Spotlight on Pink Peppercorn

pink_peppercorn_oil
Pink Peppercorn Oil - slightly sweeter than Black Pepper on the nose, useful for assisting alertness and stamina. Our Australian Pink Peppercorn oil is produced from the peppercorns found from trees in the western plains of NSW and northern Victoria.
Take a journey down many of our beautiful country towns and you'll notice streets littered with Peppercorn trees. Funnily enough, this tree Schinus molle is not a native to Australia despite it's widespread appearance. Pink Peppercorn is actually a Peruvian native.
Brought to Australia in the mid 1800s as a tree that could thrive on dramatic climate changes in arid areas, mostly were planted in public spaces for decoration.
The culinary uses for American Pepper as it's otherwise known are now widespread and fun fact, it's actually a member of the Cashew family - a warning to those with tree nut allergies.
On the oil front - a newer oil to the range for many, this pure essential oil is starting to hold it's own amongst the popular list.
We recommend teaming it with citrus and wood for a calming blend or substituting Black Pepper Oil for Pink Peppercorn Oil in massage applications on tired muscles.
