The warm, mild, dry spicey aroma of Black Pepper Essential Oil will remind you of freshly ground peppercorns combined with a soft floral undertone. While somewhat strong when diffused by itself, Black Pepper Essential Oil can add warmth and spice up your favorite DIY diffuser blends. This essential oil blends well with oils such as Bergamot Essential Oil, Frankincense Essential Oil, and Rosemary Essential Oil. Black Pepper is an excellent choice to help in reducing muscle tension and the perception of pain after a hard workout. It also supports healthy digestion and joint health for aging joints that are prone to pain.
Add Black Pepper to a carrier oil and and gently massage into the affected area.
Black Pepper can also be helpful for occasional digestive issues such as queasiness, bloating, and discomfort.
Dilute in a carrier oil at 3-5%.
