Herbal Miscellany

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.


This essential oil is potentially carcinogenic and may inhibit blood clotting, cause skin sensitization and mucus membrane irritation. Never use essential oils undiluted, in eyes or mucus membranes. Do not take internally unless working with a qualified and expert practitioner. Keep away from children.

Before using topically, perform a small patch test on your inner forearm or back by applying a small quantity of diluted essential oil and apply a bandage. Wash the area if you experience any irritation. If no irritation occurs after 48 hours it is safe to use on your skin.
