Spice up your life and inspire clean, calming energy with Black Pepper Essential Oil. Steam distilled from the peppercorns of the Piper nigrum plant, this essential oil offers a distinct scent that’s peppery, stiff, and earthy, with a hint of underlying floral notes.

It’s a rich source of a natural antioxidant called piperine, which offers many Black Pepper essential oil benefits for health and wellness. The piperine in Black Pepper oil helps open blood vessels, which reduces inflammation and promotes better circulation. It may help lower the risk of cardiovascular disease and conditions like high blood pressure. 

Thanks to piperine, Black Pepper also enhances the body’s ability to absorb other beneficial compounds like vitamins and minerals. This makes Black Pepper essential oil an excellent addition to DIY blends designed to boost the immune system, improve digestive health, or support respiratory function.

Other Black Pepper essential oil benefits include helping people quit smoking, opening congested airways, treating mold and fungus, and repelling insects like mosquitoes. You can also use Black Pepper with a carrier oil to promote healthier skin, hair, and nails.

  • Does Black Pepper essential oil smell like peppercorns?

  • Will Black Pepper essential oil make you sneeze?

    No! Although sniffing fresh ground pepper will irritate your nostrils and make you sneeze or cough, Black Pepper essential oil has a gentler aroma that won’t cause irritation. However, when you diffuse Black Pepper, do not put your face in the direct line of mist. We also recommend diluting Black Pepper oil with a carrier oil before using it anywhere on your skin for extended periods.

  • Does Black Pepper oil help you quit smoking?

    Yes, helping people quit smoking is one of the most popular Black Pepper essential oil uses. Studies show that the aroma of Black Pepper essential oil can help curb nicotine cravings. If you are trying to quit smoking, try diffusing Black Pepper, or blend it with a carrier oil to apply topically. You can also meditate with Black Pepper essential oil to promote mindfulness and use this practice to self-soothe any anxiety related to nicotine withdrawals. 

  • Can you cook with Black Pepper essential oil?

    No. Black Pepper essential oil is not a cooking oil and is not intended for internal use. Do not ingest Black Pepper oil. To add a peppery flavor to your recipes, use freshly ground black pepper from your spice cabinet instead.
