▎Essential Oil Introduction

Nutmeg (Myristica fragrans), which grows in tropical regions, is an evergreen tree commonly found in the South Pacific, Australia, and the Caribbean. It can reach heights of up to 20 meters. The fruit, with its fleshy pulp, is edible, and its seeds, when dried and ground, serve as a vital spice. The essential oil is also extracted from the fruit.

The fruit of nutmeg is frequently used as a spice, it contains myristicin, which can induce excitement and hallucinations. It is a toxic substance; consumption can lead to hallucinations, distorted perception of time and space, and a sense of euphoria beyond reality. It's reported that indigenous Africans often use nutmeg fruit to cope with physical ailments or mental distress, facilitating a swift entry into delightful dreams and a forgetting of their own pain. However, excessive consumption can easily lead to a state of coma. Nutmeg is also widely used in the cosmetics industry for the production of soap, shampoo, and perfume.
