Nutmeg essential oil is obtained by steam-distilling the dried kernels of the ripe seeds of the nutmeg. This fruit is native to Moluccas Island, in an area also known as the Spice Islands, but is also grown in Java (Indonesia), Penang (Malaysia) and Sri Lanka.The evergreen tree from which nutmeg is derived also produces another type of spice: mace.Composition of Nutmeg Oil
There are several types of nutmeg oil and their compositions vary greatly depending on where the plant was cultivated. However, studies have shown similarities between the East Indian oils (those produced in Indonesia and other parts of Southeast Asia) and the West Indian samples (oils created in Grenada and the Caribbean).
The main constituents of nutmeg essential oil found in both varieties include sabiene, alpha-pinene, beta-pinene, myrcene, limonene, terpenes, safrole and myristicin.11 West Indian oils often have higher amounts of alpha-pinene, beta-pinene and sabiene (which comprise about 40 to 50 percent of the oil), but have low amounts of safrole and myristicin. On the other hand, East Indian oils have more myristicin content.
Benefits of Nutmeg Oil
Numerous studies have shown that nutmeg essential oil and its chemical compounds have beneficial properties that make it useful for the prevention of various conditions.
In one study,14 it was found that the nutmeg essential oil contained several phytochemicals, such as alkaloids, steroids, tannins, flavonoids, phenolics and glycosides. This finding demonstrated nutmeg oil's efficacy against various infectious diseases. Furthermore, nutmeg oil showed potent antimicrobial activity against the following infectious pathogenic strains: Bacillus subtilis, Escherichia coli and Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
