The warm, spicy heat that arises from a bottle of doTERRA Black Pepper essential oil is only a precursor to the powerful and deeply potent benefits its contents will bring you. Although Black Pepper is commonly known as a simple table spice, typically paired with salt, it also offers a variety of internal and topical benefits to the human body that can be enjoyed for a lifetime.

The high content of monoterpenes and sesquiterpenes within Black Pepper essential oil give it antioxidant qualities that serve the body in keeping environmental threats at bay as well as boosting the immune system. Just a couple drops taken internally in a veggie capsule on a daily basis is more than enough to keep you on your feet when foreboding seasonal threats strive to disrupt your rhythms and take you down. 

In addition to playing an important role in supporting a healthy immune system, Black Pepper essential oil also promotes healthy circulation in the body. This is in part due to its warming properties. You can capitalize on the many doTERRA Black Pepper essential oil uses by adding a few drops diluted with Fractionated Coconut Oil to administer a soothing massage.

Another way to partake of the enlivening capabilities of Black Pepper is by applying it to the bottoms of your feet after an afternoon nap or on a morning when staying in bed seems like a better idea than anything else. These few drops of Black Pepper rubbed into your feet will awaken your senses and bring your body to a state of complete alertness, thereby casting aside the fogginess of abandoned slumber.

The power of Black Pepper is also good for soothing anxious feelings that may arise unexpectedly, especially those connected to past traumatic experiences. You can inhale the aroma directly from the bottle, diffuse it in the room, or place a drop beneath your tongue to experience the unmistakable calming and soothing effects.

And, not surprisingly, doTERRA Black Pepper essential oil is also a beautiful and electric addition to dishes and marinades. This concentrated essence of Black Pepper will bring a powerful punch of flavor to your cuisine with less than a drop. Throw in the digestive benefits of this essential oil, and you’ve found yourself a far superior substitute for the stale pepper that usually rests in the center of your kitchen table.*
