What is pimento 

What is pimento 

Pimento (Pimenta Diocia) was indigenous to Jamaica and its inhabitants, the Arawak Indians when it was first discovered by European explorers in 1421 

More popularly known as "allspice", a phrase coined by the British circa 1621, because it combines the flavors of cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg

Dried pimento berries is the essence of Jamaican cuisine and no authentic Jamaican meal is complete without pimento - especially the now globally popular Jerk rub used to marinade chicken, pork or fish, cooked over pimento wood and charcoal

In Jamaica, both ripe and unripe pimento berries have historically been used to heal and soothe, as in the Jamaican culture pimento, like ginger fixes everything 

Long before modern medicine, this powerful herbal liquid remedy has been used for centuries as a Jamaican bush medicine to anoint away various types of pain, the leaves drunk as a tea to cure digestive issues, nausea, cramps, toothaches, amongst other mild ailments and used as a food preservative before refrigeration

Pimento in one form or another has always been the homemade remedy of choice in Jamaican households both at 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 pain


What is pimento oil good for

The fruit of trees and plants that flourish wildly and abundantly throughout the tropical Island of Jamaica are fermented over time to produce this holistic, alternative healing, massage and reflexology oil

The health properties of pimento include it being a natural analgesic- It has a numbing effect on the nerves which does not let the sensation of pain reach the brain or be felt by our nerves

This helps to overcome pain resulting from wounds headaches, colds, arthritis, and gout among others

Pimento also doesn’t make your nerves and brain dull in the long run, nor does it have any adverse effect on the heart, unlike most prescription or over the counter analgesics that are available on the market
