Black Pepper Essential Oil
Black Pepper essential oil is used in aromatherapy for arthritis, muscular and rheumatic pains, and it also helps the immune system combat colds, infections and viruses.
Black pepper oil is also known to stimulate the appetite and is considered an aphrodisiac particularly when expertly blended with other essential oils.
Black pepper is used in minute quantities in perfumery in a similar manner to how it is used in food – to add depth and pique the interest at the opening of the perfume (the top notes). It can add an interesting nuance to any floral bouquet and blends well with almost all oils, as long as only very little is used, as the tenacity of this oil is quite high. It is used in carnation compounds alongside clove buds and floral notes such as ylang ylang, rose and jasmine.
Use with caution to avoid skin reaction.
Aromatherapy Uses: Great for circulatory issues and to help increase appetite.
Caution: may cause skin irritation
Customer Reviews for Pepper, Black
- Very much freshly cracked pepper Review by M.
- (written from a perfumery perspective) Somewhat warm, spicy, with a sharp edge when tested pure, as pepper does have. Best in moderation or I find it could be a bit nauseating. (Posted on 7/7/14)
- Love this for pain relief Review by Debi
- I love the high quality of this oil. I have my own mixture I use for rubbing on muscle strains. This is so amazing and so pure you just use a very small drop in a vial. The best quality and a very fair price. (Posted on 3/14/13)
