Our allspice essential oil is steam distilled from the berries of Pimenta officinalis. It is sometimes known as pimento berry oil or Jamaica pepper, and is a member of the Myrtaceae (myrtle) family. Allspice berries are native to the islands of the Caribbean Sea and Central America. It has an affinity for the digestive system and can be used in massage oil blends for the abdomen. Enjoyable in diffusers, perfumes, and body care products, allspice oil supports positivity and offers comfort with its grounding qualities.
Aroma Allspice oil is a middle note with a warm and spicy aroma with touches of sweetness. The name allspice comes from the blend of aromatic notes similar to cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, black pepper, and ginger.
Constituents Allspice typically contains eugenol, methyleugenol, and β-caryophyllene. Eugenol is found in significant amounts in clove oil, cinnamon leaf oil, and basil oil.
Blending and Uses Reminiscent of the holidays with its warm and welcoming scent, allspice essential oil adds piquant touches to perfume oils and cosmetic recipes. It is often found in a variety of men’s cosmetic products. Allspice is a popular addition to massage oil blends used for occasional muscle aches. This oil is also a wonderful addition in your diffuser to help support seasonal wellness.
Allspice essential oil blends well with earthy oils like patchouli or opopanax, as well as spice oils like bay, black pepper, or ginger. It also matches beautifully with citrus oils like orange, mandarin, or lemon, as well as the floral notes of lavender, geranium, and ylang ylang.
This oil has a strong scent and can be a potential irritant, so we recommend starting with a small quantity at first to not be overpowering.

Before using perform a small patch test on your inner forearm or back. Apply a small quantity of properly diluted essential oil and cover with a bandage.
