of use for its therapeutic health properties, and as a natural flavoring for meals, sweets and baked products.

properties. It may be useful to relieve muscle pain, joint inflammation and menstrual cramps when used topically.Its anti-microbial properties make
it an effective oil to eliminate bad breath, relieve tooth pain and treat dental and gum infections.
When used aromatically, nutmeg oil has a calming effect which may help to relieve anxiety and stress and promote good quality sleep.
