Columbus originally brought allspice back to Europe thinking it was pepper, hence the name Pimenta. The term “allspice” refers to its aroma that resembles a blend of cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, and black pepper.


Oil Specific: Avoid while pregnant. May cause skin irritation.
General: As with all essential oils, never use them undiluted, in eyes or mucus membranes. Do not take internally unless working with a qualified and expert practitioner. Keep away from children. If applying an essential oil to your skin always perform a small patch test to an insensitive part of the body (after you have properly diluted the oil in an appropriate carrier).
