Black Pepper

Piper nigrum

Description

Black Pepper is a fantastic anti-inflammatory agent. The oil stimulates circulation at the area of application, creating warmth. Black Pepper is very useful during flu season. Due to its analgesic and warming (rubifacient) qualities, Black Pepper is an excellent ingredient in sports massage oils to soothe sore muscles, pain and stiffness. Adding a drop of Black Pepper oil to jojoba creates a wonderful chest rub or foot massage oil that warms the body while stimulating circulation and the immune system. 

To reduce nausea, put a drop or two on a tissue and inhale the warm, spicy aroma for a few minutes. Some studies have shown that inhaling the aroma of Black Pepper oil can help individuals quit smoking.  Add to a cream and massage into belly to support digestion and ease constipation and gas. Use at a 1% dilution (5-6 drops per ounce of carrier). Current GC/MS report available soon.

Safety + Shelf Life

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.

Always have it in my stock. wonderful aroma, so many uses.
Once I discovered the energy clearing properties of Black Pepper, I always have plenty of this oil on hand. Mixed with Peppermint and Tea Tree you have a wonderful smelling, clearing on both the physical and energetic blend. Lovely as a room spray, especially in homes where there is conflict. Effective as a morning linen spray to clear the processing done during dreams or to clear nightmare energy. I carry a bottle of the above blend with me everywhere I go. So refreshing1
