Pimento is a big evergreen tree native to the Caribbean Islands and South America whose botanical name is Pimenta Dioica or Pimenta Officinalis, in which the suffix Officinalis suggests that it has medicinal properties. Pimento is better known as Allspice in some countries. The reason behind the name Allspice is that its aroma can be described as a mixture of the scents of clove, cinnamon, cardamom, pepper and a few other spices. The essential oil of pimento is extracted by steam distillation of its leaves and fruits, but the oil extracted from each of these two is slightly different from the other in color and aroma. The chief constituents of its essential oil are cineol, caryophyllene, eugenol, methyl eugenol and phellandrene.
