Black Pepper (Piper nigra) Essential Oil, Steam Distilled
Black Pepper essential oil has a warm, woody, spicy scent—like freshly ground Black Pepper. Aromatically it is considered a middle to top note.
This essential oil aids in digestion, increases perspiration and helps remove toxins from the body. It also helps to relieve intestinal gas (apply diluted oil to the abdomen for digestive complaints). It can act as a purgative, cure spasms, and help to treat arthritis and rheumatism by removing uric acid and other toxins from the body. Black Pepper essential oil inhibits bacterial growth, fights premature aging, and neutralizes free radicals that damage the body in countless ways.
Our essential oils are sold in amber glass bottles with a dropper orifice for drop-by-drop administration. Do not ingest essential oils unless under the guidance of a licensed health care practitioner or experienced aromatherapist. Essential oils should always be diluted in a carrier oil before being applied to the skin. (Some examples of carrier oils: Jojoba, Sunflower, Grapeseed, Rosehip Seed, Castor, and Avocado; gently liquified Coconut Oil, Shea, or Cocoa Butter can also work for creating thicker body care products.) Always test the diluted essential oil on a small patch of skin before applying more widely.
Maximum recommended dilution for adults: 5% (five drops per teaspoon of carrier oil). Use in moderation. Avoid use in baths.
