Allspice essential oil, also known as the pimento berry, is a natural aromatic mélange of spices reminiscent of pepper, nutmeg, clove, cinnamon, and cardamom all rolled into one. Allspice can also be called West Indian Bay, however Bay West Indies is a different oil that is mainly distilled from its leaves instead of its fruit.
Allspice is very stimulating, and thus its warming action makes a good addition in massage blends for muscular cramps, arthritic and rheumatic conditions. The aroma of allspice is also noted as an aphrodisiac and makes a perfect addition to sultry blends as a spicy, sensuous middle note.
Pro tip: Add a trace amount to fruity, floral, or woody oriental accords for a seductive, voluptuous note.
