Black pepper – Essential oil
Black pepper – Essential oil
Format: 5 ml
In the Middle Ages, black pepper was scarce and was used as currency. The wealth of a nobleman could be evaluated according to the quantity he possessed. Nowadays, it can be found in our kitchens. Pepper essential oil adds spice to cooking and has several attractive facets. By its richness in piperine, in diffusion or olfaction, it stimulates the production of endorphins. 1
It can even restore the appetite. In 2008, a study was conducted on the effects of olfactory stimulation with black pepper oil in pediatric patients receiving long-term liquid supplements or tube feeding due to neurological disorders. In 8 of 10 patients, the black pepper oil intervention continued for three months, and five patients showed an increase in the amount of oral intake.2
This oil helps to add spice to cooking and has many appealing facets to discover outside the kitchen!
