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.
