Allspice (Pimenta Dioica)

Allspice is native to the Caribbean Islands and South America. Today it is cultivated in Cuba, Jamaica, and Central America. Extraction of the oil is through steam distillation of the plants leaves and berries.

The oil is used, not only for health and medicinal purposes, but also for spices, flavoring, and fragrance. It is used in aromatherapy for providing a happy, warm and sense enhancing feeling. Allspice essential oil is commonly used during the fall and winter months either with a diffuser or some other vaporizers because the odor resembles clove and cinnamon it makes the whole house smell warm and inviting.
