Nourish your senses… with the warm and spicy aroma of Black Pepper

p1030176

Hi everyone, autumn time brings a need for cosiness… that feeling of been cocooned in warmth, whether it be food, clothing or a deeply relaxing and nurturing massage. Therefore as the temperatures become cooler we can benefit from a warming essential oil, such as Black Pepper to ease tired achy muscles and boost circulation!

Black Pepper is a very commonly used spice for culinary purposes, known as ‘king of the spices’.  It has a hot taste and a warm, spicy and pungent aroma, adding flavour and warmth to our daily meals.

Within the world of aromatherapy Black Pepper essential oil is extracted from the fruit of the scrub, using the steam distillation method.  The oil is derived from Black Pepper rather than white as it contains greater quantities and much more aromatic!

Firstly, it is  a very stimulating oil, helping to strengthen the nerves and emotions, warming the heart and blends extremely well with Rose, adding a calming floral note.  Try adding a few drops to a diffuser to help ease anxious feelings.

The most beneficial means of using any essential oils is through a massage, not only are you experiencing a relaxing massage but the aromatic scents and therapeutic properties enhance the overall treatment experience.  Therefore, using Black Pepper in massage is more beneficial when combined other essential oils, increasing its overall therapeutic properties.  Try blending it with Cedarwood, creating a calming and grounding effect, and relaxing the body and mind. 

Black Pepper is also beneficial in helping to ease muscular aches, pains and tired and aching limbs.  It is a great oil for sport enthusiast, especially after a rigorous workout, to help ease muscle discomfort.

As it is a warming and stimulating oil, it helps to boost circulation, therefore aiding and giving some relief to those suffering  with rheumatism and arthritis.  Due to these properties it is useful in expelling toxins from the body.

Black Pepper is extremely beneficial in the overall digestive system.  It stimulates the salvia glands and  promotes secretion of digestive juices, having an overall strengthen effect and therefore facilitating digestion.

Blends well with: Bergamot, Cypress, Frankincense, Cedarwood, Geranium, Grapefruit,                                                       Rose, Rosemary, Sandalwood and Ylang Ylang.

Precautions: Too much can over stimulate the kidneys and cause possible skin irritation.

So a good twist of black pepper not only adds flavour to our food, but has an entire list of benefits!
