Safety Information
Studies indicate that Allspice essential oil can act as a mucous membrane irritant if it is used at full strength in a diffuser so it is best diluted with other complimentary oils like Sweet Orange and Bergamot. Tisserand and Young recommend a dermal maximum of 0.15%. They indicate that it may interfere with blood clotting. Reading Tisserand and Young’s full profile is recommended. Robert Tisserand and Rodney Young, Essential Oil Safety (Second Edition. United Kingdom: Churchill Livingstone Elsevier, 2014). Because this essential oil poses a higher risk of causing irritation and sensitization it is recommended that it be avoided in the bath, even if it is diluted.
