Pink Pepper essential oil emanates a piquant, spicy aroma. This botanical has an ancient history winding through central and south America where it has been used as a food and beverage additive dating back to Pre-Colombian times. The leaves have been used in various native healing rituals tied to purification, cleansing and sanctioning peaceful times. 

Pink Pepper’s zesty nature repels some insects. Although not related to commercial black pepper, the pinkish-red berries are sold as pink peppercorns and sometimes blended with black pepper to create a festive appearance.  The Inca used the outer part of ripe fruit to make a beverage, both fermented and not.

Pink Pepper also called “Peruvian Pepper” and “American Pepper” is an evergreen tree that grows to 50 feet. It is native to the Peruvian Andes. The bark, leaves and berries all emit a zesty aroma. The essential oil is produced by distillation of the fruits.
