The leaves and twiglets of the allspice tree are steam distilled in local stills in the growing regions to yield an essential oil called Pimenta Leaf Oil. Distillation takes place in various parts of the West Indies, mainly in Jamaica. Smaller quantities of a slightly different oil are produced in Central America and in Venezuela. The tree grows wild in the West Indies and leaves can be harvested all year round. The leaves look almost like clove leaves and the essential oils of the two sorts of leaves are very similar in composition.
