I have not tried these yet but seen recipe and sounds yummy. I love nutmeg! When I try, I will rate it too. This is another recipe from The Guide to Natural Healing. It says, "Regular use of nutmeg stimulates the cardiovascular system, promotes concentration, acts as an expectorant, reduces joint inflammation and helps the liver remove toxins. Do not consume more than 2 tbsp. of ground nutmeg or 10 drops of essential oil per day. In large doses, can be toxic, produce hallucinogenic effect or cause miscarriages." For Joint inflammation it says to put 5 - 6 drops of nutmeg oil on a sugar cube, or in 1 tbsp. of honey. Guess as long as you use 5-6 drops a day you could put it on whatever you like. Keep it up everyday. Just thought someone might want to try. Also, from my own experience, flax seed is great for arthritis too among many other things. Eat around a tablespoon of it a day. You can grind it in a coffe grinder so its easier to digest. Put it in oatmeal, sprinkle on cold cereal, in muffins, etc...
