Black Pepper Essential Oil


Not rated yet

Black pepper essential oil is derived from the flowering vine in the family Piperaceae and its fruit peppercorn. It’s valued not only as a flavoring agent in our meals, but also for a variety of other purposes, such as medicinal uses, as a preservative and in perfumery. In recent decades, scientific research has explored the many possible benefits of black pepper essential oil such as relief from aches and pains, lowering cholesterol, detoxifying the body, enhancing circulation, among many more.

Black pepper’s major active principle, piperine, has been shown to have many beneficial health attributes including possible anticancer properties, which is why researchers have looked at it for inclusion in diet therapy for cancer treatment as well as cancer prevention. While somewhat strong when diffused by itself, Black Pepper Essential Oil can add warmth and spice up your favorite DIY diffuser blends.
