Abstract: Three distilled or commercially available nutmeg oils were analysed and their chemical composition compared with their capacity to inhibit platelet aggregation in vitro. It could be clearly shown that eugenol and isoeugenol play the major role in the detected activity of nutmeg. Medicinally, it appears that nutmeg oil and nutmeg powder can be replaced by eugenol and/or isoeugenol.
