Piper Nigrum (Pepper) Fruit Oil
One of my favourite oils. It has helped me with all sorts of problems from warming muscles, providing pain relief and being part of my rundown and cold/cough blend.
A nice aroma to add to others (like orange or clove) when I want to have a bit of a lift in my diffuser
Spicy and earthy to put in my diffuser when I want to start the day feeling grounded.
This oil has a nice sharpness to it on it's own. It also blends very well with the calming oils.T
A good black pepper oil. I use it in a vaporiser, and it is like adding some ground pepper to my life. Invigorating, but without the sneezing, when smelling it.
