Mace Oil’s Composition

Mace essential oil is a very potent combination of wonderful compounds that elevate the goodness of the oil, notches higher. The oil is highly antiseptic in nature and is often recommended for preparing healthy and healing recipes.

It is thought that the ancients knew nutmeg and mace, but by the twelfth century, the spices had definitely reached the Mediterranean, brought by Arab traders. Not long after, the School of Salerno recorded the poisonous effect of using too much nutmeg; they praised its cardiac effects, but recorded haemorrhage and fatalities if used in large doses. ‘Unica nux prodest, nocet altera, tertia necat’ (One nut is good, another is less good, the third kills).

For years, both spices were the monopoly of first the Portuguese and then the Dutch, until Pierre Poivre smuggled some young trees from the Spice Islands. When the Moluccas were part of the British Empire, trees were transplanted to the West Indies, where they thrived.

In the eighteenth century, nutmeg and mace were included in French codices and in the nineteenth century, Pulligny wrote a book of876 pages entirely devoted to the nutmeg tree and its spices.

In folk medicine, carrying a nutmeg in the pocket is reputedly a cure for lumbago and rheumatism.

Nutmeg oil and mace oil both contain myristicine, with small quantities of -

  • Borneol
  • Camphene
  • Cymol
  • Dipentenegeraniol
  • Linalool
  • Pinene
  • Sapol
  • Terpineol
  • Acetic
  • Butyric
  • Caprilic
  • Formic
  • Myristic acids

The main producers of the oils are the USA, Canada and Singapore (of nutmeg respectively 20 – 30 tonnes, 5 – 10 tonnes, and 1 – 2 tonnes per year, 1987 figures). The USA is the largest consumer of nutmeg oil (30 tonnes), followed by Britain with 10 tonnes.

Nutmeg oil is steam-distilled from nuts crushed to a butter; oil from the islands is re-distilled in France to improve the quality. Mace is steam-distilled from the arils. Both oils are similar, very pale yellow and very fluid. Nutmeg smells spicy, pleasant and hot, mace very strongly spicy. Both oils change as they become old, turning dark brown and smelling disagreeable, acidic and turpentine-like – do not buy or use if like this.

The Romans used Nutmeg to make incense.

Nutmeg was considered to be a valuable spice for trading; both the British and the French smuggled Nutmeg seeds in the eighteenth century. By the nineteenth century, ground Nutmeg was being used in many English recipes; it became a popular addition to Christmas eggnog in the United States.

Nutmeg oil is obtained from the kernel of the fruit and the outer layer of the fruit also produces another spice called mace; nutmeg essential oil is extracted by steam distillation of the kernel seed. Nutmeg oil is primarily made up of the chemical component of monoterpenes hydrocarbons (including camphene, dipentene, pinene, sabinene and cymene) but also includes geraniol, borneol and linalol.

Nutmeg oil has a warm, spicy, sharp aroma; it has a number of properties such as analgesic, antiseptic, digestive, an aphrodisiac, stimulant, tonic and anti-oxidant. In aromatherapy, nutmeg is used in the treatment of a number of conditions; it is used to treat -

  • Arthritis

  • Indigestion
  • Constipation
  • Flatulence

Nutmeg is also used as a flavoring agent in pharmaceuticals; it is used in soaps, cosmetics, perfumes, detergents and lotions. Mace oil is also used interchangeably with nutmeg and is found in many colognes and perfumes, particularly fragrances for men; mace is also found in many foods and drinks, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic.

Fragrant rich nutmeg is one of the highly prized spices known since antiquity for its aromatic, aphrodisiac, and curative properties. Nutmegs are evergreen trees, native to the rain forest Indonesian Moluccas Island, also known as the Spice Islands.

Botanically, the plant belongs to Myristicaceae family and known as Myristica fragrans. Several species grown all over the world other than Myristica species, such as M. argentea, M. malabarica (Indian), and M. fatua, are rather similar to M. fragrans in appearance; however, they have less intense flavor and aroma.

