However, the name Pimenta acris refers to a totally different plant species, the West Indian Bay Tree, which has a multitude of common names and its origin is in the Caribbean. It is also used for its essential oils in cooking, but high concentrations of the oil is toxic. The current, updated scientific name is Pimenta racemosa, so Pimenta acris is a synonym, and this little tree belongs to the eucalyptus family, Myrtaceae.
So, which plant did LUSH use in their products? It is impossible to tell from their website, but lets hope they know...
