Breast health is a topic that should be discussed more often than just in the month of October, but October does serve as a good time to remind everyone to take care of their breast tissue. In this article I will be discussing the many uses of Pink Pepper essential oil and how to use this oil to support healthy breast tissue.
A sacred tree to the Incans, Pink Pepper essential oil is distilled from the fruit of the pink peppercorn tree, which was used by indigenous people as herbal solutions to health needs.
Pink peppercorn is similar in appearance to black peppercorn except for the obvious color. The “molle,” or pink peppercorn tree, was considered a sacred tree to ancient Incans. Indigenous populations used all parts of the tree, including the pink peppercorn fruit, as herbal solutions to health needs. Pink Pepper may also help the body maintain healthy cellular function and overall cellular health. Limonene and α-Phellandrene, two of the main chemical components of Pink Pepper essential oil, may be calming to the nervous system.
- Supports healthy immune, digestive, and respiratory systems.
- Relaxing to the nervous system.
- May support healthy breast tissue.
- Massage: Create a soothing massage in combination with a carrier oil.
- Nervous System: Take internally, to help soothe the nervous system.
- Invigorating: Blend Pink Pepper with citrus or floral oils to create an invigorating aroma.
- Cellular Function: May help promote healthy cellular immune function and response when consumed.
- Airways: Take internally to support the respiratory system.
- Metabolism: Add to a glass of water and consume daily.
- Brain Fog: Inhale directly from bottle or use in a diffuser.
- Breast Health: Add a few drops to a carrier oil and massage into breasts.
Aromatically, Pink Pepper Essential Oil has a fresh peppery aroma. It is similar to a traditional black pepper aroma, but with brighter and sweater notes. It blends well with other spice, floral, and citrus essential oils. The aroma can be quite stimulating and may help enhance alertness and stamina.
10 Drops Pink Pepper
10 Drops Frankincense
10 Drops Grapefruit
Fractionated Coconut Oil
Add the essential oils to a 10mL roller bottle and top with fractionated coconut oil.
Choose a month each quarter and perform a breast massage each day using this blend. October would be a great time to remind yourself to do this.
For those who may have more breast tissue or would like to perform this detox more often, you can use the recipe below.
5mL Pink Pepper
100mL of Fractionated Coconut Oil
If you grab a bottle of fractionated coconut oil from doTERRA it will be 115mL, remove about two tablespoons, add the essential oils, and add a pump top to your bottle for ease of use.
Note: Grapefruit essential oil can make your skin more sensitive to the sun, so it is best to use this at least 12 hours before you plan to be in the sun or to completely cover the area with sun protective clothing before going into the sun.
Another way to support healthy breasts is by swapping out your conventional deodorant for an aluminum free deodorant or “clean” deodorant. I use one of doTERRA’s deodorants. However, when you are switching to a clean deodorant you may experience a detox/stinky phase. One of my favorite ways to help with this transition is to do an armpit detox. To do this I use the Detoxifying Mud Mask from doTERRA. You will notice that this product is made to be used on the face, but it works well for armpits too. During the transition you can do this armpit detox every day, but I would only use this on my face once or twice a week. After you’ve gotten through the transition, I recommend just putting the mud mask on your armpits whenever you do your face before jumping in the shower.
You can even make your own natural deodorant using Pink Pepper.
You can also apply the Breast Detox Blend on your armpits daily, under your deodorant to support healthy breast tissue.
I also like using Pink Pepper in my dry brushing routine. Dry brushing is the practice of using a brush with coarse, natural fiber bristles and gently brushing over the entirety of the body in a particular pattern. Dry brushing stimulates the lymphatic system by opening the pores and allowing the body to sweat out the toxins. Essential oils can amp up your dry brushing routine and add a little something extra to your skin depending on the oil you use. You could also try adding doTERRA’s new MetaPWR blend with the Pink Pepper. MetaPWR is doTERRA’s metabolic blend that helps with metabolic health and decreasing the maturation of fat cells. MetaPWR and Pink Pepper would blend together nicely for a stimulating dry brushing routine.
