Nut-Med Spray is a pain relief spray that’s pure West Indian magic! I picked up a bottle along my travels to combat some persistent knee pain, and I can wholeheartedly say that this stuff works.
Nut-Med Spray Heritage
Nut-Med is a product of Noelville Ltd., a small, home-grown Grenadian company located in Grenville, the island’s second-largest city nestled midway along the east coast. Grenville also happens to be home to Grenada’s largest nutmeg processing plant.
As noted previously, Grenada West Indies is the world’s #2 producer of nutmeg, accounting for some 20% of the world’s supply. So it follows that the prized crop plays a significant role in the cultural heritage of the island. Like Morne Délice Nutmeg Jam, a bit of that cultural heritage can is in Nut-Med Spray.
Noelville Ltd.’s founder and developer of the Nut-Med formula, Denis Noel (also known as Dr. Spray), detailed the local folk roots of the remedy in a recent interview, saying:
What the old folks used to do, they used to take the nutmeg, grate it, mix it with soft candle, pour some alcohol on it, and light it with a match. It would melt down into a poultice, and they took that poultice and put it on the aching part of the body and they got pain relief.
What is Nut-Med Spray
Dr. Spray’s finished Nut-Med product follows the same traditional solution. Though there are a few extra ingredients like menthol (5%) and methyl salicylate (5%) thrown in, probably for added fragrance and antiseptic benefits. And it should be pointed out that Nut-Med Spray wasn’t tested on animals.
The main pain-relieving ingredient, though, is the nutmeg. Medics have been using the stuff to treat various aches, pains, and illnesses for hundreds of years. Some of the earliest recorded evidence of this dates back to the 5th century when nutmeg was used to treat digestive issues in China. In more recent times, nutmeg oil has become a popular treatment for those suffering from arthritis.
Nut-Med works along similar lines. Easy to spray, it’s light, smells great, and is fast-acting. You just spray it wherever you have muscle or joint pain and rub it in. The stuff dries right away. It won’t stain your clothes. And it’ll have you ready for any Caribbean adventure in no time!
