On the 4th day of Yule my witchy scent for you...
Nutmeg hails from a tall tree with smooth greyish bark that flowers three times a year. It takes nine years before the tree produces its first crop. The nutmeg we are familiar with is the seed which is covered by an outer shell that we know as mace, they are separated and then dried.
Carry nutmeg with you for good luck and to attract money to you. A whole nutmeg makes an excellent good luck charm.
Sprinkle nutmeg (powdered not lots of whole ones…) around your property to protect against negative energy.
Keep a whole nutmeg under your bed to ensure that fidelity in your relationship stays solid.
Nutmeg is sometimes used in place of High John the Conqueror in spell work.
