The myristicin in nutmeg is known for its mind-altering effects. Therefore, if ingested in large doses, nutmeg oil can cause hallucinogenic effects similar to LSD. Pregnant and nursing mothers should avoid using nutmeg in any form before consulting their doctor. Large quantities of nutmeg can promote the production of prostaglandin, a hormone associated with childbirth, and trigger a miscarriage. Keep out of reach of children, especially those under the age of 12, as the ingestion of large amounts by a child may result in nutmeg poisoning. If you are under any medication or have underlying medical conditions like cancer or epilepsy, seek medical advice from a certified medical practitioner before use. Finally, use and store your nutmeg carefully if you have a pet. The oil’s sweet-spicy scent may be appealing to your pet, but it can poison them if they consume it in large quantities.
