Black Pepper

It prevents chilblains, promotes blood circulation and soothes muscle aches. It is a strong antibacterial and anti-oxidant. It is also used to fight gastrointestinal problems.
If placed in wardrobes, it works as insect repellent.

Suggested uses and dosage:

  • Home diffuser: add between 3 and 6 drops to 100 ml of water. We suggest to use it together with other essential oils.
  • Bathtub: emulsify 5-7 drops of essential oil with coarse salt — or alternatively milk, cream, or honey — to add to the hot water (so that the oil doesn’t evaporate due to the heat)
  • Massages: we recommend to dilute 1-2 drops of essential oil in a tablespoon of carrier oil
  • Cosmetics: less than 1% in perfumes
  • Food: we recommend 1 drop per 300-400 gr of food, to add after cooking (we suggest to always start with the lower dose and then increase it later, if preferred).
    This essential oil is perfect for the preparation of some cocktails.

Caution: use with moderation, it can cause skin irritations. Do not use in case of chronic diseases, pregnancy, or when breastfeeding.
If in doubt, please consult your doctor/naturopath.
