Nutmeg Essential Oil, derived through the steam distillation of nutmeg seeds, presents as a clear to yellow liquid with a sharp, spicy, and sweet scent. Extracted from the evergreen nutmeg tree, which can reach up to 20 meters in height, this oil complements various blends with Peru balsam, geranium, clary sage, petitgrain, coriander, and orange. Native to the Malaku islands, nutmeg has a greyish-brown smooth bark, dense foliage, and small yellow flowers.
