Back pain during labor! Had a home birth in August and it was my first delivery where I wasn’t forced into an epidural. Black pepper seriously takes the edge off without drugging up the baby. He was born much more awake and responsive than my older kids were. Love this stuff! – Linda G.

I add a drop to my chai in the morning; it improves absorption of turmeric, which I take as a supplement for inflammation! It adds a nice bite to my chai (to which I also add ginger and cinnamon), as well. – Jacqui S.

A friend of mine used it to kick a 40+ year smoking habit! She put a couple drops on a cotton ball and placed it in an airtight container (like one that 35mm film used to come in.) When she craved a cigarette, she would pop the top and inhale the aroma from the container for a minute or two and the craving would diminish. If the urge to smoke was too great, she would smoke a cigarette. Gradually, the cravings decreased and in two months she was totally free of nicotine!! And she only used a total of about 6 drops!! – Sheryl B.

I use in combination with White Fir and Wild Orange for Pain Management and emotional support, combination smells great too! – Brenda K.

Add to the oil when making popcorn. Yum. – Debbie W.

We like to diffuse in the mornings with Orange essential oil as a stress reliever before heading out the door. – Patty B.

I haven’t done this yet, but you can diffuse it to rid your house of fleas. Here is the recipe, 10 drops each, Black pepper, Oregano, Orange, Peppermint, 10 drops Cleansing essential oil to be used after cleansing the house. Add the first 4 oils to your diffuser and place in the most central location of your home. Open all interior doors. Diffuse for 2-3 hours, you may need to do each room. Leave the home while diffusing, when you return open all windows. Diffuse cleansing blend for 1-2 hours.
