Black Pepper - The Oil of Unmasking

Black Pepper, I didn't know what I was going to use this oil for when it first came out. But I have grown to love it. I cook with it most of the time, but when I used it on my moms leg for joint discomfort, she was amazed how quickly it worked.  It also aid in those who are trying to quit smoking by reducing craving for nicotine and helps calm withdrawal anxiousness. Here is more on Black Pepper.....
