Black Pepper is best known as a common cooking spice that enhances the flavor of foods, but its internal and topical benefits are equally noteworthy. 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,* 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.*

Definitely a different smell than I expected black pepper would be like, but it makes sense and isn't bad at all. I've been using it in cooking pretty regularly (makes great for beans, salad dressing, and pasta!). Very natural and uplifting, almost citrusy smell. Be careful not to use too much!
