Black Pepper Essential Oil is a warming oil that has a stimulating effect on body and mind; a great one to add to the burner if you have a task to do to (its a very powerful oil, so a little goes a long way). It may also help to improve circulation and ease digestive problems. Black Pepper essential oil is commonly used in athletic massage rubs (its one of the star ingredients in our best-selling Muscle & Joint Gel). It's properties are often thought to be similar to those of capsicum. Historically it's been used as a muscle relaxant and an aphrodisiac for thousands of years. It's also said to help improve concentration.
