Black Pepper Organic (Oshadhi)

Black Pepper Organic Botanical name: Piper nigrumBlack Pepper Organic, Piper nigrum


Black Pepper (Piper nigrum)


A Warming, spicy oil, black pepper has strong antiseptic properties. Its stimulating aroma has a clearing effect on the mind, making this a useful oil for improving focus while its ability to boost circulation can revive tired muscles and joints and speed the healing of bruises.

The Plant


Black peppercorns are the dried fruits of a climbing vine-like shrub native to Indonesia, where the spice is still mainly cultivated today. Best known as a cooking spice, black pepper also has a long-established history of use as a medicinal spice in India and China. Perfumers value black pepper essential oil for adding a spicy warming note to perfume blends.

The Essential Oil


The essential oil of the black peppercorn is steam-distilled from the dried, crushed unripe fruit. The thinly textured oil is an amber to yellow-green colour and has a distinctive pungent, spicy aroma that is both warming and fresh.

What is it good for?


  • Eases aches and pains - Black pepper is rich in monoterpene hydrocarbons, which are known for their analgesic properties. This makes black pepper essential oil a potent ingredient in ointments and salves for aching limbs and sore muscles. It also has a warming action that can relieve sports injuries and improve muscle tone.
  • Stimulates circulation - Black pepper essential oil helps to encourage circulation to the extremities, so use for cold hands and feet. Regular use may also help to improve the appearance of cellulite.
  • Aids detox - The oil encourages perspiration and can be used in small cases to support the effective functioning of the lymphatic system. It also has a mild diuretic effect.
  • Boosts immunity - If you are feeling run down, this essential oil is a good choice as it bolsters the body's defences against infections.
  • Eases breathing - A penetrating oil, black pepper can help loosen and clear congestion in the lungs.
  • Helps to quit smoking - Studies have shown that inhaling black pepper vapours can help reduce cravings for cigarettes.
  • Enhances alertness - The oil imbues a general feeling of warmth than can enhance the senses, and it also helps to clear the mind and bring a sense of clarity that can aid focus, motivation, and stamina, while combating mental fatigue.

Best Uses


  • In a Diffuser - If your 'can do' attitude is feeling a little worn out, add 3-4 drops of black pepper essential oil to a diffuser, vapouriser, or oil burner to improve motivation and help your levels of concentration.
  • As a Massage Oil - For a general massage, black pepper essential oil is best used as part of an oil blend. To make a quick oil blend to reduce bruising and relieve sore muscles and joints, add 15 drops of black pepper oil to 1 tablespoon of base oil, and apply locally.
  • Safe Usage - Non-toxic, non-irratant in dilution.

Blending


Black pepper oil can be blended with lemon, lime, lavender, sage, sandalwood, mandarin, ylang-ylang, juniper, bergamot, clary sage, clove, ginger, geranium, coriander, grapefruit, fennel and frankincense oils.

Essential OilImportant Information


  • * Essential Oils are highly concentrated extracts of medicinal plants, very powerful in their effect and should be used with moderation and great care.

Essential oils used for massage - general instructions for dilution


  • If used other than for ambient diffusion, i.e. for massages, essential oils should always be diluted in a good quality vegetable carrier oil before applying to the skin (i.e. sweet almond, sesame, jojoba, olive oil, etc.).
  • The standard dilution for adults is 1–3% essential oil, or about 3–10 drops of essential oil in 15 ml (= 1 tablespoon) of vegetable oil (20 drops = 1ml).
  • For children, sensitive skin and during pregnancy the dilution should be 0,5%-1% (1-2 drops in 10 ml).
  • For a full bath use for adults 5–15 drops and 3–5 drops for a footbath. The essential oils should be diluted with some carrier oil, a little cream or honey to help them disperse in the water.

Specific oils requiring higher dilution


  • Essential oils of Clove bud, Cinnamon (leaf or bark), Oregano, Savory, Thyme (thymol and borneol) can irritate the skin, use only highly diluted (0.5%—1% dilution).
  • For sensitive skin care should also be taken with Aniseed, Fennel, Lemongrass, Melissa (Balm), Peppermint, Sage, Wintergreen, and sometimes also Basil, Ginger, Lemon and Bitter Orange (1 - 3 % dilution).

Some precautions


  • These oils (except the citrus oils) should also not be used for children under 2 years and during pregnancy.
  • If pregnant avoid in addition: Cedarwood, Clary Sage, Juniper, Sweet Marjoram, and Myrrh.
  • If applying photo-sensitizing essentials oils like Bergamot, Orange, Mandarin or Lemon to your skin (even in dilution) do not expose your skin to direct sun for several hours afterwards (to avoid pigment spots). The furocoumarin free Bergamot is ok.
  • In case of high blood pressure Hyssop, Rosemary, Sage and Thyme (thyme) are contra-indicated; a gentle massage with relaxing essential oils, however, is very beneficial.
  • In case of Epilepsy do not use the essential oils of sweet Fennel, Hyssop, Rosemary and Sage.
  • If you have a medical condition we recommend that you seek the advice of a Maharishi Ayurveda practitioner or aromatherapist.
