Nutmeg, long used as an aphrodisiac and pain reliever, became one of Europe’s most expensive spices when it was adopted to ward off the plague. Long before that, ancient Egyptians considered it a sacred spice, and used it for embalming. Nutmeg trees, originally from Southeast Asia, take almost twenty years to mature, and in many cultures, nutmeg is a symbol of health, luck, wealth, and loyalty. We use nutmeg for its calming and opening energies, which soothe vata and free blocked kapha. We love how it enhances digestion, and how, in moderation, it enhances sleep in an evening tea.
