It is often mixed into in massage blends for dancers and those taking part in sporting activities. It can help ease bruising and painful and swollen muscles and joints, especially arthritic or rheumatoid conditions.

It’s a strong oil in both odour and action so should always be well diluted (we suggest a maximum of 1-2% in a blend with other oils – see Blends Well With below). It may also benefit people suffering with rheumatism and arthritis.

Aromatherapists use Black Pepper to treat digestive tract problems due to its antispasmodic properties. It relieves constipation, flatulence and sluggish digestive systems.

It can also be used to treat anaemia as it stimulates the spleen and so assists in the creation of new blood cells.

It can also be used as an aphrodisiac. It physically increases blood flow and sensitivity, and is claimed to heighten passion and emotion.
