Black Pepper Oil

Piper nigrum

Peppery, fresh, and zesty, black pepper essential oil is popular for inspiring productivity and confidence. Use it to get energy moving toward a specific area of the body. Black pepper is a great belly oil, especially after a big meal, and brings comforting warmth to areas in recovery. (Muscles and joints love black pepper.) Our wildcrafted black pepper essential oil is steam distilled from sundried peppercorn fruits produced by flowering vines in the forests of Madagascar. Studies are ongoing into whether black pepper offers support to help people quit smoking.

Benefits and uses

The zesty, rich peppercorn fruit of the Piper nigrum vine creates a warm, radiant, woodsy, brilliantly spicy essential oil. Along with helping to reduce minor pain and inflammation, black pepper essential oil is a support to the digestive system, as well as a robust agent in helping to reduce the presence of unwanted bacteria. This essential oil is useful when looking to promote healthy lung support and encourage proper circulation. Those practicing aromatherapy at an advanced level will often incorporate black pepper essential oil into blends formulated to help individuals quit smoking. More research is needed, but early studies show that this essential oil is a promising, natural way to help manage symptoms of withdrawal when one is trying to stop smoking.

Emotionally and energetically, black pepper essential oil is a beautiful support when one is experiencing mental fatigue, low energy, and situational depression. It can also help reduce fears and motivate change when change is needed.
