  • Pepper brings life wherever it needs be alive !
  • Have a good start in the morning for a good day : 2-3 drops of pepper oil under your feet.
  • When libido is lowered..., massage your tummy with pepper oil and lick one drop off you hand as well.
  • Cheese, Swiss fondue, Cheese soufflés, mozzarella salad and cheesy pizzas ? Pepper supports digestion (especially of dairy products).
  • The flavour of the oil is far stronger than that of the beans : clearly superior when it comes to the balance between hot-spicy and pepper flavour. And therefore  easily used in meat sauces, pasta, fruits salads or chocolate.

Pepper climbs up always higher. It can reach 4 feet high thanks to the trees it grows on. It chooses trees with rough bark, chipped or grooved to facilitate the ascent. 

On thin branches, themselves on thin stems, alternate leaves unfurl in the form of large drops of water which go up to heaven and in all directions. Their impetus is reinforced visually by ribs in the direction of the blade. The fruits (or seeds) come in clusters. They are made from small green ball-fruits. They are clustered like garlic braids.

As it is of particular importance, it gave its name to the entire botanical family: the pipericaceae. Culinary and medicinal use in India dates back (with paper records) 2,000 years BC. In 1213 BC also, a grain in each of the nostrils of Ramesses II completed his mummification. Apparentlypepper does not make everybody sneeze ...!
From the beginning, the Roman Empire used to send over a hundred ships a year away to India to bring pepper back. Even if the risky journeys lasted more than a year...

The Arabs, during the conquest of Alexandria in 642, started trading pepper in Europe. European countries used to build entire fleets to monitor this market and bring the precious spice back to their population. Indeed, people suffered of much less
intestinal illnesses from infectious food. It was worth gold.  

Pepper was always a spice luxury even if stands on all tables today. They say for example that in the Middle Ages it was used to mask the taste of tainted meat. Yet the people who could actually afford to buy pepper, probably had no problem preserving and eating unspoiled meat. Its luxury exceeds its flavour: medicinal since ancient times, aiding the absorption of many micronutrients (vitamins B, selenium, beta-carotene ...) So keep your spices in the dark and your essential oil (less fragile) at hand.