The spice tree is a large evergreen plant that thrives well under tropical climates. A fully-grown tree reaches about 50-60 feet in height and is the source of nutmeg and mace, two valuable spices. The nutmeg fruit, in fact, is a drupe, about the size of an apricot, which when ripen splits up to reveal single centrally situated oval shaped hard kernel known as “nutmeg spice”. The seed is closely enveloped by crimson-red colored lacy or thread like arils known as “mace”. Both spices have similar warm, sweet aromatic flavor.

Mace Oil – Info Barrel

What I read was that the spice mace has a similar flavor to nutmeg and is made from the outer covering of the nutmeg shell…Although the spices come from the same plant…mace is more expensive due to lower-yield volume…Mace is more potent then nutmeg and is often used as a nutmeg substitute in lesser quantities…Like nutmeg…mace contains the essential oils

  • Myristicin
  • Elemicin

And even are mildly hallucinogenic in large quantities…Historically…mace was used to aid digestion…stimulate appetite…relieve nausea and treat aches and pains
I’ll tell you certain facts about it…

Nutmeg has been and still is considered to be a useful medicine in a number of Asian societies….Also among the Arabs it has been used to treat digestive problems and highly  valued as an aphrodisiac….that basically is…it creates the initial spark to make you go down to do the real act…In clearer language…it turns you on…rather…it has the ability to do so…

Indians used it to combat asthma and heart complaints and still use it as a sedative….you know something that just eases you down…soothes you…

Coming back to its property of it being an aphrodisiac…Nicholas Culpeper (1616-54)…the famous English herbalist…attributes to nutmeg the capacity to induce sleep delirium…Also…William Salmon…on the other hand…said that the oil of mace or nutmegs…if rubbed on the genitals…instigated one to be turned on (remember the Arabs’ use of its aphrodisiac qualities)…

It was considered to be having kind of magical properties and is also one of the ingredients of a magical perfume described in the most famous of all the grimoires…or black books of the sorcerers…The Key of Solomon the King….The use of nutmeg as a magical medicine continued far into the twentieth century in England….It was a certain belief that carrying nutmeg in the pocket could cure various complaints has been recorded from various parts of the country….

Note this…In places like Yorkshire it was considered as the best way to relieve rheumatic pain…in Lincolnshire it was said to cure backache and in Devon it was eaten to clear up boils…Elsewhere it was used by gardeners as a prophylactic measure against the occupational hazard of backache….Wow! I am always a victim of it…of great use to me at least…

Anyway…As late as 1966 a Hampshire coalman who suffered from lumbago was told to carry nutmeg…and when he did so he swore he never suffered from it again…Nutmeg was also believed to be lucky in gambling…There was this  newspaper article from the mid-1960s that apparently reported that an individual sprinkled nutmeg powder on their football pools coupon and…on the advice of a gypsy…left it for twenty-four hours before posting it….

Although Mace essential oil has been demoted to a ‘pseudo-hallucinogen’ by many authorities, a self-experiment by Paul Devereux…a writer on the alignments of prehistoric sites…seems to indicate that its psychoactive effects can nevertheless be quite dramatic… In July 1989 Devereux took two level teaspoons of ground nutmeg and then went to bed…sprinkling nutmeg essential oil on his pillow and sheets…When he had been asleep for a few hours he had a dream in which he was travelling down a tunnel and flying at ever increasing speeds. He became fully conscious when in full flight and travelled over a landscape. During the flight he passed close to a tree and snatched at its leaves…feeling ‘the pull of the branches and the foliage digging into my hand’….In other words the tactile sense was fully operative. He decided to terminate the journey by retracing his path and arriving back at his starting point…and opened his eyes…His hallucinations were thus both visual and tactile but he experienced no auditory or olfactory sensations during the experience…Isn’t that eerie…yet interesting?
