Allspice Herb - Uses And Side Effects

What is Allspice?

Because of its pleasant aroma and flavor, allspice is a popular ingredient in food recipes, toothpastes, and other products. The Food and Drug Administration deems it safe for external use.

Active chemicals in allspice come from the dried, unripe berries of Pimento of­ ficinalis or Eugenia pimenta. This tree Is native to Central America, Mexico, and the West Indies.

Common doses of Allspice

Allspice is available as:

  • a powdered fruit (10 to 30 grains)
  • a fluid extract (essential oil)
  • pimento water (aqua pimentae), which contains 1 fluid ounce of pimento oil.

Some experts recommend the following doses:

  • As a laxative ingredient, 1 to 2 fluid ounces (5 parts bruised pimento to 200 parts water, distilled to 100 parts).
  • For indigestion, mix 1 to 2 teaspoons of allspice powder per cup of water; take up to 3 cups daily.
  • For intestinal gas, place 2 to 3 drops of allspice oil on sugar and take orally.
  • For toothache pain, apply 1 to 2 drops of allspice oil to the painful area no more than four times daily.
