Description: Pimento is better known as Allspice in some countries. The reason behind the name Allspice is that its aroma can be described as a mixture of the scents of clove, cinnamon, cardamom, pepper and a few other spices. The Pimento Leaf essential oil is extracted by steam distillation of its leaves and fruits. The oil acts as anesthetic and can suppress certain types of pain, including those of neuralgia, bone and muscular injuries. It is also known to prevent bacterial infection, relieve flatulence, reduce stress and stimulate blood circulation.
