Allspice Berry

Allspice Berry

The warm, spicy aroma of Allspice Essential Oil is similar to that of clove and cinnamon essential oils. The high content of Eugenol is partly responsible for this similarity.

Allspice Oil is a wonderful oil to use in the diffuser during the fall and winter. If used at full-strength, it can be a potent mucous membrane irritant, so it’s best blended at a low ratio with other essential oils before diffusing. I particularly like Allspice Oil blended with Orange Oil or Bergamot Oil. Allspice Essential Oil’s high Eugenol (a phenol) content suggests that Allspice may act as an anti-viral oil.

Allspice Essential Oil, in small dilutions, is said to act as an aphrodisiac. Its rich, warm aroma also complements masculine blends.

Although Allspice Oil is regarded for its use within personal fragrancing, massage, arthritic and muscular applications, Allspice Oil can be a dermal irritant. If you choose to use Allspice Oil within topical applications, be certain to dilute it very well.
