What's the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the word Aromatherapy? Some people think about scents and fragrances. Some even think it's some luxury spa treatment. Well, their not entirely incorrect.

Ever heard of Black Pepper Essential Oil? That's right! This spice isn't only used for flavoring your favorite foods but also for aromatherapy. Black Pepper Essential Oil actually promotes bowel movement, healthy digestion and relieves constipation!
So what's the point?
Should you replace all the prescription drugs in your medicine cabinet with Essential Oils? No! Aromatherapy does not replace medicine! Aromatherapy is your effective 100% natural alternative.
It's imperative when purchasing essential oils that they're in their purest form. Do not apply essential oils directly to the skin. Always use a carrier oil such as Coconut Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Olive Oil etc as a base, then apply a few drops of your desired essential oil.
