Black Pepper (Piper nigrum) – Essential Oil


SKU: 15105

Black pepper is one of the oldest spices. Its uses date back to the Greeks, Romans, and Egyptians. The spice pepper was first recorded around 3,000 years ago in ancient Indian Sanskrit texts, although it was actually long pepper that was most popular then and India’s most valuable export. Due to its high value, the true source of both long and black pepper was jealously guarded.

Black Pepper Essential Oil is steam distilled from the pepper fruit and has a strong and sharp fragrance that stimulates and energizes. Topical use is closely associated with circulatory health. Therapeutically, Black Pepper Oil helps to improve circulation and can help to ease the pain of aching muscles. It may help with inflammation due to arthritis pain. Black pepper is known in ayurvedic medicine for its warming properties that can be helpful to circulation and heart health when used internally or applied topically.
