Pepper originally comes from India and has long been used there as a remedy and seasoning. Pepper has been cultivated in Europe since ancient times, as a medicine on the one hand and as a spice on the other.
Peppercorns owe their spiciness or “heat” to the ingredient piperine. Because it does not pass into the essential pepper oil during steam distillation, the essential pepper oil is not hot and stands out with its extremely mild and tasty fragrance.
Pepper green oil is a physically and mentally activating, invigorating oil that stimulates blood circulation. Pepper oil in skin care products stimulates blood circulation and the skin’s metabolism and is therefore ideally suited for detoxes, weight loss treatments and for tightening skin tissue. Yet also people who suffer from cold hands and feet or from frigidity on a psychological level can benefit from the use of pepper oil.
Pepper oil can also be used for back pain because the increased blood circulation warms and relaxes the muscles.
