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.

Black Pepper oil is known as the oil of unmasking, giving individuals an opportunity to get real with themselves, releasing any misunderstood or seemingly inappropriate feelings and behaviours. (1) Set yourself free and stop hiding behind the idea of what you think you “should” be doing and feeling with this oil.
“Black Pepper re-ignites the soul fire, fueling motivation, high energy and hastening the healing process. It gives an individual strength to overcome the challenges and issues they carry inside and invites them to live in integrity with the Self.” (2)
