Pink Peppercorn Essential Oil possesses a bright peppercorn aroma with a faintly floral note, a dry woody, slightly smoky undertone - more subdued in scent, and with brighter top notes than that of Black Pepper Essential Oil. It is a middle note that can add a beautiful and distinctive characteristic to aromatic formulations. The
molle, or Pink Peppercorn Tree, was considered a sacred tree to ancient Incans. Indigenous populations used all parts of the tree, including the Pink Peppercorn fruit, as herbal solutions to health needs dating back to Pre-Colombian times. The leaves have been used in various native healing rituals tied to purification, cleansing and sanctioning peaceful times. The Inca used the outer part of ripe fruit to make a beverage, both fermented and not.

In comparison, Black Pepper Essential Oil tends to only contain approximately 50-60% monoterpenes.
