Black pepper can be irritating and should not be used neat on the skin. It is incompatible with homeopathic treatments. Use in low concentrations, use in 1% dilution when applying to the skin in massage oils. Not recommended for use in baths. Store this oil carefully as the high monoterpene content leaves the oil vulnerable to oxidising. Once oxidised, Black Pepper oil is more likely to cause serious skin irritation or sensitisation.
