  • Reading about this oil, it looks as though it is a Base oil. I don’t fully understand the .3% dilution. If I used this in a 10ml roll on bottle, how many drops is .3%?

    1. Scott, since a 1% dilution in 10 mL is 3 drops, and .5% dilution would be 1.5 drops, a single drop is all you would need to get about a .3% dilution 🙂

  • I’m very interested in this oil and it’s benefits. Can’t wait to try it in a blend for muscle and joint pain. Thanks for the info.

  • Allspice is an oil that I’ve never bought. I wasn’t sure how to use it or what it was good for. This info answers a lot of my questions. I’m thinking allspice eo and sweet orange eo would smell divine in my PT diffuser. Thanks for all the info

  • Since this oil is nearly as high in Eugenol as Clove Bud, can it be used as a substitute for Clove for therapeutic blends? (primarily muscle/joint pain). I love the scent of Allspice essential oil – especially with Lime and Vetiver. It smells like a masculine aftershave <3

    1. Absolutely, Kathy! Just make sure to keep in mind Allspice’s slightly lower dilution rate (Clove Bud is .5% and Allspice is .3%)

  • Cant wait to diffuse it !!
    As I read, I was wondering what doeas the CO2 stands for or what does it mean for an EO to have that distinction.
    Thank you!

  • I love the aroma. It reminds me of holiday baking time when I was a kid. Blending with orange or ylang ylang sounds very interesting.

  • Can’t wait to see the top four ways to use this oil along with recipes! I love this one and don’t find enough ways to use it.
