Black Pepper is a staple seasoning found on most tables across America, but did you know that it is also an amazing essential oil? Black Pepper Essential Oil has a warm spicy smell accompanied by subtle sweet undertones that combine for a pleasant and unique aromatherapy experience.
Historically, Black Pepper has been so prized that it was even used as a commodity and traded at a higher rate than even gold. Ancient cultures used Black Pepper to ease tired muscles and support digestion. It mixes well with Lemon, Lime, Lavender, Sage, Sandalwood, Ylang-Ylang, Juniper, Bergamot, Clary Sage, Clove, Ginger, Geranium, Grapefruit, Fennel and Frankincense oils.
Topical: Mix Black Pepper Essential Oil with a carrier oil for a concentration of 4% (to achieve this ratio please add 4 drops of Black Pepper Essential Oil to 1 teaspoon of a carrier oil). This can be used as a massage oil and rubbed over the area desired.
Diffusing: For a sense of calm and serenity, diffuse Black Pepper Essential Oil either alone or mixed with other essential oils.

We believe our essential oils are of top quality and we post the GC/MS test results for each batch to back it up. Show them to your aromatherapist and see what they say. Most "home party" or network marketing oil companies won't release their GC/MS test results, and it kinda leaves you wondering "why?" When independent testing has been done, unfortunately the popular companies have not been blemish free. That's not to say it couldn't happen to any company on occasion, but I remember one case where one of the biggest companies was caught putting a synthetic into their peppermint oil to make it smell sweeter. That doesn't get in their by accident. So, be careful, and try not to only get your information from somebody who has a financial interest in you buying their oils - even us. Nobody knows everything and nobody is perfect despite what they might like to project. But we try to get the best, for a reasonable price.
