Nutmeg has been widely used since AD 540 when it was brought from India to Constantinople. It was used as a cosmetic to remove freckles. Medicinally, it was first mentioned by Avicenna in the 11 th century, who called it "the nut of Banda." It was given for stomach upsets, headaches, and to ease gas. It has also been taken as a hallucinogen. The essential oil is good for rheumatic pain.
Nux mosch. is given for mental illness, hysteria, problems of the nervous system, and digestive complaints. It also treats the same hallucinogenic symptoms that are caused by large doses of nutmeg, such as drowsiness, with dizziness, fainting, and lack of coordination.
