Black pepper essential oil - Piper nigrum L.
Growing on vines, pepper berries turn from green to red and black as they mature. The oil from India is extracted by steam distillation of the dried and crushed peppercorns but is also a by-product of the oleoresin manufacture. The market price is influenced by the crop sizes in Vietnam, Brazil, and Indonesia.
