Pink Pepper Essential Oil

Pink Peppercorns

I love cooking with pink peppercorns, and one of my peppercorn grinders is full of these stunning little orbs. The aroma of Pink Pepper Essential Oil is reminiscent to the freshly ground pink peppercorns, but it has a somewhat more complex and slightly fruitier/floral aroma. Compared to Black Pepper Oil, I find Pink Pepper Oil to be a bit more pungent in aroma.

Pink Pepper Oil

Aromatically, Pink Pepper Oil has a fresh, peppery aroma. As with Black Pepper Oil, it is not one that I ever use in a diffuser or blend on its own, but it really helps to perk up and add heat and spice to your blends. It is a middle note and can help to bring together fleeting top notes and heavy base notes. Pink Pepper Oil blends well with most other essential oils including other spice oils, citrus and floral oils. It can be used as a substitute for Black Pepper Oil.

Emotionally, Pink Pepper Oil acts as a stimulant and is a good choice for inclusion in blends intended to help enhance alertness and stamina. It should be avoided before bedtime.
