Cardamom - Cardamom pods contain highly aromatic citrus-like, floral flavoured seeds with menthol undertones.

Nutmeg - Nutmeg is a narcotic in excess quantities. It is an astringent, a stimulant and an aphrodisiac. Nutmeg oil is used in perfumes and ointments.

Mace - Mace is the aril (the bright red, lacy covering) of the nutmeg seed shell. The mace is removed from the shell and its broken parts are known as blades.
