Black Pepper Piper nigrum Black Pepper essential oil is steam distilled from the peppercorn, or fruit of the Piper nigrum vine. As its name suggests, Black Pepper imparts a fiery, grounding aroma. Its stimulating and preserving qualities make it an esteemed ingredient in culinary dishes, and because it increases hydrochloric acid secretion, boosts digestion and assimilation of food. The warming and antispasmodic attributes of Black Pepper essential oil make it an excellent addition to any massage oil, especially for sore muscles and joints. Black Pepper essential oil is abundant in antioxidants (due to its high level of monoterpenes and sesquiterpenes). It also has many anti-viral properties, making it an excellent immune stimulant, especially to promote circulation and stimulate mucus and bile flow. Due to its strong fiery qualities, Black Pepper essential oil should always be tested before applying to the skin, and generally used in minimal doses.
