    BLACK PEPPER HERBAL DESCRIPTION

    Black Pepper (Piper nigrum) is also known as Blanc Poivre, Kosho, Krishna, Maricha, Pepe, Pepper, Pepper Extract, Pepper Plant, Peppercorn, Pfeffer, Pimenta, Pimienta, Piper, Piperine, Poivre, Poivre Noir, Vellaja, Green Peppercorns, and White Pepper.

    Piper Nigrum General Information Piper Nigrum, or black pepper as we best know it, has played an important role throughout history. While Attila the Hun held Rome hostage, he demanded 3,000 pounds of the Peppercorn as a tribute to his power, and during medieval times, it was traded ounce for ounce with gold. Black pepper has been cultivated for thousands of years on the Malabar coast of southwestern India, in the region defined by the modern state of Kerala. For much of the last two thousands years, black pepper was a luxury for the very rich, a commodity so valuable that it was even used as money. Nowadays black pepper is common around world and used in the cuisine of almost every nation.

    black pepper plants


    Piper nigrum plants thrive 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.Peppercorns are the fruit of Piper nigrum, an evergreen climbing vine. Black, white, and green peppercorns all come from the same plant, but they are harvested at different times and handled in different ways. To make black pepper, the clusters are plucked shortly before they ripen and are left in piles to ferment. After a few days, the berries are spread out on a mat and left to dry in the sun for two or three more days where they shrivel and blacken.

    Black pepper contains about 3-percent essential oil. The aroma is due to the 80-percent content of monoterpenes: sabinene, beta-pinene, limonene, furthermore terpinene, alpha-pinene, myrcene, delta-3-carene and monoterpene derivatives (borneol, carvone, carvacrol, 1,8-cineol, linalool). Sesquiterpenes make up about 20-percent of the essential oil: beta-caryophyllene, humulene, beta-bisabolone and caryophyllene ketone.

    Medicinally, this spice has been used to stimulate the appetite as well as provide relief from nausea. In India it has been used for a variety of conditions ranging from toothache to paralysis, and in East Africa it is thought that body odor produced after eating large amounts of this spice repels mosquitoes. Piper Nigrum has anthelmintic, antipyretic, anti-periodic, carminative, expectorant, and stimulant properties. White and green pepper is the same as black pepper; however, it is white and green depending on when it is picked off the vine, and depending on which method was used for drying. White pepper has stimulant properties as well, but it can cause circulatory congestion.

    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.
