Nux Myristica is a plant with magical proprieties that is used in potion-making.
Behind the scenes
- Nux Myristica was only seen in the "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets Print Studio (Slytherin Edition)" CD-Rom.
- While nutmeg is more familiar as a spice used for cooking purposes, it has a long history regarding therapeutic use also. Numerous cultures across the globe have used nutmeg for medicinal purpose, but only in small dosages.
"Nux Myristica" is formed by two latin words: the first "nux" which means "walnut" and the second is the Latin name of the Nutmeg tree (the Genus). Thus, literally, "Nux Myristica" means "Nutmeg".
