our Nutmeg is the Eastern variety which is recommended for use at a 0.8% dilution or less. Nutmeg essential oil is psychotropic in high dose. As with all essential oils, Nutmeg should follow all of the precautions below. ~ Source:  Tisserand, Robert and Young, Rodney. Essential Oil Safety: A Guide for Health Care Professionals: Churchill Livingstone; 2 edition (December 2, 2013). AZW3 file  Some also recommend avoiding in pregnancy. Reading the full profile for Nutmeg Essential Oil is highly recommended by your DeRu Extracts staff.

While we’ve made this clear that we are selling this essential oil to use in your diffuser, your inhaler, or topically (diluted), it is a pure essential oil and can be used as such.  With all essential oils:

  • Never use them undiluted, in eyes or mucus membranes (this includes mouth, ear canals, noses, genital regions as well as internal areas).  The strength of essential oils can easily damage these soft tissue areas.
  • Do not take internally unless working with a qualified and expert practitioner.
    Keep away from children.
  • If applying an essential oil to your skin always perform a small patch test to an insensitive part of the body (after you have properly diluted the oil in an appropriate carrier).

  • Oral Safety is only given because many people have been told to take oils internally.  Because several people look to us for safety advice, we feel obligated to offer those safety statements, although we do not believe anyone should be ingesting essential oils without being guided by an expert.  Experts will take your medical history into account before they suggest oils for you to ingest, diffuse, or use topically.
