Black Pepper Oil
Black pepper essential oil is made from the berries of the black pepper plant and has a wonderful spicy, musky and warm aroma.
This warming oil has a variety of health benefits when inhaled and used externally, including improving circulation, reducing inflammation, relieving pain and decongesting the sinuses and airways. This makes it useful to treat muscle aches and spasms, arthritis, injuries as well as allergies and upper respiratory conditions.
When inhaled, this essential oil can help with mental alertness and energy and may ease anxiety.
Directions for use
To treat congestion, dilute 2-3 drops of black pepper oil in 10ml of carrier oil and massage it into the chest. Rub 2-3 drops into the soles of the feet, painful muscles, and arthritic joints to promote circulation and relieve pain and inflammation.
Boost energy, mental alertness and relieve anxiety by adding 2-4 drops to an oil diffuser and inhaling the aroma. You can also enjoy the benefits of black pepper oil by soaking in a warm bath to which five drops have been added.
