Petitgrain Essential Oil

Petitgrain is sometimes thought of as the “poor man’s neroli”. as it is derived from the same tree. However while neroli is extracted form the flowers (making it much more costly), petitgrain is extracted from the leaves and twigs resulting in a much higher yield.

Petitgrain essential oil helps promote feelings of relaxation and is helpful in creating a calm, relaxed environment. Diffuse it with Lavender and Bergamont before going to bed.

My New Favorite Essential Oil – Black Pepper

Everyday I am discovering more and more about Essential Oils. My new favorite is Black Pepper oil. The benefits of Black Pepper Oil are amazing, here are a few:

  • Black pepper essential oil has a spicy, warm, peppery and musky aroma. It’s commonly used to aid the digestive and nervous systems —  promoting emotional balance, stimulating circulation, reducing cholesterol levels. and stimulating appetite
  • Use black pepper essential oil to aid digestion and respiratory conditions, help detoxify the body, and add flavor to your food. (Only use food grade Essential Oils for cooking)
  • One of the most well-researched benefits of black pepper oil is its ability to help you quit smoking. When inhaled it has proved to help people quit smoking more easily, creating a warming sensation in the throat and chest
  • Black pepper oil also helps ease nervousness and feeling anxious or anxious feelings when inhaled or diffused.
  • When using black pepper oil topically, dilute it with a carrier oil first because it can be a strong irritant.
