Black Pepper Oil
In the food and beverage industry, Black Pepper essential oil is a popular added flavoring agent in formulations for its spicy, peppery essence. Pepper oil is used in cooking recipes similar to ground pepper to enhance flavor, but it would not be used as a 1:1 ratio. (One teaspoon of black pepper essential oil will have a much greater impact on flavoring than one teaspoon of ground pepper.) Massage therapists often incorporate black pepper oil into their topical blends for its stimulating aroma. Additionally, it is used in aromatherapy and in various personal care applications.
