The Magic of Nutmeg

The Intoxicating Spice: Nutmeg Magical Properties and UsesNutmeg's story isn't peaceful. Although it is considered a lucky spice now, it has been quite the unlucky spice for some in the past, and as such, its history is filled with blood. What began as an exclusive crop to the Banda Islands quickly became and excuse to enslave and kill many islanders native to the region. Nutmeg's lessen is quite clear -- don't go overboard.

Nutmeg's allure is intoxicating, and as is the case with almost all other uses of nutmeg, a little bit goes a long way. In cooking, if you use too much nutmeg you will spoil the meal. Nutmeg is a toxic hallucinogen when over-consumed, so don't eat too much of it. When using nutmeg in magical practice, don't overdo it -- It's power is quite potent.
