Black Pepper

Black Pepper – Piper nigrum

A stimulating and highly antioxidant essential oil which has been shown to improve circulation, aid digestive system, as well as temporarily help curb urges to smoke. Black Pepper is also a wonderful flavor enhancer but a little goes a long way — use sparingly.

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. 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.
