Olfactive Description: Spicy, Pungent, Fresh, Woody, Dry, Dusty
A spicy, warm scent, Black Pepper essential oil is steam distilled from the fruit of a flowering vine called piper nigrum, also known as black peppercorns. If you’re considering your own handmade blends, Black Pepper is a well-loved middle note that helps bring together airy florals and heavy spices.
Approved for use in multiple products, we recommend this essential oil for use in candles, wax melts, tarts, and reed diffusers. It’s also safe for use in bath and body products like bar soap, liquid soap, lotion, and scrubs.
Candle Maker’s Notes:
Black Pepper essential oil makes our list of recommended essential oils for candle making. On our soy performance scale, this essential oil has one leaf out of three. So, while it is safe to use in candles and is true to the out-of-bottle scent, it has a light throw in wax.
