You can charge your room or space in a variety of ways using nutmeg this month. Here are a few of my favorites:
1. In a diffuser add 4-6 drops of nutmeg essential oil and fill the space with this warm spicy essence. You can also add other oils such as orange, lemon, cinnamon, or clove to enhance the invigorating aroma of your home or space.
2. In a pot simmer 3 cups of water and sprinkle in nutmeg spice. Add any extra spices you like. Let it simmer on your stove and the steam will move through the air. Changing the space with warmth and love.
3. Use the nutmeg spice in your baking this month and enjoy all of the benefits that this ingredient gives. (Note use the spice not the essential oil for internal consumption).
4. I love a good cup of coffee in the morning. As the season changes I find myself spicing my cup up with a sprinkle of cinnamon and nutmeg. You can also try it with a sweet and spicy tea. It creates one glorious cup of gratitude!
