Free UK Delivery When You Spend £25 Or More
Black Pepper Essential Oil is frequently used in aromatherapy for its energising and stimulating aroma. Considered to help motivate and bring clarity, this warm spicy, oil brings a middle note to aromatherapy blends. It is better suited to blending with other oils than using on its own. It blends well with most oils and brings a spicy warm element to the blend. It is great for using in a diffuser or oil burner.
Black Pepper Essential Oil is particularly useful in massage. When combined with a carrier oil and applied topically, it can have a warming effect on the skin, enhancing the benefits of massage. Stimulating and energising, ideal to wake up tired muscles.
Dilute at a percentage of 1% of the finished blend, 1ml of essential oil (approx. 20 drops) to 100ml of carrier oil. Do not use undiluted on the skin. You can use up to 3% dilution for use on your body or in the bath. Consult your doctor or midwife before using during pregnancy.
Combine with your favourite essential oils to bring a warming heat to your blend. We love Orange (#105), Lemon (#103) and Rosewood (#137).
Make your own warming massage blend by combining Black Pepper with Grapeseed Oil (#210), Rosemary (#108), Ginger (#118), Marjoram (#127) and Lemon (#103) for a warming and invigorating massage.
Beauty Hack: Combine 1ml or approx. 20 drops of Black Pepper Oil with 30g Beeswax (#307) and 70ml of a carrier oil of your choice to create a simple heat muscle rub.
