Aromatherapy of the Week: Black Pepper

bp

Black Pepper (Piper nigrum) is one plant most people don’t think about as having benefits, however it does have some incredible “powers”! The essential oil originating in Sri Lanka is from Steam Distilled peppercorns. The aroma is actually quite pleasing, a mix of floral, spicy and woody. Benefits of Black Pepper are:

  • good for the circulatory system
  • Warming to stimulate muscles
  • grounding
  • great for concentration
  • soothes aching muscles
  • anti-bacterial, anti-viral
  • decongestant

Black Pepper blends well with Bergamot, Clove, Ginger, and other woodsy aromas.
