Nutmeg: Myristica fragrans (Houtt.)
Why nutmeg? Nutmeg aromatherapy essential oil is a flavoring favorite in the kitchen. Think seasonal cookies, grandma's rice pudding, or your favorite crème brûlée (it's even delicious on wilted greens). The essential oil has a similarly warm, spicy aroma, which makes it a favorite in seasonal blends, spicy perfumes, and men's products. Delicious!
Quality Assured: Our organic nutmeg essential oil is responsibly sourced from India. The essential oil is steam distilled from dried kernels of the ripe seeds. Every batch of oil is Certified Organic by Oregon Tilth and produced without the use of genetic engineering, artificial fertilizers, or pesticides. Additionally, our expert aromatherapists here at the Apothecary Shoppe personally assess all of our oils—using touch, taste, smell, and lab analyses—to ensure that your essential oil is suitable for use and entirely free of adulterants.
Independent third-party lab reports including GC/MS and pesticide testing results are available upon request. Please send a request to firstname.lastname@example.org and include the essential oil Latin name and lot number; results include a comparative analysis with ISO and the Pharmacopeia when available.
