[BLACK PEPPER Piper nigrum]

Description Black Pepper is best known as a common cooking spice that enhances the flavour of foods, but its topical benefits are equally noteworthy. This essential oil is high in monoterpenes and sesquiterpenes, known as antioxidants. It is an ideal oil to cook with, enjoyed both for its flavour and ease of use. Black Pepper invigorates the skin but should be used with caution when applied topically due to its strong warming sensation.


Research has shown that Black Pepper can assist with skin regeneration, boosting metabolism, reducing sad and anxious feelings, and maintaining healthy cholesterol levels already within the normal range.
