Black Pepper

Piper nigrum

Black Pepper is best known as a common cooking spice that adds flavor to foods, but its internal and topical benefits are equally significant. Black Pepper essential oil is high in monoterpenes and sesquiterpenes, known for their antioxidant activity and ability to help ward off environmental and seasonal threats. Black Pepper promotes healthy circulation, but should be used with extreme caution when applied topically due to its strong warming sensation. It can also help with the digestion of foods, making it an ideal oil to cook with and enjoy both for its flavor and internal benefits.
