Product Overview

Pink Peppercorn essential oil – similar to, more subdued in scent, and with brighter top notes than that of Black Pepper essential oil – has an aroma that is fresh, very intense, diffusive, dry, warm, and sweet-spicy with a faint floral note, a dry woody, slightly smoky undertone, and back notes resembling Angelica and Juniper. It is a popular middle to top note in natural perfumery for its refreshingly feminine, floral and exotic qualities.

Schinus molle, a fast-growing, drought-resistant evergreen shade tree, is native to the Andes Mountains of Peru and belongs to the cashew family. Referred to as the Brazilian or Peruvian Pepper, Mastic or false pepper, it is also sometimes called the California Pepper, but it is not native. Spanish colonials distributed the trees by seed into North America where they proved particularly well suited to California and the desert Southwest and became prominent during colonial times.[1] Today, with renewed interest in rainforest botanicals, Pink Peppercorn has its place among thousands of newly researched plants with worldwide usage. The invigorating and comforting aroma is useful in warming massage blends, chest rubs, and topical preparations.

Well balanced for a lot of uses

Rating

I like black pepper oil however this is an alternative which is a little more subtle or balanced to alternate between the two

Review by John 2/12/2023

Sweet , spicy, floral!

Rating

I love this oil, it is sweet, spicy & floral, masculine & feminine. I’ve been buying it for years and it remains a uplifting favorite.

Something changed

Rating

I originally got this a few years ago and it has been one of my favorites ever since. Recently I purchased a larger bottle and I'm noticing that there just seems to be a cheesy macaroni rancid coriander overtone with this batch for some reason.

Smells good

Rating

Smells great but diluted in 10% with ethanol, it became very cloudy. I heard old EOs turn cloudy. It smells good, it’s just the cloudy part that I don’t like about this one. From the Oil Room: Thank you for your inquiry! Our current lot of Peppercorn, Pink was distilled in August of 2019 and has a best by date of August 2022 so it is quite fresh. A generic claim that “old EOs turn cloudy” is untrue. If an EO is not cloudy to begin with, it is usually the presence of or introduction of water (especially if you happen to be using low proof alcohol for your dilution), high pinene content, or the precipitation of waxes that causes this phenomenon. Pink Peppercorn falls into the ‘high pinene’ category and is prone to turning cloudy when diluted in alcohol. If you need tips on how to clarify your blend, please check out our Frequently Asked Questions for recommendations on how to filter alcohol based perfumes.

Intoxicating

Rating

Agree with other reviewers who identify citrus-like and floral notes in this powerful, complex oil. The spice notes are delightful, much brighter than black peppercorn. A fabulous addition to those working with floral and citrus oils for its ability to bring depth and intrigue!
