DESCRIPTION

Pimento is also known as Allspice because it tastes like a combination of Cinnamon, Cloves, Juniper and Pepper. Remarkably, the oil has properties in common with the essential oil derived from these spices. Like Cinnamon and Pepper it acts as a Rubefacient and like Clove it can act as a topical analgesic. It is also reputed to be useful for helping to ease stress and lift spirits as does Juniper.
Pimento is also commonly used for respiratory conditions such as cough and congestion.

Pimento leaf oil can irritate mucous membranes and other sensitive areas, avoid facial use and use with caution.
