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 are used for a variety of digestive and circulatory complaints.
