There's a reason why black pepper is widely regarded as the "King of Spices". From a culinary standpoint, it adds that extra heat and depth of flavour to dipping sauces, gravies, marinades, salad dressings, rubs, and more.
Outside of the spice shelves, Black Pepper essential oil is just as useful. As a natural anti-inflammatory, rubefacient, and antispasmodic, it is an essential ingredient in pain blends and can help soothe overworked muscles and reduce muscle tension and stiffness. It is also anti-arthritic and anti-rheumatic so it can enhance blood circulation and ease symptoms of arthritis and rheumatism.
Black Pepper also offers relief from sinusitis and nasal congestion owing to its expectorant properties. Due to its carminative properties, it also promotes digestion, prevents diarrhoea, constipation, and other gas problems.
This oil can also assist with weight loss, improve oral health, curb cigarette cravings, treat dandruff, and promote healthy hair. On top of all these, Black Pepper is rich in anti-oxidant so it can help fight free radicals and slow down signs of ageing!

Essential oils are natural, but they are also concentrated. We recommend following basic safety precautions when using your oils:
Do not use oils undiluted on the skin, unless the instructions permit otherwise. Many oils can cause irritation when placed directly on skin, particularly on sensitive areas such as the eyes or mouth. Some oils (particularly those in the citrus family) can cause photosensitivity if used prior to going out in the sun - please check instructions carefully.
If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you should consult your healthcare practitioner prior to using essential oils. As a general guideline, oils should be avoided for the first four months of pregnancy and never used undiluted. Some oils should be avoided during pregnancy: Bay, Basil, Cedar wood, Clary Sage, Comfrey, Cypress, Fennel, Ginger, Hyssop, Jasmine, Juniper, Lemongrass, Marjoram, Melissa, Myrrh, Peppermint, Rose, Rosemary, Sage & Thyme.
Children can be particularly affected by essential oils. Some oils should not be used in children under the age of 7, and specific dilution ratios are recommended depending on the essential oil and the age of the child. We recommend consulting an appropriate practitioner prior to using oils on children.
