Mace Essential Oil
Our organically crafted Mace Essential Oil is steam distilled from the red coloured webbing/aril covering the hard-shelled seed kernel of the fruit of Myristica fragrans tree, indigenous to the Moluccas, Indonesia. Once ripe, the fruit will open revealing the mace and will fall to the ground to be collected or it can be picked just before falling. The mace will be carefully removed, dried, then processed by steam distillation.
The Nutmeg tree (Myristica fragrans) is truly a gift from nature, as it provides two important international spices: Nutmeg, which are the seeds, and Mace, which is the crimson aril (a lacy covering) found surrounding the seeds. Native to the Spice Islands (Moluccas) of Indonesia, this small evergreen tree is also cultivated in the Caribbean, Malaysia, and India, where it's used in everything from cuisines, perfumery, soap making, and more. Whereas Nutmeg has a strong, rich, spicy and somewhat musky odour, Mace is more delicate with sweet undertones, reminiscent of freshly grated nutmeg. The tree itself doesn't bear fruit until around 8-10 years of age but can grow to a height of up to 50 feet and live up to 75 years.
