DoTERRA’s Black Pepper oil is steam distilled from the unripened sun dried Peppercorns, whereas the spices that are popular the world over are generally taken from the plant later in it’s life cycle when it is more mature. These plants are now grown all over the world in tropical areas.
Black Pepper is most widely used for it’s digestive properties. It increases digestive fluids in the digestive tract while also decreasing gas and bloating and cleansing the system. Black pepper is a warming oil that is wonderfully comforting when used in assisting with arthritis and other inflammatory issues. It can be applied topically to relieve sore joints and muscles and improve circulation.
