Pink Pepper Essential Oil

Botanical Name

Schinus molle

Parts Used


Extraction Method

Steam distilled

Note Classification



Sweet, spicy yet fruity, with a dry balsamic peppery back note


Pink pepper is botanically unrelated to black pepper, but is used in many of the same ways as both a spice and essential oil. The essential oil has a sweeter note to it than the more traditional black pepper oil, and can be used interchangeably in most aromatherapy and perfumery blends. In aromatherapy, pepper essential oils have an affinity with the digestive and circulatory systems.


1/2 oz. and 1 oz. essential oils are packaged in amber glass bottles with drop reducers for easy application. Larger sizes are packaged in amber screw cap bottles and do not come with reducers or droppers.

Herbal Miscellany

There are two species of Schinus that are found on the market. Both are often referred to as Pink Pepper. Schinus molle, also known as Peruvian pepper, is mostly used to produce the essential oil. Schinus terebinthifolius, or Brazilian pepper, is found more often on the market as a whole dried berry.


This oil has no known precautions. Never use essential oils undiluted, in eyes or mucus membranes. Do not take internally unless working with a qualified and expert practitioner. Keep away from children.

Before using topically, perform a small patch test on your inner forearm or back by applying a small quantity of diluted essential oil and apply a bandage. Wash the area if you experience any irritation. If no irritation occurs after 48 hours it is safe to use on your skin.
