Interesting Black Pepper Essential Oil Information
Black pepper is one of the worlds most heavily traded spices, and has been for centuries. It grows in the tropics, mainly India, Indonesia, Vietnam and Madagascar. The plant is a long living, woody vine that climbs up other trees or is given structures to climb on when it is being cultivated. The oil is steam-distilled from the unripe berries that are then cooked, dried and then distilled. White pepper, which is popular in the culinary field, is Piper nigrum, but it is the ripe fruit that has had the red outer skin removed.
