When Allspice berries were first discovered by Christopher Columbus, he mistakenly thought he had stumbled upon a new species of pepper. Poor Columbus – first mistaking Central America for Asia, then mistaking Allspice for pepper.
Lucky for him (and us), his discovery would eventually lead to the unveiling of one delectably beneficial essential oil whose fragrance is only rivaled by its medicinal power.
Allspice oil offers a wide range of mental, emotional and physical benefits, but where it really shines is in its ability to regulate the digestive system and function as a natural anesthetic.
The pain of arthritis, rheumatism, stiff joints, and sore muscles can all be treated with Allspice, as can chronic headaches and sinus tension. This oil functions as a mild numbing agent that makes physical and emotional pain more bearable. Because of this oil’s warming and anesthetic properties be sure to dilute very well as a little goes a long way.
“The name Allspice came about because the tree’s aroma is similar to a mixture of at least three spices – cinnamon, clove and nutmeg. Because of its numerous therapeutic properties, it is used to counter viral and bacterial infections, sinusitis, minor colds, indigestion, and flatulence.”
