Macis, aceite de.
NOTE. Mace has also been used as a name for solutions of chloroacetophenone, a tear gas.
Mace oil is a volatile oil obtained by distillation from mace, the arillus of the seed of Myristica fragrans (Myristicaceae). Nutmeg is the dried kernel of the seed of M. fragrans. Mace is used as a flavour and carminative similarly to nutmeg. It has also been used with herbal substances and other volatile agents in preparations for musculoskeletal and respiratory-tract disorders. As with nutmeg, large doses of mace may cause epileptiform convulsions and hallucinations.
