Black Pepper essential oil is extracted from the dried, crushed, almost-ripe, red fruit of the Piper Nigrum plant that is native to East Asia. It has a strong, sharp, spicy aroma which adds an 'intriguing' note to aromatherapy blends.
Black Pepper has been used as a culinary and medicinal spice for over 4000 years. In modern day aromatherapy, Black Pepper essential oil is particularly useful for digestive problems, muscle pain, stiffness and fatigue. 


  • Species: Piper nigrum
  • Plant family: Piperaceae
  • Origin: India 
  • Note: Middle to top 
  • Extraction method: Steam distilled


Safety Note:
Black Pepper may cause irritation to sensitive skins. Always spot test first.  Care should also be taken as using too much of this essential oil could over-stimulate the kidneys. It should also be avoided in pregnancy due to its possible skin sensitizing effect.
Black Pepper essential oil may be useful in treating bruises and chilblains when used in a compress.
Black Pepper oil has a strengthening, fortifying and uplifting effect on the mind.
Black Pepper oil can be beneficial for digestive complaints such as flatulence and constipation. Its analgesic, anti-inflammatory and rubefacient properties make it extremely useful in massage blends for muscle pain, stiffness, fatigue, rheumatism and arthritis. The oil is thought to stimulate the spleen (which is involved in the production of new blood cells) and can therefore be valuable for anaemia, or after severe bleeding or bruising.

Other spices and most florals, also Frankincense, Marjoram, Rosemary and Sandalwood
