When the mind becomes tired or dull before an important project is completed, green pepper essential oil can revive the mind and the spirits, helping one to stay awake and focused for a bit longer. Green pepper is considered an aphrodisiac.
Like black pepper, green pepper can be used as an expectorant. It can also be used to improve muscle tone.
Green pepper essential oil is derived from the green berries of the Piper nigrum plant, while black pepper essential oil is derived from the ripened and dried berries.
