Pimento berries Essential oil Jamaica
Odor: spicy
Use: Pimento is a branched evergreen tree that grows up to 12 meters high. It has leathery, smooth leaves of a dark, glossy green, resembling those of the laurel. They give off a wonderful aroma of clove when crushed or rubbed, as they contain secretary glands containing odorant molecules from which the essential oil is extracted. But it is the small, brown, globular, sweet-pulped berries that boast the richest, most powerful fragrance. When crushed, they give off a delicious fragrance of cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, and pepper. Such varied olfactory intensity earned it the nickname "allspice." The berries are harvested between September and March by the Jamaicans, who climb the trees and break the branches by hand. This process serves to prune and does not harm the tree. In fact, the use of machetes is prohibited because iron of the tool reacts with the tannic acid in the branches. This reaction is toxic to the tree, which, as a result of such exposure, can die in two years. The cut branches are then flailed on the ground to free the berries to be gathered. These fruits must still be green, otherwise they lose their aroma. They are sun-dried for four to ten days and crushed prior to being distilled.

Pimento Berry (ALLSPICE)
Odor: characteristic
Use: Pimento Berry (ALLSPICE) essential oil, the oil I personally refer to as Sweet Clove Bud. This is a fascinating spice that a good friend from Trinidad seems to love cooking with. My reason for referring to this oil as sweet clove bud is because the aroma reminds me of a cross between clove bud, nutmeg, toasted cinnamon and sweet morello cherries. Either way this oil has a high content of Eugenol and this oil should be used with great care.

Notes:
Pimenta Berry Oil is steam distilled from dried, crushed, fully grown, but unripe fruits of the West Indian tree, Pimenta Officinalis. Certain manufacturers insist on water distillation and and there is reason to believe that this type of distillation yields a superior quality of oil. The tree is a native of the West Indies and grows wild abundantly on many of the islands, particularly Jamaica. In Guatemala, Venezuela, Honduras and Trinidad, various related species of the tree also grow and they yield slightly different essential oils. tsca definition 2008: extractives and their physically modified derivatives. pimento officinalis, myrtaceae.
