Because of Black Pepper's powerful chemical components, this essential oil is much more than just a handy spice in the kitchen. Black Pepper Oil is high in monoterpenes and sesquiterpenes, which are natural chemicals known for their antioxidant activity and their ability to support the immune system when needed most.
Black Pepper (Piper nigrum) is possibly one of the oldest trade commodities of the East where it has been in continuous use for over 4,000 years for medicinal and culinary purposes. It was so highly prized throughout the ancient civilized world that in 408 CE, Attila the Hun reputedly demanded 3,000 pounds of black peppercorns as part of the ransom for the city of Rome.
Best known for its ability to spice up meals and enhance the taste of foods, Black Pepper Essential Oil is a multi-purpose oil that has a variety of uses and benefits. Black Pepper Oil is widely used in minute quantities in perfumery to pique the interest with the opening (top) notes of the perfume and to add depth to the overall composition. Black Pepper Oil has also long been renowned for clearing the breath channels during periods of wintry or seasonal challenge, and when blended with other oils is fantastic for diffusing in the classroom or nursery to keep the kids resilient and clear of heavy mucous. Because it is also known to support healthy circulation, it can be used to promote general skin health. When used in a massage blend, Black Pepper Oil not only provides warm sensations during a massage, but its aromatic components also help enhance the relaxing experience.
