Nutmeg essential oil: benefits and how to use it

Material for nutmeg essential oil

Nutmeg essential oil is made from the distillation of nutmeg. The raw materials for making this oil are fruit flesh, skin covering the seeds (mace), and nutmeg seeds.

However, the essential oil content is more in the mace. The best fruit is three months old young nutmeg. At that age, the essential oil produced reaches 15%. In order for the nutmeg seeds to dry quickly, the harvested fruit is dried first, then separate the seeds from the flesh.

Next, the seeds are gouged to separate from the flesh. If it’s still sticking hard, soak the halves until the flesh is soft and easy to separate.

The process of making nutmeg oil is done by distillation. The distillation process begins with adding water first to the desired limit. In water and steam distillation, water is added to near the nesting point.

Next, put the ingredients into the kettle. Before starting the distillation process, make sure that all connections, inlet and outlet holes are tightly closed. This is important to do to avoid leaks that result in the release of wild bursts of steam and the wasting of volatile steam.
