The spicy stimulating nature of Black Pepper has been revered for thousands of years for its warming and activating effects.
Nature/Essence – Warm & Stimulating
Black Pepper dispels cold and stagnation in the body and stimulates activity, making it ideal for weak or sluggish digestion and constipation, and also in massage oils to encourage circulation and ease tired, aching muscles and stiff joints. Great applied before or after strenuous exercise, and helps clear bruising, pain and coldness (chilblains, cold hands and feet, sore joints)..
Black Pepper energises the mind and strengthens the nervous system, encouraging progress and action when we feel stuck or ‘frozen’.
Black Pepper’s stimulating nature is said to have an aphrodisiac effect (although use late at night with care as it may interfere with sleep!)
