    Interesting, it is not an oil I would think of choosing, instead thinking it as an everyday item. Does consuming the black pepper have a similar effect?

    Good question Deena, my honest answer I don’t know, of course there are benefits to be had in consuming black pepper, but whether that match that of the oil, I can not say. The oils is a highly concentrated version, so my guessed answer would be no, the benefits are different.

    Remember the oil is applied topically along with a base oil.

    I should imagine this is good for sore joints and muscles due to its natural warmth
