Mace Oil Can Turn You On

I had this aunt who used to dump all her bed-room blues on my mother…I used to detest her and found her sleazy and shameless…For obviously I did not use to hear all of their conversations but the mention of a few words made my ears ultra-alert…One day I discussed with mom…that is when she told me the exact problem of that lady…and I started disliking her a tad less…perhaps because my feelings to towards the lady were driven in the direction my mother had…

Anyway…the incident made me curious and I started searching for answers…stumbled across a lot many oils that help in the problem…but the one that caught my attention the most was this oil called Mace essential oil…

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?

Mace the tree is a small evergreen, not more than 40 feet in height, with smooth, grayish-brown bark, green on the younger branches. The alternate leaves are oblong-ovate, acute, entire, smooth, and dark-green. The flowers are very small and unisexual.

The Mace Tree

Heard a lot about Mace essential oil…its numerous benefits…highly impressive…one of those things that if you have one…you are sorted for an amazingly long time…

All good and all nice…Mace essential oil…But what if one can keep the whole source of this tree with oneself?

Didn’t get it? What I mean to say is…Grow a Mace tree in your backyard…not too bad an idea…what say?

Hmm…Let me help you with that…I’ll brief you from the scratch as to what all are you supposed to do…to grow this magic tree in your backyard…

Started from its origination…The nutmeg tree or call it the Mace tree…scientif name being Myristica fragrans…is native to Moluccas in East Indonesia…famously called the Spice Islands…The first commercial or I should say the official commercial plantations were in Granada…This Tree yields two spices…nutmeg which is the kernel of the seed…and mace which is the net like crimson colored leathery outer growth (called aril) covering the shell of the seed…Nutmeg and mace are the fruits of a spreading evergreen tree that grows to a height of 20m….Mainly it is produced in these countries-

  • Indonesia
  • Grenada
  • Sri Lanka
  • Trinidad
  • China
  • India

Okay…what all is needed to grow the tree is…

This tree requires a deep…well-drained loamy sandy soil…Shade is required for the first two to three years….Temperature between 20-30°C and the annual rainfall between 1500-2500mm is enough for its lush growth…

It’s an unfortunate thing but half the trees are male and hence they do not produce any kind of fruit…And to add on to the helplessness…the sex of the plants cannot be identified until they are six to eight years old…But relax…that is like the only sad part to it…

When it’s comes to propagation…Then Propagation should be from mother trees selected for their regular bearing…high yields…large nuts and heavy mace…And as a matter of fact…Mace is also an excellent spice…When talking of the quantitative criteria for selection…it is as below…

  1. Large number of fruits per tree ….over 10 000 per year
  2. Wet weight of fruits ….over 30g per fruit
  3. Wet weight of mace….over 1g per fruit
  4. Wet weight of nuts….over 10g per nut

To ensure the best quality of the tree…The soil should consist of a mixture of measures of-

  • Well-composted manure…
  • Topsoil…
  • Coarse sand…

For enhancements…One per cent rock phosphate can be added to the mixture…The seeds should be lightly buried so that part of the shell is exposed…they should be watered and left in the shade to germinate…Germination takes between four and eight weeks…The seedlings should remain in the shade for six to eight months…

Then for your further information…Before field plantin…temporary shade from either of the following has to be established…

  • Gliricidia…
  • Dadap…
  • Cocoa
  • Banana

And remember this shading and all should strictly be done six to twelve months before planting…And also note that the seedlings are planted at the beginning of the rainy season…There should be bench terracing at the base of the seedling…particularly on sloping land…of approximately half a meter in diameter…Inward sloping terracing will help to keep soil erosion to a minimum…The terracing can be increased as the tree grows…

Then coming to the part of parasites…The top one being…Weeds…Weds should be kept in check by occasional slashing and the cut material can be applied to the base of the trees in the form of mulch…Additional fertilizer is not generally applied…

Shading can be gradually removed after two to three years…Seedlings can be planted close together so that later on when the male trees have been identified…after the first flowering of course…most of them can be removed…as they do not bear fruit. Some male trees must remain for pollination; a ratio of 1:10 is common…

As we go further…again it is important for you to note that pruning will help to maintain flower…fruit and seed production…Water shoots…upright branches…dead wood…and some lower branches can be removed….

As such there’s nothing much to worry except for this disease called Nutmeg Wilt…occurrence of which will make the plant wilt and drop leaves and fruit…Sadly there is no definitive treatment…Fruit rot has been recorded in India and a  thread blight in Grenada and Trinidad…This can be a case that the soil fungi attack nutmeg trees…The main pests are borers…or bark beetles…which are small dark brown weevils about 3mm long…

Hmm…I think that is enough information for you to go a full-fledged tree in your backyard…For more info…consult our reference links…
