Nutmeg, nutmeg, nutmeg. Another all around must have in my tool box of essential oils in the winter time. It has a spicy scent similar to clove and cinnamon. Like Sweet Orange, it has a brightening and uplifting effect, proven to work wonders at bringing light and warmth to the heaviness that can settle into the body in the darkest and shortest days of the year. It is a powerful oil, not to be taken lightly. Adding it to my roster of meal favorites is how I mainly imbibe Nutmeg.
Grating a pinch up and adding to pasta, quiches and my morning favorite, black tea with cream & honey. I love the lingering warm feeling in my belly and the kitchen.
