Black Pepper is a vine. Some of the countries that produce Black Pepper essential oil include India, Indonesia, Brazil and Southeast Asia. The berries are steam distilled to create a clear to pale olive colored essential oil.
Black Pepper essential oil is a stimulating, warming oil used during the cold winter months in massage oils, as well as blended into a carrier oil for an excellent pre or post sport muscle rub. It is helpful when used in a massage oil when you have a cold or flu with aches and pains. It may help with fatigue, lethargy, lack of concentration and impotence. In the respiratory tract, Black Pepper essential oil may help with bronchitis, colds, flu, infections and viruses. In a room spray it may help to destroy airborne infections and for a toothache it may be helpful when blended with Clove essential oil.
Black Pepper blends well with Clove, Frankincense, Lemon, Pine, Rosemary and Sandalwood essential oils.
