PIMENTO OIL FOR PAIN RELIEF
In Jamaica, both ripe and unripe pimento berries have historically been used in healing, and traditional bush medicine! This powerful, herbal liquid remedy has been used for centuries as a “folk medicine" used to 'noint away various types of pain, the leaves drunk as a tea to cure digestive issues, nausea, cramps, toothaches, amongst other ailments and used as a food preservative long before refrigeration!
Pimento in one form or another has always been the homemade remedy of choice in Jamaican households both home and abroad. Usually a small flask of unripe pimento berries & ginger fermented in Jamaican white rum is always kept close to "rub down" a sickly child or adult who needs to sweat out a fever, or relieve a stomach ache, both internally or internally! Cooking with pimento is very common in Jamaica - and no authentic Jamaican meal is complete without pimento. Especially the now globally recognized "Jerk seasoning" used to marinade chicken, pork or fish!
