  Black Pepper (no ratings yet)
Piper nigrum, steam-distilled buds, India.
• Warming
• Stimulating
• Pain relief
• Anti-bacterial
• Circulatory Stimulant


Black Pepper Oil, is mildly stimulating, and would be wonderful in a pre-sports rub to loosen muscles, as well as in a pain reliever for overworked muscles.

Aromatically, Black Pepper Essential Oil is a surprise…mild and almost woody in aroma, it does NOT smell like the peppercorns from which it is distilled, until the dry down. Initially, it has a soft almost floral/wood note.

Black Pepper Oil is a circulatory stimulant. As such, it can be helpful with arthritis, neuralgia, poor circulation, general stiffness, sprains, and sciatica. We have had positive feedback from people using it to help ease the symptoms of Reynaud’s syndrome. We use it, with Helichrysum and Lavandin in our blend for joint pains.

Emotionally it is an aphrodisiac, and also is said to both increase self confidence and to be grounding and stabilizing. Some authorities recommend it for concentration and memory loss. Black Pepper Oil is said to heighten alertness, assertiveness, and improve the user's self-image.

It is also a strong antibacterial and antiviral oil, warming and comforting for congestion, the flu, etc.

Jeanne Rose has done some testing that indicates inhaling black pepper may be helpful for those trying to stop smoking. Black Pepper oil is also a stimulant, very useful for emotional or mental fatigue.

SHELF LIFE: Approximately 2 to 3 years after you open the bottle.  Storing dark, refrigerated, and decanting half full bottles into smaller, full bottles will extend shelf life.
