Mace Essential Oil


Mace  essential oil relieves stress and anxiety.  It is grounding, and has an affinity with the root chakra.  Survival issues and basic support are the root chakra’s focus–and mace will bring these issues to surface, to be identified and resolved.  It is stimulating and relaxing at the same time.  It raises physical energy, balancing fatigue and dispelling weakness.

Mace is also stimulating and balancing for the solar plexus chakra, regarded to be the energy center for personal power.  If this energy center is stagnant or congested, a person may feel stuck in life, and at the mercy of others or of life itself.  Inhaling mace essential oil will open circulation in the chakra, helping one to see that there are always choices one can make to create positive change.  This is the beginning of real empowerment.

Resentment and victimization are emotional patterns that can be buried under the stagnant energy.  Mace supplies the frequency that can dissolve these old negative patterns and free us into grace and flow.

Aromatic Profile

Top Note:   Strong spicy, bright, warming intoxicating notes

Heart Note:  Rich, nutmeg-like, spicy, warm, woody, sweet notes

Base Note:  Resinous, spicy, sweet, nutmeg notes

Classification:  Heart note

Tenacity:  Medium high

In natural perfumery, mace is considered a strong, spicy top note.  Use very small amounts added to floral blends to bring a spicy zing and relieve the boredom!  Orientals and woody perfume blends will also benefit from this energy enhancing oil, but use only a little–it is easy to add way too much.   Try blending with bay laurel, rosemary, sweet orange, or clove.
