Black Pepper 100% Pure Essential Oil
Native to India, black pepper is a flowering woody vine that bears small white blooms and, most importantly, tiny fruits known as drupes. When dried, this fruit takes on its familiar peppercorn form, and this is the source of its oil. Long prized in traditional practices and historically highly valued in trade, black pepper is a ubiquitous spice found on tables throughout the world, typically with its sodium companion, salt. Bearing a scent that is spicy, dry, and clear, black pepper is found in massage oils and even some perfumes.

History of Black Pepper
A spice that has been used around the globe for centuries, black pepper has been cherished for ages. The ancient Romans coveted it for its uniquely peppery flavor in cooking, and it was a luxury throughout the Middle Ages, with some cultures using it as a form of currency. Even more telling of black pepper’s appeal, it has long been favored for igniting the passions. Much of the spice’s allure comes from the compound piperine, which gives black pepper its signature taste and scent. Fresh, bold & spicy, black pepper features subtle fruit notes, lending it an unexpected quality that only bolsters its rejuvenating properties.
