Pimento Wood is used mainly as a tea (often added to the leaves with the thought that the resultant brew will be stronger) in order to treat bacterial and fungal infections, reducing blood sugars and occasionally for rheumatism. It most certainly act as a digestive and calm upset stomachs from over indulgence.  Traditionally, in the Caribbean, women infuse the leaves and/or the twigs in white rum for menstrual pain. The leaves and wood contain trace amounts of Eugenol which is a weak anti microbial agent.

Neither the leaves nor the wood feature much in culinary terms although both are used in smoking jerk seasoning, but they are traditionally used for medicinal purposes as described.

Whilst the fruit (the berries and its ground version) are well known in the West, The leaves are relatively unknown outside the Caribbean except where migratory patterns have introduced them in our multi cultural society.

PIMENTO TREE is indigenous to Caribbean Islands.It was found growing in Jamaica by early Spanish explorers who were very impressed with the taste and aroma of the berries and leaves.Pimento is also grown in Mexico, but it is Jamaica that has the longest history. Jamaica is the largest exporter of pimento seeds and leaves.Pimento also known as PIMENTA DIOICA  is closely related to the bay tree and to cloves.Also known as allspice, the ground pimento combines the characteristic flavour and aroma of cloves,nutmeg,cinnamon and pepper, all combined in one spice,hence the name allspice. – See more at: http://crazyjamaica.com/?page_id=3720#sthash.rYGf7Xto.dpuf

The first Spanish explorers discovered the tree in The Caribbean, in Jamaica which is still the main source (although it also grows in Central America, and is principally cultivated in Mexico there, but also The Greater Antilles and other Caribbean Islands) and they quickly learnt of the culinary effects of its berries which we know as Allspice ( derived from the fact that the taste is often described as a mixture of cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg and pepper and was first termed by the English in 1621 ) – It is also known, however, as Jamaican Pepper, Myrtle Pepper, Pimenta or Pimento, English Pepper or Newspice.

It has become a naturalised plant in Hawaii and Tonga and is even grown in India
