Meeting With Mace Essential Oil

Does anyone of you have the slightest of idea as to what all we are flushed with on this earth?

Frankly even I was amongst the ones who used to watch movies like ‘Anaconda’ and maybe ‘Alice in Wonderland’ and even Discovery channel and kept wondering of the kind of vegetation that grew on earth thousands of years ago…the magical herbs it bore that would cure today’s all incurable chronic fatal diseases…like cancer…just to name a few…I have always dreaded the disease..Anyway…

What I was trying to explain is that…years from those times…I now realize that those weren’t just movies…but rather a glimpse of the unseen…something that did exist…

Mace essential oil…Now getting to the point…You know this Mace Essential Oil has a long-long history of medical use…It was used to combat digestive issues and fevers…Just a harmless growing herb…that has been hidden from the human eye for many years…

Not only all those…Mace essential oil…can be used for flatulent dyspepsia…nausea…diarrhoea…dysentery and rheumatism….Mace help digestion in stomach weakness…but if used in excess may cause over-excitement…They increase circulation and body heat….They have been employed in pestilential and putrid fevers….and with other substances in intermittent fevers…and enter into the composition of many French medicaments…so be a little careful…

As for the way it looks…Mace is basically dried…crimson-coloured….lacy seed covering (that is what is called aril) removed from the nutmeg…which is enclosed in a peach-like fruit….It comes from the Moluccas….

Its odour and taste are highly aromatic and spicy…Postharvest air-drying renders mace hornlike…brittle and waxy…In its commercial forms…mace is pressed flat and dried or ground…
