Potion making

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.

Etymology

"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".
