Black Pepper Essential Oil

Black pepper is the most common and potent flavoring of the peppercorn family.

It was used by Egyptians in mumification as evidenced by the discovery of black pepper in the nostrils and abdomen of Ramses II. Indian monks ate several black peppercorns a day to give them endurance during their arduous travels. In ancient times pepper was as valuable as gold or silver. Black Pepper essential oil comes from Madagascar. This spice has been commonly used across the world while the essential oil is less known. Its distinctive, peppery flavor makes it a common addition to many recipes, from appetizers to entrees. When using the essential oil of black pepper please remember it is more potent than sprinkling pepper at the table.

Black Pepper essential oil and Black Pepper Vitality are the same essential oil.

Diffusing Notes

These are approximate drops.  Adjust recipes to your needs.  If a recipe is too strong for you, add fewer drops.  Do you need more?  Just add more, but no more than 8-12 drops for all of our diffusers with the exception of the Aria diffuser which requires 15-25 drops.

Tip:  When you first begin diffusing, start with less essential oil than listed in the recipes and build to more as desired.  You should give your body time to adjust to the essential oils.  Almost all the Young Living diffusers are ultrasonic which provides a cool-mist humidifier along with the essential oils.  These diffusers are safe to run all day.  Pay attention to the size of the room because the size will impact the intensity of diffusing.  Nebulizers and atomizers are different than ultrasonic diffusers because they do not use water.  For these, note the time limit for diffusing stated on each individual oil bottle.
