    Properties Beneficial To The Mind, Emotions And Spirit: Black pepper is said to 'warm the heart where there is indifference.' This stimulating oil has a strengthening effect on the mind and nerves, and may help give stamina when suffering from frustration. According to aromatherapist and author Jeanne Rose, testing indicates black pepper may be helpful to people trying to stop smoking.

    Of Interest: This ancient and highly revered spice, mentioned in Chinese and Sanskrit texts, dates back thousands of years. It was used in India over 4000 years ago for diseases such as cholera, and was employed as currency in the middle ages. Atilla the Hun is reputed to have demanded 3000 pounds of pepper as part of the ransom for Rome - where it was a great favourite and taxes were paid with it instead of coins. The Greeks employed it for combating fevers, and the Turks even levied a tax on caravans transporting pepper through their country.

    Properties Beneficial To The Physical Body: The powerful warming properties of black pepper make it extremely beneficial to all kinds of aches, pains, muscle and joint stiffness and even temporary paralysis, as it stimulates the circulation and dilates the blood vessels. It is an excellent pre-exercise oil, can bring down a high temperature and is very effective in all kinds of respiratory and digestive disorders.

    Black Pepper Oil Blending Suggestions: Black pepper can give an intriguing 'lift' to your blends, try it with basil, bergamot, cypress, frankincense, geranium, grapefruit, lemon, palmarosa, rosemary, sandalwood and ylang ylang.

    Alternative Suggestions For Use: It is believed to be an antidote for mushroom and fish poisoning!

    Safety Precautions: May cause skin irritation on a sensitive skin. Too much too often may over-stimulate the kidneys.

    Dictionary Terms Explained

    Holistic Trader own brand oils - Essential oils
    We take great pride in the quality of our essential oil range.

    * They are non-adulterated and are as produced at the still
    * We specify the country of origin for each oil
    * Each oil has been independently tested by French chemist
    * Our essential oils are not blended unless we say specifically say so
    * No middlemen - straight from soil to bottle

    Originally the Holisticshop range of essential oils went under the name of Windflowers. This company was founded by a qualified aromatherapist, selling high quality oils to shops and aromatherapists throughout UK and the world. In 2003 the opportunity came up for Holisticshop to buy Windflowers, which we did. This acquisition has meant that since this time Holisticshop customers have been able to buy high quality oils at the price professional aromatherapists would expect to pay.

    Lower quality oils are available on the market but we continue to pick the best quality source for every oil. For example our lavender oil is "High Alpine" lavender from Mount Ventoux in the Pyrennes and the ylang ylang is the "complete" oil, not the ylang ylang II or III which come from a different stage in the distillation process. In the current climate essential oil prices on the open market have risen quite dramatically and some sellers are cutting quality. We have maintained quality, bought well and kept as competitive as always.

    We do not buy anonymous drums of essential oils on the open market and we do not redistill lower quality oils to remake a “scientifically” higher grade oil that does not smell great (this happens sometimes with ylang ylang). We know the country and the growers of all our oils. Please be assured by the care we take with making sure our oils are great quality. You will smell the difference.

    This Black pepper essential oil smells just like the smell of the black pepper spice. It is a warming oil which I freqently use in blends for joint and muscular blends, such as with rosemary and eucalyptus. It is also very nice combined in a blend with lavender and grapefruit. I haven't found much information for physical uses of black pepper, but another is as an appetite stimulant. There are however quite a few uses for mental states such as dementia, confusion, depression, forgetfulness and amnesia and for intellectual fatigue, working as a stimulant and pick-me-up. Valerie Worwood mentions in the Fragrant Mind that it may help with emotional blockages, compulsions, disorientation, irritability, anger, frustratino, emotional coldness, apathy and for using where someone needs comfort, stamina, endurance and motivating. A warming oil which can spice up a blend, giving it a bit of zing!
