Pink Pepper Essential Oil

Pink Pepper Essential Oil (Schinus molle L.) from Kenya is Therapeutic Quality Essential Oil steam distilled from the fruit / berry.

Pink Pepper Essential Oil Distillation & Source:

Pink Pepper Tree is also known as Redberry oil. This essential oil has a crisp, fresh, spicy, slightly fruity aroma. Although not related to Black Pepper, the pink berries are sold as pink peppercorns and sometimes blended with Black Pepper to create a festive blend. Pink Pepper oil is said to help aid in colds, flu, and upper respiratory infections.

The scent of Pink Pepper EO is fresh, dry, and spicy. Aromatically, this oil blends well with frankincense, sandalwood, and with tiny amounts of lavender, rose and other florals and, of course, it makes me sneeze. It is quite similar too and can be used much like our Artisan Aromatics Black Pepper oil.

Pink peppercorns came to be called such because they resemble peppercorns, and because they, too, have a peppery flavor. Persons with nut allergies should use extra caution since this berry is a member of the cashew family. These berries may may cause allergic reactions.

History of the Pink Pepper (Redberry) Plant:

This berry is native to Peru but is now grown in quite a few other countries.

In traditional Peruvian medicine, Schinus molle has been used in treating a variety of wounds and infections due to its antibacterial and antiseptic properties. It has also been used as an antidepressant and diuretic, and other disorders in Peru’s traditional medicine.

The fresh green leaves have been used shamanically in Mesoamerican traditional ceremonies and also for natural dyeing of textiles in the Andean region. The tradition of using the berries as dye dates back to pre-Columbian times. The Incas used the oil from its leaves in early mummification practices to preserve and embalm their dead.

SPECIFIC SAFETY CONSIDERATIONS:  Pink Pepper essential oil can cause skin sensitization and can cause reactions in those with nut allergies.

The warm, mild, dry spicy aroma of this oil will remind you of freshly ground black peppercorns but a bit less intense. A bit too strong when diffused by itself, Pink Pepper EO can add warmth and spice up diffuser blends. This essential oil blends well with oils such as Bergamot Essential Oil, Frankincense Essential Oil, and Rosemary Essential Oil. Pink Pepper is an excellent choice to help in reducing muscle tension and the perception of pain after a hard workout but, of course, use proper dilution and do not use this oil on the skin if undiluted.

More info on this essential oil can be found on Wiki.
