black pepper
Black Pepper is best known as a common cooking spice that enhances the flavor of foods, but it’s internal and topical benefits are equally noteworthy. Black Pepper has a chemical structure similar to Melissa, contributing to its reputation as an oil that soothes nerves and lessens anxious feelings. This essential oil is high in monoterpenes and sesquiterpenes, known for their antioxidant activity and ability to help ward off environmental and seasonal threats. Black Pepper promotes healthy circulation both internally and externally, but should be used with caution when applied topically due to its strong warming sensation. It can also help with the digestion of foods, making it an ideal oil to cook with and enjoy both for its flavor and internal benefits.

Black Pepper ✧ The Oil of Unmasking
Black Pepper reveals the masks and façades used to hide aspects of the Self. Since childhood, most individuals have been taught that some feelings and behaviors are “good” while others are not. So instead of seeking to understand seemingly inappropriate feelings and behaviors, they usually judge, condemn and repress them. Individuals learn early on that to be loved and accepted they must hide undesirable aspects of themselves behind a mask or façade.

Black Pepper invites individuals to “get real” by digging deep within the less understood parts of the Self. Whether one’s true motives and feelings are acknowledged or not, they continue to exist. The more these feelings are pushed down, buried and repressed, the more they seek to make themselves known. If they are not honestly dealt with and acknowledged, they will often be expressed through erratic, compulsive or addictive behaviors.

Black Pepper also re-ignites the soul fire, fueling motivation, high energy and hastening the healing process. It gives an individual strength to overcome the challenges and issues they carry inside and invites them to live in integrity with the Self.
