Black Pepper Essential Oil is a warming oil that has a stimulating effect on body and mind; a great one to add to the burner if you have a task to do to (its a very powerful oil, so a little goes a long way).

It may also help to improve circulation and ease digestive  problems. Black Pepper essential oil is commonly used in athletic massage rubs (its one of the star ingredients in our best-selling Muscle & Joint Gel).

It's properties are often thought to be similar to those of capsicum. Historically it's been used as a muscle relaxant and an aphrodisiac for thousands of years. It's also said to help improve concentration.

The main use to which I put Black Pepper is in massage blends for muscular pains stiffness and fatigue but it is important to keep the proportion of Black Pepper in a blend very low as it is possible to produce local irritation by overdoing it

I am 'warming' to this oil. I like to try new oils, especially for their aroma, and black pepper wasn't especially interesting from this perspective. But I am now adding it to moisturisers and find it adds a depth and warmth to the mixture. Not much needed, so good value too.
