Black pepper essential oil (Piper nigrum) is steam-distilled from the berries (peppercorn) of the Piperceae. However, it’s an oil high in monoterpenes, a chemical constituent know to have a powerful impact on the body in many ways. The aroma of black pepper is spicy, musky, warm, and you guessed it…peppery. Black pepper’s major active principle, piperine, has been shown to have many beneficial health attributes including possible anticancer properties, which is why researchers have looked at it for inclusion in diet therapy for cancer treatment as well as cancer prevention.
Eliminates Excess Gas
Black pepper essential oil is carminative and helps remove gases and prohibit additional gas formation in the stomach and in the intestines. It also helps inhibit bacteria that are responsible for the formation of gas.
SystemBlack pepper oil has mild purgative properties, but it is safe for the system, unlike other purgatives like castor oil. It helps clean the intestines and at the same time, reduces infections in the digestive and the excretory system.
Reduces Arthritis Pain
This is one of the best qualities of black pepper oil. Black pepper essential oil stimulates and improves circulation, thereby giving immediate relief for rheumatism and arthritis. It is also effective in removing toxins like uric acid from the blood, thereby benefiting people suffering from chronic rheumatism, arthritis, and gout.
Black pepper oil, when ingested, increases sweating and urination. Both of these properties play an important role in the removal of toxins from the body, clearing of the pores on the skin, and disinfecting the body. Sweating and urinating help eliminate extra water and fat from the body, thereby reducing weight, lowering blood pressure and making the body very relaxed. These properties are also helpful for reducing inflammation.
This is yet another beneficial property of black pepper oil. It protects the body from damages done by oxidants (free radicals) and also helps to repair those damages that have already been done. It also delays adverse effects of aging such as vision loss, macular degeneration, wrinkling of the skin, degeneration, and loosening of the muscles, loss of mobility in the joints, nervous disorders, and memory loss.
