The Story Behind Tropic Isle Liivng Jamaican Red Pimento Oil:
A Powerful Fragrance and Medicine : by Tropic Isle Living on Tuesday, 20 September 2011 at 16:24
Tropic Isle Living's Red Pimento Oil is obtained by steam distilling the world’s highest grade pimento leaves found only on the island of Jamaica. The oil has a sweet spicy scent and is slightly green when first extracted, but gradually turns reddish brown thereater. The reddish brown color is a symbol of its unadulterated purity. Nothing added. Nothing taken away!
Today pimento oil is used in the cosmetic, food and traditional medicine industries. But it’s in the cosmetic industry that it has perhaps made its greatest impact. It all started during the Napoleonic war when Russian soldiers would sprinkle powdered pimento seeds from Jamaica into their boots and socks to keep their feet warm. But it did more than that. It deodorized and cured the soldiers of smelly feet . Research later showed that the major active ingredient in powdered pimento seeds was anti-bacterial and antifungal. The oil from the leaves, it was soon discovered,
was even more potent than the powdered seeds.
The discovery of the pure Red Pimento Oil was a god send to the cosmetic industry. It placed in the industry's hands a natural oil that not only boost the scent of fragrances, but was also a natural deodorizer. Today pure Jamaican Red Pimento Oil is a staple ingredient in many of the most popular deodorants, colognes and perfumes on the market; for instance, Old Spice.
Medicinally, in the old days, doctors recommended pimento oil for various gastro intestinal problems including indigestion and flatulence. And to lessen cramps, pharmacists used to add it to laxatives. They also added it to less appetizing medicines to make them more palatable.
In traditional herbal medicine red pimento oil is used as a liniment to help ease aches and pains caused by arthritis,
rheumatism, muscular strain, joint pain, toothaches, neuralgia and much more. And if you are suffering from chest colds, asthma, bronchitis and other forms of respiratory problems, massage red pimento oil with a carrier oil into your chest and back to help ease congestion, clear the breathing passages and just to help ease discomfort.
All these benefits have motivated us at Tropic Isle Living to create our Red Pimento Chest and Ache Pain Rub, which also contains Jamaican Black Castor Oil and others. We have also created a Pimento Bush Bath. You can use it as a relaxing bath and to help ease and soothe ache, pain and colds.
Another major benefit of Tropic Isle Living’s pure Jamaican Red Pimento Oil is to use it as a hair thickener. Many have used it for alopecia and thinning hair. It is the major ingredient in Tropic Isle Living’s STRONG ROOTS Red Pimento Hair Growth Oil. You will also find it in our Black Castor Oil Moisturizing Shampoo and Conditioner.
