 Nutmeg oil (Myristica fragrans) - the origin, source, extraction method, chemical composition, therapeutic properties ...
Nutmeg oil is sharp, spicy and rather musky in aroma.

Nutmeg oil is considered non-toxic, non-irritant and non-sensitizing, yet in very large dosage may become toxic with symptoms such as nausea and stupor, which is most likely due to the myristicin contained in the oil (mace oil has a higher concentration of myristicin than normal nutmeg oil).

 Nutmeg and derivatives - 5. Description of components of nutmeg
There are two types of oils: (1) The "essential oil of nutmeg" also called the "volatile oil" accounts for 5-15% of the nutmeg seed and (2) the "fixed oil of nutmeg" sometimes called "nutmeg butter" or expressed oil of nutmeg accounts for 24-40% of the nutmeg seed.
Although the essential oil is present in lesser amounts than the fixed oil, the essential oil has received most of the investigative research efforts especially during the last twenty years.
In this extraction procedure, the essential oil was not removed prior to extracting the fixed oil and thus, the essential oil appears as a component in the fixed oil.

 Nutmeg and derivatives - 8. Market analysis for trimyristin and myristic acid
What is done in the oleochemical industry with these oils is that all the fats in these oils are split by a single hydrolysis process into their different fatty acids and glycerol.
In short, it will be economical to extract both nutmeg oil through steam distillation and the trimyristin from the remains after steam distillation because the same batch of nutmeg would be used to yield these two marketable by-products.
This was based on the quantity of nutmeg that would be consumed in the production of nutmeg oil and the expected remains of nutmeg after the nutmeg oil has been removed.
