Black Pepper Organic Essential Oil

SKU 680912024631
Organic Black Pepper has a dry, fresh, woodsy scent with a hint of floral. This warm, mild scent will remind you of fresh, ground peppercorns. The scent can be strong on its own, but can be toned down by adding it to a blend or diffusing with other oils it blends well with such as Bergamot, Frankincense, and Rosemary. Organic Black Pepper is a favorite to use on aching joints or muscles after exercise or from normal wear and tear. It is another oil that works well when digestive upset such as queasiness, bloating, or discomfort arise.

How Aromatherapy Works

The theory is that aromatherapy activates areas in your nose called smell receptors, which send messages through your nervous system to your brain.

Essential oils may have an effect on emotions because they activate areas of the brain like the limbic system. The other effect is on the hypothalamus, which may respond to the oil by creating feel-good brain chemicals such as serotonin. 

According to WebMD, you shouldn't use aromatherapy instead of your regular medical treatment. But for some conditions, research shows that aromatherapy can have health benefits.


The International Federation of Aromatherapists does not recommend that essential oils be taken internally unless under the supervision of a medical doctor who is also qualified in clinical aromatherapy. All cautions listed for individual oils do not include those cautions from ingestion.
