Native to Asia, this woody plant climbs as high as 20 feet in the wild, with spikes containing up to sixty berries. These are harvested, unripe, at full size, and dried in the sun to develop both flavour and colour. The blackening occurs due to enzymes in the berries and the outer surface becomes wrinkled.
Aromatherapists recommend black pepper oil for headaches, poor circulation, aching muscles, as a natural pain reliever and to combat mental fatigue.
Black pepper oil is found in our PartyFor2 Bath Bomb
