The Nux Moschata homeopathic remedy is originally made from nutmeg, an egg-like seed that produces the Myristica species of trees that grows in Indonesia.

In its herbal, non-homeopathic form, it’s known to be an easily available hallucinogen with psychotropic effects such as mild intoxication and deep sleep. If consumed, it can cause dizziness, sluggishness, dry mouth, and nausea followed by extreme giddiness. It’s commonly used as a recreational drug in India.

Homeopathic Popularity

Homeopathically, Nux Moschata is not a commonly used remedy. That being said, Kent writes that Nux Moschata is not a useful remedy, but its very often overlooked when needed.

The remedy looks like some of our polycrests such as Calcarea and Lycopodium. It may even be given after a polycrest doesn’t work. 

Nux Moschata is also similar to homeopathic Cannabis and its drug-like themes in the mind and physical spheres, as you will soon see. They are so similar that both remedies are usually learned together.

This remedy has affinities to the mind, nerves, female organs,  and digestion.

Feeling “High”

A person needing the Nux Moschata homeopathic remedy will usually have chronic mental issues similar to the intoxication effects of nutmeg.nux moschata homeopathic remedy

This includes:

  • detachment from reality.
  • sensations of floating and flying.
  • feeling of separation from the limbs and body.

They may even experience a loss of consciousness from time to time.

Some of these very noted delusions include delusions of being the devil, distances that things are large (when they really aren’t), delusions that their head is separated from their body, or the sounds are more distant than they really are. 

In short, they will seem strange or ludicrous, very much like a “druggie” personality.
