Nutmeg – Culinary and Medicinal

GRASONVILLE, MDThursday morning – Nutmeg is a wonderful aromatic spice. The nutmeg tree, which can grow up to 60 feet tall, is native to the Molucca Islands in the South Pacific. The tree produces a peach shaped fruit known as the nutmeg apple which is discarded for the seed inside. The fruit splits when ripe to expose a pecan sized nut wrapped in a bright red netting. The netting which when dried is yellow in color is called mace. Mace is used in Indian and Asian cuisine and is also used in baked goods. Mace is milder in flavor than nutmeg. Nutmeg is used for seasoning vegetables, white sauces, pasta fillings and meat dishes. Of course, we are most familiar with nutmeg as the wonderful flavor in pumpkin pie and eggnog. Nutmeg loses its flavor quickly when powdered so it is best to use the whole nutmeg and grate with a nutmeg grater.

Medicinally, nutmeg is good for the cardiovascular system, promotes concentration, reduces joint inflammation, is good for diarrhea and upset stomach. Be aware that nutmeg is toxic in large doses so don’t use more than 2 tablespoons of grated nutmeg or 10 drops of essential oil a day. Also nutmeg and nutmeg essential oil have other cautions so be sure to check out the cautions before using.

Nutmeg essential oil is used for digestion, bloat, dyspepsia, sea sickness and muscle pains. It is a stimulant and is also good for nervous and intellectual fatigue. This oil can also produce colorful and intense dreams.

Nutmeg Tea (for upset stomach)

Add a small pinch of nutmeg to peppermint tea or sprinkle nutmeg over one tablespoon of honey to soothe an upset stomach.

Myrrh – Herbal and Medicinal

GRASONVILLE, MD – Thursday morning –  Myrrh is a resin from a tree and is harvested much in the same manner as frankincense. Myrrh is very antiseptic so you will see it in many products for mouth and gum health such as toothpaste, gargles and mouthwash. Myrrh is also an ingredient in healing salves and liniments for its antiseptic properties. Myrrh is used in Chinese medicine for arthritic and circulatory problems and in Ayurvedic medicine for its tonic and rejuvenation properties. Myrrh has cautions with regard to not using if you are pregnant and is not for use with children. Myrrh is also good for mature, wrinkled or aging skin.  Myrrh essential oil has a warm, earth, woody scent and is used for athlete’s foot, bronchitis, chapped skin, gums, bad breath and toothaches. The scent is said to have a cooling effect on heated emotions, brings tranquility to your spirit, peace and inner stillness. So try some myrrh or myrrh essential oil and experience its healing effects on body, mind and spirit. >>Candace     Listen to Candace’s podcast report – GO>>

Frankincense – Herbal and Medicinal

Frankincense is an herb of legend, an herb rich in religious history and a wonderful herb used in incense blends. Frankincense is an aromatic resin obtained from the Bosweillia tree. Frankincense Frankincense is tapped from this tree through scraping the bark so the resin seeps out and hardens into what is called “frankincense tears”. These trees grow in some of the toughest environments and are considered to be more medicinal the harsher the growing conditions. Frankincense has a woodsy, spicy and fruity scent. It elevates the spirit and soul and is relaxing for nervous tension.

Frankincense, the herb, is seldom used internally but is used in aromatherapy and incense blends. Frankincense is anti-inflammatory, anti-septic, anti-depressant, stimulates new cell growth, helps prevent wrinkles, is used on stretch marks and helps counteract aging — also heals wounds, is an expectorant, treats coughs and colds and is a gastric tonic.

Frankincense has an essential oil that is considered non-toxic and non-irritant and used externally only. The essential oil is also very antiseptic, in a diffuser helps to reduce anxiety and tension by slowing and deepening breathing, assists in easing worry, agitation and is very refreshing. So the next time you need a relaxing and spirit raising moment, try putting some frankincense into a diffuser and let your tension drift away.  >>Candace

Frankincense Stretch Mark Remedy

Place 2 drops each of frankincense essential oil, lavender essential oil and neroli essential oil into an unscented lotion or carrier oil such as olive or almond oil. Rub gently into areas with stretch marks.
