Black Pepper Essential Oil

At RainShadow Labs, we d like to tell you a story about Black Pepper Essential Oil.  Long ago, when Europe was still young, there were no local spices available to Europeans. All spices, including black pepper, had to come from Asia and beyond.  All spices were popular in Europe, but it is said that the culinary, healing and uplifting benefits of black pepper were so sought after that the French, Spanish and Dutch started wars over it! Today black pepper isn t quite so difficult to get a hold of, but its power is entrancing nonetheless!

Black Pepper Essential Oil is a condensed distillation of the potent molecules in the black peppercorn spice. If the ancient Europeans were fighting over the peppercorns themselves, who knows what they would have done if the essential oil was available to them! Black Pepper Essential Oil is analgesic, antibacterial, antimicrobial, antiseptic, antispasmodic, aphrodisiac, gas reducing, cleansing, digestive, diuretic, fever reducing, laxative, and blood healing!

Diffusing Black Pepper Essential Oil can help with getting over a cold, respiratory infection and reducing fevers. Diffusing Black Pepper Oil can also simply make your home smell spicy and warm. To soothe arthritis, muscular aches and pains, fade bruises and increase circulation, add a few drops of Black Pepper Oil to a warm bath. To encourage digestion, reduce anxiety, or bring more blood to a specific organ in your body, simply dilute a few drops in a massage oil or cream and rub on your stomach, kidneys or where needed. Using Black Pepper Oil can heal skin disorders and even help you quit smoking!

One of black pepper oil s fun, more under-the-radar uses is as a spicy note for perfume. If you want to add a unique slant to your personal fragrance, simply mix in a drop or two of Black Pepper Essential Oil. As an aphrodisiac, Black Pepper Oil will give your personal scent a distinctive, racy note.  Black Pepper Oil blends well with Cardamom, Clary Sage, Clove, Frankincense, Geranium, Lavender, Myrrh, Orange, Rosemary, Sage, Sandalwood, Tea Tree, Vetiver and Ylang Ylang.

As you can see, Black Pepper is nothing short of a spicy miracle! The Turkish created special taxes just to deal with the piquant spice and at a point in time pepper was so valuable you could pay your rent in peppercorns in lieu of money!  It s not as crazy as it once was, but RainShadow Labs offers a Black Pepper Essential Oil that still holds all the treasured benefits of black pepper that made it so insanely sought after as it was long ago!
