Black Pepper oil is produced by the steam distillation of the dried, crushed, not-quite-ripe fruits of the pepper plant. Pepper has been esteemed as a spice in India since time immemorial and is dispersed in trade throughout the world. In the Middle Ages in Europe, pepper was of great importance to season and preserve meat and to mask the odors of rancid foods. Pepper is used in Ayurvedic medicine for its carminative, warming and eliminative properties.
