Possessing an exotic, sweet-spice aroma, Allspice essential oil evokes the freedom of the outdoors. Think wild tropical trees and the captivating beauty of the Caribbean Islands. Allspice is a favorite modifier in many high-end men’s fragrances. 

Extracted from a balmy evergreen tree, Allspice is also known as Pimento Berry or Jamaica Pepper.  Allspice is produced by steam distilling the plant’s crushed berries. The name “Allspice” originates from its similarities to the aroma of a combination of other sweet spices of black pepper, clove and cinnamon. 

Carried over on sailing vessels from the New World during the 18th Century, Allspice quickly became popular among Europeans for its aromatic and medicinal qualities. It is the source of pimento water, historically used as a tummy remedy in its native West Indies. 

Today, Allspice remains a valued commodity and continues to link modern life  with tropical lands. The essential oil is used to flavor herbal liqueurs such as Chartreuse and Benedictine. Its illustrious aroma is also a favorite in perfumes and soaps.

Frequently Asked Questions
How to make Allspice essential oil?
  • Allspice essential oil is made via steam distillation. In steam distillation, plant material is placed in a still, water is added, then heat is applied to the unit. As water heats, plants release their essential oil, the oil rises with steam droplets that are sucked into a pipe and the oil and water are then separated. While it may not be possible to make Allspice essential oil at home without a still, you can make aromatic hydrosol water that contains many of the same therapeutic benefits as essential oil.

  • Allspice is a lesser known oil that can help with many body care issues such as combatting headaches, relieving crampy and strained and sore muscles by promoting circulation as well as alleviate tooth pain due to its eugenol content (similar to Clove- Bud). Traditionally in the West Indies, Allspice was historically used as a tummy remedy to relieve digestive issues. For a muscle massage oil blend, in a 1 oz glass bottle with a pump, fill to the “neck” with the carrier oil Jojoba Oil and blend in 2 drops Allspice, 8 drops Rosemary, 5 drops of peppermint and 5 drops of Helichrysum.
