Allspice Essential Oil
The name, allspice, was coined in the early 1600s due to its flavor and scent that was reminiscent of cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove all wrapped up into one beautiful bundle.
Allspice is such an exciting scent that can be both stimulating or cozy and warm. Not many essential oils can tout that kind of flexibility.
This 100% pure essential oil also has many useful benefits when considering health and home. These include being great for cleaning and disinfectant, beneficial for wounds as an antiseptic, helpful for joint pain, respiratory relief, and nausea or digestive discomfort.
