The Black Pepper Essential Oil is naturally extracted from plants grown in India - no chemical process involved. This essential oil has topical and internal benefits. Black Pepper essential oil can be used to add spice and sharpness when cooking as well - I never used it for that purpose though.
Did you know that black pepper (Piper Nigrum) is a flowering vine, not a tree? It is in the Piperaceae family, cultivated for its fruit, known as a peppercorn, which is usually dried and used as a spice and seasoning. When fresh and fully mature, the fruit is about 5 mm (0.20 in) in diameter and dark red, and contains a single seed, like all drupes. Peppercorns and the ground pepper derived from them may be described simply as pepper. The colors depend on the process used after harvesting. Black pepper is cooked dried unripe fruit, green pepper is dried unripe fruit, while white pepper is ripe fruit.
