Black Pepper Essential Oil


Black Pepper is best known as a common cooking spice that enhances the flavor of foods, but it’s internal and topical benefits are equally noteworthy. Black Pepper has a chemical structure similar to Melissa, contributing to its reputation as an oil that soothes nerves and lessens anxious feelings. This essential oil is high in monoterpenes and sesquiterpenes, known for their antioxidant activity and ability to help ward off environmental and seasonal threats. Black Pepper promotes healthy circulation both internally and externally, but should be used with caution when applied topically due to its strong warming sensation. It can also help with the digestion of foods, making it an ideal oil to cook with and enjoy both for its flavor and internal benefits.
