Our organically crafted black pepper essential oil is steam distilled from sundried peppercorn fruit wildcrafted from a flowering vine growing in the forests of Madagascar. We often reach for this essential oil when looking to help reduce minor pain and inflammation.
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 beautiful support to the digestive system, as well as powerful 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 wonderful 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.

The chemistry of Black Pepper can vary considerably based on the source. The hot and spicy nature of the oil may cause skin irritation. Use in 1% dilution when applying to the skin in massage oils. Not recommended for use in baths. Store well, as the limonene, alpha-pinene, delta-3-carene content leaves it vulnerable to oxidizing. Once oxidized, it is even more likely to cause serious skin irritation or sensitization.
The suggested shelf life is 3-4 years.
