The black pepper plant is native to India. As a climbing vine, it is known to grow up to 10 meters in height. The fruits of this plant—the peppers—turn from green to red, but to produce black pepper, the peppers are typically picked when they are fully grown.
And while black pepper is widely known as a common cooking spice, it can also be equally appreciated as an essential oil.
Black pepper oil features the noted constituents monoterpenes and sesquiterpenes, and offers a warming sensation when used topically.
Black pepper essential oil blends well with bergamot, clary sage, frankincense, geranium rose, lavender, clove or cedarwood oils—and can be used for diffusion.
Cautions: Possible skin sensitivity. Consult your physician before use, especially if pregnant, nursing, taking medication or if you have a medical condition. Avoid eyes, mucous membranes, and sensitive skin. Keep out of reach of children.
BLACK PEPPER OIL USES:
- Warm up your massage by combining one drop with a carrier oil of your choice.
- Inhale directly or diffuse.
- For great flavor, add a drop to soups, salads, meats or entrees.
- Diffuse or rub a drop over the chest area for a warming sense.
- Massage one drop into the soles of the feet to warm them up!
