Description: Nearly everyone has heard of nutmeg, but still many people have not heard of mace (unless they simply think of it as a type of defense product). Mace comes from the nutmeg tree. Mace comes from the aril of the fruit and the pit of fruit is actually Nutmeg. If you like Nutmeg essential oil, then chances are, you will also like Mace essential oil.
Mace essential oil does not smell exactly like Nutmeg. It's reminiscent of nutmeg, but much more delicate with a sweeter aroma. Mace essential oil is used in natural medicine, perfumery, as well as essential oil blends for the diffuser.
