BLACK PEPPER ESSENTIAL OIL OVERVIEW

Black Pepper, or Piper nigrum, thrives best in shady, forested locations. This climbing woody vine uses trees and other supports to grow to about twenty feet high, but is normally kept to about 12 feet for commercial purposes and has a lifespan of about twenty years. Black Pepper is native to Asia and the plant is originally from India, Malaysia, Madagascar, China and Indonesia. The word pepper is derived from the Latin word piper, which in turn is taken from the Sanskrit word pippali.

Black Pepper has been used since the times of the Ancient Romans and Greeks. Even the Turks levied a tax on pepper, while the French, Portuguese and Dutch often went to war in the middle ages to fight for this lucrative trade from the Far East.

Black Pepper Oil is mostly made in Singapore, India and Malaysia. Its dried berries, known as peppercorns, have multiple uses; in the past, they were of notable value as an aromatic spice and were much sought after as a trading commodity. Black Pepper Oil is obtained from the berries and features a mildly pungent scent. The strong and sharp spicy smell of the oil is faintly reminiscent of Clove Oil, yet more refined. It can range in color from light amber to yellow-green and has a watery viscosity. The oil is made from the unripe red fruit of the plant, while white pepper for household use, is made from the same fruit, but the berry is picked when fully ripe and the outside layer (pericarp) is removed before drying. The unripe, sun-dried peppercorns (fruit) are used for the extraction of the oil. Up to a half a ton of peppercorns must be processed, by steam distillation, to produce 1 quart of Black Pepper Oil (a yield of nearly 2 percent).

The warm and spicy essential oil is useful for warming the body and promoting circulation as well as for alleviating sore muscle and joint pain and tension. When used as a bath or massage oil, it provides relief from chronic rheumatic ailments. Black Pepper Oil boosts the immune system and also strengthens the entire digestive tract and alleviates bloating and colic by regulating activity in the large intestine while inducing a mild laxative effect. It stimulates the kidneys and disperse bruising by increasing circulation to the skin. The oil's intense aroma invigorates the whole body and mind and is effective for people who feel listless.
