Black Pepper Essential Oil Organic
Black pepper: Piper nigrum (L.)
Why black pepper? Black pepper was one of the first spices to travel the spice route and was perhaps one of the most expensive and treasured. The characteristically “peppery” aroma is a pungent support for any activity that requires a boost, from daily exercise to waking up in the morning. It is also very uplifting, which, like basil Ocimum basilicum essential oil, makes an interesting and effective addition to shower gels (especially morning shower gels). Add to men’s fragrances or personal care items for a spicy, sporty undertone!
Quality Assured: Our certified organic black pepper essential oil is responsibly sourced from Sri Lanka. The essential oil is steam distilled from the dried, whole, unripe fruit. Every batch of oil is Certified Organic by Oregon Tilth and produced without the use of genetic engineering, artificial fertilizers, or pesticides. Additionally, our expert aromatherapists here at the Apothecary Shoppe personally assess all of our oils—using touch, taste, smell, and lab analyses—to ensure that your essential oil is suitable for clinical use and entirely free of adulterants.
