Black Pepper (Piper nigrum)

With noteworthy topical and internal benefits, Black Pepper essential oil can be used to add spice and sharpness when cooking, or to ward off seasonal and environmental threats.

This essential oil is high in monoterpenes and sesquiterpenes, known for their antioxidant activity and ability to help ward off environmental and seasonal threats.

Essential Oil Recipe of the Week – On Guard Pumpkin Pancakes

I love making these pancakes when the temperature turns cold and germs start flying about.  On Guard is a great immune boosting oil blend (see my On Guard Oil of the Week post here).

Start with a batch of pancake batter.  You can use store bought powder or make from scratch.  Whatever makes you giggle.

After you’ve made your batter add in 1 cup of pumpkin puree.  Again you can use canned or a fresh pumpkin that you’ve previously pureed.  Mix well.

Then add 4-6 drops of On Guard oil (to your taste).  Mix well.  Cook as usual.  Enjoy as you wish.
